A to Z Blogfest, Around the World in 30 Days

Entrance  MMSikes
Still loving her trip to Sedona, the Passenger to Paradise selected Tlaquepaque for "T" in the A to Z Blogfest. After all, she spent a great deal of her time there during eight days in the Sedona community.

Conceived as an artist location, Tlaquepaque 
is known for shopping and lovely upscale art galleries. The Passenger found inspiration in browsing through the galleries and strolling in the sculpture garden outside of one gallery. The lawn there was filled with metal sculptures that twisted and circled in the wind. Throughout the village, beautiful and nostalgic bronze sculptures intrigue the visitor.

Because of her love of sports bars, the Passenger spent many late afternoons dining and watching the Cardinals play on TV at Stakes and Sticks located across the footbridge. The food and service there were outstanding, so it has become one of her favorites.

If you long for the flavor of the Southwest or if you're looking for a great sports bar, Tlaquepaque is the perfect spot.

Cool, Monti. I worked in Tlaquepaque for 4 years while living in Sedona. Good to see pictures of it again. My favorite restaurant in Tlaquepaque is Oak Creek Brewery -- great beers.

Thanks, Marian, Bob, and Maryann, for visiting. I do so love art galleries, especially when they're located conveniently in one place!
