Are you looking for the best selection of Native American jewelry?Maybe you want museum quality "old west" antiques.Or you just want an interesting place to walk around and see things you won't see anywhere else.Ogg's Hogan is the most historical, interesting store in Prescott.It's also my wife's favorite store.Jeff has a long history with Fine Native American jewelry and crafts.He spent 25 years working for the Fred Harvey Company and living at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.He's spent his life collecting, buying, and selling this stuff.His collection of baskets, pottery, and rugs is second only to his collection of jewelry.This isn't just a jewelry store, or another tourist trap downtown.They could take school kids on field trips to his store.I personally have a huge respect for the store and the man behind it.I hope my video does him justice.Please watch.
The Best Pizza In Prescott Is In The Best Liquor Store in Arizona – Park Plaza Liquor and Deli Review
I'm sorry, but Park Plaza Liquor and Deli has the best pizza in town, and that's not the surprising part. The funny thing about Park Plaza Liquor and Deli is that it's primarily a liquor store, and an amazing one at that. From their web site: http://parkplazaliquor.com/ Owner and wine lover Trevor Phillips opened Park Plaza Liquor and Deli in the summer of 2007 with a vision of creating Prescott's and Northern Arizona's best selection of beer, wine and spirits. Along the way Park Plaza has built its single malt scotch selection to over 150, 1000 beers and over 1,000 different wines from around the world. Phoenix magazine called it "the best bottle shop in Arizona". They were "particularly impressed by the creatively curated spirit selection, which included not just interesting global rarities like poblano-based liquor Ancho Reyes Verde (good luck finding that at Total Wine) but super-small-batch Arizona offerings [...]
My first idea for this web site was to produce a new video each week. After making 2 of them, I realized that took way too much time. So, I quit. Total failure is so much easier. Now that we're back, I wanted to start with my first video, The Birth Of Prescott. The fact that I live in Walker, a couple miles from where it all started is just a bonus. Below is the edited script of it, as well as the video. I just watched it again for the first time. Wow, there are a lot of typos and misspellings in the captions. I relied on a few sources for this story, but this PDF is at the core of it. http://www.prescottcorral.org/TT2/PrescottsBirthCertificateWM.pdf Here's another one that's helpful. http://www.prescottcorral.org/TT2/JackSwilling.pdf And now, back to our show. The Birth Of Prescott Joe relaxed on his family's large ranch in [...]
(This article first appeared on Walker Community.) We've got a collection of Arizona Highways magazines, and we subscribe. The latest issue has an article about the "Prescott Lakes Loop", which starts at the courthouse, goes east to Walker road, then south to Lynx Lake. So far, this is my drive home on any typical day. After lunch at the Lynx Lake Cafe, they go south, through Walker, stopping at the Pink Car, before traveling on to Hassyampa Lake, then to Goldwater Lake. I never thought of it as a "loop". It's always just been where I live. This article gave me a new perspective on Walker. Remember to wave to all the new tourists driving through our little patch of the woods. After lunch, we continue down Walker Road. The pavement ends just past Pink Car Hill Road. The colorful story behind the road’s name begins in 1939, when a [...]
(This was written in the Summer of 2014.) Last Spring, I looked up our house in Zillow to see how much it was worth and my head exploded. I was born and raised near Los Angeles, a half mile from the beach. I say “dude” in normal conversation, wear Hawaiian shirts, and have long hair. […]
