Top 10 Reasons to Attend

by RNLA's Arizona Board of Governors member, Kory Langhofer

  1. We Have Next-Level Mexican Food.  They don’t have food like this on the East Coast.
    1. Richardson’s of New Mexico.  Order the carne adovada and thank me later.  If possible, get a table in the basement.
    2. Carolina’s.  The best Mexican comfort food (e.g., salsa and tortillas) in town.  The locals order a burro “double wrapped” (i.e., with two tortillas). 
    3. Barrio Café.  This is what happens when a skilled chef opens a Mexican restaurant.
    4. Tacos Chiwas.  As you might have guessed, they serve tacos in the style of Chihuahua, Mexico.
  2. We Have Classy Pools.  After remodeling, the Biltmore has seven pools with poolside service.  A staycation favorite for Phoenicians.
  3. We Have World-Class Golf.  You can play the Phoenix Open course—including the inimitable sixteenth hole.  Reservations necessary—and start as early as possible to beat the heat.  (Pro tip: Churro French Toast in Toro, the clubhouse restaurant.)
  4. We Have the Best Rocks.  In Sedona, the rocks are red.  At the Grand Canyon, the rocks are eroded.  In Antelope Canyon, the rocks are both red and eroded.  (And as a bonus, rock watchers will enjoy cooler temperatures than in Phoenix.)
  5. We Have Cold Drinks.
    1. Platform 18.  A cocktail bar inside a fake train car.  Reservations are necessary.
    2. Undertow.  A tiki bar inside a real basement.  Reservations are necessary.
    3. Pigtails.  A libations bar hidden behind an oyster bar.  Reservations recommended.
    4. Highball Cocktail Bar.  A small, upstairs bar a block from my house.  Great for conversations.  Reservations recommended.
    5. The Duce.  A hipster bar and a boxing ring and a movie theater and a food truck and a clothes store and a conference center.  It’s so weird it feels like Austin.  No reservations necessary.  Fair warning:  They don’t have air conditioning (only evaporative cooling).
  6. We Don’t Mind if Cowboy Kitsch Is Your Guilty Pleasure.  It’s not for everyone.  But if it’s your thing, try the Rusty Spur Saloon or Buffalo Chip Saloon or Rustler’s Rooste.  But maybe you shouldn’t tell anyone that you’re into it.
  7. Our Outdoor Sports Are Awesome (for Early Risers, at Least).  If you go hiking at noon in Phoenix in the summer, you assume the risk.  But if you wake up early and bring water, there’s so much to do.  You can hike Camelback Mountain (not for the faint of heart) or Piestewa Peak (easier but not easy).  You can run on the Canal Path, which is probably the best path in Phoenix and, conveniently, is right next to the Biltmore.  You can mountain bike in the Phoenix Sonoran Preserve (flowy) or on South Mountain (technical to extremely technical).  Something for everyone.
  8. We Have American Indian Art.  The Heard Museum has some of the best American Indian art in the world.
  9. We Have CLE Credits.  Up to nine hours.  Enough said.
  10. We (Will) Have GOP Nominees.  You might get to meet candidates for U.S. Senate, Arizona Governor, and Arizona Attorney General.  Be careful; they will ask you for money.
