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.
The series begins with multi-talented “Ask the Marshall” columnist, humorist, and Arizona State Historian Marshall Trimble returns to paint a picture of Cave Creek’soriginal Cartwright family in “Rural Arizona: You Can Take the Boy Out of the Country, But You Can’t Take the Country Out of the Boy” Wednesday, July 9, 2014. Pre-entertainment will be provided by Skip Reichert.
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.
