Read on for the insider information on al-fresco entertaining favorites, small business anniversaries, and more. Did we miss something that’s on your radar? Let us know at [email protected].

PLAY // Take us out to the ball field because Spring Training is back @thecactusleague! Enjoy an afternoon or evening at the Charro Lodge with friends, co-workers and family. Spring training is the premier annual fundraising event for the Charros. Funds raised through the sale of Charro Lodge passes, and stadium and magazine advertising are donated back to the community. Over the last five decades, the Scottsdale Charros and The Charro Foundation have donated millions of dollars back to the community through grants and donations to local nonprofits and schools in the Scottsdale Unified School District. View the schedule…

HOST // We’re delighting in beautiful, spring-time weather with many al-fresco meals shared with friends and family. To keep entertaining simple, we’re tapping urbAna for the most adorable paper entertaining-ware. P.S. When you stop in to shop, don’t forget to congratulate the team on their latest venture: a toy shop! Shop online, in-store, or via phone

CELEBRATE // MAN Atelier celebrated one year is business with good tunes, sips, and the latest styles! As the brother store to fashion forward AMY Atelier, the opening of MAN in 2021 has elevated the style game of men all over town. Learn more…
