Ok, ok. Time for me to "nut up" since I've been on this board for a few months.

I'm Stephanie, a 2nd generation Phoenix native. I grew up in Gilbert and married my high school sweetheart, Travis. We still live in Gilbert with our two Boston Terriers. I'm a pharmacist which means I'm a nerd both by nature and profession.

My love/obsession with food comes from my dad. He was in the restaurant business for many years. I broke his heart by becoming a vegetarian in 2009, but I think he's starting to get over it.

My husband and I enjoy going out to eat and trying new places, but you can probably find one of us at FnB at least once a week. We are also pretty nerdy about cocktails and wine. You can see all our food porn, booze exploits and dog pictures on Instagram (Thunes and travisthune).

Welcome again, Thunes!

I hope you don't mind that I split your introduction thread. Don't want it to get lost :-)

A second-generation native, no less! I'm going to have to pick your brain about some things, then. The evolution of the local Arizona/Sonoran/Mex is something that's really interesting to me, and I've been thinking about starting a research project. You know... after the other three dozen projects I've been telling myself I'm going to do :-/

Hope to catch you at a gathering sometime!

Yay, Thunes! We "know" each other on Instagram, but looking forward to meeting you & Travis in person soon! (Anybody who likes food AND Boston Terriers is A-Okay in my book!!) :)

Thanks for the warm welcome! Dom, my dad might be able to help you with your project. He owned a Mexican restaurant in Tempe from '82-85.

Another late hello, but welcome!
My wife is a 2G native from Gilbert too.

Where have you been going for cocktail goodness? Always looking for new places to try out.
