Night Out on the Town

As the baseball's regular season closes and the post-season begins it is important to highlight a favorite place of ours in Spring Training Heaven, Don and Charlie's in Scottsdale, Arizona.

A popular place for baseball fans and celebrities, Don and Charlie's is the center of the baseball restaurant world. Memorabilia line the walls from the plethora of signed baseballs, to photos of many major leaguers with Don and Charlie. And it isn't a picture on the wall at each individual table. The walls are simply their to hang the many  different photos, program covers and baseballs. It's a "Who's Who" of baseball and athletics as fans of the many other sports are known to stop by. On our recent Insight Bowl trip to the Valley of the Sun, a member of the traveling party happened to dine at a table adjacent to Milwaukee Brewer announcer, Bob Uecker.
The food is outstanding, too. The ribs are a specialty, but the sandwiches are great too. And as a parent, we appreciate the attention they give to the littlest of little leaguers as our son was treated to a great meal of chicken fingers, and walked out of the restaurant with a Don and Charlie's hat, a special treat of ownership.

I can tell this is the place to be while in Arizona for Spring Training. Nightly you could be seated next to one of many major leaguers, or a great of the past.
