#1050 - Greasewood Flat, Scottsdale, AZ - 3/24/2010
Greasewood Flat is something else. It's technically in Scottsdale, but not before you drive away from the clusters of night clubs and golf courses, out through the desert to a 120-year-old bunkhouse that used to be the main stagecoach stop between Fort McDowell and Phoenix.
The center is a large open area with rows of picnic tables and lots of fire pits blazing away. The bar is the basics and the food is burgers and chili (don't go hungry -- you'll get that way during the comically long wait for food). But the reason to go is for the (largely authentic) old west setting.
Greasewood also has live music (country of course) and dancing, and is popular with both the biker crowd and families. There's lots of stuff to look at, a great desert sunset view, and the communal arrangement of picnic tables is conducive to striking up conversations.
