Would you like to go to the Japanese friendship Garden, but you got stuck in a waiting list that was two miles long?
I will lead up a second group so that we can all enjoy it :)
Please check your RSVPs to ensure that you are only RSVP'd to one of these events as they are at the same time!
Set in a restored 1913 bungalow, Cibo (pronounced "CHEE-boh") has hardwood floors, exposed brick, a stained-glass panel and a fireplace to set the mood while revitalizing the downtown Phoenix area with beautiful salads, antipasto, artisanal pizzas and housemade fresh pasta.

After lunch, we will take a stroll through the Japanese friendship garden.
Japanese Friendship Garden of Phoenix, named Ro Ho En is an authentic 3.5 acre Japanese Stroll Garden with tea garden and tea house. This tranquil and beautiful setting features more than 1,500 tons of hand-picked rock, stone footbridges, lanterns and more than 50 varieties of plants. As you stroll the path, you will enjoy flowing streams, a 12-foot waterfall, and a Koi pond with over 300 colorful Koi fish.
You can feed the Koi for just a dollar or two and it's a treat having a hundred or more Koi come up to you when feeding them, all while ducks try to ninja a few morsels before the fish get to it.
