Sights at Barrett Jackson car show

Delicious food was to be found at the collector car show with Pei Wei, La Hacienda from Fairmont Princess, Cold Stone Creamery, Macaroni Grill and more. However, I doubt if they made their burritos with as much preparation as Arizona Inn gives to its Tomatillo Sauce on page 104 of the cookbook.

But food was not a priority with all the memorabilia for sale and vintage cars on the auction block. The wind and rain gave everyone some excitement, especially when the vendor tent was evacuated Thursday night. But the roof held, unlike the Russo Steele auction tent which ended up on the freeway and damaged over $1 million worth of collectable cars. Tastes & Treasures was on display at one of the booths. Out of towners love the book and take it home as a great souvenir and memory of their trip.
