On a recent trip to Southern California, my connecting flight in Arizona had mechanical difficulties and I got bumped to another plane, two hours later.
As luck would have it, there is a fabulous bar in the Phoenix Sky Harbor airport – Four Peaks Brewing Company.
So while I whiled away my time, chatting with the bartender and other patrons, I caught up on email, gobbled up some delicious quesadillas and enjoyed Four Peaks’ Oatmeal Stout and their ¡Odelay!
I also chatted with one of the servers, named Katie, who was kind enough to share this floral half-sleeve:
The arrangement includes orchids, lilies, cherry blossoms and daisies. “I love orchids and lilies,” she told me, adding “I have a fresh orchid in my apartment at all times.”
When I spotted the text on her inner arm, she allowed me take a photo of that, as well:
It reads “We accept the love we think we deserve,” which is a quote from Stephen Chbosky's The Perks of Being a Wallflower one of Katie’s favorite books.
She credited her work to Miguel at Body Canvas Tattoo in Phoenix.
I enjoyed my brief respite at Four Peaks and looked forward to stopping back in on my way back to New York. Alas, my return brought me in at the height of the lunch hour. The place was mobbed and I only had a brief layover.
Thanks to Katie and the staff at Four Peaks Brewing Company! Katie, for sharing her awesome tattoos, and Four Peaks, for making a delay in my travels significantly more delicious!
