Weekend Fun East Side / West Side Local Businesses

Dear Folks,

This weekend I "have to" dedicate a lot of my time to the garden. However I have two local businesses to suggest to you for a Saturday visit.


In the Glendale Downtown Historic District you will find many shops and restaurants.

Kimberly Ann's Tea Room (Don't get too excited guys, it is also a great lunch place) is owned by a grandmother (Mae) and her granddaughter Kimberly. Begun as a life-long dream of Mae's, the tea and lunch restaurant is housed in an older home (not antique but homey), with separate rooms with different themes. The food is great and home-cooked, with a nice selection of light to hearty and satisfying.

No website, but give a call:
Kimberly Ann's Tea Room
7153 North 59th Avenue (59th & Myrtle)
Glendale, Arizona
623 934-1106
Hours Mon-Sat 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.


The Red Mountain Multi-Generation Center is the scene of a Market Boutique this Saturday.
7550 East Adobe
Mesa, Arizona
480-209-5360 (info)
9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Get a jump start on holiday shopping (they expect 50-75 vendors).

I am going to the fair to see the offerings and particularly as my friend Alice Nelson, an earring artist, will be there.
Alice specializes in a type of earring called an "Earwrap" and they are just gorgeous. Visit her site to see these lovely pieces of ear "art." Click here.

Have a great weekend and don't forget to work on your fall garden preparation and planting!

P.S. Speaking of gardening don't forget - my reminder service - just $15 a year if you sign up before October 1st. Click here for the payment window. (Just $21 if you sign up after September 30th, still a bargain, but why wait!)
