My week will start with the Cocktail Carnival on Feb 14th at Hotel Valley Ho. The evening event will feature cocktail classics such as the Appletini, Mind Eraser, Surfer on Acid, White Russian, Sex on the Beach and even the Harvey Wallbanger re-invigorated and re-imagined by some of the top mixologists in the country. Tickets are $25. The venue alone for this event is amazing… you should seriously consider getting a room or taking advantage of specials at the restaurant and spa – it’s Valentine’s Day for crying out loud!
Following the Cocktail Carnival is Cirque Du Soleil’s new show, Varekai. The show will take the stage at US Airways Center February 18th -22nd (I have my tickets for opening night!). Cirque Du Soleil is known for creating shows with a dramatic mix of circus arts and street entertainment. Varekai will feature a captivating forest inhabited by whimsical and enchanted creatures. I cannot wait!! Tickets start at $35.
Clearly, this is a week not to be missed! If you have somebody you love, treat them to some fun & entertainment. If you’re riding solo, call up some friends take advantage of cocktail specials across the valley all week long!! Get the full scoop on Arizona Cocktail Week here.
