Arizona Cocktail Week is set for Feb. 16-22 and during that time drink specials will be abundant throughout Phoenix and the Valley.

The drink specials can be redeemed by wearing a special AZCW wristband, available for $10. Proceeds from the wristbands will benefit Careers through Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP) Arizona. C-CAP is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote and provide career opportunities in the foodservice industry for underserved youth through culinary arts education and employment.

Once the wristband is purchased, imbibers can receive half-priced drinks at participating restaurants and bars, all week long, including local hot spots Windsor, Texaz Grill, Bar Crudo, Central Bistro and Shady’s. The wristband also will give Yelpers access to dining specials and exclusive taxi deals to ensure everyone gets home safely. In addition, wristband wearers can receive RACK alerts (Random Acts of Cocktail Kindness) that will be sent out via social media and e-mail, which will inform imbibers about pop-up events and special giveaways.

Wristbands can be purchased online at and picked up at locations around Arizona. See the website for pick-up locations.
