Downtown Mishap Turned Adventure!

The plan was to start at 1130, a bar in the Arizona Center that advertised $5 cosmos and $3 wines, go to the show and laugh, and then go to whatever bar looked fun. Click here for more info.

First Friday Fun

It's July 3rd, First Friday night! There are so many different groups, and this is why I love Phoenix's First Friday.

Nowadays, I visit the area a couple of times a month and stay for a spell. The addition of the light rail gives the area a little extra oomph, although I’m still trying to navigate my way through the labyrinth of one-way streets and construction zones.
