Arts & Culture Bars & Nightlife Deal Family Food, Restaurants & Dining Music & Events Fara Illich January 29, 2015

Besides a little event called Super Bowl Central (you may have heard of it) there’s so much going on this weekend, we decided to make a list. If free concerts like Walk the Moon, rock climbing walls and cruising the streets of downtown with a cocktail in-hand aren’t your thing — not to worry. From art exhibits to community events, greater downtown is the place to be Jan. 30 through Feb. 1.
DTPHX City Sampler
Get a taste of downtown now through Feb. 1 with the DTPHX City Sampler, a self-guided culinary tour featuring samples of signature food and drink for $5. The program encourages people to walk or bike from location to location, trying new things, discovering local restaurants and exploring the vibrant and walkable downtown community.
