Linotype: The Film Presented by Phoenix Art Museum At Phoenix Art Museum Sunday, July 8 – 1:00pm The Linotype (pronounced “line-o-type”) completely transformed the communication of information similarly to how the internet is now changing communication again. Although these machines were revolutionary, technology began to supersede the Linotype and they were scrapped and melted-down by the thousands. Today, very few machines are still in existence. The highly-skilled operators of the Linotype are in a battle against time. If

Beach Boys 50th Anniversary Tour Presented by Danny Zelisko Presents At Grand Canyon University Arena Saturday, July 7 – 8:00pm The Beach Boys, one of the world’s most legendary and influential bands, have reunited for a global 50th Anniversary Tour. Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston, and David Marks will tour together for the first time in more than two decades. For five decades, America’s first pop band to reach the 50 year milestone has recorded and performed the music

that has become the world’s favorite soundtrack to summer. The Beach Boys continue to hold Billboard / Nielsen SoundScan’s record as the top-selling American band for albums and singles, and they are also the American group with the most Billboard Top 40 chart hits with 36. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988 and recipients of The Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement GRAMMY Award, The Beach Boys are an American institution that is iconic around the world.

their skills are not passed along to a new generation of operators, the machine will die completely. There is a small group of former operators that want to save the Linotype from the scrap yard, but some see this as a fruitless endeavor. Linotype: The Film is a feature-length documentary centered around the Linotype type casting machine. Called the “Eighth Wonder of the World” by Thomas Edison, it revolutionized printing and society. The film tells the charming and emotional story of the people connected to the Linotype and how it impacted the world.

The Bold and The BeauTiful Karen wrestled with revealing her true relationship to Danielle. Thomas worried about Steffy’s emotional state now that Liam and Hope were married, while Taylor suspected Steffy was hiding something about the trip to Italy. Brooke urged Hope to sever all ties to Deacon. Steffy and Liam had an uncomfortable encounter. While out on a double date with their significant others, Caroline and Dayzee compared notes on Thomas and Marcus.

Later, when EJ tried to order him around, Will announced he would be calling the shots from now on, since he knew EJ was not Stefano’s son. Sami wigged out when she discovered she was the last to hear about Carrie’s pregnancy and accused her sister of keeping it a secret because Rafe was the father. When she confronted Rafe about it, he replied that he hadn’t gotten anyone pregnant, which EJ overheard and took to mean that he wasn’t the father of Nicole’s child either. General hospiTal John pulled off a TSA gambit to delay Jason on the plane, then tracked down Joe Scully Jr. and accused him of murdering John’s half sister.

After Michael and Starr found her apartment in disarray, they nearly kissed, but she confessed her feelings to him. Heather told Steve that Spinelli admitted to being hired by Olivia.

When she planned to tell the police about it, however, Michael asked her to wait, fearing she would get jail time.

Nannies to the rich and famous cut loose on ‘Beverly Hills Nannies’ Kristin Lancione

We’ve seen how the real housewives of the rich and powerful live, but what about the hired hands who help make their lavish lifestyles possible? That’s where “Beverly Hills Nannies” comes in. The brainchild of Kristin Lancione, herself a nanny who runs her own nanny placement agency, the real-life ABC Family series – which premieres Wednesday, July 11 – will follow nine people who either work for or are trying to work for well-heeled families in La-La-Land. Getting families to participate in the series was difficult, Lancione says, because there was no intent on pulling punches in the portrayals. “There are situations where maybe a nanny thinks the family is being a little snobby or the kids are being a little bratty,” she said. “We all love our families that we’re with, and we’re treated with respect, but there’s a fine line, and sometimes we really are considered the help, and we’re asked to do some outrageous tasks.”

By JAcqueline cutleR “Dirty Dancing” (1987) The movie that made Patrick Swayze a star and made everyone who ever danced to “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” try to do that lift. Swayze plays the older, slightly dangerous dance instructor Johnny Castle, with whom Dr. Houseman’s (Jerry Patrick Swayze and Orbach) daughter Baby (Jennifer Grey) falls in love during a summer vacation at a Catskills resort. The film has a great supporting cast Jennifer Grey of including the late dancer Charles “Honi” Coles. “Dirty Dancing” “An Affair to Remember” (1957) Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr meet on a cruise to Europe. They fall madly in love and agree to meet six months later to make sure this is real, not just a ship romance. They are to meet at the Empire State Building, but something tragic happens. Still, it was the best vacation ever, and though remakes tried, the original can’t be beat.

(We put the exclamation point in because it is really just that good). Why is the show so good? Here’s why:


First of all, they’ve figured out how to air condition a giant tent in the middle of the 110 degree desert. We expected it to be warm and balmy. It wasn’t. KOOZA! Second, there’s no bad seats. No matter where you sit you will be amazingly close to the action…and there’s lots of action. KOOZA!

Next, the performances are everything you want from a Cirque production. Stunning, Scary, Beautiful, Unbelievable and Death Defying. Some parts even had the audience afraid to gaze upon it. The Spinning Wheel of Death brought forth screams of terror from all around the arena while the high-wire stopped our hearts. The uncanny athleticism of the performers will astound you. More incredible is the realization that they perform these miracles every single day. KOOZA!

FILM! Stan Robinson,

Reviewers’ Roundtable The following quotes were pulled from AZ Weekly Entertainment Magazine’s film columnists’ full reviews in an effort to generate a well-rounded overview of each of this weekend’s new releases

nothing to the selection of actor Andrew Garfield for the portrayal of protagonist Peter Parker. That is to say that Garfield’s performance pales in comparison to Tobey Maguire’s in the previous cinematic incarnation of this superhero franchise – which, in case you forgot, kicked off a mere 10 years ago. Fortunately, the film still manages to impress and even – for lack of a better word – amaze thanks to a terrifying antagonist and a visual aesthetic that will hook you in its web all over again.” Grade: B

at Home.’ Now, they are releasing a film that does not even achieve a fraction of the greatness of that earlier effort. To be fair, this latest release – a comedy called ‘The DoDeca-Pentathlon’ - was actually shot before not only ‘Jeff, Who Lives at Home’ but also their 2010 release ‘Cyrus.’ Therefore, the brothers were still struggling to fine-tune their storytelling skill. While this one, like their other efforts, has a humanistic charm, its tale is far too thin to earn cheers from even the Duplass duo’s diehard fans like myself.” Grade: D

Stan: “It’s refreshing when a ‘reboot’ of a franchise can offer thrilling expectations of more to come, and deliver more than a few surprises along the way, is visually captivating in the 3D-IMAX format. Andrew Garfield, with tall shoes to fill as Peter Parker, although a bit raw gives an earnest interpretation without even a trace of his English accent coming through.” Grade: B+ Joseph: “‘The Amazing SpiderMan’ owes a lot to the selection of the Lizard for its villain and

‘To Rome with Love’ A story about a number of people in Italy and the romances, adventures and predicaments they get into. Stars include Alec Baldwin, Roberto Benigni, Penelope Cruz, Judy Davis, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig, Ellen Page and Woody Allen. (R – 102 minutes) Stan: “As the saying goes ‘Nobody bat’s a thousand’ and so it is with this latest offering from writer/director Woody Allenwhere the story seems a bit disjointed at times. However, the treat for this reviewer is that he also appears as one of the central characters and the witty eccentricities he’s noted for as an actor are as prevalent as ever, while the highlighting of the city of locations for his films is beautifully breathtaking. Last year it was Paris with ‘Midnight in Paris’ (my best picture of 2011), this time it’s Rome.” Grade: C+

The following quotes were pulled from interviews conducted by AZ Weekly Entertainment Magazine’s film columnists with talent speaking on behalf of motion picture projects past and present.

Filmmakers Jay and Mark Duplass with Actors Mark Kelly, Steve Zissis and Jennifer LaFleur (‘The Do-Deca-Pentathlon’) By Joseph J. Airdo “We grew up playing sports in the neighborhood and playing parlor sports like pool and ping pong against one another. And we do continue to do that stuff but we are actually extremely collaborative in our filmmaking career. We have been really close our whole lives so our competition is not that intense. But it does surface every once in a while.” – Jay Duplass “We write characters that we are intensely in love with and have big flaws. When you really love a flawed person, you feel like you love them more deeply than anyone else. So this happens very organically as we put these people up on the screen. They

are people who we find society might make a quick judgment on.” – Mark Duplass “What is so great about Mark and Jay is how comforting and how diplomatic they are about how they approach you with changing things up. They are honest with you if you are off track but they are able to make you feel like it might be on them for not being clearer to keep you in a place where you are still willing to take risks for them.” – Mark Kelly “I have a brother who is 7 years older than me so I was able to draw upon that while making this movie. In fact, you know the opening scene of the film where I am in the bathtub talking about my fictional brother defecating in the bathtub? Well, my real brother actually did that in real life. It pretty much scarred me for life but now I am glad that it is immortalized in cinema.” – Steve Zissis

Bet You Didn’t Know! by Stan Robinson

Denzel Washington was actually water boarded during the filming of some of the torture scenes in ‘Safe House’ (2012) though only for a few seconds per take!

“[My character and I] are different in that I am a competitive maniac. I love stuff like this. If there is something to win, you had better believe that I am going to do everything short of killing somebody to win it. So, having to hang back and sit at the house while they went out and participated in these sports competitions was a bit of a bummer.” – Jennifer Lafleur

went out to capture it, we came on board after a large part of the movie had already been shot and it was our job to kind of pull it together and try and craft it into hopefully a satisfying story. It was definitely a tricky thing for us in the sense that when the footage that was shot out on the road with Katy over the course of her tour was very much like a fly on the wall in the traditional sense where there’s a camera present in the room capturing what’s going on, but it was in an unobtrusive way which is good because its quite voyeuristic and it feels like you’re right there in the room.

Jane: “It’s a very unique look at a pop star, an incredibly intimate look you haven’t seen before and it’s a really powerful female empowerment story that I think is really quite different as well. Its about a young woman who had a vision since she was 9 years old, what happened in her career and an exceptional look at a woman’s life where she had the most successful year of her professional life and one of the most emotional, personal, heartbreaks.”

Joseph: “‘To Rome with Love’ is a mess of a movie. The primary problem with writer/director Woody Allen’s latest motion picture is that it features four stories that are intercut yet do not have anything to do with one another. To make matters worse, they take place over different lengths of time. Of course, then there is the fact that only one of said stories is worth your while. Allen enthusiasts may still enjoy themselves but even they will admit that this is a long way to fall from last year’s ‘Midnight in Paris.’” Grade: D

Special Feature ‘The Truth is Out There’, Part 3’ By Stan Robinson Continuing the ‘debunking’ of the article ‘Readers Digest: 13 Things a Movie Theater Employee Won’t Tell You’ by Ilana Strauss, Brian Deveny, theater owner (since 1975) and Chairmen of the Arizona Theater Owners Association; David Ramsey, movie critic (since 1994) and President of the Phoenix Film Critics Society; and myself, a movie reviewer (since 2006) and Film Columnist with AZ Weekly Entertainment Magazine, examine the next item on the list of 13… 4. I know all the methods you use to sneak in. I just don’t always care enough to kick you out for it. Brian: “This statement coming from a theater employee, you do have theater employees who are scared when they see someone just blatantly switch auditoriums. My employees

“One of the problems is that there is a higher percentage of unemployment so you have people who have the time to see 2 or 3 movies. Another factor is that most theaters have free refills on their large drinks and their large popcorns, so some will come in, see a movie, get a refill and go into a different auditorium. If you train your employees to watch for this, it’s not hard to catch, and I don’t have employees who are too shy to ask for a ticket stub. We catch people quite often during the week, not so much on the weekends. If you’re out on a date, you’re not really going to switch auditoriums with your date in tow! It’s very easy to spot because it’s mostly people who are by themselves.” David: “Again, we have an hourly employee’s opinion rather than a manager or supervisor. I guarantee you they care and do everything they can to stop people from sneaking in but they don’t want to create a scene that will disrupt the paying guests. Sneaking into a theater is stealing; it’s the equivalent of sneaking into an all you can buffet, on board a plane or into an empty hotel room. A seat in the theater has monetary value. Stealing is stealing.” Stan: “Personally, I wouldn’t even think of doing something as negative as that which would truly affect my ‘Karma’ (and yes, its grounded in my religious convictions), and thinking it would be a matter of just how important it is to management, I’ll definitely defer on this one to hear what Brian’s take is as a theater owner…”

I think that is one reason that they are so popular. They give you a chance to recapture that great feeling you had when you were a kid reading fairy tales.”

Spider-Man and superhero siblings spin web of dream career for Stan Lee By Joseph J. Airdo

Comic book creator Stan Lee – who is the mastermind behind Marvel’s most popular superheroes – does not play favorites. “It is not possible for me to say which superhero is my favorite because I really love them all,” Lee said during a recent interview with AZ Weekly Entertainment Magazine. “The only favorite I have ever had was when I was writing one. Whichever superhero I was writing at the moment, that was my favorite because I was thinking about it.” Having said that and although Lee is responsible for more than 200 characters that can be found in comic books, on movie screens and via various other mediums, the one that he and the rest of the world is think-

ing about this weekend is SpiderMan – a superhero who made his debut August 1962 in the 15th and final issue of Amazing Fantasy and can now be seen on the big screen in “The Amazing Spider-Man.” In the film, Andrew Garfield portrays Spider-Man’s alter ego Peter Parker who, after finding a clue that might help him understand why his parents disappeared when he was young, is put on a collision course with Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans) - also known as the Lizard. And if Marvel’s “The Avengers’” more than $1.4 billion worldwide gross to date is any indication, “The Amazing Spider-Man” should have no trouble hooking moviegoers in its web.

Lee added that Garfield embodies the essence of Peter Parker perfectly and called “The Amazing SpiderMan” a “sensational” motion picture. He also pointed out he has a “magnificent” cameo in the flick, which has become somewhat of a tradition in Marvel movies – a befitting culmination to what without-adoubt has been a dream career for Lee.

When asked about his theory as to why superheroes resonate so incredibly well with so very many people, Lee related his creations to the fairy tales that nearly every human being on this planet grows up reading and loving. He explained

“The only advice I could ever give anybody is when you make a choice as to what you are going to do in life, try to choose something that you really enjoy doing,” Lee said. “If you are working at something you enjoy, then you do not feel like you are working. It is like you are playing. I do not feel that I have ever worked. I love what I do. It is like when other people go to the golf course and play golf with their friends. Well, when I am working, it is like I am playing golf with my friends.”

The new progressive jackpot system creates higher jackpots for players at all Gila River Casinos’ properties and increases the excitement of one of the more popular table games. Days after the installment of the linked

By Justin Patrick Recently, a company by the name of Tactus demonstrated a new technology that should revolutionize the way we think about touch screen interfaces.  With some hangers-on to RIM Blackberry devices simply to have a tactile keyboard; soon you’ll be able to enjoy the best of both worlds. Tactus technology gives you a touch screen that actually morphs its shape to produce physical keys on the touch screen where there are buttons in your application.

oil can be pumped, ‘inflating’ the keys. The current system requires that the channels are built into the hardware, so that the configuration is fixed to represent portrait/ landscape configuration for QWERTY or a dialpad, but already apps can selectively control only particular keys or parts of the screen. In the future, Tactus hopes to develop a full-screen, instantly customizable key area. Devices using this technology should start to appear in the beginning of 2013!


The technology is based on microfluidics, wherein a series of tiny channels are arranged beneath the flexible surface of the touchscreen, through which a reservoir of special with the vapor where it bonds at a molecular to protect the phone. Since the vapor is so small, after the process is complete you can’t see or detect the coating; making it perfect for phones.

Texting In The Rain! By Justin Patrick Last week, while designing some reporting technology for a company that needed mobile phone apps they could use while out in the middle of the Ocean; we ran across some interesting technology involving waterproofing. If you’re like me, you’ve lost at least one or two mobile devices to water damage.  I’ve always considered damage from water to be something that I would just have to deal with when it came to mobile technology. Well, thanks to the guys over at Liquipel, I can use a glass of water for an iPhone stand! Liquipel is able to water proof devices using a specialized coating in the form of vapor.  They place the device in a chamber then fill the chamber

This process costs around $60, and requires that you send your device to Liquipel to be treated. Once complete the company will send your protected device back, where it will now be able to withstand submersion in liquid or the occasional heavy rain shower. The treatment can take anywhere from 2 hours to a few days to complete, depending on the purchase options you choose. Liquipel claims also that it has a five-point tracking procedure, so you can monitor the progress of your phone at all times, alleviating any worries you may have about actually receiving your device back. Never has waterproofing your device been so simple and easy.  The only things that truly worked before this were giant bulky waterproof cases.  Finally, there is a better way!

Sweet Wine vs. Fruitiness “I only like sweet wines.” I hear this phrase very often, especially from women who are used to drinking mass-produced White Zinfandel. But more often than not, they actually mean that they enjoy fruity aromas.

Doug Pike lives in Scottsdale and is a 20-year member of the National Cartoonists Society. He is the author of Gone With The Wine, The Grapes of Laugh, and the co-author, with Harry Margulies, of Less Than A Full Deck.

To take this one step further, taste the Beringer White Zin againsta dessert wine, like a ruby Port or similar. This test puts lower sugar against massive sugars. The Beringer will taste less cloying (flat and sugary) while the dessert wine will hammer home the differentiation. Enjoy! By Nathan Brugnone

You can easily test yourself and friends’ perceptions on this. Pour a Page Springs Cellars “La Flor Rosa” next to a Beringer White Zin. First taste the La Flor Rosa. It’s a totally dry Rosé, made from various red grapes. Swirl, smell and taste. You should get some fruitiness along with some more savory notes. Now, in a clean glass, pour the Beringer and repeat. Strawberry aromas will likely be the most prominent and discernible fruit notes—likely the only aromas, in fact. So, after this test you should have an idea of what is meant when weighing sweetness against fruitiness. And I should point out that Beringer does contain residual sugar, meaning it is both a sweeter wine and also a fruity wine.

Ask for these wines at finer restauarants Valley-wide

Well the talk of the town seems to be about the heat and its official arrival – in Arizona and in many other parts of the country. That brings to mind a question that people often ask me, “what’s the best temperature for wine?” Most people know that 55 to 65 degrees is a good range for wine storage. But the reality is that many people don’t have wine storage units or they buy wine for more immediate consumption. Or maybe you’re bringing a bottle of wine to a party.You know how it works – you go to the wine shop and pick up a few bottles, bring them home, and there they remain—on the kitchen counter. Whites go straight into the refrigerator; that’s our usual routine. What about the reds? A lot of people don’t like to drink red wine during the hot months. After all, red wine is known to increase your body temperature and what crazy person would want to do that when the thermometer is reading 108? If you feel a cold gin and tonic calling your name, but you really want the pleasures of combining your wine with your food and joining in with others at your dinner party, don’t despair! Red wine is still a must. In these hot temperatures, I recommend keeping a few bottles of your reds in the refrigerator too. The benefits are many. First, the temperature is more consistent than it might be in your house, where your thermostat is on a timer and varies the temperature throughout the day. Secondly, you can take the bottle out a few minutes before you plan to drink it to allow it to come down a bit. If it ends up at 60-65 degrees, in this warmth, you may find you enjoy it more…cool, refreshing, interesting. Also, as it warms up over the course of drinking it, the nuances of the wine may jump out at you more. I find the changing characteristics more pronounced this way.

Think Steak.

(Or Ribs, Chicken, Seafood & Wine)

One of my contacts in the wine glass industry, who lives in Arizona, uses this approach in the hot months. He decides early in the day what his dinner will be, then he selects a red wine. He opens it, lightly recorks it, and into the refrigerator it goes. Just before dinner, he takes it out and…well, you know the rest. Enjoy your red wine in the summer!

Tweet Me, Squeeze Me, Make Me Wine By Rhonni Moffitt, Publisher Arizona Vines & Wines Do you tweet? Are you a Facebook fanatic? Do you pine for Pinterist… Do you want to stay up on the latest events, trending topics and even a little insider gossip? What about making some new friends with similar interests or finding the latest deals? Social media can accomplish all of that!

REGIONAL SPOTLIGHT: Châteauneuf-du-Pape By Rhonni Moffitt, Publisher Arizona Vines & Wines Most of us in the United States are used to purchasing a wine by the varietal name… Cabernet or Chardonnay, while in the Old World wines were classified by regions, such as Bordeaux or Champagne. This can be very confusing for newcomers and a little perplexing to not-so-newcomers, too! One such region that’s discussed a lot in Arizona is the Rhone Valley. Having a similar soils and terroir to Arizona, many winemakers here have chosen to focus on growing Rhone varietals. The Rhone is broken into two main regions, the Northern Rhone and the Southern Rhone, and then further into sub-regions such as Côte-Rôtie or Côtes du Rhône. A favorite of Arizona winemakers is Châteauneufdu-Pape. Châteauneuf-du-Pape is located in southeastern France and covers about 7900 acres. In French, Châteauneufdu-Pape roughly means the castle of the

Pope, or the Pope’s house, and its history is intertwined with papal history. There are 13 grape varietals allowed in producing either red or white wine which are traditionally a blend of the approved grapes. The most popular blend is a GSM, or Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, a blend you’ll find in Pillsbury Wine Company’s “Roan Red,” an homage to Châteauneufdu-Pape and a play on words,(Roan refers to a horse).

While most everyone on the planet now has a Facebook account, for some Twitter, Foursquare, Pinterest and all the other social media sites can be daunting and overwhelming. You don’t have to do all of it. Choose what fits into your life and use these sites as a tool to help you navigate through your love of wine (and other interests, too, of course). A few tips: ●●

There are only six permitted white varieties. These have attracted interest from Arizona wine growers. You’ll now find a beautiful Roussanne produced at Page Springs Cellars and Dos Cabezas Meskeoli, a white blend, is primarily Picpoul Blanc. Châteauneuf-du-Pape wines are perfect food wines. Pair one with a lighter meat such as lamb or pork, or even with a chorizo pizza. The food should bring out a light spice in the wine and increase the depth of character.


Explore for yourself, either at your neighborhood wine store or at your favorite Arizona winery. ●●

BEER! CRAFT BEER AND CHARITY - PART 2 Last time we talked about breweries and charity. This time, we are going to talk a little about charities that involve beer. We will chat about beer events and charities that are founded as a result of beer. First off, you may not realize this but in Arizona, as in virtually all states, most beer (and wine and spirits) events require the involvement of a charity (defined as a charitable, civic, fraternal, political or religious organization) . Any time beer is donated, or an event is held in a park or some other venue that would not normally sell beer, a Special Event Permit, or Series 15 License, is required. For example, when you attended Ameri-CAN Festival last month, did you know that the Scottsdale Cultural Council received a portion of the proceeds in exchange for obtaining the proper license? Or that the Arizona Craft Brewers Guild

who puts on the amazing Strong Beer Festival every year is actually an IRS certified non-profit business league? Maybe you did, maybe you didn’t. The important thing is there IRS status permits them to be the host and beneficiary of the festival. The Guild does quite a bit to support our craft beer scene through their efforts and the Strong Beer Festival is one of their major sources of funding. What’s involved in putting on one of these charity festivals? First you need your non-profit organization (as defined under the IRS 501 C regulations. After that you need a Special Events Permit application from the Arizona Department of Liquor Licenses and Control. Once you have all that, you


July 5th, 2012 - July 11th, 2012

Follow us on and The High-End Beer Division of Crescent Crown� need a location that has agreed to let you use their facility for your event. If it happens to be a facility that already has a liquor license, they will have to agree to suspend the liquor license for the area where the charity event is to be held. For example, if the event is to be held in a separate banquet area of a hotel, then the hotel may not sell any other alcohol in that area. No other alcohol may be carried into or out of that area. This is all designed to keep from blurring the lines between charity event and regular service at a licensed facility.

That sounds like enough about events. What about charities that focus on beer?

Regardless, now you have the application and venue. Next up is getting the local municipality to sign off on the application. Before the state will issue a permit, the town that it is being held in must approve it. Every town has different policies. For example, Mesa requires approval at a City Council meeting, while other towns allow administrative staff to approve. Once the town approves the event, it is off to the Arizona liquor department for their approval. After that, you can have your event. It should be noted that this entire process is pretty detailed and the information required regarding the event, the organizers, event security, etc is reviewed at every level. The process can take as much as 45 days depending what municipality you are holding the event in, and how accurate your application is.

Perhaps the most noted of these is Pints for Prostates. Founded by prostate cancer survivor Rick Lyke in 2008, the campaign raises awareness among men about the need for regular health screenings and PSA testing by making appearances at beer festivals, social networking and pro bono advertising.

During the event, it is probable that agents from the liquor department will show up to make sure that all laws are being observed and that the event is being run properly. They are there to help make sure your event is a success and to make sure that nothing is being done that would jeopardize public safety or violate liquor laws. Good tip is to make sure you know what your responsibilities are surrounding service of alcohol.

It is agrassroots organization with no paid staff that counts on the support of volunteers. They are reaching men through the universal language of beer thanks to brewers, beer bars, publishers, festival organizers and other businesses that have adopted their cause as their own. They appreciate the support for men who are battling prostate cancer and in helping with their mission, which is to raise the awareness of men about the need for regular prostate health screenings and PSA testing. They run a variety of events, but may be most known, at least among beer geeks, for their annual Denver Rare Beer Tasting. This event, held Friday of Great American Beer Festival week, is one of the toughest tickets in town. The Denver Rare Beer Tasting features 20 breweries providing an assortment of very rare beers. This

event takes place from 1:00 to 4:00 PM at Wynkoop Brewing and the cost last year was $80. Check out more details on this outstanding charity at www. Beer Church is an interesting organization. They adhere to one simple principle - make the world a better place one beer at a time. As they further elaborate on their web site ( ) , “To that end, we organize fundraisers that provide easy and fun ways for beer lovers to contribute to the community. We have been doing it since 1998. In that time, we have raised nearly $100,000 for a number of different charitable causes. With love in our hearts and beer in our hands, we have helped pet shelters, food banks, women’s shelters, and many other worthy causes.” A pretty impressive effort. They believe the best way to make the world a better place is by providing information and entertainment for people who appreciate beer. This also gives them a way to organize beer lovers and share their message with the world.

Of course, we all know our local favorite, The Beer for Brains Foundation. The Beer for Brains Foundation is a national, non-profit organization of craft-beer lovers, distributors and brewers, who are committed to: Raising public awareness about brain cancer, Engendering compassion for its victims andHelping fund groundbreaking research leading to a cure. Each year, they stage unique, large-scale craft-beer appreciation/ fundraising events across the country, working independently or in partnership with breweries and local organizations. Events run the gamut from open parties featuring huge assortments of rare, craft beers and an equally diverse – and off-beat – assortment of foods and entertainers to local chef beer-wine food pairing competitions, special craftbeer educational dinners and much more. BFBF events are all about having fun while supporting a worthy cause.

July 5th, 2012 - July 11th, 2012



If you haven’t attended a BFBF event, you owe it to yourself. In the two years since their founding, they have gone international, recently bringing five different craft breweries (including local favorite SanTan) to Mondial de la Biere, an international beer festival held in Montreal. Other events they have done include Epicuriad, a pairing of local chefs, beer and wine; Colorado Affair, a celebration of Colorado beers as part of Great American Beer Festival; Bocce BrewHaHa, a unique bocce tournament with a big focus on craft beer; and RAREaffair. RAREaffair is their big, signature event and features restaurant samplings along with fantastic beer, wine and spirits. They go out of their way to get beers that are unusual, at least in Arizona. In past years, featured beers have included Founders Devil Dancer, Uncommon Brewers Siamese

Twin, Papago Brewing and Redstone Mead collaboration Laurie’s Sparkle, Breckenridge Brewing Stranahan’s Whiskey Barrel Vanilla Porter and Ska Brewing Hoperation Ivy. The 2012 event is slated for November 10 and details will be announced soon. Follow the Foundation at This is by no means an exhaustive list, but gives you an idea about how important supporting the community is to craft beer people. When you support craft beer you are supporting these types of charities and events; and when you support these events, you are supporting craft beer. Either way, drinking great beer and helping others out is a great way to enjoy yourself. I highly recommend it.

EDDIE MATNEY & BEER? Absolutely!

Hello beer lovers, today let’s chat about a new brew collaboration between our local hero Sonoran Brewing Company and Chef Eddie Matney called “FFF” or fishing, family & food. As many of you know Eddie Matney is known the world over for Cuisine ala Americana with dishes shifting between many different cultures and styles of cooking. Sonoran on the other hand is known for recently taking a walk on the wild side in brewing a collaboration beer with Chef Jeremy Pacheco from Lon’s at the Hermosa. It would seem that walk wasn’t quite wild enough for Sonoran Brew Master Zach Schroeder so this time he’s turning the volume up to TEN! Let’s begin by saying this brew is made with fresh grape fruit halves, brown sugar and basil. It’s got volume, although not in the fashion you might imagine. This is not a Lost Abbey blow you chin of sort of concoction. This beer has class, subtle complexities and a light airy, earthy quality making it perfect for pairing with summer seafood. I simply adore the way the brown sugar works in balancing the grapefruit and mellowing the basil. On the nose the basil jumps right out at you and settles on the palate with a touch of citrus and black pepper that just seems right. The finish is light, slightly sweet and refreshing like that first bite of fresh salsa from your home garden. Perfect foods pairings include lime marinated grilled salmon served with a mango, jalapeno and pineapple salsa or a chilled fruit salad with coconut shavings and a honey basil vinaigrette.

Check out where to enjoy and purchase these local brands on “Beer Spy” at

Sonoran has really found a niche here in collaborating with our local Arizona chef’s and so far it’s two for two to the good. By the way, this is a Very Limited Release so get it while it’s hot, err, cool. Cheers!

Talk shows and improv comedy collide in “Trust Us With Your Life,” an unconventional ABC summer series premiering Tuesday, July 10. In each episode, host Fred Willard interviews a celebrity about his life and, at intervals, turns to the show’s group of improv comics to act out the moment the star has just described. “Fred turns to us and, with some sort of game element to it, has us improvise on what we have just heard – and Fred Willard it can get really interesting,” explains Colin Mochrie, the Scottish-Canadian comic and actor who appears in each episode along with Wayne Brady and Jonathan Mangum as well as some guest performers. “Jerry Springer started off talking about his grandparents who, I believe, were lost in the Holocaust. That’s not really sidesplitting improv info, but it definitely kept it interesting for us.” Other celebrity guests include Ricky Gervais, Florence Henderson, David Hasselhoff, Jack and Kelly Osbourne, and Jane Seymour, but Mochrie said two guests who are not especially associated with comedy gave the improvisers some of the richest material with their stories.

George Lopez


Of ‘GeOrGe LOpez: It’S NOt Me, It’S YOu’ on HBo Q: What’s your main thought about doing your third live stand-up HBO special, “George Lopez: It’s Not Me, It’s You” (Saturday, July 14)? A: I am probably the only person who still does them live. It scares a lot of people, but I’m a big fan of boxing, and you don’t get knocked out and get back in and say, “Let me try that again. That didn’t work out too well the first time.” I believe that doing it live the night of the show is more compelling and more exciting.

Zimmern takes a ‘Bizarre’ look at Vegas

Andrew Zimmern

Andrew Zimmern is joining some distinguished company. With the premiere of the summer season of “Bizarre Foods America” on Travel Channel Monday, July 9, his “Bizarre Foods” franchise reaches its 100th episode, and he’s celebrating in style, spending the occasion in one of the world’s most excessive locales – Las Vegas. “I’ve been trying to go to Vegas with this show for five years,” Zimmern says. “Vegas is a place that’s over the top. Everything is bigger, badder, more beautiful. The cars are faster, the signs are brighter and twinklier. The women’s decolletage is more revealing, and the augmentation is bigger. Everything is bigger in Vegas.”

Nancy Botwin “Weeds” costume designer Linda Bass is very sad that Season 8 will be the series’ last. “It’s my all-time favorite show,” she says. “It is like dessert after a meal. I started in the fourth season, and what struck me about the first three is the thing I loved about Nancy (played by Mary-Louise Parker) is she is so brave in her clothes choices. She can be in the most precarious situation wearing a see-through blouse. She is very body confident, and it didn’t matter where she found herself; it always came through.” Bass has a unique approach to dressing Nancy. “I read the script and think logically what Nancy would wear,” she says, “and then I always have to turn it around 360. She never does the expected; she does the unexpected, and she puts the Nancy twist on everything. It gets her in trouble a lot of the time, but it’s why she ends up prevailing.”

Mary-Louise Parker

Cat Deeley hosts Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance” but was never a serious dancer herself. “I got sucked into ballet as a kid,” she says. “It was supposed to make me a bit more girlie and graceful. I preferred to be catching frogs.” Though ballet didn’t take, the fashion sense, evident in Deeley’s glamorous wardrobe for the Wednesday dance competition, did. And that obsession started as a girl. “As long as I had an opinion about it, I could wear whatever I wanted,” Deeley says. Her main criterion, she recalls, was “how spinny the skirt was, how much it stuck out.” Though she has stylists eager to dress her, Deeley is an avowed secondhand store browser. “My favorite thing in the world is to go to a great flea market and just have a hunt,” she says. “For me, it is like finding treasure. And normally I have to have a good, large, substantial coffee.” When not on the prowl for vintage clothes, Deeley hosts two shows on Fox this summer, the dance show and “The Choice.” “It’s basically a dating show,” she says, “a fun, silly entertaining show. Anyone can watch it. The tongue is firmly in cheek.” “The Choice” makes Deeley feel like a matchmaker, she says. “I think this show holds some promise,” Deeley says of the show blatantly modeled on “The Voice.” “It is just a numbers game. You put enough bums in the seats, enough people walk onstage, something has to stick. We meet people in all different ways, whether on the Internet or speed dating. Why shouldn’t this work?” The success of “So You Think You Can Dance” – now one night a week instead of two – delights Deeley. “It’s nine seasons,” she says. “Who would have thought it?”

The complex where I live does complimentary happy hour every Friday, and this is where I discovered food from the Jalapeno Inferno. The happy hour runs weekdays 3:30pm6:30pm. What I really enjoy about the drinks on their happy hour menu is that they are top shelf items! Man, oh man do I love tequila! The Don Julio margarita was my favorite for $7.99. The appetizers are half off, which they are not even that pricey to begin with so it turns out to be an amazing deal! The Margarita Ceviche has fresh lime marinated shrimp with a clam-tomato broth, fresh jalapenos, cucumber, and onion; don’t pass this up, it is incredible and it’s only $4!!! Everyone loves mini fundidos: six mini flour tortillas stuffed with shredded chicken and topped with jalapeno cream cheese. Can’t decide?? They have a sampler platter for only $6.50. 23587 N.

Ice Age: Continental Drift – Arctic Games Wii, PS3, X360, DS/$29.99-$39.99/July 10 Manny the mammoth and his friends have spent several feature films running from humans, saber-toothed tigers, dinosaurs and even the Earth itself, but in this latest adventure from Activision the gang is about to encounter some new adversaries: pirates. Sadly, these particular pirates have a problem: They have plenty of treasure but can’t decide how to split it up. Their only solution is to have a series of games, such as ski jumping and glacial hopping, and give all of the treasure to the winner. Now you must choose to side with the pirates or with Manny’s crew and compete in motion-controlled events to see who will really take home the gold. While the game makes basic use of each of the consoles’ motion control devices, the simple events coupled with the colorful characters from the films are sure to please fans of all ages.

What Is An ‘Adrenaline Junkie’? The term ‘Adrenaline Junkie’ was popularly used in the 1991 movie Point Break in reference to people who favor dangerous activities for the adrenaline rush that accompanies them. However, you don’t have to be a bank robber, sky diver or other obvious type of danger-seeker to be hooked on the rush that comes from a little stress; adrenaline junkies come in much more subtle forms.


●● Students or workers who wait until the last minute to begin a project and then need to really scramble to get it done.

●● The people who are always rushing, with a packed schedule—and if things begin to slow down, they take on more.

The list could go on, but you get the picture. This is not to say that every busy person or crisis-ridden soul is an adrenaline junkie—some people do come by these circumstances by chance, but if it’s a circumstance that seems to span years and take on different forms (as with people who experience ‘crisis’ after ‘crisis’, or continually over-schedule themselves) love of adrenaline could be the culprit.

●● The people who have dramatic conflicts with people in their lives, exploding in anger and otherwise causing unnecessary ‘drama’.

RUSH! Section -


Subtle Adrenaline Junkies The everyday adrenaline junkie is much more subtle and common than the sensational characters in film—though less subtle and more sensational than the average person. They tend to create drama and crises in their lives--either on a conscious or unconscious level—to trigger the body’s stress response and get the rush that comes with the excitement. These are people who don’t merely survive well under pressure, but work best under stressful circumstances. The following are examples of everyday adrenaline junkies who may be in your life—or maybe one of these describes you!

●● The people who always seem to have a crisis going in their life (real or overblown)—or surround themselves with troubled souls who constantly need their help.

MUSIC ON TV Wednesday

CAROLINA LIAR WITH KELLY CLARKSON & THE FRAY! August 1st US Airways Center The pop-rock band, Carolina Liar, will be heading out on a national US tour with Kelly Clarkson and The Fray to support their 2011 release Wild Blessed Freedom, produced by Max Martin (Katy Perry, Pink, Avril Lavigne) and Shellback (Kesha, Leona Lewis, Maroon 5) with a stop here in the Valley on August 1st 2012.   Carolina Liar consists of Chad Wolf, vocals/guitar, Rickard Göransson, guitar, Johan Carlsson, bass/keyboards, and Peter Karlsson, drums. A few years back, Wolf boarded a plane for the first time in his life and headed west in search of greener pastures. A stranger in a strange town, he worked a series of odd jobs to make ends meet before landing an internship with renowned songwriter Diane Warren, whom he credits with helping to sharpen his songwriting skills. But it was a chance gig house-sitting for famed Swedish producer Max Martin that completely changed his game. “Max and I became buddies through a mutual friend, but I never wanted to bring up music around him,” he recalls. But after hearing one of Wolf’s songs, the producer phoned from Stockholm and said “if you can write three more as good as this one, maybe we can work something out.”    The band has toured extensively in support of the first album, sharing stages with the likes of One Republic, Rob Thomas, Gavin DeGraw, The Academy Is..., and We The Kings.  They also performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live and The Ellen Degeneres Show, played themselves in an episode of 90210, and were featured in both MTV’s “Discover & Download” and VH1’s “You Oughta Know” programs. For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit: www.CarolinaLiar. com.

In Shakespeare’s “Hamlet,” the ghost of the Prince of Denmark’s slain father appears and sends his son off on the trail of an uncle who became king through murder. Dr. Daniel Pierce (Eric McCormack), the neuroscience professor who is the lead character in the TNT drama “Perception,” premiering Monday, July 9, doesn’t exactly see dead people, but he does see people that aren’t really there – and sometimes they’re helpful in solving the crimes brought to him by a former student, FBI agent Kate Moretti (Rachael Leigh Cook). Pierce has paranoid schizophrenia, which causes hallucinations and delusions. But at the same time, he has a keen intellect and knowledge of how the human brain works, which allows him to discern patterns and underlying motives in human behavior. Against medical advice, Pierce decides to go off his medications and use his hallucinations to help give him an insight into crimes that his conscious mind may not be able to process. “They are the voices in my head,” says McCormack, talking in his trailer between scenes on the show’s sets in a smaller city north of Los Angeles. “It’s the other part of my brain talking to me and saying, ‘You know the answer to this; you’ve just got to work through it.’ “It’s a procedural, but there’s also a real emotional core. Nobody wants a boring leading man.” But working on these “Rubik’s Cubes of mystery,” as McCormack calls them, is still risky for Pierce because it interrupts his careful routine, which helps him cope without the help of drugs. “No one can do what Pierce does,” says McCormack. “He’s not on his meds, so the best way he can help himself, besides diet and scheduling and routine, is solving puzzles. The dichotomy is that when she comes to him with these cases, it can really throw his routine.” Pierce also doesn’t like how the meds affect his thought processes.
