January 20 – March 24, 2012 Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, Stage 2 The eternally popular Late Nite Catechism comedies will return to Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts for a limited engagement from Jan. 20 to March 24. The original Late Nite Catechism will run on Friday evenings at 8 p.m. in Stage 2, and its sequel, Late Nite Catechism III: ’Til Death Do Us Part, will be performed on Saturdays at 8 p.m. Spontaneous, witty and fun, Late Nite Catechism is a highly interactive show starring Patti Hannon as tart-tongued Sister. Ruling her classroom with an iron fist, she teaches her students – who happen to be the audience – everything she knows about sins and saints while doling out rewards and reprimands with lightning speed. In Late Nite Catechism III: ’Til Death Do Us Part, Sister offers up even more, including the latest doctrine fresh

off the Web, some hilarious lessons about love and marriage and her own outrageous ‘newlywed’ game. Each Late Nite Catechism performance is unique and will appeal to people of all ages and faiths. Late Nite Catechism debuted at Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts in June 2000 and was an overnight sensation, eventually becoming the longest-running theatrical production in Arizona. Its other popular sequels have included Late Nite Catechism II: Sometimes We Feel Guilty Because We Are Guilty and Sister’s Christmas Catechism: The Mystery of the Magi’s Gold. Originally a Chicago actor, Hannon has performed the role of Sister in all of the Scottsdale productions. She was named “The Best Habit in Town” by Phoenix Magazine and earned an AriZoni Award for Late Nite’s longevity. Tickets are available for $39 online at www.ScottsdalePerformingArts. org or through Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts’ Patron Services Box Office at (480) 499-TKTS (8587).

Transporting you to a fantastic world with over-sized flowers, exotic animals and stunning imagery.


Only a few days remain if you wish to catch the delightful award-winning play, “Daddy Long Legs� presented by the Arizona Theatre Company at the Herberger Theater Center. The play runs through January 15th and tells the story of a turn of the century era 18-year-old orphan girl who is given a college education by an anonymous benefactor. The only catch is that she must write to him monthly and should never expect a reply or any contact with him. They know very little about each other as the story unfolds and both of their initial opinions will have to change greatly for this love story to actually transpire. How that happens is exactly what the story is about. The 2-person play is a musical, highlighted by pitch-perfect vocal performances turned in by Megan McGinnis, who plays orphan Jerusha Abbott and Robert Adelman Hancock, playing Jervis Pendleton, her anonymous benefactor. It is a difficult and daunting task to divide the voluminous library of lines and songs between only two actors and they should be noted for turning in such flawless performances and delivery. Fans of romance and light comedy will surely enjoy this performance which builds with each letter written between them. Tickets are available through Arizona Theatre Company Box Office (602) 256-6995 or online at

Cole Seely Looks For More Early-Season Success in Supercross Lites Class After an exciting start to the season in front of a sold-out Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Monster Energy AMA Supercross and FIM World Championship heads to Phoenix this weekend for the second race of 2012 from Chase Field. Reigning champion, Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto dominated last Saturday night, posting a flag-to-flag win and starting his title defense on a high note.   Last weekend, Villopoto made a statement to his rivals with his impressive performance. After grabbing the Nuclear Cowboyz® Holeshot in the 20-lap main event,

Villopoto sprinted through the opening laps, setting an exceptionally quick pace and opening up a healthy advantage over the field. Behind him, TwoTwo Motorsports/Bel-Ray Honda’s Chad Reed, Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey, and Toyota/Yamaha/ JGRMX’s James Stewart engaged in a captivating battle for the runner-up spot that kept the capacity crowd on its feet, in an uproar. Ultimately, a crash by Stewart allowed Reed and Dungey to duel for second, with Reed prevailing.   After playing integral roles in the most competitive season in Monster Energy Supercross history in 2011, each of these four riders proved that there is more hotly-contested racing in store for 2012. The dominant effort by Villopoto not only gives the Washington native the early points lead, but also puts the pressure on his three closest rivals since none were able to contend with the Monster Energy Kawasaki rider once the gate dropped.

While Villopoto’s early sprint made it difficult for his competitors to challenge for the win, the “big four” showed their exceptional talent as the only riders in the entire 20-man field to post a lap under 1:02.000 on an extremely technical and challenging track. Even though Villopoto has delivered the first blow in the championship battle, there is no doubt that Reed, Dungey, and Stewart will be putting in extra hours both on the track and in the gym this week to come back stronger than ever inside Chase Field and respond with their own winning effort. In the opening race of the Western Regional Supercross Lites Class Championship, Troy Lee Designs/ Lucas Oil Honda’s Cole Seely took advantage of a top-three start to grab his third professional victory and lead the point standings for the first time in his career.    The Western Regional Supercross Lites Class is exceptionally deep

in young talent, and it showed last Saturday. Seely will look to keep the momentum going this weekend in Phoenix, while is counterparts will also look to assert themselves in the short eight-race championship.   SPEED will broadcast the Supercross class race LIVE at 9:30pm EST on January 14, 2012. Tickets are available at the Chase Field Box Office, all Ticketmaster Outlets, charge by phone at (800) 745-3000,, or online at Practice and qualifying begin at 12:30 p.m., and the main event begins at 7:00 p.m. Club Level tickets are $65 Adult/ Child; Gold Circle $42 Adult/Child; Mid-Level $30 Adult / $10 Child; Supervalue $22 Adult / $10 Child; Treadhead $10 Adult/Child. Fans can also get into the Pits for FREE from 12:30-6 p.m. Race Day when they recycle a MONSTER Energy Can at the stadium Pit Entrance (valid only with event ticket).

FILM! Stan Robinson,

Joseph J. Airdo

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.

Randy Montgomery, AZ Weekly Film Critic

many moments of reflection of the woman who would dare to strive for the highest position of power and how she used it to attain her objectives among a male dominated system. ” Grade: B

*Screened after deadline.

Randy: “Angelina Jolie’s feature film directorial debut is not an easy one to watch. This drama set amongst the civil strife in Bosnia has a slight Hollywood feel, with an outcome that is painfully real. The background story is one that few Westerners know; yet the romantic storyline is somewhat familiar. Overall, ‘In the Land of Blood and Honey’ is an impressive debut dealing with a tough subject matter.” Grade: B+


‘The Iron Lady’

Randy: “Every year there are numerous political biopics released that are over-acted, entirely too long and are created in the hopes of scoring multiple award nominations. Last year’s ‘J. Edgar’ was one of those films. Meryl Streep’s performance as Margaret Thatcher is impressive in ‘The Iron Lady,’ but at times feels more like a caricature than the real thing. The film is light on content and feels as if it was created just to highlight Streep’s talent.” Grade: C

A former smuggler (Mark Wahlberg) finds himself back in the game to settle his brother-in-law’s debt to a ruthless drug lord (Giovanni Ribisi). (R – 110 minutes)

Margaret Thatcher (Meryl Streep) breaks through class and gender barriers to become the United Kingdom’s first female prime minister. (PG-13 – 105 minutes)

*Screened after deadline.

Stan: “Oscar® winner Meryl Streep brings a ‘tour de force’ view of Margaret Thatcher, the first female prime minister of England and the motivating factors of both before and during her term. Yes, its slow and methodically paced, which gives the viewer

‘Beauty and the Beast 3D’* A French maiden takes the place of her captured father in the enchanted castle of an accursed prince, and her love is his only chance to resume human form. (G – 84 minutes)

‘In the Land of Blood and Honey’ A Serbian soldier (Goran Kostic) and his Bosnian lover (Zana Marjanovic) find their allegiances becoming un-

Joseph: “If I were to simply say that Meryl Streep gives an outstanding performance in ‘The Iron Lady,’ anyone – regardless if they have seen the new Margaret Thatcher biopic or not – would likely ask me to tell them something they did not already know. Needless to say, the actress appears to do no wrong. Unfortunately, such was the case with Leonardo DiCaprio’s turn as Hoover in last fall’s ‘J. Edgar,’ that is where the praise peaks. That is because the movie itself is merely a monotonous Avoid the box office and buy & print your tickets online or from your smartphone! 16

January 12th, 2012 - January 18th, 2012

Joseph: “One would think upon watching the musical grand finale of the new spiritual comedy ‘Joyful Noise’ that the movie was lively, colorful and multifaceted. Alas, that is most certainly not the case as the flick could have represented itself far more accurately by essentially dropping the first word in its title. Moreover, the motion picture’s primary plot – in which Queen Latifah is at the center of – is entirely too thin while its exponentially more entertaining ensemble cast members are wasted with very little to do whatsoever.” Grade: D

to rely on convenient coincidences. On the other hand, in delivering his characters to an exceptionally intimate place, Bouchareb gives his two lead actors a chance to truly shine.” Grade: C

‘Joyful Noise’ Two strong-willed singers (Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton) must learn to work in harmony if their Georgia church choir is to stay together and win a national competition. (PG-13 – 118 minutes) Stan: “One doesn’t have to be into gospel music to come away with the basic themes of friendships, motherhood, and tenacity are breezily presented while not ‘preaching to the choir’ on spirituality. The musical selections in a pop-gospel style, elicits toe taping while the talents of the principal actors representing the ‘parenting generation’ and the young people of the ‘millennium generation’ entering adulthood, are aptly conveyed. And yes, the ending gets the typical Hollywood wrap up all the scenarios in a nice, neat little package, that said, ‘Joyful Noise’, with the musical talents of the cast and the ‘quip-dialogue’ exchanges, keeps the uplifting aspects ever present as it breezily presents the lessons.” Grade: C+


‘London River’ Fate brings together a British widow (Brenda Blethyn) and an African man (Sotigui Kouyaté) as they look for their missing offspring. Playing exclusively at Harkins Shea 14. (NR – 87 minutes) Joseph: “Writer/director Rachid Bouchareb’s ‘London River’ is deeply affecting but primarily as a result of its subject matter as opposed to its screenplay or the way in which the events are handled. That is to say that the filmmaker deserves very little of the credit for the intense emotions that the new drama about the 2005 terrorist attack in London elicits from the viewer as his story is strangely simplistic and his technique tends

Though not yet out to her parents, a Brooklyn teenager (Adepero Oduye) embraces her identity as a lesbian and searches for her first lover. Playing exclusively at Harkins Camelview 5. (R – 86 minutes) Stan: “Undertaking the common theme of ‘teen angst’ which is often explored in cinema with ‘Rebel Without a Cause’ (1955) starring the late great James Dean coming mind, ‘Pariah’ presents those very issues in an urban setting with those elements firmly defined by writer/director Dee Reese’s first feature film, with inspired performances by the cast as the characters are clearly defined within their respective issues clearly establishes the moral and the oh so human traits that are ever present.” Grade: C+ Randy: “Years ago, the subject of sexual expression in teens would

Strong performances make this one a standout. Most noteworthy is the supporting role, played by Kim Wayans. This performance is a highlight of Wayans’ career.” Grade: B+ Joseph: “Writer/director Dee Rees’s feature-length debut ‘Pariah’ is a powerful motion picture filled with authenticity and complexity but is easily forgotten because the filmmaker places more emphasis on general situations than she does on Continued on Page 18...

Bet You Didn’t Know!

In “Sinners and Saints,” actor, musician and martial artist Johnny Strong plays a New Orleans police detective who is assigned to help solve a series of brutal murders that have plunged the city into a major gang war. The actor appreciated the opportunity to play a character who represents a class of real-life heroes.

In other words, Rees’s almost obsessive efforts to drive home a point undermine the people with whom we, as the viewers, are asked to sympathize. As a result, we are left with a very clear understanding of the movie’s morals but little recollection of its individual personalities – in spite of a rather remarkable performance from actress Adepero Oduye.” Grade: C

“I was a little jealous that I was not kicking some butt in the movie but it was really nice to change the pace up. One of the greatest things about being an actor is that you get to be so many different people in one lifetime. So, for me, the fact that I did get to change it up was a real bonus.” – Yvonne Strahovski

“A lot of these military guys in law enforcement have to deal with the most hardcore stuff in the world that nobody really wants to deal with. People want to wake up, drink their coffee, have a nice drive to work and hopefully there’s not too much traffic. These guys wake up and get phone calls like, ‘Hey, we got a guy covered in gasoline with a straight razor and he’s high on PCP.’ Who wants to go figure that out?” – Johnny Strong

Movie News

January 17 and Thursday 26, 2012. Presented is a retrospective view that examines the resurging interest in Ayn Rand’s epic and controversial 1957 novel, and the validity of its dire prediction for America. Presented is the forecast more than 50 years ago in the novel of financial collapse. The film looks into Rand’s background for the ideas and philosophy that inspired and shaped her novel, and seeks to determine whether America is indeed headed for the disastrous outcome she predicted so many years ago.

DINE! SPOTTED DONKEY CANTINA AT EL PEDREGAL CHOSEN AS EXCLUSIVE RESTAURANT TO OFFER RARE TEQUILA… Considered One Of The Best In The World! The Spotted Donkey Cantina at el Pedregal is one of only five restaurants in the state to offer its own tequila. Spotted Donkey management was selected to go on a tour with a privileged group of U.S. restaurateurs, to be part of an exclusive “Buy the Barrel” program that took place at the Casa Herradura in Amatitan, Jalisco Mexico. General Manager, Cameron Carlin, completed a comprehensive two day tour that included a start-to-finish learning process about how to produce the best tequilas in the world. The “Double Barrel” course also included tastings from three barrels—each different in taste, nose, and expression. Carlin chose the third barrel, which he thought complemented Spotted Donkey’s menu the best. His choice, the Herradura Double Barrel Reposado, is a non-blended tequila that is rested in oak barrels for eleven months to achieve an inviting smoothness and then rested an additional month in a second, toasted oak barrel especially crated for finishing the maturation process. The tequila has a limited 240 bottle production that will be available at Spotted Donkey in addition to the “chilling machine” that cools the tequila to eight degrees for a perfect “neat” shot without ice. Carlin says, “Casa Herradura was expected to only sell 25 barrels in the first year, but we were barrel number 132! That’s 132 barrels of unique oneof-a kind tequila.”


Gran d Open ing! Late nigh gr ub t

In addition to the exclusive tequila, Spotted Donkey will also be adding new cocktails and tequila

choices to the menu. New choices include: “Sipping” tequilas, such as Clase Azul and Herradura Seleccion Suprema Extra Anejo; “Specialty” tequilas including La Pinta (pomegranate flavored), Don Miguel Mezcal and Mar Azul (banana tequila); “Reposado,” Antiguo de Herradura & Corzo; “Anejo” tequilas including Herradura and Ria Azul (organic tequila) as well as “Blanco/ Silver/Plata” tequilas such as Don Julio Blanco and Casa Noble.

Want one irresistible reason to tune into “Heat Seekers,” Food Network’s travelogue/food challenge that pairs up chef/musician/ TV personality Roger Mooking with “Chopped” jurist Aaron Sanchez in a tongue-torching odyssey to smoke out the spiciest eats in the nation? Try this: Mooking’s laugh. It’s genuine, infectious and ever-present – even as he’s attempting to best his cohort in gulping down gumbo laced with XXXX Voodoo sauce on the bayou or pecking through a pile of inferno-infused chicken wings in Seattle. And if you’re not hooked by then, you’re probably no food TV fan at all. Mooking says the show was the brainchild of Scripps executives who want to explore different culinary cultures through heat and spice. “They said, ‘Let’s put these guys together and see what happens.’ (Aaron and I) went out for lunch and just started kicking it, and they saw right away that the chemistry is good.”

Dressing a pregnant Lily (Alyson Hannigan) on CBS’ “How I Met Your Mother” has not been a challenge for costume designer Reiko Schoenfeld Kurumada. “For Lily’s look, we’re really trying to keep in Lily’s normal everyday style,” she says. “We’re just getting bigger sizes. It’s cool to mix a maternity jean with a top you could wear if you were pregnant or not.” Jeans and leggings are the two things Kurumada has purchased for Lily that actually are made for moms-to-be. “Alyson and I are having so much fun doing our version of maternity wear,” she says. “We just hope we’re showing viewers who are pregnant they can mix and match from their current wardrobe with a few maternity items. That way everyone in this economy is saving money but still feeling fashionable.” The leggings Lily wears are Pea in the Pod and Gap Maternity. Her jeans are J Brand.

On Camelback

I always heard about Dukes Sports Grill, but never really cared to go, however I decided to check it out. This place is awesome for sports with so many TVs and pool tables. They have great drink specials from 6pm to close with: $4.25 Mimosas and Pina Coladas, $3.25 Fat Tire, and $4 Coors Light pitchers. I had a roast beef melt with pepperjack on sourdough that was heaven!! The staff is super friendly and this place gets packed. They have a fire pit for the chilly nights and a central bar with seating that wraps all the way around. 7607 E. McDowell Rd. Scottsdale, AZ 85257

My favorite place to go is New China Gate. It is the smallest restaurant you will probably ever go to but it is simply awesome. $1.50 Bud Lights, $2 Heinekens, and $4 sake bombs all day, every day. The gang pang chicken is my favorite item on the menu. The portions are very generous, so come hungry!! Everyone that works there is in the family, except for the bartender; Robby. I have never met a bartender with better service or one that seems to love his job as much as this guy. Come try this place out, I promise you will have a great experience! 7730 E. McDowell Rd.

January 12th, 2012 - January 18th, 2012




Here…. There…. Everywhere!! Every once in a while we like to look for hidden gems. Places that have great beer, but for whatever reason have yet to be fully discovered by the beer drinkers in Arizona. Of course, we all know some of the great places to find beer in the Phoenix area. These are all the places that are supposed to have good beer. Places like Papago, Taste of Tops, Sun Devil Liquors and all of the great local breweries. Most of you even know that Whole Foods, Sunflower, Sprouts and AJ’s Fine Foods have great beer selections. You probably even know that the

Follow us on and The High-End Beer Division of Crescent Crown” Whole Foods stores at Mayo and Scottsdale and in Chandler have multi-tap set-ups with some amazing beers running through the lines. What about those places you wouldn’t expect to have great beer? How about restaurants where you just wouldn’t expect good beer or that really out of the way place? Are there places like that in Arizona that have great beer? I think you know the answer or we wouldn’t be talking about it here. So let’s take a look at some of these hidden gems. Everybody knows that sushi demands pale lagers, preferably with a Japanese name, even if they are brewed in the United States or

in Canada. Moto, located at 16th Street and Glendale in Phoenix doesn’t buy into that concept. With a menu of fantastic sushi (ask for the underground menu) as well as great noodle and rice dishes, it sounds like a typical sushi bar. Well, they also have a buffalo burger and rib eye steak, and something called an Exit Wound bowl (don’t want to know about that). This is one of the few sushi bars that I have ever seen that have been able to pull of an all you can eat sushi deal (on Saturdays) and actually make it work. And beer, they have great beer. Sure you can usually get a Japanese named beer, but check out the other handles. There is typically something from Ballast Point on tap. And, on a fairly regular basis,

they clear off all taps and put on a selection of amazing beers as part of an event. The events are incredible at Moto. Typically these events start at 4:00pm and go on until close, and will almost always feature at least one rare beer, and they always draw a full house of people enjoying great beer and great company. Most recently they broke out kegs of Avery they had been saving and hosted an Adios to Avery party. Located just of Route 51, they are easy to get to, and you will never leave disappointed. For years TT Roadhouse, located on 68th Street just north of Thomas was known as a great dive bar. Well, new ownership brought on a new attitude. Don’t worry, it’s still the same Roadhouse you’ve always loved, but now with craft beer. Walk in and look anywhere at the bar. You will find a selection of beer that will make you smile and decide it’s time to settle in for a while. Bell’s Oberon, Ska Modus Hoperandi, Big Sky Moose Drool and a bunch more make this a fine place to relax for an evening, or afternoon, of casual drinking. Shoot some pool, watch a little television or chat up your neighbor at the bar. It’s a comfortable place to have a few beers, and they have an outstanding juke box. Cave Creek is all cowboy bars and Mexican restaurants, as far as you know. Sure there are a couple of nice wine bars like Brix. But Cave Creek is also home to some fine dining… Kevin Binkley has his namesake restaurant in town, and Cartwright’s does pretty


Continued on Page 40... January 12th, 2012 - January 18th, 2012

Hello again craft beer lovers, today let’s get back to the beer reviews and chat about Black Iron IPA from Grand Canyon brewing in Williams Arizona. In the last year, we have covered many different styles, but never a Local so let’s spend the next couple of weeks sharing the love with breweries from AZ.



Black Iron is a lighter take on the world of IPAs, basically a hoppy session brew. Pouring from the can a light golden straw colour, this little brew has a crisp, citrusy hop aroma that doesn’t quite follow through on the pallet with as much character. Flavours of sweet malt and light bitterness combine on the palate with a medium body and effervescence to make for a refreshing surprise in the IPA category. Think of this brew as the perfect companion for golfing on a hot Arizona day. Rate beer scores this beer a 50 from 100 but I don’t think this score tells the story correctly. At a time when every brewery is going over the top with huge over hopped IPAs, I think Black Iron stands out as a quality everyday drinker. I Love Beer and consume it quite often, but don’t want to wind up piss drunk every time I drink! There is A LOT to be said for session beers and this one hits the mark quite nicely. Great food pairings should include spicy BBQ wings, summer salads filled with seasonal fruit and marinated chicken or even pork chops with mash. Great Booze pairings include a shot of Jack Daniels and Southern Comfort chilled with lime.

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

As I said earlier, we’re going to spend the next couple of weeks focusing on locallycrafted Arizona beers. It’s important to note that we have many great breweries right here in the Grand Canyon State, so take the time to give them the attention they deserve. As always, keep sending your comments and questions to kingjamesswann@gmail. com. Until Next week, Cheers January 12th, 2012 - January 18th, 2012

well for itself. What locals have discovered is a relative newcomer named Cave Creek Tap Haus. Located on Cave Creek Road right across from Harold’s, this restaurant offers a nice menu and Happy Hour usually features some acoustic music with bands later in the evening. But we’re here for the beer, so how about that? It’s pretty good by our standards. While not a top notch beer bar, it’s still a refuge for folks in that part of the Valley to be able to enjoy some great beer with a meal. Green Flash Hop Head Red, Oskar Blues Dale’s Pale Ale, Krombacher Pilsner (the number one selling Pilsner in Germany) and many more grace the handles here. Did you know that there is a pretty good beer bar in the Old Town Scottsdale area? Well, there are a couple, but the real hidden gem is Daily Dose. From outside it looks like a coffee place…and it is, but with a great menu and well prepared food. But take a look at the


January 12th, 2012 - January 18th, 2012

tap handles. How about Bell’s Two Hearted, Breckenridge Vanilla Porter, Alaskan Amber, Big Sky Trout Slayer and Ballast Point Pale Ale on tap? Looks more like something you would walk into in downtown San Diego. Check out Daily Dose located on the west side of Scottsdale Road just south of Indian School. Nobody expects to walk into a family chain pizza restaurant and find great beer, but that’s exactly what you get at Mellow Mushroom. A fun environment whether you’re there with the kids or showing up with a group of friends to drink some beer. The bar area is separated from the dining room but is open and well lit. The menu is full of interesting pizzas, sandwiches and salads. And the beer…well Mellow Mushroom features 40 taps, everything craft and import and all of it good. Abita Purple Haze is one of their best selling handles, but you can find Papago Orange BlosContinued on Page 41...

som, Wyder’s Pear Cider, Grand Canyon Pilsner, Left Hand 400 Pound Monkey and on the nitrogen tap, its far from the usual, Left Hand Milk Stout served nice and creamy. Mellow Mushroom also has probably the best selection of canned beer available at any restaurant in Phoenix. They have a location in North Phoenix at Happy Valley and I-17 and one on Mill Avenue in Tempe. Look for at least one more to open in 2012. Our last hidden gem is an old favorite but one that is new to the craft beer scene. George and Dragon has been a fixture on Central Avenue for years. But this English Tavern has started to modernize the tap list. Sure you can still find all the old favorites, but check out the Fat Tire tap, and then notice the nitro handle is pouring Left Hand Milk Stout, and then you see SanTan Hefeweizen and Grand Canyon American Pilsner. Wow! George and Dragon has just started their new craft beer program, but with some encouragement from you folks, I bet that we will see this program expand and turn this into a top notch beer bar. Since it is right across from Steele Indian School Park, plan on stopping in before or after the Strong Beer

Festival on February 18th to check it out. Better yet, stop in this weekend and then check it out again in February.

Casual Urban Cool Fireplace Lunch Dinner Late Nite Happy Hour Patio Dining Craft Beer! Full Bar! Delicious Food!

This one may not be a secret any longer but Garage Wine and Tap at 16th and Bethany Home has one of the best lineups you will ever find in a six handle location. Besides their incredible menu and friendly service, you have a selection of beers that includes craft favorites as well as international beers. Order a Thunder Canyon Deep Canyon Amber with your burger, or get adventurous and have a Tripel Karmeliet or Stiegl Goldbrau. Anderson Valley Hop Ottin, SanTan Hefeweizen and Breckenridge Vanilla Porter round out the tap list at this location. Every few months we should look at some different hidden gems, because after appearing in these pages they may not be hidden anymore. So whether you’re eating sushi, or in the mood for Bangers and Mash, or just hanging out in Old Town, it’s always nice to know that you don’t have to forego craft beer. So now that you know you can enjoy yourself anywhere, get out there and do it.

food and desserts, live Italian music all weekend, bocce ball and the Pantera Car Club of Arizona will display their rare Italian made sports cars. Discounted wine tasting and Italian inspired wines by Kokopelli Winery will be featured. Dennis Minchella, Kokopelli’s owner, learned to cook from his Italian-born grandmother Josephine, which helped to inspire many of the weekend’s dishes. Some of our entrees will include: Lavosh style pizzas, Josephine’s Lasagna, Michelangelo Pasta, Chicken Marsala, Chicken Parmesan, Antipasto and Mediterranean Salads. Our desert menu will feature Cannoli ala Sinatra and Coliseum Chocolate Cake, and Italian Cookies and Cream.


We will also have live bands and accordion players rendering Italian tunes all weekend. “This is our 8th annual Italian American Festival at Kokopelli Winery & Bistro in Chandler to celebrate our family’s Italian American heritage. We are very excited to enter our 11th year in Chandler by celebrating our heritage,” said Dennis Minchella, CEO of Kokopelli Winery. Kokopelli Winery is a local family owned winery and restaurant. Don and Carol Minchella founded the winery in 1994. Kokopelli Winery

Before the electronic music sandstorm hit the contemporary clubbing generation we know today, an underground rave scene went rampant with its origin stemming out of Germany—think the movie, Party Monster and maybe you get the context I’m trying to implant in your head. Perhaps such electro dance parties aren’t like that today but understand the impact that music must have had on the attendees. Finnish sensation, Darude, is a product of this scene and member of that generation so I suppose he deserves a little respect for his inspiration and talents. Darude made it big when his 1999 hit, “Sandstorm,” swept to the top of global charts allowing him to secure his spot on DJ Magazine’s top 100 DJs list and remains on it to this day. Not familiar with the song? YouTube it and you’ll recall the fun your brain was having when it first processed it. MLK Jr. weekend is here again which means if you’re not going out of town, you’ll need something to do on Sunday night. The Mint is still fresh in Scottsdale and will be even cooler this weekend when Darude spins for their Industry Appreciation Night and makes you feel like you’re clubbing somewhere fancy in Europe. While you’re there, consider the Ketel One bottle special ($150) and $5 Ketel One cocktails you can enjoy more knowing there’s no work the following day. Sunday, January 15th. 9 pm – 2 am. Ages 21+

Avicii at the Phoenix Convention Center

Oh, those Europeans and their electronic dance music! If you’re a true clubber, you know about Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, and Afrojack. There has to be something they eat, drink, or smoke in The Netherlands that makes these Dutch DJs as great and influential as they are right now in the music world. Avicii, on the other hand, is not Dutch but rather springs from one half of Europe’s ball sack and hails from the same motherland as The Swedish House Mafia. This Grammy Award Nominated 22 year old’s current biggest hit, Levels, is currently on repeat on my iPod and being blasted all over the radio thanks to Flo Rida’s sampling of it. Ohhhohhhh sometimes, I get a good feeling! Yup, that’s the jam! I always get a good feeling when it comes on lalala [smiley face]. So if you’re down (and you should be because I think most everyone got paid on Friday), head over to the Phoenix Convention

Center this Sunday for Avicii’s House for Hunger tour to help him raise a million for the organization, Feeding America. Do some serious dancing to help burn those holiday calories off, and thank this Swed for it. Sunday, January 15th. 7 pm –12 am. $35-$85 at All Ages.

Jay and Silent Bob Get Old at Stand Up Live

Jay and his sidekick, Silent Bob, are back. You’ve seen them in movies, Clerks, Chasing Amy, Mallrats, and Dogma and this time I’m sure, Kevin Smith a.k.a Silent Bob, will actually say more than a few words if anything. Maybe. Anyhow, Jason Mewes and his longtime friend are in town on Thursday to entertain us once again and we’ll have the chance to judge them on how well they’ve aged. Or perhaps they’ve aged horribly and are holding on to the past and that’s why they’re doing standup now? Phoenix Cityscape’s new comedy club is pretty darn cool, though. The venue is on the second floor and is somewhat fancy for a comedy club. Copper House Rock Pub and Kitchen is connected to Stand Up Live and wraps around half the space with windows overlooking downtown, making you feel like you’re actually in a bigger city. Although there is a two drink minimum at the club, the liquid refreshments are tasty and the food you can snack on while you watch the show is delicious. If the talent is not so talented—which I’m sure it will be, at least you can feel satisfied with the food and beverage. Thursday, January 12th. 8 pm. $40. Ages 18+

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

All Zombies Must Die! XBLA, PSN/Available Now Zombie games have been done to death ... well, maybe to undeath. It’s a genre that has seen massive success thanks to the likes of “Resident Evil” and “Left 4 Dead,” as creepy tales and shocking scares are woven around some brilliant, high-end gameplay. Unfortunately, the lighter side of the zombie apocalypse is rarely experienced in the video game universe, leaving players wanting a bit more humor in their undead death-dealing. This simple fact brings us to our latest downloadable action game from Doublesix in which, despite their cartoonish and cute appearance, all zombies must die. Jack is a gamer who has spent more than his fair share of time saving princesses and destroying civilizations. So much so that his girlfriend, Rachel, has not only left him but has also developed a disdain for anything virtual. When the town is overrun by zombies, the former couple will find themselves reunited to fend off the shambling masses. Thankfully, they won’t have to be the lone survivors in this harrowing tale. Brian, the resident mad scientist, and Luxo, an alien with a knack for acting, are also ready to face the horde of zombies and restore peace to the world.

It has been scientifically proven that the less you know, the more you think you know.

In the United States, deaf people have safer driving records than people who can hear.



* July 16, 1969: Apollo 11, the first manned space mission to land on the moon, launches from the Kennedy Space Center. July 11, 1972: The first World Chess Championship game between Bobby Fischer and defending champion Boris Spassky starts. * July 13, 1977: The New York City blackout of 1977 leads to wide-spread looting. * July 12, 1984: Democratic presidential candidate Walter F. Mondale names Congresswoman Geraldine A. Ferraro as his running mate. Ferraro becomes the first female Vice Presidential candidate on a major party ticket. * July 15, 1996: MSNBC debuts on cable TV and online. * July 10, 1999: The U.S. women’s soccer team wins the FIFA Women’s World Cup against China in Pasadena, California. * July 12, 2005: Prince Albert II of Monaco accedes to the throne. & ON

* July 16, 2004: Martha Stewart is sentenced to five months in prison (and five months of house arrest) for a stock sale. According to U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Stewart avoided a loss of $45,673 by selling all 3,928 shares of her ImClone Systems stock on December 27, 2001, after receiving material, nonpublic information from Peter Bacanovic, who was Stewart’s broker at Merrill Lynch. Martha Helen Stewart (née Kostyra), is an American business magnate, media personality, author, and magazine publisher and founder of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. She has gained success through her intelligence, perseverance, simply put; her pure resolve to bring to fruition her visions.

When nobody is watching, 47% of people drink straight from the carton.

Almost 90% of the time, “LOL” is used when the person isn’t really laughing out loud.

Seventy percent of women would rather have chocolate than sex.

Love actually has nothing to do with your heart. It’s all chemical reactions inside of your brain.

On the cover of the May 1995 issue, New York Magazine declared her as “the definitive American woman of our time”.

Although the media widely speculated that the situation would effectively be the end of her media empire, Stewart began a comeback campaign in 2005, with her company returning to profitability the following year. In the months that followed, Stewart drew heavy media scrutiny, including a Newsweek cover headlined “Martha’s Mess”. Notably on June 25, 2002, CBS anchor Jane Clayson grilled Stewart on the air about ImClone during her regular segment on The Early Show. Stewart continued chopping cabbage and famously quipped, “I just want to focus on my salad”.

While in confinement, she took a job and became an informal liaison between the administration and her fellow inmates. The People special, Scandals! That Rocked America stated “Some expected America’s goddess of domestic perfection to fall into terminal despair. Instead, with the drive that would make her a billionaire, Stewart took her lemon of a sentence and made lemonade. Heck, she made a lemon soufflé.” NEWS OR NEWS WORTHY???

There are approximately 61,000 people in the air at all times.

Falling in love can raise levels of nerve growth factor for about a year, which helps to restore the nervous system and improves memory. It costs about 3 cents to make a $1 bill in the United States. Elvis Presley got a ‘C’ in his 8th grade music class.
