This is one of my favorite Scottsdale Culinary Pre-events because they have a ton or burgers, a ton! You will not leave this place hungry and the energy is pumping. Plus, you get the opportunity to get your hands on one of the Arizona Foodie Magazines because I’ll be there with a table representing. So hurry up and grab your ticket before they’re all gone.
