How the Afterglow of Modern Phoenix Saved a Bunny

Modern Phoenix Week was great! There were so many levels such as the homes, history, design, education, but what really made it were the people. With all those people your bound to make connections. There was a Senior singles meetup group that car pooled, the discovery of friends on the tour, and connections made with once strangers who have become friends. The after party featured a food truck called Beet StrEAT serving tasty food, that happened to be vegetarian.Where I learned that several new friends were vegetarian.

Welcome Diner is such a place now with Chef Peyton [caption id="attachment_517" align="alignleft" width="150" caption="Easter menu created by Peyton Curry April, 2011 - Notice lack of meat?

Those in the know will say that we were sitting at the chefs table and we were able to sample a few non menu items and taste components of some dishes like the pickled raisins. YUM! So a handful of wayward folks became fast friends through sharing that common food experience and no Bunny was harmed in this Easter celebration.[caption id="attachment_519" align="alignright" width="300" caption="The group after a great meal at Welcome Diner, Phoenix, Ariz"][/caption]
