The Five: Best things about downtown Phoenix

I moved to Phoenix in 1999.

I've been witness to numerous attempts made to lure me and an entire community of revelers to spend some of our precious social outings in downtown Phoenix. And for the longest time, no attempt was successful.

But something has happened, something sneaky, perhaps unnoticeable to some: Downtown Phoenix may now be the best place to hang out in the Valley.

This week's The Five counts the reasons why.
