Well, we've done it. We moved out of our big suburban house and gotten rid of half of what we own. We're getting ready to move to a great new apartment in Tempe, but until it's done, we're renting a townhouse in Chandler, Arizona. Though it's a city right next to ours, we just never headed this way much.
So, this blog will detail all our adventures in our new adopted city. We'll check out the restaurants, bars, entertainment venues and neighborhoods that may be new to us. Have a suggestion for us? Please comment.
Tonight, after moving what seemed like hundreds of boxes (didn't we get rid of half our stuff?!) we headed to Guedo's Taco Shop for dinner. Guedo's, in downtown Chandler, was the very first restaurant we ate at when we moved to Arizona. It serves really good tacos, tortas and crisps. It's a kitschy kind of place with photos, thank you letters, newspaper clippings and business cards lining the walls. A few good Mexican beers, a couple of tacos and a torta, and we had enough energy to head back to our townhouse and unpack a few more boxes.
But, on the way, we thought we'd stop at Paletas Betty. Parking seems to be at a premium in downtown Chandler, so we had to park in the big lot and walk a block...just to find the shop strangely closed though it was three hours before closing time. We'll have to hit it again soon.
