It’s that time again, when we find an epic party spot and take it over for a full weekend of food crushing and beverage tippling. Welcome to Hotel Thrillist. This year we’re posting up at the W Scottsdale, and we’ll be bringing you updates all weekend on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Friendster.

We already tantalized your taste buds with a spread of drool-worthy shots of the food at our Friday night Phoenix feast. But some of you guys couldn't make it this year, and we wanted to show you just how delicious this bounty was through videos of someone noshing away. As for who that someone should be... well we look like Lord of the Rings goblins, so we did everyone a favor and enlisted the help of someone who is pretty much the exact opposite of that: SI Swimsuit veteran Genevieve Morton. We set all the dishes in front of her and filmed the whole scarf-fest. Watch below to see some choice moments.
