Arizona 'Boycott' Ineffective Against Arizona's Booming Steakhouse Industry
Are you tired of all the lamestream media hype over the so-called Arizona "boycott"? Well then take your private jet down to Scottsdale and eat some steak. Eating steak is the best way to thwart Rage Against the Machine:
Though August in these parts is considered a dead month for the hospitality industry, there were a decent number of hotel guests at the pool, at the bar, and more than a few insane enough to hit the links.
