Weekend Warrior: Scottsdale Edition (Day 2)

From vintage couture to modernist architecture, fresh-pressed juice to fried cauliflower, Scottsdale’s got our name on it.

cleansecleanse: Kaleidoscope Juice, founded by former Vancouverite Alexandra Maw, will deliver right to your hotel—or pop into one of this fast-growing chain's four locations. The delicious Trinity (kale, spinach, parsley, turmeric root, ginger, lemon, celery) drink was the only thing that got us up Camelback Mountain at 7:30 a.m. 7119 E. First Ave., Scottsdale www.kaleidoscopejuice.com
 

shopshop: Vintage by Misty is an interesting mix of designer goods sourced in Europe and Israel and items from the odd estate sale of a Scottsdale socialite. Lots of '60s- and '70s-era maxi dresses and caftans by Oscar de la Renta, an entire rack of '80s bolero jackets and the piece de resistance: a Christian Dior turban (sadly, not for sale). 7056 E. Fifth Ave., Scottsdale, 480-994-1292 www.vintagebymisty.com


dinedine: From farm to fork, FnB bistro and bodega is a fantastic place for an al fresco lunch while shopping the Fifth Ave. strip. Fried cauliflower in fish sauce ($8) and crispy polenta ($6, polenta delivery boy not included) make delicious snacks for two. Like that glass of Arizona rosé you had? Buy a bottle in the bodega to take home. 7125 E. 5th Ave. #31, Scottsdale, 480-284-4777 www.fnbrestaurant.com
 

shop more 2shop more: Pendleton may be from Portland, but this woolen goods-maker’s blankets, with their Native American prints, look right at home in the desert. Find everything from the plaid shirts the Beach Boys wore on their first album cover to reclaimed-wood sunglasses by Shwood in a Pendleton case ($250). 7237 E. 1st Ave., 480-425-1424 www.pendelton-usa.com
 

drinkdrink: You will see Frank Lloyd Wright’s influence (all those triangles!) at the Hotel Valley Ho, designed by one of his architect protégés. Grab a cocktail on the patio of lobby restaurant ZuZu and watch the quirky retro scene unfold. 6850 E. Main St., 480-421-7997 http://cafe-zuzu.com —Sarah Bancroft
