Carly's, Revolver, and Mud Wrestling
Max bought lunch again this week, always a treat! This time
we visited the Downtown Phoenix Art District and dined at a cute little local
place called Carly’s. We were fortunate to arrive and order before the lunch
rush, because, wow was there a rush!
Carly’s was featured on a television program recently, which
is where Max heard about the quaint little bar and eatery. He made a big deal
about the astounding hummus so I made certain to order something related. I can
say with certainty the red pepper hummus on the All Over the Map Wrap is quite
amazing! The wrap also has turkey and greens and comes with a choice of sides.
Max’s choice, the Philly Cheese Pita was equally awesome, I know, I could not
help but snitch a few bites. I also recommend the chips above all other side
choices. These are not your everyday chips, unless you have Taro Chips every day.
They are epic! Seriously. Go for the taro chips alone and it
will be a worthwhile venture. Max raved about the iced tea. I admit to eyeing
the wine list and the addition of Absinthe. If it had not been so early, I
would have enjoyed a glass for sure.
Before we settled in to order, Max managed to nab a
conversation with the owner. Carly was with her two small children having a
quick bite. And why did Max make a point to chat up Miss Carly, well, pirates
of course! Oh, don’t deny you knew it was coming to that.
Carly’s is directly across the street from Revolver Records.
What does a record store have to do with pirates? Well, a few months ago The
DREAD Fleet approached the Fillmore Creative to host the Fourth Annual Pirate
Mud Wrestling event. We thought all was well until they backed out do to a
leasing issue. Desperate for a new location in short notice, Max popped into
Revolver and struck a deal.
So, on July 28th, The DREAD Fleet along with many
of the Arizona Roller Derby leagues, Bellydancers, and local bands invite you
to join in some good dirty fun!
