Questions for Phoenix-area locals

Hello SnakePitters,

I visit not to talk so much about playoff baseball, or at least in my case, the lack-of, as much as frankly, for my inquiries, I don't think there's anyone better to ask than those of you who actually live in the Phoenix-surrounding area.

Forgive me in advance if my questions seem redundant, I've searched some fairly general terms, and found no real travel guides, or prior FPs from other would-be Chase Field visitors, so I must unfortunately seek to occupy a FP spot with my own questions.  If anyone knows of any and could point me to some, that would be great as well.

I'm visiting the Phoenix area in a few weeks to catch a few AFL games.  If all goes well, I'll see five games at four of the AFL parks: Phoenix, Salt River, Surprise, Salt River, Mesa.  I'm look forward to it all, but what I'd really like the help from anyone willing to help this traveler out is stuff to do in between/after games, and during the one baseball-free off-day in between.

Most importantly, I'm looking for good/unique/interesting food.  I'm the kind of guy that pretends like he's on Man v. Food, and I've got my own litany of failed food challenges and things I've eaten in various parts of the country while traveling for baseball, if that's any hint at what I'm looking for.  I was mortified to find out that that Heart Attack Grill place closed down, since I really wanted to try that out.

So yeah, if you've got food recommendations, I'd love to hear them.  Activities, or things to see, that would be nice too. I'm staying in Tempe, and I will have a rental car to move about, but all in all, I'm really looking more forward to the relaxation of visiting Phoenix, and watching some leisurely AFL games where sure it's nice to see some Braves prospects on the Surprise Saguaros, but I'd still have little vested interest in the outcomes of the games.

Thanks in advance for any help that may be provided, and I look forward to another bout of interaction with your fine community.
