September’s got a bit of everything. Our monthly list of local food and drinks events includes a pub crawl starting at San Tan Brewing Company, a guide to wine series, and a five-course dinner with whiskey pairings. There is food too, including the grand opening of an ice cream shop in the west Valley and a honey tasting. Or you could spend some time educating yourself about Arizona’s dairy farms, if you’re the cerebral type.

Without further ado…

Peter Pan-Inspired Literary Tea
Friday, September 3 through Sunday September 5

Drink Me! Tea Room

We love a good afternoon tea, especially when there’s a fun theme. Drink Me! Tea Room is celebrating all things Peter Pan with this month’s literary tea. All your tea party dreams are sure to come true (and as J.M. Barrie wrote, “Dreams do come true, if only we wish hard enough”), plus there will be quite a few Neverland surprises. Enjoy savories, sweets, and a pot of tea for $33 a person. Seatings are from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
