Airpark bars, grills set to bring on ‘The Season’

The Airpark is in the heart of the action for the January and February activities that have people flocking to Scottsdale.

Starting with the annual Barrett-Jackson Collector Car auction, Jan. 14-22, restaurants that are a short drive away have plans to celebrate the auto-filled week with pre- or post-auction eats.

Before or after perusing and bidding on collectable cars, The Hash Kitchen is the prime brunch spot, bar and event venue near the prized Scottsdale car auctions for every pre-party and after-party, complete with a live DJ Jan. 14-22. The Hash Kitchen’s newest outpost, in the Airpark on Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard and Thompson Peak Parkway, is less than 10 minutes from WestWorld and Salt River Fields.

Both Hash Kitchen locations will be open 7 a.m.-3 p.m. and will offer $2 Ferrari Red mimosas – fresh pomegranate juice infused with champagne – and a $5 special on DIY Bloody Mary cocktails. Guests can customize their beverages at the build-your-own Bloody Mary Bar, with more than 50 over-the-top toppings, such as bleu-cheese stuffed olives, oysters and cheeseburger sliders, and house-infused vodkas and Bloody Mary mixes like habanero and tomatillo.
