Light Rail Playlist

I rode the light rail on opening day, and fell in love with its sleek, silent glide. Since then, I’ve discovered that it’s the perfect place to add your own soundtrack (just remember to bring your earbuds; I’m pretty certain not everyone likes Megadeth). 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. There are Goths, followed by a family, then a high school couple, then a street show featuring roller blades and tutus. Watching the crowds go by is better than watching TV.
