Painted Horse's boyish chef and owner, Bryan Elliott, serves up a casual lunch menu and dinner menu that still manage to project a classy sophistication. Come in at high noon and engage in a tense tortilla-chip stand-off with dining companions over fresh tableside guacamole ($8) before indulging in a huge, meaty TBH burger, with American Kobe, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and onion ($12). Hopelessly lost seafarers, meanwhile, can console themselves with a specialty fish-taco plate made with the catch of the day, pico de gallo, and ancho ranch with Asian coleslaw ($14). In the evening, feast eyes on the café's views of the sun setting over the Sonoran Desert while other body parts do the same to an appetizer of pork tenderloin sliders with caramelized onion and horseradish cream ($8). Higher-magnitude hungers will require the raspberry-chipotle baby back ribs with fries and Asian slaw ($26), which can find a leggy dance partner among Painted Horse's red and white wines. Spaghetti-western fans, meanwhile, can dine on western spaghetti with the TPH pasta—grilled chicken breast, peppers, and onions in a chipotle citrus cream ($20). A dessert, such as a chocolate and English-toffee brownie ($8) or half-baked chocolate-chip cookie ($8) gives your meal a far sweeter finish than its originally scripted ending, where you find the Statue of Liberty half-buried in the sand.

In life and at C3 Kitchen, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. From 7 a.m. onwards, staff begin cooking up healthy dishes to start the day. They put together plates of bagels with cream cheese, lox, and veggies, and layer egg sandwiches with a choice of meat on a buttermilk roll. As for drinks, they don't just pour coffee. Instead, they offer multiple brewing styles and coffee drinks, from french press to chemex to espresso. After the breakfast rush, chefs switch over to hot and cold sandwiches and salads that follow traditional comfort-food recipes such as the roast beef and coleslaw, as well as healthy alternatives such as lemon-dijon salads and veggie wraps.

Liberty Wildlife aims to protect wildlife as a precious natural resource as well as serve as a permanent community resource to connect the public with nature and encourage stewardship of native wildlife. The organization educates the public through classroom and civic events that spotlight animals that cannot be released. It also promotes conservation research in habitat restoration, mortality investigations, and human conflicts with wildlife to prevent harm to local animals.

In addition to education and advocacy work, Liberty Wildlife works on the ground by conducting expeditions to rescue and rehabilitate injured animals. Its Rescue and Transport team seeks out injured animals in the field and transports them to the facility for medical services. Then, volunteers care for orphaned or injured birds by maintaining flight cages, hand-feeding baby birds—some of which require feedings every 15 minutes—and matching orphaned birds with feathered foster parents.
