Bars & Nightlife Deal Featured Food, Restaurants & Dining Music & Events Fara Illich April 22, 2010

Live, from Downtown Phoenix, it’s…comedy, music and martinis. Here’s a quick rundown of events this Saturday night [Editor’s Note: There are no day events listed because you’ll be attending Urban Wine Walk 2010 right??], which includes some welcome freebies for anyone who’s feeling a bit cash-strapped (and honestly, who isn’t?).
The Turf Restaurant and Pub
Saturday’s musical guest: Whitney Steele. This talented songbird is a local favorite who’s performed with the Gin Blossoms. Her recent CD, Any Thoughts on That?, was produced by the drummer for Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, one of my favorite homegrown bands.
Whitney and Aaron Ricker will perform an acoustic set at 9 p.m. at The Turf Restaurant and Pub. If you haven’t been to the Turf, a newcomer to Downtown, check out their complete menu and drink list.
Solstice Saturdays
Now in its second year, this dance party at BarSmith features DJ Element and Benjamin Cutswell spinning hip-hop on the first floor, and DJ Senbad and Pete Salaz playing house music until 3 a.m. No cover charge before 10 p.m.
cheech_and_chongCheech & Chong, Live at the Dodge
Boy, does this make me feel ancient. I remember Cheech & Chong from their heyday in the 70’s.  If you’d like a refresher course, or you want to see this stoner comedy duo for the first time, get tickets for their concert at the Dodge Theatre, this Saturday at 8 pm.
Live Music at the Grand Staircase
Here’s a terrific, absolutely free way to enjoy the last of our spring weather. Head for the Arizona Center, take a seat under the trees, and listen to live music from  local artists. 5 pm to 8 pm, this Saturday.
Prime Rib Special at Coach & Willie’s
Finally, here are those martinis I promised you. For just $15, a killer price, you can dine on a 10 oz. prime rib with garlic mashed potatoes and veggies.  Wine and martini specials are available to top off the feast this Saturday at Coach & Willie’s.
