Posted on: November 11th, 2016 by Taryn Jeffries No Comments

For about the last two months I have been doing Facebook Live videos letting you know my picks for the top four spots you should check out. In order to make sure that no one misses a bite, I thought I should start cross posting – so here we are! I hope you find it helpful!

While there are always a ton of culinary events going on every weekend, I try to suss out the most interesting, fun, or unique events. So here we go!

Four For the Weekend: 11.11.2016 through 11.13.2016

Where | Rustic Stuff | 16495 N. Scottsdale Road | Scottsdale | 85260
What | With the holidays quickly approaching, its a great time to figure out the best wines to pair with all those desserts that you’re going to be presented with. Chocolate Stars USA will be hosting a series of tastings and demos led by chocolate makers from around the world. The demonstrations will range from How to Taste Chocolate, Cacao Regions and Flavor Profiles, and From Tree to Bar, each lasting about an hour.
How Much | I have looked and looked and looked and cannot find a cost associated with this event. That doesn’t necessarily mean that there isn’t a cost – just that I can’t find one.

number-3

Where | Tempe Kiwanis Park | 5500 S. Mill Ave. | Tempe | 85283

Okay, now that you know what a pupusa is, you’re definitely going to want to check out the festival on Sunday. There will several pupusa booths set up, offering a variety of flavors. On top of all the delicious pupusa creations, there will also be live music, lawn games, desserts, a kid’s zone, and more.
How Much | General admission tickets are $5 before the event and $10 at the door.
