CityScape continues to produce big headlines with marquee events and retail openings on the horizon. Here’s what looms at the mixed-use urban project.
Rock-N-BowlA at Lucky Strike Lanes
lucky_strikeLucky Strike Lanes will host a fundraiser for Team Fox benefiting The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research on Wedneday, June 1. This celebrity bowling tournament, called Rock-N-BowlA, will also showcase the music of local indie bands Incidental, Mike Gooodrick and Replacing Jenny.
“Rock-N-BowlA is a fantastic example of what Team Fox is all about – bringing communities together and having a great time while raising critical awareness and funding for our Foundation’s work to cure Parkinson’s disease,” said Michael J. Fox in a release. “Whether the bowlers roll strikes and spares or gutter balls, the real winners of these frames will be Parkinson’s patients everywhere.”
For more information on Rock-N-BowlA visit Lucky Strike Lanes Phoenix on Facebook.
Oakville Grocery, Copper Blues Eye Memorial Day Weekend Openings
Stand Up Live has been playing to packed audiences since opening last month and the comedy club’s sister venue, Copper Blues, is on schedule for a Memorial Day Weekend opening. The upscale bar and restaurant will feature a menu by Aaron May (Vitamin T), live music, and over 60 beers on tap. If you’ve visited Stand Up Live to see comics like Carlos Mencia, Jo Koy or Rodney Carrington, you’ve no doubt seen the awesome patio area that the two venues share and gotten a peek at Copper Blues’ spectacular layout.
Baseball fans who attended CityScape’s Opening Day Tailgate got their first taste of Oakville Grocery in the form of some delicious grilled sausages and the store should be fully open for business by Memorial Day. The gourmet food and catering company will offer an expanded product line, from basic staple items like milk, cheese, eggs and toilet paper to artisanal olive oils and gourmet spices. Oakville has also sought out the very best locally made Arizona products and will highlight them on their store shelves.
Here are some more CityScape coming attractions…

If you walk by Gold’s Gym Elite you’ll see construction crews busy getting this popular restaurant and bar ready for summer business. Need a job? Tilted Kilt will be holding a casting call to fill all CityScape locations on May 20-22 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. at their corporate headquarters, 664 W. Warner Road in Tempe.
Yogurtini / late June
Nothing helps beat the summer grind quite like frozen yogurt and soon CityScape will boast its own yogurt shop on the corner of 2nd Street and Washington.
Strand Italian / July
The first of two concepts from Jim Carlin (Cajun House, Blue Wasabi), Strand will offer authentic Italian dishes and wines in a fast casual atmosphere. Carlin said he hopes Strand will do a lot of delivery and catering business to Downtown’s office towers.
Silk Sushi / early October
Carlin knows how to do sushi and this modernized Pan Asian restaurant will combine sushi with Asian chop house offerings.
