As part of our belief that it pays to shop local, each and every Friday this November Bookmans Mesa hosts an annual contest called Freebie Fridays. This series showcases different local businesses every week. It’s also your chance to experience parts of the East Valley that deserve a broader audience. As a community, we find not only is it about local business, but it’s about you too! This week we travel to Downtown Tempe. We have for one lucky winner a $25.00 to La Bocca Urban Pizzeria.

Setting the standard for the two newest La Bocca restaurants with a quality, made in-house menu paired with an outstanding wine selection, and a unique wine by the glass program are just part of what La Bocca brings to it’s the newest location. Not a wine drinker, look into the outstanding selection of whiskeys and our house cocktail list, developed by some of The Valley’s most skilled mixologists.”
