AAWL: Design for doghouses for charity

Fund raising event for AAWL features designer dog houses created by local artists, and pups up for adoption.

The fifth annual Design for Dogs event. Facings of America hosts this event to benefit AAWL, the largest and oldest no-kill shelter in the state.

The designers are from a variety of professional sectors homebuilders, architects, engineers and even college students who put together these works of art, which are then auctioned off to the highest bidder.

There's more to Design for Dogs than the houses! They will also have a block party style gathering in front of Facings of America's Scottsdale showroom with vendors from many local businesses. Another popular highlight is a puppy kissing booth and our adoptable dogs who are working the crowd!

Cafe Monarch-Most Romantic

Big news for a Valley restaurant, Cafe Monarch has just made Yelp's most Romantic Restaurants in the Country list, and they're ranked at an incredible #2! This place is considered by many to be a culinary destination, and has long been known as being one of the top 25 restaurants in America. And they just did it again, adding more accolades to this family-owned and operated restaurant in Old Town Scottsdale. Yelp releases its annual Top 100 Most Romantic Restaurants list based on the largest number of reviews with the words "romantic," "Valentine's Day" and "date night" and then ranked those spots. They also limited the list to two restaurants per metro area. Cibo in Phoenix came in at #19. If you haven't made your V-day reservations yet, it's already too late for Cafe Monarch. This quaint locale sells out quickly, and for special occasions, sometimes months in advance.
