*~*Tonight in the Divine Lounge, enjoy $3 domestics and $4 well cocktails before a night on the town.*~*

Tonight? Well, after sharing a few drinks on our divine terrace under the stars check out the nightclub Axis/Radius for their "Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy" annual event. Take part in a bull-riding competition, munch on bbq chicken and tacos, and sip on various drink specials all night long!

Today's Random Rant...Recession?!?! More like CRAZY shoppers Saturday. All I saw today was SALES, PEOPLE, and MORE SALES! Stopped by Macys one day sale, Marshalls-always insane, but found a few great deals, and Old Navy for their $2 tank top sale and 50% off everything else-all had long long lines and crowds of shoppers! If the recession is still in progress its not taking any toll on these stores!

Lots of new activities to see and do around here...
  • This weekend the Phoenix Convention Center is hosting Big Boys and Their Toys. It is the 2009 Arizona men's expo. Being held today until 8 PM, and tomorrow from 9 AM - 6 PM. The price ranges from $5 to $12.50. Look at boats, gadgets, and motorcycles while enjoying beverages from the bar and a happy hour from 5 to 8 PM today and 4 to 6 PM tomorrow, in the 18 and older zone.

  • The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus is coming to town next week. The event starts June 24th and is being held through June 28th at the US Airways Center. The times of the shows vary and the price ranges from $13 to $80. If you live in the area you can even take the light rail, which would be the third stop, Street-Washington. The shows are always a lot of fun; watch a variety of animals and human acrobats, eat sugar filled snacks, and enjoy a smell like none other-ha. 
  • The place to be on Thursday, June 25th is in Scottsdale at the Angels and Outlaws nightclub grand opening. Located on Shea in North Scottsdale, it is going to be a no attitude, everyones welcome, and feel comfortable type of bar. Decorated in black and white western pictures, chandeliers, faux-crocodile finish, and a runway-like platform... this bar will quickly become a club of success. 
  • Don't miss the Phoenix Warped Tour 2009 at Cricket Pavilion on Tuesday, June 30th. Some of the more popular bands will be 3OH!3, A Day to Remember, Aiden, Bad Religion, Less Than Jake, Senses Fail, The Devil Wears Prada, and many more! You can buy tickets online at, http://www.livenation.com/edp/eventId/406424?c=wpt-website-warpedtour or I also saw them for sale at Blockbuster Video. Tickets are $31.72. Other good groups coming in town are 311, The Fray with Jacks Mannequin, and the American Idol Tour.
  • The Twilight Tour is coming to Phoenix, AZ on August 14 through the 16th. The event is being held at the Wigwam Resort in Litchfield Park. The three day convention may be a bit of a drive from the Scottsdale area, but for any craze fan it is sure worth it. Learn more about the epic series of books and the feature film! During the convention you will get to meet with guest stars of the film-Twilight's Jasper Hale, Alice Cullen, and more, take part in themed parties, contests, get autographs, photo ops, and enjoy live musical performances all weekend!
