*I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that it's not the answer.  ~Jim Carrey*

I love the weekends. Everyone is always in high spirits and extra happy go lucky. Even working on a Friday or going to school can be exciting because everybody is laid back and ready to have some time off.
The weekends bring a variety of activities to the valley! Each and every weekend, we should experience and try something new! There are always incredible events for everyone, from the homebody to the family man...

  • For the homebody~Saw II, Saw III, and Saw IV marathon at Chandler Cinemas Saturday, March 21st and Sunday March, 22nd. The price is $15 and this is a fund-raiser weekend. The little theatre is looking for support! Along with the movie marathon there will be bands, live shows, and much more! For more information visit, http://www.chandlercinemas.com/news.html
  • For the single guys and gals~ watch a spring training game! Practices are free and open to the public from 9 AM to noon at the Scottsdale Stadium. Catch the San Francisco Giants verse the San Diego Padres Saturday, march 21st at 3:10 PM!
