The Local

Phoenix
Drink
The Local, Phoenix, Arizona
Sip Seasonal Cocktails at The Local
Restaurants with seasonal menus are all the rage now, and cocktail menus are getting in on the trend, too. Such is the case at The Local, a Phoenix restaurant that opened in spring of 2014. Summer's cocktail list featured fruit-forward drinks like the Purple Reign, made with blueberries; the autumn list will likely feature shrubs and other trendy craft cocktails. Keep this place in mind, too, when looking for a late-night nosh, as it's open until midnight on Tuesday and Wednesday and until 2am Thursday-Saturday. The restaurant and bar are closed on Sunday and Monday. Photo: Didriks/Flickr

A happy place.... Sailing to Happy Island
Anchored in Clifton bay.We see a little island in front of us. Looks cool from a distance so we go over to check it out. A huge guy with a smile just as big comes out and says, tie your boat here no worries. Welcome! This is Happy Island. The rasta vibe,the beautiful scenery,way cool. Not only did we get to hang out with Janti, who happens to make the best Rum punch, but we also found out he built this island! It started with a dream, as all good things do. With concrete and conch shells he built.Designed and engineered with a creative imagination he turned his dream into his reality,a island.Walking through the layout, pointing out how things work.He catches rain water and filters it, solar power for energy.Inside, soft white sand covers the floor as we walk bare foot. Its dreamy.The past 12 yrs he has been working to get to this point adding to his island everyday.The only way to get here is by boat which makes it that much more special.But what really makes this place special is Janti.He has the most welcoming smile and a warm kind presence, creating a vibe that is contagious.We really enjoyed his company and related to his passion.A passion for a dream far fetched, reached.A goal attained though pure persistence. If you ever have the chance to visit Union Island, its a must stop.Before we left, I gave him a necklace I made in the Bahamas out of seaglass and beads.Instantly he puts it on and gives me a kiss on both cheeks and a great big hug and wishes us a safe journey.

See the Ponte Vecchio at Night
Of course you're going to walk across the famous bridge during the day but take the time at night to see the spectacular reflection of the infamous bridge on the water. Photographers, take some bulb shots with your phones or flashlights for some amazing prints once the trip is over.
