Shopping for fashions? Try Anchor Blue, Eye Candy, Hot Topic, and XI Clothing. This-and-that for home decor, as well as lots of places to wine and dine are all available at Desert Ridge. The site is so huge that it offers valet parking and a shopping shuttle to get shoppers where they want to go. There''s a kids playground called St. Joseph''s Hospital Play Area near Barnes and Noble and a rock-climbing wall near the Rock Bottom Cafe. I suggest making a day of it to really give the mega-marketplace its due. Wear your walking shoes . . . and bring your credit card!
