The Vig, Uptown
While in Phoenix last October we met my brother for lunch at a restaurant called The Vig, I do believe my dear brother picked this restaurant because he knew I would love these… Of course the fact that the building was a midcentury modern bank that’s recently been remodeled didn’t hurt either. Our table was in the walled in, used-to-be the drive through area, and the old teller window is now a bar. There’s a Bocce ball court too. As well as a killer fireplace… Which I’m sure gets a lot of use, even in Phoenix, as the large windows at the top of the walls all rotate open to let in a cool breeze. But we all want to stare at those metal Agave and Aloe columns a little more don’t we? Did you notice this little guy in the earlier pictures? He took a tumble, don’t worry we tucked him back in. Planted up with the right cold-hardy species these could work in my garden… I just need a metal fabricator with a great eye (and affordable rates).
