"A three-inch rain in Phoenix means three inches between drops." ~Local Saying

"I'll take heat rash over frost bite any day."~Ken Travous…I can very much agree with this quote!

Hope that your weekend is fabulous. Mine is being spent relaxing, packing, and doing laundry! At least I am beating the heat inside with the air conditioning. Summer is almost over, but that doesn’t mean that Arizona is getting cooler anytime soon.

  • If you’re looking for live music then check out Scottsdale’s leading live music spot, Martini Ranch. Tonight has a great lineup, DJ Randy at 9 Pm and then Javier Garcia and Rock Lobster at 10:30 PM. This venue also has very well known singers who come throughout the year. For a calendar of events visit, http://www.martiniranchaz.net/calendar.php

  • Beer is always the drink of choice during the summer months. It is perfect for parties, gatherings, and good times with friends. Four Peaks Brewing Company is the local spot of choice with a peach flavored ale, malty sweet brew, and delicious beer battered fries; you can’t go wrong with this location. In the cooler months the patio is a good spot to gather with friends and family.

  • Eldorado pool in South Scottsdale wants you to celebrate tonight with Hawaiian Luau. The event runs from 5 to 8 PM and will have live hula dancers, music, activities, and games. For details, call 480-312-2484.

With summer coming to an end many of us will be cleaning out our closets. Vista del Camino is looking for children’s and teen used clothing for the clothing bank. Sizes from infant to adults are welcomed and can be dropped off from 8 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday at the center located at 7700 E. Roosevelt St. Call Pat Leos at 480-312-0064 for more information.

If you want to enjoy some art then visit the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art in Old Town Scottsdale. They are offering free admission on Fridays from 10 am to 5 pm throughout the rest of July and August. Check out the new summer exhibits and shop for distinctive products in the museum store. Great way to beat the heat!
