Do you have news to share with our local Phoenix Chapter?

Every other month, we highlight a different "Featured Local Story" about what is going on within the Norwegian-American and/or Scandinavian community right here in Phoenix. It could be anything relevant for our local audience: from recent chapter events to a Norwegian celebrity moving to Phoenix, or from sharing about your recent travels to Norway to writing about a favorite Scandinavian restaurant in town. It's up to you!

If you have Nordic news you want to share with our Phoenix community, submit your idea here.

Local Scandinavian Restaurant - have you tried it?

If you haven't heard of Beaver Choice Scandinavian Restaurant, you might be surprised to learn that it's right here in Mesa, Arizona! It's been featured on the Arizona PBS show Check Please (you canwatch the episode here), been ranked on of the top cultural restaurants in Phoenix, and has a deliciously eclectic menu of Polish, Canadian, and Scandinavian food. And it was recently featured in the Arizona Republic's "Restaurant Gems" section, which showcases the finest restaurants the Valley has to offer.
