While eating on the run may cause canine madness, eating on a walk may cause deliciousness and knowledge. Put one foot in front of the other with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get admission to the new Taste of Old Town Scottsdale Tour, a foot-fueled foodie excursion with pit stops at the city’s top nibbleries (a $42 value).
Stroll through the paved streets of Old Town Scottsdale for a three-hour narrated journey, stopping at six out of 11 famed dining destinations along the way (depending on the day of the tour): Rusty Spur Saloon, Su Vino Winery, Cowboy Ciao, Sugar Bowl, Frank and Lupe’s, The Mission, The Cider Mill, Malee’s On Main, 5th And Wine, Metro Brasserie, and Outrageous Olive Oil and Vinegars. You’ll get to sample a bit of everything, including Southwest eats (Frank and Lupe’s stuffed sopaipilla), French country cooking (Metro Brasserie's hot fresh beignet), and at the Sugar Bowl, a special delicacy known as the top hat sundae: a cream puff stuffed with vanilla ice cream, topped with hot fudge, and sprinkled with actual top hat. All the while, your guide will pepper you with history, trivia, and tips on the best places to eat, shop, and dig moats.
The non-verbal relationship you’ve achieved with your neighborhood sandwich artist is a sign of food rut. Pull yourself out of the dining doldrums and discover a whole new wealth of eateries, from mom-and-pop establishments to specialty cuisineries. Get this Groupon to give out-of-towners a localized experience (up to 16 people per tour), to hint to your significant other that you deserve something better than warm flavored ice cubes, or to treat your stomach to an afternoon on the town. Tours are available six days a week, but call ahead or email to reserve your spot.
Arizona Food Tours
For all their ubiquity, chain restaurants seldom embody the same character and culture as their independently owned counterparts. That’s where Arizona Food Tours comes in. With their signature A Taste of Old Town Scottsdale tour, the company introduces visitors to the idiosyncrasies and food of the desert burg, from classic western grub to the local wine bars that pour cabernet and red zinfandel for diners and thirsty cacti.
