Discussion arena

I rarely make it to the West Valley but am heading to and I wonder if there is anything worth checking out around the arena.

  1. mostly chains right at the venue with typical pub food, avoid Margaritaville, etc. downtown Glendale has a few good spots like Haus Murphy's, or Arrowhead area for Cucina Tagliana, etc

    1. I LOVE Haus Murphy. Too bad it's a day trip from my part of town.

        Also (violating the sanctity of the Chowhound rules here), the little-known Bead Museum a stone's throw from Haus Murphy is pretty interesting, if you have time and it's still open.

      2. I had a favorable experience at La Piazza Al Forno. It's reasonably priced Italian in downtown Glendale.
