Check, Please! Arizona Festival

Posted on: April 22nd, 2013 by Taryn Jeffries No Comments

A little over a year ago, I was one of the diners on Check, Please! Arizona. It was such a fun experience. If you forgot about it, head over here to check it out.

If you have ever caught any of the episodes and wanted a chance to check out the restaurants noted on the show, here’s a great chance to knock a lot of them out in one afternoon.
