One of my favorite spring events is the Kentucky Derby Lawn Party at Bourbon Steak at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess. They really know how to throw a party! Guests are encouraged to dress in their finest Derby attire for a chance to win prizes and Bourbon Steak’s dining room and patio are transformed into a festive scene for party-goers to enjoy lawn games while feasting and imbibing.
Of course, there is always a fantastic Southern-style brunch by Bourbon Steak Executive Chef Sara Garrant. This year’s delicious array included deviled eggs, watermelon and tomato salad, fried oysters, shrimp and grits, fried chicken and biscuits, sliders, potato salad, and Kentucky Hot Browns, and a dessert buffet featuring classic sweets like buttermilk chess pie, berry cobbler, red velvet cupcakes, and pecan pie.
Once again, a fun time was had by all. Thank you to Bourbon Steak for inviting me as a media guest to Derby Day!
Good times from years past:
You’ll want to mark your calendar to reserve your spot for next year’s event. Thank you to the Fairmont Scottsdale for another grand time!
The 2019 official Scottsdale Visitors Guide is out, and I’m happy to have four articles featured in this year’s issue. One of my summer assignments included the tough job of spending staycations at some of Scottsdale’s most luxurious resorts to find out which offer the most indulgent cabana perks. Here are four of my favorites and what you can expect when you pamper yourself with an afternoon spent in a posh poolside cabana: Center Island at The Phoenician Resort, Sunset Beach at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, Jackrabbit Pool at the JW Marriott Camelback Inn, and the Luxury Cabanas at The Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North.
