The cook off is two competitions. We had various restaurants competing, our favorite was El Rincon. The second group was the city councils from Sedona, Cottonwoood and Clarkdale. Also competing in this group was Sedona Fire. We really enjoyed the chili produced by Sedona Fire and they received our votes.
Weekly social hour on the cool grass for friendly dogs and their owners.
Yappy Hour is a one hour per week event that takes place on the beautiful green grass of the multi-use field at Posse Grounds Park. Under normal circumstances, City Code and Park Rules require all dogs to be on a leash and to remain off the athletic fields at the park, but during this event we get to bend those rules!
Know before you go:
Owners must pick up after their pets.
If there is an increase in the amount of off-leash users on the athletic fields during non-event times, this event may be canceled.
PLEASE NOTE: the multi-use field is not a dog park. There are gaps in the fence where a pet could potentially squeeze through. There is no division of small dog vs large dog areas. Owners are responsible for the safety and behavior of their dogs.
Help us to make this a fun gathering for your dog!

We had lunch today at the Taste of Marrakesh. It’s a Moroccan inspired restaurant. The food and service were both great. We had the small tacos which come with your choice of meat. I had lamb, elk and bison. Very good and included Harissa and Tzaki sauces. Dishes run $9 on up. Ours were $10 each. They also have kebabs, salads, gyros and more. They serve organic, clean food.

This small restaurant is in the Bell Rock Plaza in the Village of Oak Creek. It’s tucked away next to a barbershop and adjacent to the parking lot of the Bell Rock Inn.
