Call me a hipster, but my absolute favorite thing to do in Phoenix is to go to First Friday at Roosevelt Row aka RoRo. I have been going for about 7 years now, and I have watched it grow into what it is today. I love the music, live entertainers, the art, the food, the vendors, the festivals, and everything else in between. When my friends or family come into town, they always request that we go to RoRo for a fun filled evening. They love that the venue is outdoor and when the weather is nice, they want to stay and bask in all that it has to offer. Of course, on some nights, if it’s raining or if it’s too hot outside, we find a great restaurant or cafe to spend the evening. The restaurants in the area have air conditioning as well as heating for the colder nights. If the restaurant has an outdoor space, it will provide portable heaters during the colder months. So, with all these options for outdoor as well as indoor entertainment, this is my family’s favorite place to hang out when they come to town. While I don’t mind the heat in Phoenix, I do love that there are air conditioned spaces where I can sit and enjoy a cold drink. It is beneficial to a city like Phoenix to have venues like First Friday at Roosevelt Row. Not only is it a great space for family-friendly entertainment, but it is also a great space that has both indoor and outdoor venues. And while I prefer to be outside, it’s nice to have the option of these air conditioned bars and restaurants when I do need to cool off from the heat.
