ASU Gammage Thursday & Friday 7:30 pm Saturday 2 pm & 7:30 pm Sunday 2 pm & 7 pm Thru February 27 This is a hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era. Three unlikely friends conspire to take control of their company and learn there’s nothing they can’t do - even in a man’s world. Outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic, 9 to 5: The Musical is about teaming up and taking care of business. It’s about getting credit and getting even. This new musical comedy, direct from Broadway, is based on the hit movie featuring Dolly Parton’s original hit title song along with a new Tony Award and Grammy-nominated score.

Arizona Theatre Company Herberger Theater Center Wednesday 7:30 pm Thursday 2 pm & 7:30 pm Friday 8 pm Saturday 8 pm Sunday 1 pm 7 pm Love, intrigue, romance and suicide…and that’s just in the play they’re rehearsing. In the late 1930’s, Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne, the two most revered stars of the Broadway stage, decide to perform Chekhov’s masterpiece The Sea Gull. But first they must retreat to ‘investigate’ the play at Ten Chimneys, their legendary Wisconsin estate, where they are surrounded by actors, family and hangers-on. When a young actress named Uta Hagen arrives, a romantic triangle begins to mirror the events in Chekhov’s play about passion and art. The result is a sweet, sad, funny and revealing look at the private lives of artists who are always on the stage.

Nick@ Night By Nick Connell “Climb every mountain, till you find your dream.” Mother Abbess, Sound of Music. THE SOUND OF MUSIC at The Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre, Mesa There’s good reason to be happy again during these challenging and mercurial times - a beautiful and touching production of The Sound of Music opened this weekend at The Broadway Palm in Mesa. This production brings hope again to every person facing an uncertain future, whether in Wisconsin or Cairo. In the end, the truth and the light prevail. Which in this short two hour production revolves around two courageous characters - Maria and Georg Von Trapp, who fall in love and stand up for what they believe, in the face of evil and madness. Capturing the beauty of this musical favorite from Rodgers and Hammerstein, and the book by Howard Lindsey and Russel Crouse, is Paige Mattox as Maria and Rob Watson as Georg. The Direction from Dean Sobon must have been fun with the chemistry these two breathed into this family favorite. You’ll fall in love with Maria the moments she sings the first note of “The Sound of Music”, while capturing the hearts of the children in “Do-Re-Mi” and “The Lonely Goatherd”; and Georg in “How Can Love Survive” and “No Way To Stop It”. Oh yes, those adorable and charming Von Trapp children - that nearly steal the show with their cute and lovable antics. Led in this cast by Donovan Fiore, Jessie Pauley, Jonah Carlson, Payton Bioletto, Jocelyn Kleinman, and the darling Rebecca Webb. I’ll have to see this show twice just to see the double cast version of these Von Trapp children. You’ll also enjoy the stellar voices of Mother Abbess (Kathleen Ruhleder) and the Nuns of Nonnberg Abbey on “Preledium” and “Climb Ev’ry Mountain”. This show deserves a “highest mark award” for bringing this wonderful story back into our hearts with loving kindness. Thru April 9th Tickets 480-325-6700 or BroadwaypalmWest.com “All the wrong people in love with all the wrong people.” Sydney, Ten Chimneys TEN CHIMNEYS Arizona Theatre Company at The Herberger Theater Center “Much ado about nothing” as Shakespeare would say - but in Wisconsin that might not be so true anymore. This is the location of ATC’s world première production of Ten Chimneys by Jeffrey Hatcher that opened this weekend to an enamored local audience-who were treated to a great show loaded with wit, innuendo and dramatic fanfare. This is the true story (yet fictionalized) of the famous dynamic acting duo of Lynn Fontanne (Suzanne Bouchard) and Alfred Lunt (Steve Hendrickson). These two are the ying yang yolk of this cleverly written and produced play within a play, set in the pastoral settings of southern Wisconsin between 1938 and 1945 at their infamous country home with ten chimneys. There’s fun to be had in this family affair revolving around a rehearsal and production of “The Seagull” by Chekov, and these two are the guiding sails of this fluffy drama attraction. But there’s no trick without a mark - which comes in the form of another famous actress Uta Hagen(Anna Bullard), who marvelously joins the company for a summer of intrigue and romance. Wrap mother superior Hattie Sederholm, Alfred’s mother (Linda Stephens) into the picnic with her son Carl Sederholm(Marcus Truschinski), the family hustler, and his half sister Louise Greene(Naomi Jacobson), the family servant, with Mr. Sydney Greenstreet(Michael Winters) making a grand appearance, and you have “a Vesuvius of mucus” playing out in full wit and wisdom. One can only wonder how close this ensemble cast captured the hearts of the real beasts from Genesee Depot, Wisconsin… Thru March 6th, Tickets 602-256-6899 or ArizonaTheatre.org KUDOS…. to the hilarious and funny production of SPAMALOT from the Theater League last weekend at The Orpheum Theatre. I’m convinced “We’re Not Dead Yet” and we should all begin to “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life”- then you might just get lucky and “Find Your Grail”! THE SEDONA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL Sedona, AZ thru Feb. 27th Don’t miss the incredible lineup coming this week to the Sedona International Film Festival - through Sunday: With Nicolas Cage, Gary Sinise, Jonathan Winters, Rita Rudner, Rip Torn and Davis Rasche in attendance. The list of films includes some powerful documentaries and features including “Healing; Miracles, Mysteries and John of God”; “Forks Over Knifes” ; “Among Us” ; “Enemies of the People”; Lt. Dan Band; “For the Common Good”; and “Close to the Sun” just to name a few. BREAK A LEG!

Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts Presents: DEE DEE BRIDGEWATER TO BILLIE WITH LOVE: A CELEBRATION OF LADY DAY

Friday, February 25th at 8pm A Grammy Award-winning recording artist and host of NPR’s popular JazzSet program, Dee Dee Bridgewater is a consummate entertainer and sparkling ambassador for jazz. As a student, she toured the Soviet Union in 1969 with the University of Illinois Big Band before making her New York debut in 1970 as vocalist for the band led by Thad Jones and Mel Lewis, one of the premier jazz orchestras of the time. In 1975, she took Broadway by storm, winning the Tony Award for her role as Glinda the Good Witch in The Wiz. This began a long line of awards and accolades as well as opportunities to work in Tokyo, Los Angeles, Paris and London, where she garnered the coveted Laurence Olivier Award nomination as ‘Best Actress’ for her tour de force portrayal of jazz legend Billie Holiday in Stephen Stahl’s Lady Day.

Be among the first to get the latest ‘scoop’ from Joseph J. Airdo at Examiner. com AZ Weekly’s Movie Reviewers Oscar® Predictions! During the last few weeks we’ve experienced the awards shows, speculations, predictions, and the industry ‘buzz’ as we approach the most celebrated awards for excellence in motion picture production, the Oscars®. Here are the predictions of movie reviewers Joseph Airdo, Randy Montgomery, and Stan Robinson for the 83rd Annual Academy Awards® Best Picture: Joseph: “The Social Network” Unfortunately, the “Facebook movie” has been unstoppable at just about every other awards show so it would come as a surprise if Oscar did not “friend” this film, too. Randy: ‘The Social Network’ - It’s not my top choice, but my bet is The Social Network all the way. Stan: ‘The King’s Speech’ - This film has it all, drama, comedy, a glimpse into history and a true story! It’s a compelling story of a man who has personal issues as he leads his country into World War II. Best Director: Joseph: Tom Hooper (“The King’s Speech”) - Seeing as the Best Picture votes will weigh slightly heavier in “The Social Network’s” favor, Hooper will have to settle for this nice consolation prize. Randy: Darren Aronofsky - The Social Network seems to be winning everything, but for this category, I say

February 24th, 2011 - March 2nd, 2011

Darren Aronofsky for Black Swan. Stan: Tom Hooper - The director of ‘The King’s Speech’ skillfully guided cast and crew to present a film that will undoubtedly be heralded as a cinematic tapestry of a historical period in time when the world was at war.

Stan: Natalie Portman - Her performance of a ‘role within a role’ captures the duality of the character both emotionally and physically with a stunning performance as an actor and a skillful ballet dancer for her dancing scenes.

Best Actor:

Best Supporting Actress:

Joseph: Colin Firth (“The King’s Speech”) - As stuttering royalty in a period piece, Firth kind of hit the Oscar jackpot with this role, at least when you consider the award’s history. Randy: Colin Firth - This is a tough one, both Javier Bardem and Colin Firth are more than deserving. Since I have to choose, I say Firth. Stan: Colin Firth - Portraying an actual person is a daunting challenge for any actor, through his portrayal of King George VI; we emotionally feel the intricacies’ of the character he presented.

Joseph: Melissa Leo (“The Fighter”) - Leo gave stellar performances in several movies last year, including “Conviction,” “The Dry Land” and “Welcome to the Rileys,” so Oscar will definitely reward her. Randy: Hailee Steinfeld - Her performance made True Grit, so it would only be natural that Hailee Steinfeld takes “Best Supporting Actress.” Stan: Melissa Leo - Shedding the usual nuances of past roles, delivers a character of extremes yet maintains the likability of a loved one as the controlling mother.

Best Supporting Actor: Joseph: Christian Bale (“The Fighter”) - Alex Pettyfer, from “I Am Number Four” and the upcoming “Beastly,” promised me that Bale would win for “tackling a role within a role.” Randy: Christian Bale - His performance in The Fighter was a bit overdone and annoying to me, but I think Christian Bale will sweep this category. Stan: Christian Bale - Known for his ‘chameleon physicality’ of the roles he undertakes, his performance of a man in turmoil is mesmerizing to watch as before our eyes he is a thin ‘drugged out’ at the start. By the end, he’s a healthy framed man on the road to recovery. Best Actress: Joseph: Natalie Portman (“Black Swan”) - Although her appearance with Ashton Kutcher in “No Strings Attached” may have slightly reduced her chances, Portman is still a nobrainer. Randy: Natalie Portman - Jennifer Lawrence SHOULD be the winner, but don’t be surprised if Natalie Portman walks away with the golden statue.

AZWeeklyMagazine.com

Best Animated Feature Film: Joseph: “Toy Story 3” - Since the Academy will undoubtedly fail to acknowledge what is truly best movie of 2010 with a Best Picture win, it surely will not rob it of a much-deserved win in this category. Randy: ‘Toy Story 3’ - No question, this one will go to Toy Story 3. If it won’t win “Best Picture,” it will easily snag the “Animated” category. Stan: ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ Presents a film that virtually entertains viewers of all ages while delivering messages of courage, parenting, and friendship we can all take with us to enhance our lives. Best Cinematography: Joseph: “Black Swan” - A single glance at Matthew Libatique’s opening or closing scenes from this visually stunning masterpiece will show you that this pick is nothing short of a show-in. Randy: ‘Black Swan’ - Visually stunning and beautiful, this one goes to Black Swan. Stan: ‘Inception’ ~ Cinematographer Wally Pfister cinematically presented the two diverse worlds of reality and dreams for a compelling visual experiContinued on Page 14...

I Am Number Four in D-BOX

Joseph: “Biutiful” - It would be nice if the Academy were to take a chance on Greece’s controversial “Dogtooth” but this movie from Mexico and filmmaker Alejandro Gonzlez IÒrritu is probably the safer choice. Randy: ‘Biutiful’ - Three of the films in this category were not available to us for screening. Dogtooth is a little too out there, so Biutiful is my choice. Stan: ‘Biutiful’ - A film presentation that supersedes language and communicates with visual emotion while not relying on the spoken words to tell the story is truly exceptional. Best Documentary:

Joseph: “Exit Through the Giftshop” - Controversy and speculation only continue to fuel this look at underground art. But is it right for the Oscar in this category to be awarded to what very well may be a hoax? Randy: ‘Restrepo’ - Restrepo was groundbreaking, moving and powerful. Stan: ‘Inside Job’ - In presenting the events of the ‘global financial meltdown’ from a ‘world connected eye’ makes one take a deep breath when we take in the totality as the closing credits roll. Best Adapted Screenplay: Joseph: Aaron Sorkin (“The Social Network”) - Sorkin took his knack for sharp dialogue, most commonly evidenced on television’s “The West Wing,” and successfully applied it to the new media generation. Randy: ‘The Social Network’ Again, not my choice, but my guess is that The Social Network is the Academy’s favorite “Adapted Screenplay.” Stan: ‘The Social Network’ - Screenplay writer Aaron Sorkin delivered a fast paced, crackling story that moves at a delightfully dizzying speed from start to finish. Best Original Screenplay:

February 24th, 2011 - March 2nd, 2011

Joseph: ‘The Kids are All Right’ - Lisa Cholodenko and Stuart Blumberg’s high-concept plot meets simple story. What more can the Academy ask for? Lesbians? Oh, it has got those, too! Randy: ‘Inception’ - If you could follow and actually understand what happened in Inception, you should win the award that it will take. Stan: ‘Inception’ - Screenplay writer/director Christopher Nolan created a truly original yet emotionally charged psychological concept on paper, and aptly transformed it into a visual ‘tour-de-force’ presentation as director.

Harkins Exclusives! At the Camelview 5 Brothers’ destinies collide in ‘Outside the Law’ By Joseph J. Airdo After losing their family home, three brothers are scattered across the globe in this Algerian import, which is nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at this weekend’s Academy Awards. One brother joins the French army fighting in Indochina; another becomes a leader of the Algerian independence movement; and the last moves to Paris to make his fortune in the shady clubs and boxing halls of Pigalle. Gradually, their interconnecting destinies reunite them in the French capital, where freedom is a battle to be fought and won. Read Joseph J.

BEER! SECTION

BEER! YOUR ARIZONA BEER WEEK ‘MIDWEEK REPORT’ Here we are already mid-way through Arizona Beer Week. Is everybody still standing? Hello, anybody? Bueller?? Anyway, I know you are all still out there, and in case you weren’t certain, we still have a few more days of fun and excitement left. Let’s recap the first couple of days of Arizona Beer Week and take a look at what might be exciting to catch on the last couple of days. Great Divide snuck in under the radar on Friday with an unofficial first event of Beer Week held at Whole Foods Chandler. Tannea who was all over town got the ball rolling with a nice mellow tasting just to prepare everybody for the official Day 1. That day started with several breakfast events

February 24th, 2011 - March 2nd, 2011

Follow us on and www.worldclassbeverages.com The High-End Beer Division of Crescent Crown” to get the day started on the right foot. Sun Up’s limited offering of Hefeweizen Pancakes, Breakfast Sandwich or Huevos Rancheros was a winning combination and the closest place to Steele Indian School Park, sight of the Arizona Brewers Guild Strong Beer Festival. While the Guild couldn’t control the weather, they did a great job on everything else. Everything was on time, the band was great, there were plenty of food options and an amazing amount of great beer. One of the highlights was VOLTRON, a blend of Imperial Red Ales made by Papago Brewing, SanTan Brewing, Sonoran Brewing, Sun Up Brewing and Tucson’s Thunder Canyon. What was even more impressive was that all five of those breweries were lined up allowing you to sample the component beers of VOLTRON before trying the

blend itself. Other highlight beers included Breckenridge TWENTY, their twentieth anniversary beer which was a whiskey barrel aged version of the 471 Extra ESB. Ska had Dementia, a barrel aged version of Euphoria Pale Ale. Their were also barrel aged offerings from Moylan’s (Barleywine and Grand Cru), Left Hand (Wake Up Dead In A Barrel), Lost Coast (an Imperial Stout) and Crispin (Desert Noir, an unfiltered apple cider with agave nectar and prickly pear aged in a barrel). Oak was not the only flavor available as Anderson Valley showed up with both Brother David’s Triple and Imperial IPA, The Bruery had Mischief pouring, Great Divide had their brand new Grand Cru along with Smoked Baltic Porter, Old Ruffian and Hercules. Global Beer Network was a big hit with new offerings Petrus Aged Pale and Troubadour Magma to put alongside classics Piraat and

AZWeeklyMagazine.com

Gulden Draak. We also saw great beer from Shmaltz, Redstone, New Belgium and many more. After Strong Beer was over, many folks headed over to TT Roadhouse for an after party featuring Big Sky. At the end of the day it was clear that Arizona Beer Week was ahead of everybody else one to zero. It was looking like a shutout might happen. Sunday was a little more mellow, but full of events. A bike ride in the wet remnants of Saturday included four bars featuring Ska and SanTan products followed by an American Homebrewers Association membership rally at SanTan, while the bike ride was going on in Chandler, a little further north in Tempe, Boulders on Broadway was putting on their own mini-festival.

...continued from Page 22 Ballast Point, Great Divide, Breckenridge and Anderson Valley poured several great products while attendees could sample in a more relaxed atmosphere. There were also promotions around town for Shmaltz, Left Hand and Global Beer Network, and the big event of the evening a mead dinner at Trader Vic’s. With the incredible food of Chef Justin Pfeilsticker along with Redstone’s Meads, this event was a major hit. Add in the attendance of Chairman of the Mead, David Myers and the event was even better. Deadlines prohibit us from including additional recaps but safe to say there was enough going on that everybody who wanted to, found something fun to do. So what’s left for Arizona Beer Week? Well if you are reading this on Wednesday night, or more likely Thursday, you still have plenty of time to dive in and enjoy yourself. Thursday night you can go bar hopping with Tebo from Breckenridge as the man known as the Mayor of LoDo starts his evening at Carlos O’Briens in Phoenix, and then hits new beer hotspot 13 Northe followed by The Garage and finishing up at Moto. There are promotional events and tastings from Lost Coast, Ballast Point, Anderson Valley, Artisanal Imports, Left Hand and Big Sky along with no less than four beer dinners. Join Marty from Bell’s as he offers up several rare beers at Atlas Bistro, or enjoy the food of Taggia during the first Arizona Girls Pint Out co-ed event, a Strong Beer Dinner to benefit Beer For Brains Foundation, an Alaskan dinner at Talking Stick Resort or local favorites Sonoran Brewing at T. Cooks. Plenty of Thursday night options, oh and Taste of Tops has a Local Tap Takeover event where all 24 taps will be devoted to local beers. Taste of Tops has an extension of premise permit for this event so there will be plenty of room.

Friday features some of the best events of the week. Flanny’s is offering a beer blends experience with SanTan and Left Hand, Breckenridge will be at Whole Foods Chandler, Bell’s will be at Sun Devil with some special beers and Don from Big Sky will be hosting a party at Mellow Mushroom. Some of the truly special events include and Alaskan Smoked Porter Verti-

cal Tasting at Taste of Tops, several vintages will be featured; the Big IPA event at Moto which will offer Ballast Point Tongue Buckler, Double Dorado and Sculpin, along with Moylan’s Hopsickle, Bell’s Hopslam and Redstone Nectar of the Hops. Papago Brewing has their Night of the Barrels featuring more than 10 barrel aged goodies from a variety of breweries. Finally, one of the showstopper events of Beer Week is The Epicuriad. Being put on by The Beer For Brains Foundation at Firesky Resort, this is a one of a kind event. Local food, local beer and local wine all share center stage as 10 Arizona chefs including Beau MacMillan and Aaron May attempt to create the best dish possible to match with an Arizona Beer and an Arizona Wine that they have been assigned. The public gets to decide which chef did the best job and which pairings overall were better, beer or wine. Only forty or so spots remained for this event as of Sunday, so get your tickets soon. Saturday is the last official day of Beer Week and it will offer a smaller beer festival featuring only local beers down at Barrio Brewing in Tucson. In the Phoenix market, look for the week to wind down with a Bell’s event at Hungry Monk and a Left Hand Tasting at Handlebar Pub and Grille in Apache Junction. Sunday will be a final event featuring another bike pub crawl, this time in Tempe, starting at Tavern on Mill and heading to Boulders on Broadway followed by Taste of Tops and ending at Crave. The other thing that gets overlooked is accounts featuring specials all week long. Plenty of time to take advantage of those events including a Beer and Burger special at Original Wineburger, a Beer Pairing special at The Garage, Beer and Food pairings at Rico’s at the Squaw Peak Hilton and Food and Beer pairing specials at Fat Willy’s located in the East Valley. Fat Willy’s, in case you haven’t checked it out yet is slowly becoming a craft beer destination in the East Valley. Known for their great food, a notch or two above your typical sports bar fare, they have added several great local beers in both package and draft formats. Check them out at any of their Mesa locations, including 1762 Greenfield, 2622 E. University and 9937 E. Baseline.

SanTan Brewing Company Unveils Mixed 12-Packs of Craft Beer in Cans The SanTan Brewing Company of Chandler announced that four of its award-winning craft beers – Hopshock IPA, HefeWeizen Wheat, Devil’s Ale and Epicenter Amber Ale – will be sold in a new variety 12-pack (cans). Since their release in Summer 2010, the canned SanTan brews have been extremely popular with beer aficionados. The new SanTan mixed 12-packs will be available year-round at select retail locations serviced by Crescent Crown Distributing. Distribution is expected to expand throughout the year. SanTan HopShock IPA (India

Pale Ale) is a West Coast Ale with an intense bitterness derived from the distinct citrus/pine character of Pacific Northwest hops. A dry, crisp malt character and aggressive alcohol make this IPA a Hop-Heads passion. IPAs pair well with spicy foods.

SanTan Devil’s Pale Ale is deep golden-maroon in color with a light citrusy hop flavor balanced with a firm caramel malt character. Pale ales go great with burgers and sandwiches. SanTan Epicenter Amber Ale features a deep garnet amber hue with

Lewis Black, one of the most internationally popular and hilarious comedians of today has made his way to our very own Orpheum Theater in Downtown Phoenix. As always Lewis will be ranting and raving about all things politics, religion, America, our daily lives and the overall stupidity of people and events. This guy is a good dose of truth said with much needed sarcasm, anger and brutal honesty all woven in with expressive body language and great comedic timing. As with any comedian, if you are unfamiliar then go ahead and utilize youtube. Lewis Black promises to be a show not to be missed so let’s break open that piggy bank and laugh at the absurdity of $20. 602-229-1265 our world. 8pm. Tickets $50-$75 www. lewisblack.com

Great AZ Beer Festival Pub Flosstradamus at BarSmith Crawl Sat 26th If you had read last week’s column of Fri 25th One of my favorite new places to hit up late night is BarSmith Downtown. Two floors with a lounge/club downstairs and a rooftop bar and dance floor usually blasting a different set from the speakers upstairs. What’s great about this place is the feel of it all, you don’t have the pretentiousness and “be seen” vibe of Old Town yet it’s not flip flops and college kids like in Tempe. Standing all on its own, there is more of an underground feel here, who knows maybe it’s the Downtown skyscrapers that make me forget I’m in AZ or maybe it’s the crowd who a lot of the times is there for the music, to dance and get it out of their systems. This Friday is the perfect time to checkout out BarSmith as they will be host to DJ Duo Flosstradamus. Chicago Djs J2k and Autobot make up this music machine that’s created quite a name for themselves nation-wide performing at the Coachella Music Festival, Pitchfork Music Festival, Lollapalooza and South by Southwest. From their fans perspective, “you don’t go to see Flosstradamus, you go to dance to Flosstradamus.” Known for getting any crowd into a dance frenzy, the duo spins electro rock and has the talent to mix in popular and sometimes forgotten dance floor hits. Tickets

glorious events, then you would remember me mentioning the onset of the Great Arizona Beer Festival. The celebration was kicked off last weekend with much success and alcohol, and really don’t the two go hand-in-hand....kind of. This weekend we continue with our advances and this time get ready to partake in the 3d annual Great AZ Beer Festival Pub Crawl. The location is Downtown Tempe where 4 bars have been given the responsibility to host our good time. This year there is no need for the light rail as we are in walking distance and therefore, there is no chance for the stragglers to be left behind. What you should keep in mind about this pub crawl vs any other, is that it is put on by those serious about beer as more than just a “drink” but an art form of sorts. Therefore, the drink specials will not be dollar Bud lights but Brews you want to sample not just chug down. First stop will be Dave’s Electric Brew Pub followed by Gordon Biersch Brewery, Canteen Modern Tequila Bar and lastly Robbie Fox’s Public House. Tickets are $10 and sell out fast! 2pm-6pm www.azbeer.com/tempe

Got a hot event? Grand opening? Cool new promotion? Undiscovered gem? Please write to Maria at Nightowl@azweeklymagazine.com to possibly be featured here each week. Please include pictures when possible.

Sometimes simple is better. Take for instance the Super bowl advertisements, watching these big productions called commercials with hi-tech special effects, big name actors and a budget of millions just didn’t do it for me. I know I’m going to sound like your grandfather by saying back in the day they had it right... but back in the day they had it right!

You’re probably wondering where I’m going with this but sometimes the message is worth millions and the millions sometimes don’t have a message.

cameras and a coca cola. The image of a little kid seeing his sports hero after the big game hurt and exhausted and wanting to pick his hero’s spirits up by giving him a coca cola. As the player, Mean Joe Green reluctantly takes the coca cola from the young man and starts drinking, the little kid turns around and says goodbye. By the time the kid could leave, the player, Mean Joe Green finishes the coca cola, calls out to the kid and tosses his jersey to him and you could see the boy smile and his eyes light up.

In the case of your skin, food and drinks can dramatically impact whether your skin glows or looks dull. Here are some healthy ways to spruce up your skin through food. ●● Juice it up! Juice provides a plethora of vitamins and minerals to the epidermis. Stick to all-natural fruit and vegetable juices. ●● Be a free radical! Green teas contain high amounts of
