notice to replace the injured leading lady. This sparkling song-and-dance extravaganza, one of the longest running American musicals in Broadway history, taps its way onto the ABT stage with hits that include We’re in the Money, Shuffle off to Buffalo, Lullaby of Broadway, and, of course, the title song. Call the Box Office at 623-7768400 or visit www.azbroadwaytheatre.com for more information.

the Pulitzer Prize, IN THE NEXT ROOM (OR THE VIBRATOR PLAY) is a comedy about marriage, intimacy, and electricity. Set in the 1880s at the dawn of the age of electricity and based on the bizarre historical fact that doctors used vibrators to treat ‘hysterical’ women (and some men), the play centers on a doctor and his wife and how his new therapy affects their entire household. A tender and elegant new comedy lit by unexpected sparks from the approaching era of electricity, equality, science and sexuality.

It’s written by Motti Lerner, one of Israel’s foremost playwrights and was translated from the Hebrew by Anthony Berris. Its first English-language translation was produced at Theater Or in North Carolina. It has also been produced at The Jewish Theatre of the South in Atlanta and will be having a run in Dallas in December. While this story deals with the relationship between a Jewish couple, it could just as easily be about any two people who come from different societies - with different beliefs from each other.

Nick@ Night By Nick Connell With swords and stories, piano’s and bass, wrapped around amazing acrobatic feats, this week has been a vibrant expression of the best the valley arts has to offer. Put those gadgets and computers in sleep mode and awaken your spirit to the season of live performance everywhere! JOHN LITHGOW Stories by Heart at Scottsdale Center for the Arts Take two divergently unique stories, place them in a living room just like yours or mine, with one of the best leading actors of our time, and you have a remarkable performance straight from the heart of John Lithgow. John weaved his way into the minds and imagination of a nearly sold out audience-performing the timeless English short story Uncle Fred Flits by P.G. Wodehouse, then turning the table to the American experience with Haircut by Ring Lardner. What a joy to experience the broad range of characters and emotions only John could express. Thanks to mom and dad too - for planting these wildly funny tales in your spirit. THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE Arizona Opera at Phoenix Symphony Hall Pirates and police-kings and paupers - love and loyalty, almost reads like today’s local news... maybe it really is us in disguise? Just ask Gilbert and Sullivan as their hit success The Pirates of Penzance opened the new Arizona Opera season to an elated audience! This swashbuckling tale of deception and intrigue is really a pirate fantasy - and what a wonderful version it was! Led by a gang of great actors and singers who sailed through two acts with so much wind in their sails it was sad to see their boat reach its final destination in perfect harmony! With Brian Anderson as Frederic, Sarah Jane McMahon as Mabel, Steven Condy as General Stanley, Stephanie Foley Davis as Kate and Kurt Olds as the Pirate King, one could not have been treated to a better cast of characters and melodies to be cherished! Argh Mattie! STANLEY CLARKE BAND FEATURING HIROMI at Scottsdale Center There was a “Return to Forever” party last Saturday night in Scottsdale as the Stanley Clarke Band came to town featuring the incredible talents of Hiromi from Japan on piano. Their four set performance was awe-inspiring and reached new heights for jazz music and creative expression. The combination of Stanley on bass, Hiromi on piano, Ruslan Sirota on keyboards and Ronald Bruner Jr. on drums was par excellence! For those who couldn’t make the show, the new album is available at StanleyClarke.com, and to hear an incredible rising star in Hiromi, you can catch her new works at HiromiMusic.com CIRQUE SHANGHAI: BAI XI at Chandler Center for the Arts One of the most diverse audience demographics - with a cross section of every culture and age-celebrated Sunday as the Chandler Center for the Arts presented the breathtaking performance of Cirque Shanghai- Bai Xi. This Chinese acrobatic spectacle(Bai Xi, meaning 100 Amazing Acts) kept the sold out audience on the edge of their seats through daring feats of aerial acrobats, contortion, balancing acts, bicycle tricks, plate spinning, hoop diving and a showcase of strength and beauty. There was never a dull moment as the entertainment wow factor reached a 10 all night! Let’s hope Chandler Center makes a return engagement with Cirque Shanghai for next season. The Kids of all ages loved the “Show of a Hundred Wonders”. BREAK A LEG!

Michael Feinstein: The Sinatra Project Nov. 13, 2010, Saturday @ 8 p.m. Celebrity Theatre, Phoenix Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts will present Michael Feinstein: The Sinatra Project on Saturday, Nov. 13, at 8 p.m. at Celebrity Theatre in Phoenix.

Celebrated as “The Ambassador of the Great American Songbook,” multi-platinum-selling, five-time Grammy-nominated entertainer Michael Feinstein is one of the premier interpreters of American standards. His 150-plus shows a year have included performances at Carnegie Hall and the Hollywood Bowl as well as the White House and Buckingham Palace. Backed by a swing orchestra, Feinstein will share timeless romantic songs from his 2009 album, The Sinatra Project, a tribute to the one-of-akind style of Frank Sinatra, including classics such as Fools Rush In, I’ve Got

a Crush on You and You Go to My Head. Feinstein not only pays homage to Sinatra, but to many of his contemporaries, including Ella Fitzgerald, Nat ‘King’ Cole, Rosemary Clooney and other great singers of the post-war, pre-rock years. Feinstein began to play piano by ear at age 5 and performed throughout his teens in Columbus, Ohio. After moving to Los Angeles at age 20, he was introduced to Ira Gershwin and became his assistant for six years, granting him access to numerous unpublished Gershwin songs, which he has since performed and recorded.

AZWeeklyMagazine.com

Gershwin’s influence provided a solid base upon which Feinstein has evolved into a captivating performer, composer and arranger of his own original music, in addition to becoming an unparalleled interpreter of American popular song. He recently was the subject of the primetime reality/documentary series Michael Feinstein’s American Songbook on PBS. Tickets are available for $55 and $75 through the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts Patron Services Box Office at (480) 994-ARTS (2787), ext. 2, or online at www.ScottsdalePerformingArts.org.

‘Saw 3D’ ~ Actor Tobin Bell keeps us coming back for more!

Reviewers’ Roundup: ‘Inside Job’

There was definitely the sound of joy and pride as actor Tobin Bell read me the wording for the proclamation he received about the ‘Saw’ movies being entered into the Guinness list of world records as the most financially successful horror/thriller genre movie franchise!

Documentary filmmaker’s Charles Ferguson’s “Inside Job” seeks to expose the shocking truth behind the economic crisis of 2008. The global financial meltdown, at a cost of more than $20 trillion, resulted in millions of people losing their savings, jobs and homes. Ferguson interviews major financial insiders, politicians and journalists to trace the rise of a rogue industry and unveil the corrosive relationships that have corrupted politics, regulation and academia. “Inside Job” (PG-13 - 108 minutes), narrated by Matt Damon, is playing exclusively at Harkins Camelview 5. The following quotes were pulled from reviews written by AZ Weekly’s Film! contributors to present readers with a wider perspective about this new release. Read Stan Robinson’s and Joseph J. Airdo’s full reviews exclusively online. Stan Robinson (ScreenScene.org): “A stark naked, naming ‘Names’ global look at the mind-set of the participants, companies, and, governmental agencies world-wide that perpetuated the global meltdown that’ll take years to recover from. The line Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) gives to the young insider in ‘Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps’, captures the overall tone for this documentary, ‘The mother of all evil, is speculation.’ Grade: B Joseph J. Airdo (Examiner.com): “Although it is fun to see many of ‘Inside Job’s’ high-powered subjects lose their footing and look like complete fools - or worse - there is an unfortunate deficiency of interviews with real people who have been affected by the economic crisis. Like it or not, this intelligent subject matter goes over most moviegoers’ heads and demonstrated emotional humanity could have balanced that out.” Grade: C

Interview by Stan Robinson

‘Saw 3D’ is the seventh movie in the franchise since the first in 2004. As we all know, the formula for extraordinary circumstances doesn’t work without the ‘super-nemesis’ and Tobin Bell’s ‘Jigsaw’ sends chills just by his very presence on screen. ~ Tobin shared with me a few insights on acting, the Jigsaw character, and the Saw franchise. From my experience on set there’s basically two types of actors, those who are in ‘character’ all day and those who are ‘in & out’ with the call of ‘Action’ and ‘Cut’ Tobin: “You know Stan, I’m more the kind of guy that once I get into the character, I don’t want to break that! As you know, the day can be very long and it helps me to keep my focus on the character while I’m solidifying the essence of those finer aspects!” ~ The overall character of Jigsaw started on the printed page, what are the finer nuances Tobin Bell brings? Tobin: “Saw has been a unique experience in that I’ve had the opportunity to work with some really great artists, and everyone has contributed in so many different ways, in all of the different departments of a film crew. I’ve worked with multiple directors throughout the Saw series with a lot of conversations as they bring their particular installment to the screen. If I’ve been able to do anything throughout the course of these films, it’s been to help shape dialogue and to try to make things as delicate and as intelligent as I can. I’m always working towards that because I think that makes a great counterbalance to a lot of the mayhem that occurs in a Saw film!”

Robert Rodriguez talks ‘Predators’ on Blu-ray By Joseph J. Airdo Press members from across the globe last week found themselves engulfed in a universe where “Floop’s Flooglies” is the highest-rated television program, Black Box Unlimited Worldwide Industries rests atop the stock market and modified M4A1 carbine assault rifles are used as prosthetic legs. Robert Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios, based in Austin, Texas, used to be the home of George W. Bush’s airport until its airplane hangers were refashioned as sound stages. Now, it is the production site of films like “Spy Kids,” “Sin City,” “The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl” and “Shorts.” Props, costumes and set pieces are

scattered about the studio, acting as souvenirs of their growing list of motion pictures. The crew makes it a point to never throw anything away. Therefore, touring Troublemaker Studios resembles visiting a vast amusement park in which a “Machete’s” chop shop sign hangs over one room and the oversized helicopter from “Planet Terror” is parked outside. Rodriguez and his crew Oct. 18 took a brief break from shooting “Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World” in order to hold a media event for the Blu-ray launch of “Predators.” The movie, which hit shelves Tuesday, stars Adrien Brody as a mercenary who, along with a group of coldblooded killers, wakes up in a dense jungle on a mysterious planet and is forced to flee from a new breed of intergalactic hunters. In addition to Brody, “Predators” also stars Alice Braga, Topher Grace, Laurence Fishburne and Walton Goggins. There was also a role in the screenplay reserved for a “Danny Trejo type.” Rodriguez recalls receiving a phone call from Trejo, the star of “Machete,” inquiring about the part. “He said, ‘Hey,’” Rodriguez says with his best Trejo imitation, “‘I hear in the ‘Predators’ script there’s this ‘Danny Trejo type.’ I look just like Danny Trejo. You should hire me.’” And he eventually did. However, Rodriguez’s favorite memory from the production is seeing Predators walk around Troublemaker Studios, some of who had cigarettes hanging out of their mouths, while the sun was setting in the distance. The filmmaker already has some ideas for a sequel, using some of the larger elements that he purposely avoided including in the current film. “I probably want to include some of these ideas, a more expanded universe,” Rodriguez says. “If we stayed on that planet, it might be for a little while. There’s a lot to explore, which is nice about them not making it their home planet. You can go so many places. You can do a lot of things. There’s several ideas and directions we can go, depending on how much

they’re willing to put into it.” “Predators” (R – 107 minutes) is now available on Blu-ray at retail stores and rental outlets throughout the Valley. The 2-disc package with Digital Copy includes a selection of special features that includes motion comic prequels, three behind-thescenes featurettes and nine deleted and extended scenes.

Screenwriter Michael Arndt talks ‘Toy Story 3’ on DVD By Joseph J. Airdo

Michael Arndt, screenwriter of this summer’s “Toy Story 3” - which is now available on DVD at retail stores and rental outlets across the Valley felt a great deal of pressure in trying to write to the “Pixar standard” and live up to the legacy of the franchise’s first two installments. “It was basically more pressure than I’ve ever felt - or that I imagine I’ll ever feel - in my entire writing life,” Arndt says. “There were never any moments of panic or despair but I really, really, really didn’t want to let anyone down, so the pressure was pretty antagonizing for the entire four years of making the movie.” In “Toy Story 3,” Woody, Buzz and the rest of their plaything pals are back but their owner Andy is all grown up and preparing to depart for college. Therefore, the toys find themselves being donated to a daycare center where they are used and abused by age-inappropriate youngsters and a strawberry-scented teddy bear. Arndt, who joined Pixar Animation Studios in 2005 - two years prior to winning an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for his first film “Little Miss Sunshine” - says that the screenwriting process for “Toy Story 3” took about three years. Once the script was finished, it took one more year of production before the final product was completed.

AZWeeklyMagazine.com

“I never felt shut out of the creative process of making the film - which is something that can often happen to writers on a live-action movie,” says Arndt, noting that the screenplay went through dozens of rough drafts. “But it was a deeply collaborative effort, with [director] Lee Unkrich guiding the process every step of the way, [heads of story] John Lasseter and Andrew Stanton keeping us on course and a whole team of story artists offering up jokes and ideas.”

FILM! SECTION

~ Do you find the directors relying on you for those finer points since you’ve been the ‘anchor’ for seven films now? Tobin: “If you’ve played the guy a lot and it’s worked, then naturally directors, costumers, or depending on the department they’re coming from will say; What do you think about this or that, or what’s your orientation to what he would do or be wearing, what is his condition or state of mind. I think the more you play a guy, the more they want to know what you’re going to do that’s going to keep him in harmony with what’s been set up for him. One never wants to do anything that’s going to break that ‘sculpture of the character’ that’s been done so far, or make anything that’s been done so far become illogical in any way, so you always want to try to connect when you’re doing a series of films that has a continuous character. You always want to try to grow the character, and connect the dots, connect the moments from the previous films!”

Arndt adds that one of the biggest challenges the “Toy Story 3” team faced was determining how Woody would change over the course of the story. The franchise’s first installment saw the character learning to share the spotlight while the second forced him to accept his own mortality. It was finally figured out that the third installment should tackle Woody’s belief that love is dependent on physical presence. “It is only at the very end, when he witnesses Andy and his mom saying goodbye, that Woody realizes you can love someone and still let them go, and that sometimes letting someone go can be the most loving thing a person can do,” says Arndt, noting that it is a universal experience. “We all go through our lives getting to know people - childhood friends, high school sweethearts, college professors, work colleagues - that we can feel intensely connected to for part of our lives, but whom we have to let go as we move through life. “Recognizing this and learning to accept it is a fairly mature sentiment for Woody, and one that - to me, at least - nicely completes the arc of his character across all three movies.” Read more of Joseph J.

‘Downsized’ follows a family from

living large to working poor

In some ways, We TV’s new reality series, “Downsized,” premiering on Saturday, Nov. 6, is a cautionary tale for the modern middle class. Once upon a time, the blended Bruce-Rumsey family of Phoenix, Ariz., was living the good life. Dad Todd Bruce was a general contractor with a growing and thriving business; wife Laura and their seven children (two of his, five of hers) were shopping, eating out, cheerleading and playing sports. Then the bottom fell out of Bruce’s business. More quickly than the family probably envisioned possible, the comfortable lifestyle gave way to foreclosure, bankruptcy and the necessity of going on such public assistance programs as food stamps. The Bruce-Rumsey family

“TOY STORY 3”

“THE FUGITIVE: THE FOURTH AND FINAL SEASON, VOLUME ONE”

There’s still plenty of life left in Buzz Lightyear and cowboy Woody, as Tim Allen and Tom Hanks reprise their voice roles in this delightful and quite affecting sequel to the two earlier Disney-Pixar box-office smashes. With their owner, Andy, heading off to college, most of his toys – except for Woody, who goes with him – get a new destination, a day care center where they aren’t treated too well. That gives them even more fuel for their planned getaway. Michael Keaton gives voice to Ken, longtime boyfriend of Barbie. DVD extras: “making-of” documentaries; “Day & Night” short subject. ›››› (G) (Also on Blu-ray)

“THE WAY WE GET BY”

It will take getting to the next DVD release to see how the flight of murder-accused doctor Richard Kimble (David Janssen) ultimately was resolved – in what stands as one of the most-watched episodes in television history – but this collection offers the start of the path that led to the hit ABC show’s outcome in the mid-1960s. One of the stories gives Kimble a big lead in locating the one-armed man (Bill Raisch) who is the suspect’s best chance of clearing his name. Barry Morse plays ever-in-pursuit police lieutenant Gerard. ››› (Not rated: AS, V) Featured last year and again more recently on the PBS series “POV,” this deeply moving documentary profiles several Maine senior citizens who greet American soldiers returning from duty. One of the greeters – Joan Gaudet – is the mother of the film’s writer-director, Aron Gaudet. Without making any overt judgments about America’s military involvement, those who provide the warm welcomes often evoke strong emotions from those they embrace when the troops step back onto U.S. soil. ›››› (Not rated: P) “CENTURION”

“THE PACIFIC” Properly rewarded this year on the award circuit, this Emmy-honored HBO miniseries – boasting Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg, repeating their “Band of Brothers” teamwork, among its producers – focuses on three U.S. Marines (played by James Badge Dale, Joe Mazzello and Jon Seda) and their experiences during World War II. The arc of the saga traces their growth from novice soldiers first entering combat to their return home as veterans who have participated in many of the horrors of war.

Billy Gardell first took the stage on a dare. He cracked up co-workers at a warehouse, and they bet him that he didn’t have the nerve to do his shtick at an open mic. Gardell had to go on – he didn’t have enough money to cover the bet. He was a senior in high school – and not old enough to drink – on Dec. 28, 1987, when he first told jokes on an Orlando, Fla., club’s stage. He’s worked steadily since, and today he’s Mike on CBS’ Monday comedy “Mike & Molly.” “I am very, very humbled,” Gardell says, taking a break from playing Harry Potter Legos with his son, a second-grader. “Where I am with this show is pretty overwhelming. At the bottom of the day, it’s a love story. These two people happen to not be perfect. They have a weight problem. Everyone has a problem, whether gambling, eating, hoarding. Love comes in all shapes and sizes, and I think we have a cool thing, like a ‘Honeymooners’ type of thing. It has a lot of heart.” Though he’s been a regular on several series and acted in movies, Gardell is still drawn to the night life of stand-up comedians. After his first turn at the open mic 23 years ago, he had to confess to the owners that he was underage. “Once they knew I could be counted on, they gave me a job seating people and cleaning the bathrooms and driving the comedians to the airport,” he says. Over the years he came to know George Carlin, Sam Kinison and Dennis Miller. What did he riff on that first night? “I was 17, so I’m sure it was nonsense,” Gardell says. “My father used to say no one should speak until they are 30.”

Collecting movie memorabilia is not for everybody. Unless you’ve got a million dollars to spare for an authentic “Frankenstein” movie poster or even a relatively paltry $60,000 for a Rosebud sled from “Citizen Kane,” you are probably better off sitting back and watching others pay big money for pop-culture relics. The new series “Hollywood Treasure,” which airs Wednesdays on Syfy, allows viewers to do just that while still experiencing the thrill that comes from chasing down such elusive items – vicariously, anyway. “It’s about hunting for the artifacts, where they come from, the stories behind them, the authentication process,” says Joe Maddalena, the show’s star, who owns the Profiles in History auction house. “It’s pretty extensive.” But be prepared: The memorabilia business is not without its perils, which range from wild-goose chases to forgeries and even fires. Take, for instance, Rosebud, the iconic sled that was actually several simple store-bought sleds purchased for “Citizen Kane,” which have become extremely valuable based on their use in one of the greatest films ever made.

The Festival at The Farm celebrates success of Arizona’s wineries There was a time when Arizona’s surging wine industry was a well kept secret. No more. National acclaim continues to flow as Arizona wines get nod after nod of acceptance. The Arizona Wine Growers Association will celebrate with the first-ever “Arizona Wine Week ,” which begins Saturday, Oct. 30, 2010. The week ends on Saturday, Nov. 6, with The Festival at The Farm, the association’s signature event. Set among the pecan groves of Phoenix’s intimate The Farm at South Mountain in Phoenix, the festival offers wine lovers an opportunity to sample the best from across the state, all in one place. More than 20 local wineries are expected to attend, representing growing regions from northern Arizona’s Verde Valley, southern Arizona’s Sonoita and Elgin, and southeastern Arizona’s Willcox. The festival will include: • The opportunity to taste wines from more than 20 Arizona wineries. • A picnic lunch from Santa Barbara

• • •

Catering, included in the ticket price. There also will be delectable bites from several local businesses. A high-energy live auction for packages that include access to top Arizona chefs and winemakers. Live music. Seminars with limited attendance that will offer a chance for wine lovers to be the judge and pick their favorite local wine, and take a closer look back at the “Judgment of Arizona Wines” event where Arizona wines beat notable competition from around the world.

Now available at

Caprese How you say fresh & delicious in Italian.

The festival is preceded by the Celebration of the Arizona Growers Reception on Friday, Nov. 5, 2010. Guests can mingle and meet with winemakers from across the state, including Arizona Grower’s Cup and Winemaker’s Medal award winners. There will also be an opportunity to sample top scoring wines from the 2010 competition. The event takes place from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Quiessence Restaurant at The Farm at South Mountain.

control of, Trappist Monks. Pretty simple. Except that many breweries are associated with or licensed by a monastery that may or may not have formerly produced beer. These beers are not considered Trappist beers, but rather Abbey beers. The Trappist Order of monks started in the town of La Trappe in France by a reformed member of a noble family who had been known for his worldly ways. Granted permission by the king to retire to Abbaye de la Trappe he initiated massive changes creating an order that believed in strict observance which required austerity Lately I have been hearing some confusion regarding Trappist Breweries so today we will seek to clear that up. There are only seven Trappist Breweries in the world, six of which are in Belgium and the other in The Netherlands. Anything else is, at best, an Abbey Ale, or, more likely a contract brewed craft beer purporting to be authentic. That should resolve any confusion on the matter, so I guess I will see you next week in this same spot. What’s that? You want more information? I don’t know how much you paid for this issue of AZ Weekly, but I can assure you that you will get your

money’s worth in this column (don’t worry, I know it’s a free paper…that’s the joke and why should I have to explain it?). Anyway, there are worse things I could be doing on a beautiful October day in Arizona than writing about beer. Of course there are better things as well, like sitting outside drinking beer. Anyway, if you want to learn more about Trappist Beers, read on. If you don’t want to know more, then don’t. I get paid the same whether you read this or not, which sadly is a percentage of the selling price (I refuse to explain that joke). Moving on, a Trappist Beer is one brewed by, or under the immediate

of diet, penitential exercises and, with the exception of daily chanting, absolute silence. Granted land by the local nobility, the monks grew barley and wheat as a part of their ascetic lifestyle. To sustain them during periods of fasting, they also brewed beer – liquid bread inspired by faith, patience and a desire to reach spiritual perfection. These were the first Trappists. Driven out of France in the 1700s during the French Revolution, the Trappists fled mostly to Belgium and The Netherlands where the re-established their abbeys and

began brewing beer again. Beer was produced only in sufficient quantities to provide sustenance to the monks with a portion being sold to the public to support the monastery financially. The beer became well known for its small, artisanal production qualities and was called the champagne of Belgium. In many ways these Trappist beers were the forerunners of the American craft beer. The breweries were small, independent and brewed in traditional methods…although in reality they created the traditional methods…with nothing being added unless it enhanced the product. In the 1990s commercial beer companies began to notice the popularity of the Trappist ales and attempted to associate themselves with the quality of these beers. The Trappist brewing community, in order to protect their reputations, established the International Trappist Association in 1997. They created a logo and strict criteria for acceptance in to the association and the right to use the name and symbol. Of the original eight Trappist Breweries from 1997 seven still survive. Only Mariawald in Germany no longer produces beer. Beers brewed in the Trappist tradition, but not meeting the criteria for inclusion in the association have come to be known as Abbey beers. Even beers brewed within monastery walls may not be called Trappist if they are not produced under the direct control of the monks with an economic purpose of charitable assistance, not profit. Of the seven Trappist breweries operating, two are fairly well known, three are moderately well known and two are somewhat smaller and more mysterious. Not surprisingly this has to do with availability of the product as well as the desire of the monks to become more popular. The most famous of these beers is Chimay. The monks of Abbaye

What’s Hoppening The Lost Abbey, known for their great beers and creative labels, has found themselves under attack by Pagan and Wiccan communities. Turns out that recently a very famous member of the Wiccan Community “found” Lost Abbey’s Witch’s Wit in a store. She was immediately appalled by the use of 16th Century images featuring a Witch being burned at the stake. The deluge of e-mailers didn’t seem to bother spending time researching branding nor the positioning of Lost Abbey beers. “The Lost Abbey has been about original artwork, original beers and original back label stories tying them together. I know this because it’s been my job to develop the beer, commission the original

artwork and write the back story for the label”, states Tomme Arthur at The Lost Abbey. He is very proud of their labels. They are cohesive and constantly work at pushing the boundaries of beer as art. But now, The New York Times has published a story detailing the situation between Lost Abbey and the Pagan and Wiccan communities. To educate yourself on this issue, read The New York Times article as well as the notes published about the Witch’s Wit label on their website, www. lostabbey.com. According to the brewery, at this time, they are taking the issue of changing the name “under advisement”. So.... the next time you’re sharing a pint with your favorite Wiccan... may I suggest a Self Righteous!

BEER! SECTION What Can I Get You? By Maureen Basenberg, Founder AZ Girls’ Pint Out One question I’m asked frequently is how best to introduce someone to craft beer who hasn’t done much exploring.  It can be tough to figure out where to start, given the wide range of craft beer available. One tip is to consider what foods and flavors the person enjoys. Ask them to explore what they enjoy most about savory and sweet.  For example, if he/she enjoys slightly spicy food, a beer with Saaz Hops might appeal such as Oskar Blues Mama’s Lil’ Yella Pils. If he/ she likes a biscuit style cookie, a Nut Brown Ale like Avery’s Ellie’s Brown Ale could be a match.

Check out where to enjoy and purchase these local brands on “Beer Spy” at www.worldclassbeverages.com AZWeeklyMagazine.com

A great way to explore is to ask your local brew pub for a sample or two of what they have on draft. Often times you can learn something about a style of beer you thought you already knew - and you will be supporting a local enterprise. That’s why craft beer is wonderful - five different breweries can make the same style of beer, but each brewer makes it a bit differently. It’s a magical world of endless possibilities. Cheers!

BEER! SECTION 28

...continued from page 22.

Notre-Dame de Scourmont in Chimay Belgium have chosen a more aggressive approach to funding their order and their red, white and blue labels are perhaps the most well known of the Trappist beers. Produced as a dubbel, tripel and quad respectively, these beers are a fine example of Trappist brewing. The Blue or Grand Reserve is particularly suitable for aging and will evolve and improve in flavor for up to 20 years. The other well known Trappist beer is Orval. This is the most unique of the Trappists for a couple of reasons. First, the produce only one beer; and second is that this one beer undergoes a secondary fermentation that uses 10 different strains of yeast including Brettanomyces, a wild yeast that provides a slightly sour undertone to the beer. It is also dry-hopped which serves to distinguish it further from its Trappist bretheren. The next most known Trappist beers are those from Westmalle. Producing only a dubbel and a tripel, Westmalle is considered the most influential of all the Trappist breweries. These Trappist beers speak of complexity, blending malts from Belgium, Germany and France, in conjunction with brewing water that is high in mineral spirits for a uniquely-defined style of beer. Their yeast is thought to be one of the finest and is in demand from brewers across the world that want to produce Trappist influenced beers. Rochefort is known as the most beautiful of the Trappist breweries, the beers produced at Rochefort are all dark, and known by the concentration of their corresponding worts of 6, 8 or 10. They are blended of malts and dark candy sugar, touched with

German Hallertauer and Styrian Goldings Hops and undergo a warm and fast fermentation. Next is La Trappe, the only non-Belgian of the Trappist breweries. Located in The Netherlands, they are also the brewery most like secular breweries in that they produce the most different beers. The five regular production beers are a Blonde, Dubbel, Tripel, Quadrupel and Wit. They also produce occasional seasonal releases and their Bockbier is the only lager produced by a Trappist brewery. Achel is the newcomer of the Trappist breweries, the only one that was not producing beer prior to World War I. They make a Blonde and a Brune, each in two different strengths. They have rapidly become known for their dedication to the art of brewing and their beers are of outstanding quality.

(no more than two cases) is loaded in to the trunk. Purchasers are also required to acknowledge that the beer is for personal consumption and is not for re-sale. The only other spot to purchase the beer in accordance with the monk’s wishes is at In Da Vrede, a small café across from the monastery which is perhaps the best place in the world to sit and consume this spectacular beer. Beer does show up in the market from time to time, but all of it is re-sale against the monks’ wishes which accounts for the high price. We could write thousands of words about the Trappist beers and may do so at a later date. In the meantime, remember if its not one of the seven

I have left for last Sint Sixtusabdij van Westvleteren. This monastery is without question the most mysterious and least understood of all the Trappist beer producing monasteries. The Westvleteren 12 is one of the holy grails of beer drinking. It is difficult to come by and, when available, will sell for as much as $30 for an 11.2 oz bottle. The scarcity of this product is partially responsible for it regularly appearing on lists as the number one beer in the world. Why is it so scarce? The brothers at the abbey produce no more than they absolutely need to maintain the abbey and reject all commercial attempts to sell their beer. In order to purchase this beer, one must telephone the abbey several weeks in advance to secure an appointment to buy whichever of the three production beers will be available on that particular day. On the scheduled day, the purchaser arrives to the monastery, which is extremely difficult to get to and requires a very good map, pulls up to the gate, exchanges money with the brother in charge and the beer

beers listed here, it is not a Trappist beer. The other thing to remember is that these seven breweries produce some of the finest beer in the world, all of which is worth seeking out and trying. In fact, what a good idea, I may have a La Trappe Quad tucked away in my cellar, perhaps I should go dig it out.

FULL NAME: Rashard Jamal Mendenhall BIRTHPLACE: Skokie, Ill. BIRTH DATE: June 19, 1987 HEIGHT: 5 feet 10 inches

AZWeeklyMagazine.com

The Pittsburgh Steelers knew they would have to play the first four games this season without their best player, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. What they didn’t know was the player who would end up filling the QB’s shoes wasn’t his replacement but a third-year running back out of Illinois. Rashard Mendenhall took the leadership reins during Roethlisberger’s league-imposed suspension and ran with it. He carried the Steelers’ offense, rushing for 411 yards and four touchdowns as Pittsburgh finished the season’s first quarter 3-1. The 23-year-old averaged 4.6 yards per carry and had two 100-yard rushing games – 143 against Tampa Bay in Week 3 and a 120-yard effort in the season opener against Atlanta, highlighted by his game-winning 50yard scamper in overtime. And Mendenhall accomplished all this even though opposing defenses knew exactly what Pittsburgh’s game plan was going to be in Roethlisberger’s absence – give the ball to Mendenhall. To illustrate: The Steelers’ passing attack during their 3-1 start was ranked last in the NFL with an average of 136 yards per game.

Ghost Hunters

After learning that Emma (Jayma Mays) loves “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” Will (Matthew Morrison) has the glee club perform the stage version for the school’s annual musical. This would be the same Will who, just a few weeks ago, found Britney Spears too controversial for the club. Say what you will about this show’s writers; they certainly don’t feel overly constrained by logic. Jane Lynch also stars in the new episode “The Rocky Horror Glee Show.”

After checking out the reportedly haunted Ulster County Jail in Kingston, N.Y., the Ghost Hunters are off to Atlanta to investigate the Antebellum Plantation in Stone Mountain Park, a living museum made up of 18th and 19th century buildings from all over Georgia. Here’s the hitch: Workers claim spirits of those who once dwelled in these buildings came along for the ride in the new episode “The Oldest House in Georgia.’’

Jersey Shore has taken over America to the extent that even Halloween stores now carry Jersey Shore costumes which include some drawn on abs. Upon seeing this I did not know whether to laugh or ask “WHY?!” Then again I suppose there are times when we all want to escape reality and just “Gym,Tan and Laundry” (I guess?). This year that need has moved over to old town Scottsdale and has become a block party before the traditional block party of Ghostball. Pauly D will be your resident DJ, so expect some excellent fist pumping tracks. And of course there are the contests: Best Snook-Alike, Situation Ab contest and best Group Cast contest- all for cash prizes of course. The party will go on in-between Axis Radius and Suede, so if you are attending, please do yourself a favor and get a spray tan, otherwise Pauly D may be offended. For tickets, visit www.axis-radius.com or www.suedeaz.com

Downtown Phx Zombie Walk Oct 29th

For all of you obsessed with the world of the undead, your time has come and you can now walk among them - well sort of. Dressed in your zombie best, get to Heritage Square at 6pm and parade around downtown phoenix lead by the official AZ ghostbusters, ironic? You will circle back and hit the All Hallows Eve Festival! This FREE event will have everything from pumkin carving to palm readers, silent horror films, live music, carnival delights and games. You can even take a candle-lit tour of the Rosson House. Built in 1895, it is believed to be haunted by the former caretaker who was shot just outside the house in the early 1980s. Hear footsteps anyone? If ghost hunting is not your style, head over to the Rose&Crown Pub for a costume party and a tasty beer garden 7:30-12am. Live bands will play till 9pm and admission is FREE! www.downtownphoenix.com

Haunted Hotel Ball at the Valley Ho Oct 30th The best part about at Hotel Ball at a Hotel is the ability to drink like there is no tomorrow and then just head upstairsthey must have had this in mind when they dropped the Fri & Sat rates to $199. the Dj’s will start the party at 9pm as you sip on speciality drinks and watch the madness unravel in front of you. A costume contest gives you the chance to win $1,000 CASH and other prizes. This tells me that there will be much to look at as you party through the 2 ballrooms and courtyard. Call 480.248.2000. Cash bar.

Caffe Boa Seance Dinner Oct 30th

If you don’t feel like being surrounded by a mix of drunk pirates, fairies and super heros this year, then you may want to go to something a bit more intimate...and spooky. Cafe Boa, the Euro influenced Bistro and Wine bar invites you to first enjoy a Fall inspired 3-course dinner created by Chef Payton Curry to give you the strength for what’s in store next. Paranormal expert Debe Branning of MVD GhostChasers is going to lead you on an exploration of the historic Casa Loma building Cafe Boa resides in. As you learn the murderous history, be prepared to summon any spirits with an Electric Voice Phenomenon recording. Creeped out yet? I am. $39 gets you dinner and a ghost hunt, $15 is ghost hunt only. 480.968.9112

THE BEST TEQUILA BARS! Sponsored by Cruz Tequila

TEQUILA… TRUE OR FALSE? ●●

Forty nine percent of today’s tequila drinkers are women. True. And that percentage is growing every year. 

●●

There is a worm at the bottom of every tequila bottle. False.  Actually, it would be against Mexican law to put worms in tequila bottles.

●●

Tequila comes from Mexico. Half-right. There cannot be tequila where there are no agaves. Therefore, tequila can only come from the State of Jalisco – not just anywhere.

●●

Tequila is regulated by the Mexican Government? True. The Mexican Government considers the spirit Tequila to be its national property.

album, but says that rhythms will be one of the focal points. The band is looking forward to playing in Mesa on Halloween and being able to indulge in the Halloween spirit with their fans. Their set will include a good variety of material from their 12-album career, and it’s Halloween – you never know what might happen.

QUEENSRYCHE, GREAT WHITE AND KEEL October 31st at Buffalo Wild Wings Queensryche, Great White and KEEL will be performing at Buffalo Wild Wings, located at 1130 N. Grove Ave. in Mesa on Sunday October 31st. The show start at 4:30pm and goes on until around 10pm. All three bands are veterans in the Rock and Roll world and are still rocking strong!

Queensrÿche recently returned from Iraq where they spent two weeks entertaining the troops and are now in the studio working on their next album, due out next Spring. Frontman Geoff Tate explained how the band appreciates how powerful the art of storytelling is and whether the story is being told in one song or an entire concept album, they enjoy experimenting with every album. Their latest, American Soldier is a concept album that started with stories from Geoff’s father and eventually included two years’ worth of stories from over 300 soldiers. Geoff doesn’t want to give away too many details of the new October 28th, 2010 - November 3rd, 2010

Great White guitarist Michael Lardie attributes the band’s longevity to a love of playing music and the fans that appreciate the “Zen” of Great White. The natural evolution of the band and their music has kept them solid in the blues-rock roots but Michael enjoys trying new things as well; in case you haven’t noticed, he plays a Mandolin on their latest album Rising. KEEL released Streets of Rock and Roll in January 2010 after the excitement and energy of a reunion in 2009 reignited the creative juices and spawned new material. The flow was natural and the end result is probably their best material to date. For the band, touring with Great White and Queensryche feels more like a family reunion and they’re looking forward to seeing their fans in Phoenix again. Ron Keel extended a personal “thank you” to the fans in Phoenix for welcoming them “back home” and helping to keep the Rock and Roll dream alive. Ron has a page on Facebook and likes to keep in touch with fans. He can be “friended” at facebook.com/ronkeel.

Media Link: Huey Lewis also appears in “Back to the Future,” which airs Tuesday, Nov. 2, on ABC Family.

Ever since the first plastic guitar strolled onto the gaming scene, the musically inclined have managed to let the world know, much to the disdain of virtual rockers, that big colored buttons will never replace the real thing. Even with the amount of finger twisting needed to play “Green Grass and High Tides” on the highest of difficulties, pseudomusicians still couldn’t catch a break. Well, after years of insults, complaining and general unfair comparisons, Harmonix has managed to bring a bit of realism to the video game music world with its latest, “Rock Band 3.” The world of “Rock Band” hasn’t changed much. Colored dots still fly across the screen as you attempt to strum, tap and sing your way to rock ’n’ roll glory. The status quo has changed a bit with the inclusion of the keyboard. This new peripheral contains a two-octave range and plays just like its real-life counterpart. With the addition of this new device, gamers will now be able to form a band that consists of singers, bass guitar, lead guitar, a drummer and now a keyboard player.

Cindy Crawford poledances for marriage BY BEVERLY FOSTER SEINBERG

Cindy Crawford takes pole-dancing classes to keep her marriage alive.

ALL MY CHILDREN Ryan told Madison it was time to face the possibility that he killed David. Greenlee wanted to fire Jackson but realized she couldn’t. Ryan took the stand and detailed his history and his love for Greenlee, upsetting Madison, who broke up with him.

The 44-year-old supermodel - who has son Presley, 11, and daughter Kaia, nine with her husband Rande Gerber - attends sexy dance classes in the dark, where she tunes into her “sexuality and sensuality” while staying in shape.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL Taylor lashed out at Brooke for inappropriate behavior with Thomas, who told her to mind her own business. When the insults didn’t stop, Brooke slapped her. Amber heard Whip, Aggie and Nick calling her new Jackie M line a disappointment. DAYS OF OUR LIVES Arianna coded before she could tell EJ the truth about who shot him. After emotional farewells from Rafe and Brady, she coded again and died. Kate overheard Brady apologizing to Arianna about not being there for her because he was busy “torturing that old lady.” GENERAL HOSPITAL Lucky, Jason and Dante set a trap to lure the Balkan with the help of Sam and Sonny’s lesser goons Max and Milo. Sam disguised herself as Brenda and was “kidnapped” by Lucky as Ronan. Lucky insisted Siobhan stay inside and not get involved, but she ventured out and was approached by a frightening figure.

She said: “There are no steps to learn with

ONE LIFE TO LIVE Eli set off the bomb, and the warehouse exploded. John disarmed Eli and cuffed him. A burning beam fell on Cole as he searched for Starr, and John and Todd were buried in burning debris when the building collapsed on them. Dani was severely injured, and Marty tended to her. THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS Diane tried to blackmail Tucker into changing his mind about the job offer by threatening to tell Ashley about their night together, but he called her bluff. Phyllis and Jack’s fight turned to passion, and they began to make love. Diane told Jack she didn’t want him in her life or Kyle’s and it was Phyllis’ fault.

pole-dancing and after having kids it’s great to re-tap into that sexuality and sensuality. The class is super-dark so you wouldn’t even recognize the woman next to you if she was next to you in the supermarket.

Teenagers as zombies are common, especially when they’re forced to function before noon. Yet they still resemble regular teenagers in appearance. On Halloween, however, many teens want to slip into something more classically undead. Here, we turn to Nickelodeon’s “Big Time Rush,” showing its Halloween episode Sunday, Oct. 31. In it, the guys, being groomed as the next hot boy band, take on traditional costumes: werewolf, Frankenstein’s monster, vampire and zombie. “They needed it to be kid-friendly, and I needed to keep the boys looking hot, foxy, pop and cool,” makeup artist Antonyia Verna says. “They still need to be pop stars and look like themselves.” Creating a zombie doesn’t have to be airbrushed, as she did on Logan Henderson, who plays Logan Mitchell. The look can be achieved by applying liquid latex with a stipple sponge. Kids can also use Elmer’s glue, applied with a stipple sponge. She also recommends using Kryolan or any kid-friendly greasepaint. To give eyes that undead look, Verna used purple and black eye shadow, which she put on wet and let drip. For the dried-out lips effect, Verna says to pucker up then paint.
