The summer is almost finished, but the fun Downtown is just starting.  The Phoenix Symphony kicks off the season with their famous Pops series this weekend, NFL-VIKINGS-SAINTSbased on the hit musical The Music Man.  Let the Symphony regale you with  “76 Trombones” and music that will have you dancing in your seat. 
The Hard Rock Café and Psyko Steve bring you The Hypo Twins this Friday night.  This local trio best describes their sound as disco party scum rock, and while that may sound like it’s out on the fringe, it sounded fun and funky to me when I heard it, so I may be their newest fan.
NFL officially starts its season Thursday and while we may not have the stadium, we do have the party.  Thursday Coach & Willie’s is hosting a kickoff party for the Vikings/Saints game and on Sunday they open early with a phenomenal hangover menu to recoat your tummy and keep the party going.  The Rose and Crown Pub is hosting a Pigskin Pig-Out complete with corn bag, horseshoes, and the piece de résistance – a roast pig!
This is just a sampling of What’s Happening in Downtown Phoenix. Get the whole kit and kaboodle here.
