(SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.) – On Saturday, October 24th, nearly 12,500 spectators attended the Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships: Horses & Horsepower, taking in all of the sights and sounds of the “world’s most interesting polo event.” This year’s attendance set a new one-day record.

Celebrating its fifth anniversary, the event featured some of the world’s best polo players. Six competitive polo teams traveled to compete in three highly-contested matches. Some of the players included top American player Nic Roldan of the Aspen Valley Polo Club, top ranked player Andres Camacho of the Arizona Polo Club, collegiate player of the year Kareem Rosser, and Wales’ top rated player Pete Webb.

The day’s festivities included more than just polo. Fans also took advantage of The Canine Couture dog fashion show, the Larsen Art Gallery LIVE Art Auction, the World’s “Longest” Catwalk Fashion Show, and a preview of the world famous Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction. It also featured ballroom dancing field side for the first time ever, as well as a Phoenix Symphony quartet performance along with play, and a High Tea Tent by The Phoenician. This year also saw the debut of the Triyar Ivy League Lounge, packed throughout the entire day with over 1,000 people dancing and drinking in a nightclub like atmosphere.

The first match on Saturday began at 11:00 AM with Barrett-Jackson Automobile Auction Company Chairman and CEO Craig Jackson making the first drop in the match between Polo Azteca and Club Polo Cabo, presented by One & Only Palmilla of Los Cabos, Mexico. In that match, Club Polo Cabo beat Polo Azteca, 9-8, and was led by the play of team founder Tony Yahyai.

In the match that followed, local favorite Arizona Polo Club took on rival San Diego Polo Club. Six-time Olympic gold medalist swimmer Amy Van Dyken made the first drop to get the exciting match started. Despite the tremendous play of Andres Camacho in the match’s second half, San Diego Polo Club beat Arizona Polo Club by a score of 9-3. San Diego Polo Club’s first half lead proved too much for Arizona Polo Club to overcome. Alvaro Tadeo led San Diego as he executed both offensively and defensively.

Halloween Candy Pairings

Once the last trick-or-treater has rung the doorbell, the lights of have been turned off and the clock strikes midnight, Halloween will officially be over. The only thing left to do is take stock of the leftover candy or dig through your own trick-or-treater’s bag. Why not enjoy a glass of wine with the loot you (or your child) earned?

According to Jordan Mackay from CHOW, “wine should always be sweeter than the candy or dessert you’re pairing.”

Based on some research, we have complied a list of wine pairings that may be frighteningly good as a last hoorah to Halloween.


Smarties – A common sugary, treat found in buckets and bags, Muscat wine isn’t perfect but a good compliment for the sweet treat.

Starbursts – A fruity favorite, a wine with noble rot like Beringer’s Nightingale will pair nicely.

Jollyranchers – The high acidity in Chenin Blanc off sets the sweetness in Jollyranchers.

Red Licorice – Pinot Noirs already have cherry undertones that make this pairing a no brainer.

Twix– The refreshing sweetness of Ice Wines taste delicious with Twix’s recipe of caramel, cookie and chocolate.

Kit Kat, 3 Musketeers – Kit Kats and 3 Musketeers are lighter, fluffier candy bars and need a medium wine like Merlot.

M&M’s – Everyone’s favorite candy that melts in the mouth, not in the hands, will melt perfectly with Red Zinfandel.

Mounds – For the coconut lovers (like myself), Cabernet Sauvignon’s harsh tannins actually pair well with Mound’s dark chocolate.

Hershey’s Dark chocolate – The bitter dark chocolate in Hershey’s makes a statement with the powerful red Syrah.

Snickers, Reese’s Cup, Candy Corn, Classic Caramel – Port already has a strong, sweet, creamy taste. Pair it with chocolate, caramel and any type of peanut and an amazing, memorable combination ensues.

Tulalip Tribe of Washington Art

October 24th, 2015


Tulalip Tribes logo was so enchanting, I had to buy some acrylic paint and put it to canvas.  Instead of the original fine, smooth finish I piled the acrylic on thick.  Doesn’t come close to the original but I came to a more intimate appreciation of Indigenous Art and its stories told through graceful lines, color  and semitry.

Tulalip Resort Casino is owned and operated by the Tulalip Tribes of Washington.

Great place to drop in for their mile high crab eggs Benny’s on your way to Seattle!
