The Wrigley Mansion
Last Friday I skipped an outdoor concert because of the wind and cold temperatures here in the Phoenix area. Just as I had curled up on the sofa to watch the evening news, my friend Julie called and asked if I had eaten dinner yet. I hadn't so she suggested that we go somewhere. I have to admit, I didn't expect to go somewhere quite like this. We ended up at the Wrigley Mansion. I've probably had a post about this place years ago but I hadn't been here in many years so it was a treat to go again. I used this photo from a while ago so you can see the building. It was too dark to take one that night.
The Wrigley Mansion sits on top of hill just overlooking the Arizona Biltmore Hotel on one side and the city of Phoenix on the other. It was built between 1929 and 1931 for William Wrigley Jr. It was his "winter cottage". That's some cottage! It is now a fine dining restaurant and event space. This second photo was taken with my iPhone of the view over the city. Tomorrow I'll show you a few pictures from inside.
