FILM! Stan Robinson,

Randy Montgomery, AZ Weekly Film Critic

Bet You Didn’t Know! by Stan Robinson

Silver Screen Scoop! By Joseph J. Airdo Warner Bros. Pictures has hired a pair of screenwriters to pen a remake of the 1992 hit “The Bodyguard.” This new version will have the titular male lead as a former Iraqi war veteran. Meanwhile, MGM is moving forward with plans to remake several of its 80’s projects, including “Robocop,” “Mr. Mom,” “The Idolmaker” and “Poltergeist.” Be among the first to get the latest ‘scoop’ from Joseph J. Airdo at Examiner. com

Teresa Palmer Lives the 80’s, Loves the Music By Randy Montgomery

When the ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ was released in 1975, it was a commercial flop. The producers then decided to screen it only at midnight shows. It became a cult movie and for a long time held the record for continuous running, it grossed more than $200 million. It also is one of the world’s most staged productions!

DVD Watch!


The Walt Disney Studios adds the classic movie ‘Bambi’ to its Diamond Collection! The 2-Disc Disney Combo Pack includes a Blu-ray & DVD disc, included is ‘The Making of the Film’, deleted scenes, along with family games and activities for the young and old! For more on other DVD & Bluray releases visit March 3rd, 2011 - March 9th, 2011

Topher Grace’s long-sought after crush in Take Me Home Tonight is Tori Fredreking, played by Teresa Palmer. If Palmer looks familiar, she should. The Australian born actress is currently starring in the sci-fi action flick I Am Number 4. Set in the late 80’s, Take Me Home Tonight gave Palmer a unique opportunity. “I was born in 1986. I had to live vicariously through the movie since I didn’t get to experience the 80’s.” She may not have been around when many of the songs featured in the film were at the top of the charts, but Palmer is a fan nonetheless. “The music is incredible in the film. Topher and his (writer/producer) partner Gordon wrote out a list of songs they wanted in the movie before we started filming. Ninety percent of that list ended up in the film.” Music is a huge part of this raucous, wildly funny and romantic comedy. One song you won’t hear is the song that inspired the title. The Eddie Money song was left out of the film. “We knew that we would be playing that song so many times throughout the trailer, so we felt the public would be sick of it by the time they got around to seeing the actual movie,” says the actress.

Kim Carnes’ Bette Davis Eyes, a favorite song of Palmer’s from the 80’s made it into the movie. “I was lucky enough to have that as my slow motion intro into the party scene.” Another favorite song and scene, NWA’s Straight out of Compton, which provides the musical background for a pivotal moment in the script. The song choices will make children of the 80’s and fans of the time period long for a time gone by. Though the film is set in the iconic decade, the filmmakers and crew had a specific goal in mind, as Palmer explains, “We didn’t want to spoof the 80’s at all. We wanted it to feel like a genuine film that was made in 1988.” Awkwardness in school certainly isn’t tied to a decade or grade. Grace’s character was too shy and felt unworthy of his crush’s attention in high school. Many of us can relate to his character’s dilemma. Palmer shares a similar story. “In primary school I did not understand that wearing socks with sandals was not a cool thing. I admit that I was very much the outcast in primary school. I had a crush. I was absolutely not popular enough to get near him. When I turned 14, he ended up being my very first kiss. Suddenly he asked me out on a date. We went to the skate park and rode our skateboards.” While set in Los Angeles, Take Me Home Tonight was shot in and around Phoenix. Look for Metrocenter Mall, the iconic Courtesy Chevrolet sign in the background of an outside shot and Papago Plaza at Scottsdale and McDowell in the background. “Arizona and Phoenix embraced us a crew,” says Palmer. “We had an amazing group of extras that came in day in and day out. We would start our days at 6am and finish at 6pm. They were so enthusiastic. We got along very well with everyone. We ended up partying with the extras. They would come out with us on the weekends. We were blessed to shoot here.”

‘Marwencol’ ~ His cure is his fantasies Review by Stan Robinson Fresh off its win last week of an Independent Spirit Award, this true story documentary by director Jeff Malmberg presents the amazing story of Mark Hogancamp, who was the victim of a vicious attack that left him brain-damaged and virtually penniless. After numerous visits with a therapist that seemed to have no effect, Mark creates his own way of coping with his trauma, he builds ‘Marwencol’, a 1/6th scale World War II-era town he creates in his backyard. In his town he incorporates friends, relatives, and neighbors with dolls and toy replicas for his town, which he controls and lives out his fantasy stories. ‘Marwencol’ is a very moving film and a testament to the spirit of Mark Hogancamp to live life on his terms in spite of the ‘cards’ life has dealt him in his later years. Directed by Jeff Malmberg. The Cinema Guild release. Runtime-83 minutes. It’s now playing exclusively at Film Bar in downtown Phoenix, AZ

‘The Over the Hill Band’ ~ Starting again has no age limits Review by Stan Robinson Perhaps I’m a bit biased because at 62 in 2008, I set out in a direction because of an injury, this story touched my heart. After the death of her husband, Claire (Marilou Mermans) who’s 70 years old decides to reconnect with her estranged son, a R&B musician (Jan Van Looveren) who hasn’t faired very well through the years. Her plan, restart the girl group she used to sing in with two of her friends from the old days. Her son agrees under one condition: the band has to play ‘his’ music. Continued on Page 11...

Starring Barbara Sarafian, Greg Timmermans, Jurgen Delnaet, Lucas van den Eijnde, Marilou Mermans, François Beukelaers, Robrecht Vanden, and Jan Van Looveren. Directed by Geoffrey Enthoven. Written by Jean-Claude Van Rijckeghem & Chris Craps. NeoClassics Films release. Runtime-93 minutes.

Reviewers’ Roundup: ‘Take Me Home Tonight’ An aimless college graduate (Topher Grace) pursues his dream girl (Teresa Palmer) at a wild Labor Day weekend party. He, his sister (Anna Faris) and their best friend (Dan Fogler) struggle with their burgeoning adulthood over the course of the night. (R – 97 minutes) 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. Joseph J. Airdo ( “Director Michael Dowse resurrects the 80s teen movie genre to a tubular tee, poking playful fun at it as well as wholly embracing it. This gnarly motion picture is funny, touching and totally rad, with special thanks to an awesome cast. The four fantastic leads are trumped only by an endless list of stellar supporting players and cameos.” Grade: B Randy Montgomery (AZ Weekly): Take Me Home Tonight is a wildly fun and raucous comedy that will make anyone that grew up in the 80’s or a fan of the iconic decade nostalgic. The inside Southern California jokes made me chuckle. I miss gangsta rap, Sweatin’ to the Oldies, the music and shoulder pads on aqua-netted young women even more now than ever. Grade: A

Stan Robinson ( “Take Me Home Tonight” works for me for one primary reason, actor Dan Foglar! The ensemble cast delivers an adult themed comedic look at serious life issues, while I connected with Dan Foglar’s character who’s life of excessiveness was harboring a heart of gold for his friends.” Grade: B+

Reviewers’ Roundup: ‘Rango’ In the grip of an identity crisis, a sheltered chameleon (Johnny Depp) accidentally winds up as the sheriff of a frontier town. (PG – 107 minutes) 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 ( With the western genre as one of the staples of movies throughout the years, ‘Rango’, though an animated film, has all the drama, humor, and poignancy of a western. Its clever interweaving of the Clint Eastwood ‘Fist Full of Dollars’ themes and the 1974 drama ‘Chinatown’ with the ‘controlling factor’ theme, is an exceptional achievement! Grade: AJoseph J. Airdo ( “‘Rango’ works as both a satire on the Western genre and as a legitimate Western in and of itself. In fact, it is probably one of the best Westerns to be released in quite a few years. It is, without a doubt, also one of the most uniquely artistic pieces of animated entertainment... period! The only caveat is that younger audiences may not enjoy it enough – or at least fully appreciating it.” Grade: A

alcholic beverages. The Film Bar, located at 815 N. 2nd Street, just north of downtown Phoenix at 2nd Street & McKinley streets, is film programmed by Steve Weiss who many know from those rare gems he presents as part of his ‘No Festival Required’ showings. The films presented are the independent, foreign, cult, and classic films with a very cozy bar setting serving espresso, beer, and wines. Opening Thursday March 3rd is the true story documentary ‘Marwecol’ which won an Independent Spirit Award last week.

FRANCESCA WOLFSOHN INVESTMENT ADVISOR 480~822~8176 516~395~3299 IF you could double your money every year for 20 years in a row, just one dollar would turn into more than one million; $1,048,576.00. More realistically, if you invested your money at 8% from age 25 to age 65, just $3,900 per year would turn into more than one million ($1,010,320). That means it only takes about $325 a month to become a millionaire.

As a child I didn’t understand why my dad put all of his quarters in jars. Then I grew up. Like the contractor with the lumber for that new extension sitting in his backyard or the Accountant whose own taxes go on extension I have been the investment advisor who didn’t save her change.

I am a child of, in my opinion the most deservedly respected generation. The children of the Depression Era had a much greater appreciation for the value of a buck and the old school work ethic. I was brought up and shown by example how to be economically, socially and environmentally responsible and yet I quite easily learned the ways of excess. Now after 30 years of living for today, having experienced my own generations ups and downs, I for the past 5 years every $ I spent I put the change away. I still give in excess to those who need I just don’t waste on all of those “I wants”.

200 million people in China live on less than a dollar a day.

Agoraphobia is the fear of open space. Spiders have transparent blood. The only president to be shot by a woman was Gerald Ford.

Camels have three eyelids to protect themselves from blowing sand.

I found that each year I came up with just shy of an extra $5000.00 per year. You don’t miss it and it grows like Ivy. Now aside from this I do strongly recommend that for every $ earned a few pennies be put aside as well. A PENNY SAVED IS A PENNY EARNED. FOR A VETERAN INVESTMENT ADVISORS EXPERTISE

AND THERE YOU HAVE IT! That’s it, we’re done! The first Arizona Beer Week is officially in the books and by all accounts it was quite a success. By my count there were well over 165 events and more than 75 different locations involved. We saw a variety of different brewers, brewery reps and owners all over town from Goodyear to Apache Junction. From the unofficial start at Whole Foods Chandler on the Friday night before Strong Beer when Great Divide kicked off the festivities, to the final bicycle pub crawl in Tempe on the last Sunday, craft beer lovers in Arizona had a wonderful opportunity to sample beers, pair beer and food, meet people, sample beers, experience rare beers and, oh yes, sample beers. Let’s take a look at a couple of highlights. Saturday morning brought kegs and eggs events to several places as a preliminary event to the Strong Beer Festival. This became especially important considering a little extra nourishment sure came

March 3rd, 2011 - March 9th, 2011

Follow us on and The High-End Beer Division of Crescent Crown” in handy when dealing with the weather at the Strong Beer Festival. There was plenty of rain and wind, and more than enough beer to go around at Steele Indian School Park on Saturday as approximately 2800 people braved the harsh Arizona winter to sip on some of the most outstanding beers to ever grace a festival in the state. There were beers of all varieties including one off specialties, barrel aged ciders that were meant to be one off and took on a life of their own, rare beers that never saw the light of day in our state before and may never do so again, and even a couple of old favorites thrown in so that festival goers could take a minute to reset their palates. We discussed some early highlights last week, but we’ll touch on them again. Sunday brought three great events including Boulders on Broadway’s Beer Festival where about 30 different beers were offered to a much smaller group of people…and this was indoors. At about the same time, SanTan Brewing

and Ska Brewing hosted a pub crawl on bicycles. Over 125 people turned out for this event which hit four stops where each rider enjoyed a beer from one of the two breweries. Sunday night saw Redstone and Trader Vic’s combine on a unique event, a mead dinner. Various varieties of Redstone’s fine honey wine were paired with dishes from the kitchen of Chef Justin Pfeilsticker and each of them was superb. Monday was the quietest day of the week, but the Alaskan Brewing Beer Dinner at the Hilton in Chandler was a nice way to end the first day of the work week. Sampling and promotional events at Whole Foods, BevMo, Buffalo Wild Wings and TT Roadhouse also helped ease away Monday’s blues.

other key event was a tasting of the entire La Trappe lineup at Lost Leaf Gallery in downtown Phoenix. This event was so solid that Sean Knoll of Artisanal Imports ended up staying well past the stated 9:00 pm end time to enjoy beers with several of the many folks who showed up. Sean also introduced Arizona to the first of the La Trappe barrel program beers. This time we sampled Batch 3 which was La Trappe Quadrupel aged in Port and Sherry barrels. Other fun events included a Global Imports tasting where Troubadour Magma was a big hit along with Petrus Aged Pale…both on draft. The night kept delivering with events at Hungry Monk and a Left Hand Brewing Beer Dinner at La Bocca.

Tuesday featured two really well attended events including CANdemonium at Papago featuring canned beer from Ska, Big Sky and Breckenridge. There were also prizes available for folks that returned their cans to the front and crushed them for proper recycling. The

Wednesday night featured one of the pre-week picks for best event of the week, the Flemish Sour Blending Seminar at Whole Foods Chandler. A wonderful event it was. Sean from Artisanal was on

...continued from Page 14 hand to discuss the process of blending Flemish Sours and then allowed the attendees to sample various blends of Flemish Sour including 100% young beer and 100% aged beer. He also had a little for the Barrel Aged La Trappe Quad and a not yet available in Arizona Belgian Blonde from Omer. Sours were the order of the night as Papago offered rare beers from New Belgium, each of which had a sour component to them. La Folie, Trans-Atlantique Kriek, Imperial Berliner Weisse and the collaboration with Allagash, Vrienden were all available… and all delicious. Look for sour beers to be one of the next hot trends in the beer world, as evidenced by the success of these two events. But it didn’t end there, no less than three beer dinners were going on including one at Atlas Bistro featuring a vegetarian menu paired with Papago’s beers. Sun Up Brewing hosted the first of three Girls Pint Out events along with Crispin and just about every major beer bar in the Valley had an event going on, including a Breckenridge Tasting, followed by Global Imports at Handlebar Pub, Lost Coast at Sun Devil Liquors, and Ballast Point at Whole Foods on Mayo Boulevard. Thursday was another evening of deci-

sions featuring promotional events all over town including a Drink Local sampling at AJ’s Fine Foods on Lincoln, Alaskan at Handlebar Pub, Left Hand at Whole Foods Chandler and Ballast Point at Chop N Wok. But the winners for the night included the Bell’s Beer Dinner at Atlas Bistro. Marty Compton from Bell’s was, as always, entertaining and informative and the food and beer pairings just got better and better. Girls Pint Out also offered a beer dinner at Taggia featuring all strong beers. Nothing less than 8% hit the table for this spectacular. But the event that everyone was waiting for did not disappoint. Taste of Tops had a day long Local Tap Takeover as all 24 of their taps were switched over to beers from Arizona breweries. Coupled with an extension permit which enabled owner Greg Eccles to take over the alleyway out back, there was more than enough beer and more than enough space for everybody. The local brewers, realizing that it was their time to shine alongside their brethren, didn’t just send their usual. There were special offerings from every brewery in attendance. The only regret is that there wasn’t enough time to sample everything. Friday was full of big events…again too many to choose from and not miss out on

something spectacular. But we tried anyway. You could almost make it all work if you started your evening out at Moto at 4:00 for Big IPA Night. With offerings from Ballast Point, Bell’s, Moylan’s, Redstone and more, this was the place for hop heads. After sampling a few there, you could then slip down to Sun Up Brewing for a taste of their Barrel Aged Imperial Cherry Vanilla Stout…on cask. Not much time to linger over another of their fine beers. Next stop created a real decision. Do you head to Papago for their Roll Out the Barrel event, featuring a dozen or so barrel aged beers, or do you head down to Taste of Tops for the Alaskan Smoked Porter Vertical tasting featuring five different vintages? Tough call, but either way you couldn’t lose. That all geared up to what proved to be the culinary event of the week, The Epicuriad. Hosted by the Beer For Brains Foundation, this event was everything it was expected to be. Food from some of the best chefs in the state, fine wines and outstanding beers. Chef Beau MacMillan won first prize for best pairing with food and wine, but it was a close contest, as each entry was spectacular. Music from Joe Myers along with some amazing silent auction prizes rounded out the event.

Saturday was the day that all the local breweries headed to the Peublo Winterfest in Tucson. Locally things were quiet as events were minimal. Bell’s had a nice event at Hungry Monk and Left Hand made an appearance at Handlebar Pub, but all in all, people were in recovery mode. Sunday was the finish to the week with a Tempe bicycle pub crawl highlighting Tavern on Mill, Taste of Tops, Crave and Boulders on Broadway. It was a nice way to wind down from the week. The week was amazing with special recognition to local breweries Sun Up, SanTan and Four Peaks for having the largest number of events for a brewery; Whole Foods Chandler for hosting the largest number of events; Breckenridge and Alaskan for being the out of state breweries with the most events and Doug Odell for reminding us that craft beer is a community as he made visits to many events not involving his brewery.

For those of you that still haven’t had enough, March 5th is the Great Arizona Beer Festival at Tempe Town Lake. It’s only one day this year so make your plans to attend now. See you there!

The BEST Happy Hour

March 3rd, 2011 - March 9th, 2011



THE CACTUS LEAGUE: A Look Back at History From 1972-1974, the Swingin’ A’s led by legendary ballplayers Reggie Jackson, Rollie Fingers and Catfish Hunter won three straight World Series, becoming the very first Cactus League team to win the championship since the 1954 Giants. To date, no other team has won three world titles in a row since the A’s great feat. For nearly a decade the Cactus League consisted of only eight teams: The Angels trained in Mesa, playing home games the last two weeks of Spring Training in Palm Springs; the Cubs reunited in Mesa; the Indians trained in Tucson; the Brewers were in Chandler; the A’s in Phoenix; the Padres in Yuma; the Giants in Scottsdale; and the Mariners in Tempe. The Cactus League began to grow and officially take shape in the late 1980’s as new ballparks were erected in Peoria, where the Mariners and Padres entered a cooperative effort, and in Mesa, where the Cubs are guaranteed to remain for another generation. Hi Corbett Field was refurbished for the Colorado Rockies. And, in the spring of 1998, brand new Maryvale Baseball Park became the home of the Brewers while brand new Tucson Electric Park became the home of the Arizona Diamondbacks and Chicago White Sox. In 2003, the Kansas City Royals and Texas Rangers entered a cooperative effort to share a facility in the city of Surprise. With these additions, Arizona’s spring training circuit reached a new high water mark with twelve teams playing in nine ballparks across the state. But the state is not satisfied to rest on its laurels. State government and local communities are committed March 3rd, 2011 - March 9th, 2011

to securing Cactus League baseball as one of Arizona’s major attractions for decades to come.

Mexico, South Africa and Asia. The U.S. team will be led by fan-favorite’s Derek Jeter, Chipper Jones and Dustin Pedroia

Cactus League Notables

Florida’s Grapefruit League has been saddled with the problems of extensive travel, wet weather and older facilities. Only the Diamondbacks and Rockies, who train in Tucson, present a lengthy drive. The 12 Valley teams are all within about an hour of each other.

The White Sox relocated from Tucson to Camelback Ranch Glendale this spring, joining the newly arrived Los Angeles Dodgers at the new $80 million baseball complex off West Camelback Road. Goodyear has brought the Cleveland Indians back to Arizona after a 16-year hiatus in Florida’s Grapefruit League. Arizona has swamped Florida’s 16-team spring league the past 11 years, luring five teams to the Cactus League, with No. 6, the Cincinnati Reds, coming next year to share the Goodyear ballpark. Good weather, short travel times and hundreds of millions of dollars in new baseball facilities have paid dividends for the Cactus League, which also added the expansion Colorado Rockies and Diamondbacks in the 1990s. The Dodgers and Indians will bring some impressive new stars to the Cactus League, including reigning American League Cy Young winner Cliff Lee from Cleveland, Andre Ethier and possibly Manny Ramirez from Los Angeles. Cactus League Attendance is likely to top last year’s record of 1.3 million despite economic and travel turmoil. Valley baseball fans will also have a chance to see nearly two dozen World Baseball Classic exhibition games in the Cactus League stadiums in early March. That includes teams from Australia,

Good seats at spring games are far cheaper than for regular-season games, and the weather is better. There will be a much greater availability of games and tickets, even on weekends when sellouts in past years often limited options for seeing a game. Now there will be as many as seven games in the Valley a day.

Attendance on the Rise

Arizona’s Cactus League attracted a record 1.32 million fans last spring. League officials expect to top that with three new teams in the Valley, two of them from Florida’s Grapefruit League, and a 37 percent increase in games. Here are last season’s top five Arizona teams by attendance and a look at how the new arrivals did last year:

1. Chicago Cubs: 181,280. 2. San Francisco Giants: 149,935. 3. Seattle Mariners: 135,146. 4. Los Angeles Angels: 118,191. 5. Diamondbacks: 110,894.

Chicago White Sox: 87,301(in Tucson). Cleveland Indians: 87,301(in Winter Haven, Fla.). Los Angeles Dodgers: 72,649 (in Vero Beach, Fla.).

A BRAND NEW HOME FOR THE HOMETOWN TEAM Diamondbacks Welcome New Spring Home with Open Arms

This Spring, things will be plenty enticing for players and fans of the Arizona Diamondbacks. After many years down in Tucson, 2011 marks the opening of Salt River Fields at Talking Stick, the new complex which the team will be sharing with the Colorado Rockies over in Scottsdale. Clearly one of the finest parks in the Cactus League, the Diamondbacks and Rockies new home has more to offer than even meets the eyes as two million-plus square feet of sod is set to see plenty of baseball action. There are more than a dozen baseball fields that are part of the complex, as well as standalone batting cages, pitching alleys and an agility field which is part natural grass, part Astroturf. One of the full-size fields has been constructed to have the same dimensions as Chase Field, while another is a mirror image of the Salt River stadium. Need more? How about a little of what it took to make this park tick…. Clearly, it’s good to be home. 14,500 tons of decomposed granite

Players and Fans Unite as Arizona Football is Back with a Vengeance!

The Arizona Rattlers are hungry for action and eager to get the 2011 season underway! With returning quarterback Nick Davila leading the way, the team is set to kick the season off right with their home opener against the Jacksonville Sharks just around the corner. As always, the Rattler squad is looking for a loud and fired up home crowd to cheer them on during every hard-hitting, high action play.


These Rattlers are very fan-friendly and believe in autographs after the game. Young fans are able to get acquainted with star players on the team, given time to talk, connect and exchange autographs after games. The hometown feel that comes with attending a Rattlers game is like no other to say the least. March 3rd, 2011 - March 9th, 2011

The Rattlers believe in teamwork, and it’s easy for spectators and fans to see the high levels of teamwork and dedication that go into each adrenaline pumping game. These guys live, love, eat, breath and sleep football - and they want you to be their 9th man, present and ready to add to the overall football experience! Hard hits and fast-paced action is the name of the Rattler’s game. Arena football differs from college or NFL football in that it’s played indoors on a much smaller field and there’s not a single bad seat in the house. The furthest seats from the Rattlers field are still much closer than the very best seats at an NFL game. With seats so close to the action, fans feel as if they are in the game themselves. This kind of close

and personal access to all the hard hits and fast action provides a unique football experience that is clearly second to none. And at a Rattlers game, the entertainment is both on the field and the sidelines as well. Come watch the players dominate their opponent while the talented Sidewinder’s squad entertains throughout the game! In short, the Arizona Rattlers provide the very best in affordable family fun! With tickets starting at just $17 for a single game, as well as $10 per game for season tickets, the Rattlers are by far one of the most enjoyable, and affordable sports teams in town! Most importantly, the Rattlers want YOU to believe in THEM, which is why providing fans with great, affordable seats to one of the highest action

sports experiences in the Valley is the very name of their game. These Rattlers are truly devoted to achieving your absolute loyalty - and are exactly the type of athletes that deserve every ounce of hometown support. Every player believes in and understands the importance of home field advantage - and the tremendous impact the fans have on the outcome of every game. This team needs and believes in your support, so head on out with family and friends for a oneof-a-kind, action-packed event like no other. Come show this talented Rattlers team just how much you believe in them! The Season opens March 12th... Be There!

D’Arcy McGee’s Irish Pub in Tempe to Celebrate St. Patty’s Day in Style March 17th festivities at Tempe Marketplace include traditional celebration and Official Flogging Molly After-Party D’Arcy McGee’s, a premium Irish pub/ restaurant in Tempe Marketplace, will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in style on Thursday, March 17, 2011, beginning at 5 p.m. and continuing until 2 a.m. The restaurant and pub has received a special use permit from Tempe Marketplace for a fenced party area in the parking lot adjacent to the restaurant.   D’Arcy McGee’s will celebrate the Valley’s best ode to the Irish with live entertainment from local bands, Irish dancers, bagpipers, and themed games and festivities for all to enjoy. Live music will be performed by Green Flag Band (5 p.m. to 8 p.m.), an Athens, Georgia-based acoustic music ensemble that stays close to the heart of traditional Irish music, and Shallow Water (9 p.m. to 1 a.m.), a Phoenix-

based Pop/Punk Rock/Ska band named New Times’ Readers Choice “Best Local Band.” D’Arcy McGee’s is also the “Official After Party of Flogging Molly,” the popular Irish-American Celtic punk band. Flogging Molly is appearing at Tempe Beach Park on March 17 until 9:30 p.m. The after party at D’Arcy McGee’s runs from 10 p.m. until midnight. Concert goers will receive free admission to D’Arcy McGee’s St. Patrick’s celebration. Tickets for D’Arcy McGee’s St. Patrick’s Day Party are $10 (presale and day-of). A special “Designated Driver” ticket is discounted to $5. Party goers can expect plenty of “craic” – the unique combination of great food, good cheer and fun times – as experienced in Ireland. And of course, green beer will be plentiful. “St. Patty’s Day is a very exciting event for us,” said D’Arcy McGee’s owner Mike Dizinno. “The enthusiasm and energy inside the restaurant and under the tents is something we look forward to all year.”

Downtown Phoenix will be throwing its own version of the infamous Mardi Gras. Come for the kick off parade at 7pm starting on 1st St. between Jefferson and Madison. Floats, dancers, and all things haywire will be making it down the 2 mile route. Afterwards, join your costumed friends at CityScape for the free festival. A beer garden will be good to hit up before you visit any fortune teller booths, because from what I hear, the future is always better when you have a buzz. Rock out to the Bad Cactus Band among others and get yourself ready for the Mardi Crawl. Trolleys will take each team to Seamus McCaffrey’s, Rose & Crown, Bar Smith, Coach&Willie’s and Ghost Lounge up until 1am. After all the beads have been thrown out and all the bad decisions made, head to Steve’s Greenhouse Grill for a recovery breakfast starting at 1am. Tickets for Mardi Crawl are $7 or $10 breakfast included.

TASTE Culinary Festival Sat March 5th

Come experience what Glendale has to offer as a culinary destination all its own. 30 purveyors and eateries will be beckoning you with samples of their most delicious tid-bits in Historic Downtown Glendale. Sure you may need to go for a 5 mile jog after but aren’t we all just trying to live in the moment anyway? Life is short and experiencing it through our senses is one of the joys of living it fully. Try out Le Chalet, a creperie and fondue restaurant or Satara, known for giving foodies a truly Thai experience, how about Haus Murphy’s, Az’s true German restaurant good enough to be featured on Food Network. Taste buds aside, our ears also get a treat as three jazz bands will be featured while the evening turns to night. You will hear


Big Daddy D and the Dynamites, a 5 piece jazz band who won the AZ Blues Showdown. Hear some rocking blues from the Carvin Jones Band and see why this band keeps getting awards like “Best Guitarist” and “Best Entertainer.” The Joe Costello Jazz Experience is an ever-changing Jazz ensemble known for their seasoned sound and the performance of jazz standards and funk&fusion. Treat yourself to a delicious night out. 5pm-9pm. Tickets $25 VIP $50

Mardi RA Sat March 5th

Ah yes Mardi Gras, the celebration of all things “party” has even made it to the far east...sort of. Ra Sushi in Mesa joins in on the fun and hands you a carnival mask to do the same. Come in for food specials like $4 Tootsy Maki rolls and $5 Spicy Sesame Wings and then stay for the continuing party. $3-$7 drink specials should get you in the mood to dance alongside the fire dancers- just keep in mind your martini does inflame quite nicely so keep a steady hand. The party will keep going till 1am with a guest DJ spinning dance worthy tracks and enough beads for you to reconsider wearing that cotton white bra. Let’s all theme it up for the celebration! 480-632-9500

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

Get silky, straight hair without 30 minutes in front of the mirror and a boatload of hair dry heat. Sound too good to be true? Well believe it! The highly-talked about, celebrity-endorsed Brazilian Blowout keeps hair shiny, straight and frizz-free for up to four months. Despite speculation that the product contains unsafe levels of formaldehyde, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) testing found that the product contains barely detectable amounts of the chemical. With thick, course and curly hair, the Brazilian Blowout has been my savor. My 45-minute blow dry has been reduced to 10 minutes. I also no longer have to worry about moisture and humidity. My hair is also smoother than ever. For girls with unruly locks, I highly recommend this revolutionary treatment. The Brazilian Blowout Keratin Treatment is different from the other Brazilian or Japanese straightening treatments. The Brazilian Blowout Keratin Treatment by “Cadiveu” does not use harsh chemicals like formaldehyde. Spa Fit AZ is pleased to offer Brazilian Blowouts by Cindi Fisher at En Chant e’ Salon Studios in Scottsdale. Cindi Fisher has spent over 20 years in the salon industry as a color specialist and stylist. Book your Brazilian Blowout with Cindi today at SpaFitAZ. com” March 3rd, 2011 - March 9th, 2011

Celebrating Ricky Nelson’s Legacy Matthew and Gunnar Nelson were barely past their 18th birthdays when their father, teen idol Ricky Nelson, was killed in a plane crash in 1985. Nelson had achieved success through his self-portrayal in the series The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, which revealed Nelson’s musical abilities and turned him into a teen idol. Matthew and Gunnar followed in their father’s footsteps, with a musical career that is entering its third decade, but Gunnar and Matthew have taken a slight detour recently. Playing to sold-out audiences, Ricky Nelson Remembered is the Nelson twins’ unique tribute to one of the most influential members of rock history – their dad. What started out as a fan request to play some of their father’s songs has blossomed into a multimedia event, described by Gunnar as a “high energy rock concert meets an A&E biography episode. We wanted to use the opportunity of the 25th anniversary to really jog people’s memories and put them in a place in time where, if they grew up with the Nelson family show, they felt ten feet tall and bullet proof, and if they didn’t, we would educate them as to why the music that is in their iPod actually sounds like it does.” This 90 minute show features Matthew and Gunnar performing Nelson’s greatest hits including “Hello Mary Lou”, “Travelin’ Man”, and “Garden Party”, along with footage pulled from 435 Ozzie and Harriet episodes, Behind the Music and countless interviews and biographies, this show includes interview footage from some of the people that Nelson influenced, like Paul McCartney, Fats Domino, Chris Isaak, and Chris Kristofferson. “It’s approached with integrity and sincerity from a couple of guys whose father was their best friend and you can feel that. This is nothing other than a really warm, loving, feeling, and respectful show.” Gunnar and Matthew perform one original song, “Just Once More”, which Gunnar explains, “is about appreciating the people you love while you still have them here. Some of the advice that Dad gave us was to be songwriters first and foremost and that’s what we take pride in doing. I think we’d be doing him a disservice if we didn’t at least do one song that we’d written from the heart” Ricky Nelson Remembered is being presented at the Mesa Arts Center, 1 E. Main St. in Mesa on Saturday March 5th at 7:30pm. Tickets can be purchased at www.messartslive. com or by calling (480) 644-6500.
