There’s a new restaurant in town called Sedona Taphouse.  We noticed it while driving home one night, and decided to check it out.  Not only do they have Cactus Lemonade, 200+ beers on tap, award-winning clam chowder, and salted caramel cheesecake.  But, they also offer a “Steak Out For Charity” special every Monday night where you get black angus steak, for only $7 and all proceeds go to a local charity.  A delicious dinner that’s helping to support a local need, that’s also affordable…what could be better than that?!
