Though glimpsed by many people for the first time on an episode of The Amazing Race, the desert acres traversed by Fort McDowell Adventures are steeped in millennia of Yavapai Indian history. Guides lead visitors across the Arizonan foothills on a range of outdoorsy and sometimes anachronistic adventures, such as cattle drives and Segway tours through the Sonoran desert, kayaking adventures on the Verde River, and nature walks with Yavapai Indians. These excursions often end in nighttime wiener roasts, s'mores, and cocktails, a break from the frontier tradition of telling campfire sci-fi stories.
Activities at Fort McDowell Adventures’s four venues further immerse guests in the American Western experience. They gather for Dutch oven–style cowboy cookouts and depart for wilderness excursions from The Stables. At La Puesta del Sol, guests pass through a Spanish mission entrance into a dining hall, saloon, stage, and dance floor, and at Rosa's Ranch, they gather under the stars and around cookout fire pits nestled between rustic wooden ranch buildings. Groups dine at The Boulder House, named on the National Registry of Historic Places, whose rock walls bear evidence of petroglyphs, Native American occupation, and ancient spelunking expeditions.
Italian for "your wine," Su Vino doesn't only curate a lineup of award-winning varietals, it also crafts custom wines to suit even the most discerning palates. Inside an eye-catching tasting room, Su Vino Winery pairs glasses and bottles of its vintages with a menu of light appetizers and sensuous desserts. Red wines such as the jam-flavored cabernet sauvignon/merlot blend and peppery zinfandel pour crimson into tasting glasses, whereas white wines—including the tongue-twisting gewürztraminer—immerse taste buds in crisp, off-dry tones. They also open their bottle-lined space to guests interested in hosting a birthday party, bridal shower, or scared-straight event for delinquent grapes.
Great-grandmas and flat-screen TVs don't have much in common. But if one were to draw a Venn diagram for the two, they would overlap with Home Movie Preservation Center. Equipped with digital tools, the center's team of video technicians rescues home footage of great-grandmas and other memories from deteriorating formats and gives it a new home on high-quality DVDs. The staff is adept at filling their DVDs with transfers from an array of media types, including photos, slides, and audiocassettes and VHS, MiniDV, 8mm, and Super 8mm film.
The Venue Scottsdale is a chameleon of a building, as ready to effortlessly host an elegant wedding reception as it is to present a comedy show or concert. The 29,000 square-foot, multi-level confines feature an indoor cobblestone courtyard and leaf-covered balconies, offering an outdoorsy ambience without the worry of inclement weather. Upstairs, a ballroom and a VIP lounge welcome private event goers, while a comedy club inspires knock-knock jokes with its own private entrance.
At Sassi, the goal is to immerse guests in an authentic Italian experience—from the moment they approach the restaurant, with its terra-cotta roof and burbling courtyard fountain, to their last bite of cannoli della casa. In between, diners are met with handmade pastas, artisanal cheeses, and cured meats, to name a few. Though many of the ingredients for these dishes are grown locally, Sassi imports its time-honored tradition of hospitality from southern Italy. This warm and welcoming atmosphere never changes, though the dinner menu tends to rotate monthly to better reflect seasonal ingredients. The same goes for the drink menu, which features cocktails mixed with local citrus fruits, and shots of vodka sauce crafted in-house. While the menu introduces guests to the tastes of Italy, the restaurant itself introduces them to the country's decor. Each separate dining space transports visitors to a different room in an Italian villa—from the wine room dining area with its earthy tones and barrel-vault ceiling, to the kitchen dining room with its rustic exposed beams and stonework walls. And Sassi’s location at the base of Pinnacle Peak means that guests can drink in views of the granite summit while they dine.
