It's unlikely you'll ever have to wait for a drink or miss a second of game action at Mill Avenue's newest sports bar. That's because the interior of this college-centric drinkery is loaded with dozens of flat-screens and three separate bars that stretch nearly as far as the walls. Occupying the spot formerly known as The Library, Blondie's eschews its predecessor's bookish atmosphere in favor of a sleeker steel-and-glass décor scheme and waitresses dressed in cheerleader gear rather than schoolgirl outfits. While the patronage is a bit more mature (read: businesspeople and middle-aged sports fans) under the spot's new identity, the drink deals are just as cheap. Daily cocktail specials, $2 Natural Lights, and $3 domestic beers are all available from open to close. It means you'll have plenty left over to tip your server, who won't necessarily be a blonde but will almost undoubtedly be a pretty young thing.
Another busy month for the Phoenix restaurant scene. We bid farewell to some excellent Peruvian joint but said hello to a new Ethiopian restaurant.
