Singh's Segal Sanctuary Saturday

The Segals don't farm. We shop. We eat out. We order in. We don't even cook, really. Well, one of us cooks and when the Old Wildcat chef and I checked out Singh Farms today, it wasn't even the cookable stuff that was the most impressive. It was the jaw-dropping, Emerald City-likeness of the place. A true sanctuary. The canopy of trees. The clean air. The log cabin market. When you grow up in Phoenix, even back in Old Wildcat's running-around-barefoot-in-the-summer days, there weren't a lot of sanctuaries.  The Phoenix Zoo had its moments. I remember a long-lost place called The Tropical Garden Zoo that had a certain coolness to it. And, not that Old Wildcat knew Abraham Lincoln personally, he told me about a D.C. sanctuary where, back in the day, Honest Abe was just a horseback ride away to a house in the hills, away from the hot, argumentative city where he could stretch out, cool off and breathe a little easier. Just like at Singh Farm.

Top it off with a burrito at the Blind Pig and you've got a not bad kind of Arizona day.

Wow. Chihuly and crowd outdid themselves again. Dinner with the ladies at the amazing new Gertrude's, then a perfect desert stroll through a burst of color. Incredible.
