Whether you’re an Arizona native or just passing through, you won’t want to miss the fourth annual series of Cartwright’s Sonoran Ranch House History Dinners presented by Sanderson Lincoln beginning May 14, 2014. There are no better story spinners than our own Marshall Trimble, Bob “Boze” Bell, Wyatt Earp, Dolan Ellis, and Lance Polingyouma, and there is no better place to fill your belly while getting an earful than at Cartwright’s, where the accolades are piled higher than the tall tales you’ll hear.
New this year, a true living relative and tribute to his famous namesake, Wyatt Earp has shared nationwide and international performances of one-man plays “Wyatt Earp: A Life on the Frontier” and “The Gentleman Doc Holliday.” He is a member of the Arizona Gunfighters, and will be presenting “A Life on the Frontier” July 23, 2014. Meet the man and not the myth the story didn’t tell!
The evening begins at 5 p.m. with no-host cocktails in the award-winning, newly remodeled Cartwright’s Sonoran Ranch House Ranch Room. Three courses of signature modern ranch cuisine are specially prepared from scratch by top-ranking chef Montez Crane and talented pastry chef Amanda Crick to correspond with the theme of each evening. Delectable dining and desserts are followed by notable and notorious speakers, who will weave their words, sing songs and spin yarns about days of old in Arizona’sSonoran foothills.
