Son de Madera From Veracruz Endowed with an enormous talent for musical arrangements and tradition research, Son de Madera represents Mexico’s current son jarocho movement. This movement is described by the Los Angeles Times as a “rhythmic style which arose centuries ago from the dramatic convergence of Spanish, Indian and African elements. It’s characterized by the bright flutter of the jarana, a small guitar; the sharp dance steps of the zapateado; the improvisations of the lead singer; and a high-pitched call-andresponse chorus.” Son de Madera´s performances are sensuous, with an exquisite sense of musicianship. This

Great Playwright Series Harold Pinter – Strangers in the Bedroom Theatre Artists Studio Friday & Saturday 7:30 pm Sunday 2 pm Thru September 4 Two of Harold Pinter’s rarely staged one-act gems are being performed. As this year’s entrant in The Studio’s Great Playwright Series, Strangers in the Bedroom explores vastly different aspects of relationships. The Lover: Sarah and Richard have an excellent arrangement: She has her lover, he has his whore. At second glance, though, all is not as it appears. Often disturbing, frequently hilarious, THE LOVER sets the whole notion of marital relations on its head. Ashes to Ashes: Rebecca has a lot of secrets. Devlin is determined to uncover them. Instead, he uncovers the truth in the age-old cliché - “be careful what you wish for.” The might have been, Can we tell which is which? Can Rebecca tell the difference as she sometimes reluctantly, sometimes boldly, answers questions about a past lover? Can life be this grotesquely bittersweet? And what of Devlin, Does his story, his reality, depend upon hers?

Noises Off Phoenix Theatre Opens August 25 Wednesday – Thursday 7:30 pm Friday 8 pm Saturday 3pm & 8 pm Sunday 2 pm & 6:30 pm The 2010/2011 Mainstage season will kick off in August with Noises Off, a hilarious play by Tony award winning writer Michael Frayn. This ambidextrous farce features a play within a play that follows the onstage and backstage antics of a fifth-rate acting troupe touring in a new, horribly-written sex farce called Nothing On. Starting backstage at dress rehearsal, nothing seems to be going right, and with each production, there’s a new disaster that is more hilarious than the previous. Full of flubbed lines and false entrances you’ve got to see it.

“My mother was a Church Basement Lady. When I was a boy, I remember hearing the laughter coming from the church kitchen of Lakeview Lutheran in Maplewood, Minnesota when she and her friends would come together to serve.”

by Joseph Gordon Something is cooking at Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre as it prepares to close its 9th season with a delicious serving of the most divinely delectable family musical-comedy, Church Basement Ladies. Church Basement Ladies will begin performances on August 26 and continue through September 25. The church basement kitchen throughout much of America is often the heart and soul of any church. In Church Basement Ladies we meet the pastor, three main kitchen cooks and one daughter who run the kitchen and care for the congregation by preparing and serving the food. The show follows these characters and their relationships as they organize the food and solve the problems of their rural Minnesota church. The women stave off potential disasters, have fun, share and debate recipes, instruct the young, and keep the pastor on the correct course. The Broadway Palm production of Church Basement Ladies is directed by co-creator Curt Wollan and choreographed by Brooke Robyn Dairman with musical direction by JR McAlexander. Russell A. Thompson designed the sets and Mary Atkinson the costumes. The talented cast includes Valley native Angela Dirksen, Kelly Karcher, Kay Francis, Jessica Unice and Edwin Hanson. It was adapted to the stage by Jim Stowell, Jessica Zuehlke (book) and Drew Jansen (music and lyrics) based on the novel Growing Up Lutheran by Janet Martin and Suzann Nelson. Director and co-creator Curt Wollan has always had a warm affection for Church Basement Ladies. He has said,


August 26th, 2010 - September 1st, 2010

Curt has dedicated his work on Church Basement Ladies to the memory of his mother, Lorraine, whose church kitchen legacy serves as an unlimited inspiration. His mother was one of those “Steel Magnolias” of the basement. You’ll find them in Catholic churches, Synagogues, Protestant churches, or any place where someone has to do the unheralded work of making the coffee, heating the casseroles and dolloping the Jell-O. They are your grandmothers, your aunts and your mom and, according to Wollan, “It’s time to thank them and to find out just what that laughter was all about!” Joseph Gordon from the examiner. com recently spoke with Curt Wollan about his never-ending and emotionally satisfying journey with his Church Basement Ladies.

Q: Is this the first time you’re directing Church Basement Ladies? A: Oh, no! This is about the thirtieth time for me. I have been with the show from its initial inception. Church Basement Ladies ran in our theater in Minneapolis, the Plymouth Playhouse, for over two and a half years and was followed by a sequel we wrote called Second Helping. The sequel was also quite a huge success and ran to a year and a half. We also wrote a holiday show, Away in the Basement, which did extremely well last year. The Christmas show was so popular that we had to double cast it, doing fourteen shows a week.

Q: Tell us what makes Church Basement Ladies a special favorite of audiences? A: Mostly women, from forty to whatever, really enjoy the show. Men enjoy the show too because it reminds them of their moms, their aunts, women who devoted their spare time to the good of the church and their community. Its appeal comes from the recognition of the many under-appreciated women who give of themselves so unselfishly. It’s also about all the fun they have working together. Q: Your mother was an actual Church Basement Lady. What was that like growing up? A: It was a lot of fun. That was her country club. Those were all her friends. It was her social life. It all revolved around our little church in Maplewood, Minnesota. I remember as a little kid listening outside in the social hall to the women having so much fun, back in the kitchen, laughing and goofing around. Those wonderful memories have stayed with me and were one of the main reasons we first looked at developing this show. It’s based on a series of books called The Lutheran Ladies written by Janet Martin and Suzann Nelson. The books have been so successful that Martin and Nelson try to publish a new one in the series each year. We based our musical Church Basement Ladies on the first novel Growing Up Lutheran. It took about five years to finally get it right before we opened it in the Plymouth Playhouse in Minneapolis. It became an instant hit. The musical just hit something within our audiences. Peo-

ple love to laugh at themselves. The thing we would hear most after the shows is how our characters reminded our audiences of their grandma or a favorite neighbor. People are always coming back and bringing friends. It’s really nice to see that we are entertaining so many and that they are having such a memorable time. Q: What other shows have you staged for PEG? A: I did Honky Tonk Angels for them two years ago. I also have a home in Florida in Ft. Myers and I have worked with their theater there doing Church Basement Ladies as well. Q: Do you have any particular favorites among the CBL shows you have directed? A: I really do enjoy Part Two, Second Helping. It has a little more depth to it than Church Basement Ladies. In the first show, we are first learning about the characters. Second Helping has a bit more meat to it (no pun intended). We are actually doing Part Two at Ft. Myers this year. I am guessing we will want to do it here in Mesa eventually as well. We are also working on a fourth version that we call A Mighty Fortress is Our Basement. There’s even a fifth one that is in development. It’s based on a true story. Our sound man at Plymouth Playhouse won an Emmy Award for a short that he filmed based on the history of his church in south west Minnesota. The documentary is about the last day of his church. His church had been sold to a museum because its membership had dwindled down so badly. The church decided to invite back everybody who had been a mem-

Q: Do you have any shows that are still on your must do list? A: I have a show in mind that I would like to write about the service industry called How May I Help You? It would be more like a musical revue with a small cast doing sketches and songs about people who work in that industry. I really began thinking about it when that Fight Attendant went literally overboard on that Jet Blue flight. Q: What’s up next for you? A: I leave here right after the show opens and fly to Iowa to the Old Creamery Theatre to stage another production of Church Basement Ladies. Next, I will stage Second Helping in upstate New York in Auburn at the Merry-Go-Round Playhouse. Then I fly back to Minneapolis to stage Away in the Basement at the Plymouth Playhouse. Q: Is there anything else you would like to share about the upcoming production? A: Yes, if customers call the Box Office and mention “Church Basement Angels” when purchasing a full price ticket, $10.00 of the ticket price will be generously donated by the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre to Lutheran Social Services. It’s good any

night except Saturday night, because Saturday night already has a special discounted price of $39.00. Lutheran Social Services holds a very special place in Curt’s heart; he was adopted through LSS in Minnesota. This mouthwatering musical comedy based on recipes, food, and change in the church is funny, heartwarming, and down to earth. It will bring back memories of many people that we have known from churches everywhere. Adult ticket prices range from $45 to $49 and include a buffet meal, show and tax. Saturday evening special for dinner and show is only $39. Tickets for children 12 and under are $22. Show Only tickets are available for $28. Student rush tickets (show only) are $10 and available 30 minutes prior to curtain to currently enrolled high school and college students with a valid school ID. PERFORMANCE TIMES: Wednesday through Saturday Evenings: Dinner buffet begins at 5:30pm, show begins at 7:30pm. Wednesday or Thursday and Saturday or Sunday Matinees: Luncheon buffet begins at 11:45am, show begins at 1:15pm. Sunday Twilights: Dinner buffet begins at 5:30pm, show begins at 7pm.

Nick@ Night By Nick Connell THE DINNER PARTY at Scottsdale Desert Stages, Scottsdale Neil Simon is loose again in Scottsdale with the Scottsdale Desert Stages production of THE DINNER PARTY. Now for those seeking a fanciful look at relationships and their emotional hang ups - this is just the ticket to a night of wit, comedy, setups, and of course laughs - courtesy of Mr. Simon and friends. The friends in this instance are all related (I won’t break the secret) through an invitation to attend a wonderful party created by a guest who makes an appearance at the party as well. But the rest of the evening is a pure set up to reveal the nature of men and women in their human condition - secrets and all. Led first by three men in shining colors, including Wade Moran as Claude Pichon, Jimmy Shoffman as Albert Donay, and Charlie LeSueur as Andre Bouville - they’re all divorcees. This common thread opens the wounds of unresolved failures and makes for some interesting small talk and disclosures as the party begins. But as with every social setting mixed with booze - the men will be boys and the fun begins! Now add three more members to the party - all beautiful women led by Tammy Lindon - Dunn as Mariette Levieux, Jennifer White as Yvonne Fouchet, and Kandyce Hughes as Gabrielle Buonocelli - also all divorcees and you have surprises galore! The chemistry is red hot between the sexes in this fantasy farce wrapped with love and pain like a sweet martini. And here lies the good of the story - that maybe there is a thread of good between men and women - we just need a witty playwright and a lovable cast to show us the way. The Dinner Party is a celebration you’ll laugh with and enjoy from every angle. Make sure you RSVP-ASAP! Tickets 480-483-1664 or GREASE at Valley Youth Theatre in Phoenix There’s love in the air in downtown Phoenix as the new production of GREASE by Valley Youth Theatre is ‘Shakin’ up the town! Made famous by the movie with John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, is a romantic look at adolescence in the 50’s mixed with high school bullies, teen angels, troublesome angst, and perfect for this cast loaded with musical talent! Everyone knows you have to have a Danny (played with true colors by Cooper Hallstrom), a Sandy (played by the stunning Asijah Adolph), a Kenickie (played by the macho Logan Cummings), a Rizzo (played by the tough and sensitive Juliana Alabado), a Marty ( played by the charming Channing Cooper), a Johnny Casino (played by the exciting Brad Cashman), a Doody and Rodger (played by the funny duo of Branson Gates and Will Snyder), and a Teen Angel ( played by heartthrob Colin Ross). Throw in some powerful Pink Ladies, a group of bright Burger Palace Boys, mixed with an ensemble of voices ready to ‘Rock and Roll’- and you have “Greased Lightnin!” Bobb Cooper and his staff have taken us back to the Hand-Jive era in true fashion including radio DJ’s, over the top dance parties, hot bands, wild colors and hip costumes, fast cars and dangerous gangs - only to land us back to the heart of the story - being in love and “All Choked Up”. Grease is a fun ride full of great scenes and cool characters you’ll love to watch. You might even remember when….Tickets 602-253-8188 or www. BREAK A LEG!

say’s Bruce Beresford! 4 of 5 stars

By Joseph J. Airdo

There’s more of my review/interview on-line at

Now that Andrew Garfield has been cast as Peter Parker in Sony’s “Spider-Man” reboot, the attention has turned to the character’s love interest, who, by the way, will not be Mary Jane Watson. Actresses rumored to be in the running include Teresa Palmer (“The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”), Emma Roberts (“Twelve”), Imogen Poots (“Solitary Man”) and Lily Collins (“The Blind Side”). In sequel news, Sylvester Stallone says that he has already “plotted out” the storyline for a follow-up to “The Expendables,” which will likely see a few new faces introduced to the cast of mercenaries while a few old faces depart, and the cast and crew of political thriller “Salt,” including star Angelina Jolie, are ready to go should a second chapter of their film be green lit. Finally, “Iron Man” screenwriters Art Marcum and Matt Holloway have been hired to pen the live-action “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” reboot; “Ed Wood” scribes Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski are set to write the stop-motion animation “Addams Family” reboot; and “Avatar’s” Sam Worthington will star as the titular vampire in “Dracula: Year Zero.” Be among the first to get the latest scoop from Joseph J.

‘Mao’s Last Dancer’, a documentary, drama, musical, and, a true story! Review/Interview by Stan Robinson The world, on both sides of the oceans, held its breath as the events of 1979 were slowly revealed about a Chinese ballet dancer named Li Cunxin who wanted political asylum while performing in the United States. Director Bruce Beresford presents a journey back in time that captures

August 26th, 2010 - September 1st, 2010

Starring Bruce Greenwood, Kyle MacLachlan, Joan Chen, Chi Cao, Amanda Schull, Shuangbao Wang, Chengwu Guo, and Wen Bin Huang. Directed by Bruce Beresford; screenplay by Jan Sardi; based on the autobiography by Cunxin Li. Samuel Goldwyn Films release. Rated PG for a brief violent image, some sensuality, language and incidental smoking. Runtime: 117 minutes.

the lowly beginnings in China and the choice of destiny of a young boy through the art form of ballet, would put a strain on the ‘cultural/political bridge’ between two powerful countries… ‘Mao’s Last Dancer’ is drama based on the autobiography by Li Cunxin. At age 11 in 1968, Li was chosen from a poor Chinese village by Madame Mao’s cultural delegates and ‘taken’ to Beijing to study ballet. Based on the philosophy of the Chinese government, its citizen’s primary duty was to serve the government and ‘being chosen’ was looked upon as an extreme honor for the young boy and his family. The years of training go by, the young boy grows into manhood and a prominent dancer in China. In 1979, during a cultural exchange to Texas, he fell in love with an American woman. Two years later, he managed to defect and went on to perform as a principal dancer for the Houston Ballet, and in his later years, a principal artist with the Australian Ballet. We’re presented a documentation of the political climate, the drama of love, and the world of ballet by the sure hand of director Bruce Beresford. The most challenging aspect, “The merging of the primary elements of the autobiography to capture the spirit, political, and artistic worlds of China, the US, and ballet, in a period film set in a 20 year period from the 70’s through the 80’s was indeed a wonderfully challenging undertaking”

‘The Last Exorcism’, Review by Randy Montgomery A film can be really scary without special effects, excessive gore or masked killers. The most effective horror films in recent decades follow that premise; The Blair Witch Project, The Descent or Paranormal Activity. Following that trend is director Daniel Stamm’s The Last Exorcism. A documentary film crew accompanies Cotton Marucs, a southern evangelical minister to the exorcism of a young woman named Nell Sweetzer (Ashley Bell). Reverend Marcus hopes to expose lies behind exorcisms. He enters the Sweetzer home almost to poke fun at the overly religious family, who he thinks will be cured of the demonic possession as soon as he

Numerous plot twists, turns and developments won’t be mentioned in this review, nor will the somewhat disappointing ending. About 95% of The Last Exorcism is funny, thoughtprovoking or scary, which makes for a roller coaster ride of a good time and fright. The other 5% we’ll ignore, as the rest makes up for it.

small urban apartment complex have been infected with a deadly virus and disease control has sealed off the building. Now, an investigative crew with cameras enters the building to investigate. (REC)2 is highly entertaining and is a perfect follow-up to the first part. There are several edge of your seat moments and a couple of really good scares. A must-see for horrors fans. Looking forward to Quarantine 2. In Spanish with English subtitles. Playing exclusively at MADCAP Theatres. Grade: B+

puts on some hokey-pokey ceremony. He employs all sorts of hidden tricks to make the family and Nell believe she is rid of her demons. That doesn’t work as the “demon” comes back with a vengeance.

Relative newcomer Stamm and producer Eli Roth have created a near (emphasize near) horror masterpiece. Move over Linda Blair and Jamie Lee Curtis... Ashley Bell is the new horror queen. Give her an Oscar nod. The Last Exorcism makes Paranormal Activity look like a Saturday morning cartoon. Grade: A-

‘Takers’, one last heist! By Stan Robinson

‘[REC] 2’, Review by Randy Montgomery Foreign horror films tend to be better than their American counterparts, especially when conceived overseas and recreated by Hollywood. I loved Quarantine (partially because of the interactive experience at Knotts Berry Farm’s Halloween Haunt) the Spanish original, tilted (REC) was better. (REC)2 picks up just seconds where the previous left off; citizens in a

If ‘heist’ films are your ‘guilty pleasure’, and there’s nothing like a well laid plain going astray, this movie has the makings of being just that as a group of seasoned ‘Takers’ find their one last $20 million plan before calling it quits, interrupted by a hardboiled detective who’s hot on their trail! With an all-star cast of Zoe Saldana (‘Avatar’), Hayden Christensen, Paul Walker (‘Fast & Furious’ movies), Idris Elba, Matt Dillon, Chris Brown, Jay Hernandez, Johnathon Schaech, Michael Ealy, Tip ‘T.I’.

Texans Casey and Ethan Jones had worked very hard through a fertility treatment to add a daughter, Eliot, to the family. Then they decided that Eliot needed a brother or sister and returned to the same procedure. Only this time, it produced fraternal quintuplets – four girls and a boy. The family’s story is told in “Quints by Surprise,” a special airing on Monday, Aug. 30, with a spinoff series premiering on Sept. 6. “Having multiple is always a possibility with the procedure that we did,” says Ethan Jones, an Austin-area homebuilder, “and that was explained


to us both times. But the odds of having five is so incredibly low that it is really not brought up much. “Our doctor was very apologetic to us when he gave us the news of the quints, but we knew it wasn’t his hand that created those babies. ... God had other plans than all of us, I guess!”

Sharon Leal and Tyler Perry

“WHY DID I GET MARRIED TOO?” Writer, director and co-star Tyler Perry goes back to one of his earlier hits with this comedy-drama, reminiscent of “Couples Retreat,” that unites several pairs of spouses for a Bahamas vacation. They converse a lot about their respective marriages, one of which has an added complication when the wife (Jill Scott) is still pursued by her former husband (Richard T. Jones). Returning cast members also include Janet Jackson, Malik Yoba and Sharon Leal. Cicely Tyson and Louis Gossett Jr. also star. DVD extras: two “making-of” documentaries; music video. ››› (PG-13: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray)

“HARRY BROWN” Michael Caine does customarily excellent work as an unlikely avenger in this tale of a senior citizen out to even the score when young hoodlums kill a friend in his British neighborhood. Local detectives (Emily Mortimer, Charlie Creed-Miles) aren’t happy that Harry is reapplying expertise from his anti-IRA days to act as a one-man army. DVD extras: audio commentary by Caine, director Daniel Barber and producer Kris Thykier; deleted scenes. ››› (R: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray)

“MARMADUKE” The comic-strip canine prompts another gathering of an all-star voice cast in this otherwise unremarkable animated feature that maintains a dog’s life isn’t so bad. Having moved with his owners to Southern California, Marmaduke (who has the voice of Owen Wilson here) tries to settle into his new environment despite resistance from some of the animal residents already there. Kiefer Sutherland, George Lopez, William H. Macy, Marlon Wayans, Damon Wayans Jr., Stacy Ferguson (alias music’s Fergie), Jeremy Piven (“Entourage”) and the ever-distinctive-sounding Sam Elliott also are heard. ›› (PG: P) (Also on Blu-ray) “THE VAMPIRE DIARIES: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON” The separate book series it’s based on had its own following already, but this CW series surely hasn’t been harmed by the huge popularity of the similarly themed “Twilight” novels and movies. Arriving on video the week before its second television season debuts, the saga lands heroine Elena (Nina Dobrev) between vampire siblings Stefan and Damon (Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder) ... one of whom has her welfare at heart and the other, not so much. Steven R. McQueen, grandson of the movie icon, also is a regular cast member. DVD extras: four “making-of” documentaries; audio commentary by crew on pilot episode; outtakes; “Webisodes”; downloadable audiobook. ››› (Not rated: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray) “NCIS: LOS ANGELES – THE FIRST SEASON” With the success of the parent show, itself a spawn of “JAG,” it was inevitable that CBS would go for a spinoff. Chris O’Donnell and LL Cool J are teamed, surprisingly effectively, in this adventure series following the cases of more operatives of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. Oscar winner Linda Hunt (“The Year of Living Dangerously”) plays the duo’s boss, and Rocky Carroll makes crossover appearances in his “NCIS” role. DVD extras: five “making-of” documentaries; audio commentary by executive producer Shane Brennan on premiere episode; “NCIS” episode that introduced the spinoff. ››› (Not rated: AS, P, V)

Roger Moore

“Dr. No” (1962): Had this first screen adventure of Agent 007 not succeeded, there might not have been one of the world’s most enduring movie franchises, soon to mark its 50th (!) anniversary. Sean Connery’s casino-table debut with the legendary line, “Bond ... James Bond,” remains one of the most indelible introductions in the history of film. “The Spy Who Loved Me” (1977): Easily Roger Moore’s best contribution to the Bond saga, this globetrotting adventure – 007 skiing in the Alps! 007 riding a camel in Egypt! – has a feel that’s jaunty without going over the edge into camp.

Bill (Stephen Moyer) tries to earn Sookie’s (Anna Paquin) trust but only brings new dangers her way. Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) tempts Russell (Denis O’Hare) with “the ultimate vampire dream.” Sam (Sam Trammell) alienates nearly everyone as he embraces his dark side. Hoyt and Jessica (Jim Parrack, Deborah Ann Woll) take their romance to the next level in the new episode “Fresh Blood.”

A scientist (Joshua Jackson) helps the FBI investigate unexplained phenomena in “Fringe” Thursdays on Fox.

Whether you’re baking cookies or cakes, making fajitas or frijoles, tacos or tuscan chicken, the right herbs and spices can make or mis-take the dish. If the seasonings in your spice rack have lost their pizzazz, your recipes will be missing the “mmm…mark!” To get the most flavor, store dried herbs and spices in sealed jars in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight and the heat of the stove. What’s a sensible shelf life?

Road) in Scottsdale, AZ 85251, can help. Phone: (480) 990-7709. You’ve got to see and smell their stock of more than 250 herbs, spices, and blends to believe how great spices can smell. Famous for their first-rate seasonings, people order them from all over. Cinnamon isn’t just cinnamon here. You’ll find cinnamon sticks and chunks, ground Ceylon, Korintje Indonesian, Vietnamese extra fancy, China Tung Hing, or Penzey’s cinnamon blend, each with its own bouquet of fragrances and floral notes. Oatmeal, oatmeal-raisin cookies, cinnamon toast, whipped honey butter, and apple pie will never be the same. Looking for sausage seasoning? Try Bratwurst, Breakfast Sausage, Italian Sausage, Krakow Nights, Tsardust Memories, or Venison Sausage Seasoning.

BEER! Just as there is an art to brewing great beer, there is an art to writing about great beer. And while many people attempt it, there are only a small handful that truly do a good job with it. Sadly, I am not in that group, but I do know of several people that are and thought it would be fun to talk about them a little bit and give you an opportunity to find something to read about beer that’s better than this. I mean something besides the back of the bottle. Anyway, here is a look at some of the top beer journalists and writers. The dean of all beer writers has to be Michael Jackson (not that one, the other one). Jackson is probably the most famous of all beer writers and an inspiration to most current ones. He came to the attention of the beer community back in 1977 when his first book, The World Guide to Beer, was published. This book has been reprinted several times and translated in to ten different languages. More importantly, this book set the groundwork for the modern theory of Beer Styles. In the World Guide, Jackson categorized beers in to styles commonly used today, based on local traditions and names. Jackson was


Follow us on and The High-End Beer Division of Crescent Crown”

always very good at putting his beer reviews in context as local culture for each beer was always a prominent part of his writing. It’s this writing that inspired young brewers in many cities throughout the latter part of the twentieth century to create their own local beer cultures. This seminal work, along with President Jimmy Carter’s signing of a small law legalizing homebrewing provided the base for the craft beer explosion we see today. Michael Jackson went on to be a prolific writer, penning twenty books and providing copious amounts of copy for newspapers and magazines. He also had a show on The Discovery Channel aptly titled The Beer Hunter. Others have tried to usurp this name, but there is only one who can claim the title. What has Jackson said about Arizona? He only made a couple of visits here, but in 1997, he spoke highly of the fledgling McFarlane Brewing located on South 29th Street in Phoenix. McFarlane’s is no longer with us, but a few years ago, Papago Brewing pulled out an eight year old keg of their barley wine and it was still spectacular. The only other thing he had to say about Phoenix beer was not complimentary, but it should be noted that his disparaging comments were made upon tasting the Chili Beer that seems to be all

August 26th, 2010 - September 1st, 2010

many tourists know about beer in this state. Jackson, who was also a world famous whiskey critic, passed away on August 30th, 2007 at his home in London. So this year on August 30th, raise a glass to toast one of the men who has been responsible for us having the incredible beer we have available today.

Fred Eckhardt’s primary beat is the Pacific Northwest, one of the meccas of craft beer. Eckhardt, now 84 years old, was a contemporary of Jackson and remains an active writer, critic and historian. His reputation for being a bit of a character in his hometown, Portland, has also made him a “beer personality.” He is known as a homebrewer and advocate for craft beer. Most of his articles have appeared in two beer magazines, Celebrator and All About Beer. Eckhardt also authored a must read book titled, The Essentials of Beer Styles, which furthered Jackson’s earlier

work and covered new ground in continuing to define the many traditional as well as evolving beer styles in the world. Many people know Eckhardt simply as Fred, which is convenient, because Portland brewery, Hair of the Dog honored him by naming a beer, “Fred.” Fred, the beer, is a big, bold, flavorful product which provides a wonderful drinking experience, and, as further homage to its namesake, ages well. Fred also may be the only beer personality to have his very own beer festival. Fredfest is a small event held in May of each year to commemorate Eckhardt’s birthday. It always features some amazing rare beers and is a great celebration of the life of a true legend in the industry. In previous articles, we have talked about San Francisco as being a premiere beer destination, so of course they have plenty of local bloggers and beer writers. Quite possibly the best of these, and one of the best in the country, is Jay Brooks. Brooks, who was a former corporate buyer for BevMo, maintains an incredibly informative blog titled Brookston Beer Bulletin ( Prior to that, Brooks was the General Manager of the Celebrator Beer News, a national “brewspaper.” He has also been active as a freelance writer regionally, Continued on Page 25...

On the other coast, Philadelphia is a hotbed of great beer, both high end imports and craft. Somehow despite Pennsylvania’s archaic liquor laws, this city has become one of the best beer cities in the country. Right in the middle of this incredible beer scene is Lew Bryson. Bryson is self described as the award-winning, beer-drinking, whiskey-sipping, brewery-visiting, cask-tapping, thirstcreating drinks writer. He certainly fits that bill. He maintains a terrific blog titled, Seen Through a Glass, has an informative web site (www.lewbryson.

com) and has inked several books covering the history of brewing in Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia and New Jersey. Bryson also writes from time to time for national publications and is one of the first people called when local media needs a “beer perspective”. His latest crusade has him taking on the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, and attempting to bring them into slightly more modern times, if not abolish them outright. These efforts alone are worth checking out his web site. There are many other truly good beer writers out there, each with his or her own specialty and perspective on beer. Many of them are regional in scope and write for blogs, local papers, regional magazines and “brewspapers” (there is that word again, isn’t it kind of a neat concept?). To find them, just look for a copy of Celebrator, Ale Street News, Southwest Brewing News, DRAFT Magazine or any of the others you can find online or at the newsstand. If we all continue to drink and discuss great beer, who knows, maybe someday Arizona will even have a decent beer writer to call our own. Until then, you’re stuck with me. Let’s go have a beer.


nationally and internationally. The man whom Brooks would consider the top beer writer in the Bay Area was named William Brand, who wrote a regular column in the Oakland Tribune. Brand was tragically killed in an accident in 2008 and Brooks took over the column of his close friend.

With a recent change of ownership, the new owner combines his experience both as a previous rugby player and as a restauranteur. We can definitely expect great things out of the kitchen. One of the first changes made was to focus on offering a wide selection of craft beer. For example, six of Draw 10’s draft handles are dedicated to local breweries such as SanTan, SunUp, Papago, Grand Canyon, Four Peaks and Sonoran. Their selection also includes a large number of bottled and canned beers. As for the menu at Draw 10, it continues to evolve. Currently comprised of both red and green chili, burgers, sandwiches and such. One thing I definitely recommend trying is the Mac & Cheese with Green Chili.

SLOW BURNING CIGAR? Not a problem darling. To prevent your cigar from going out between puffs, give it a couple of extra quick, short draws coupled with quick exhales before you take a long draw of smoke to savor against your palate each time. You will be amazed at how this simple practice helps to improve any difficult burning cigar.

Kim Clijsters

The questions seem to outpoint the answers as the world’s best tennis talent gathers in Flushing, N.Y., for the U.S. Open beginning Monday, Aug. 30, on ESPN2. How will the average-of-late Roger Federer respond to his shocking loss in last year’s final to virtual unknown Juan Martin del Potro, who himself has questions to answer following wrist surgery in May? He hasn’t played since then, but at this writing he was scheduled to make his return in New York. Similarly, will world No. 1 Serena Williams be a formidable presence after missing a lot of time this year with a knee injury and recent foot surgery? If not, who will be in position to take advantage of the three-time U.S. Open champion’s rustiness?



2) What Division I FCS team scored a shocking upset of the Michigan Wolverines to open the 2007 college football season?

PHX Gives Sat Aug 28


“More than transportation… We are all about taking care of People!” Night at the Theatre Charity Event Concert Sports Outing Wedding Anniversary Birthday Any Special Event …. Arrive in Style!

CALL today and speak to one of our reservations specialist to help you with any of your special events – we can help you with tickets, restaurants, flowers or anything else to help you make your evening a “NIGHT TO REMEMBER!”


Everyone likes a good water park, especially out in the Arizona desert, yet somehow we never get around to actually going. This Saturday we have two good reasons to do just that. Phoenix Gives has teamed up with Wet’n’Wild water park to support two very IMPORTANT causes; the prevention of child sex slavery and domestic abuse. Streetlight is an organization bringing awareness, prevention, and healing to child sex-slavery victims. Most people think this problem is overseas yet, a staggering amount is in our own neighborhoods and on sites like Craig’s List! The Purple Ribbon Council aids children who have been orphaned by domestic violence and seeks to prevent abuse. By purchasing your Wet’n’Wild tickets through, $3 of each ticket will go to the charity of your choice. Adding to the event are the Tractor Pull Divas who will be hosting a series of live band performances starting at 1:30pm-5pm. The Tractor Pull Divas have mixed bluegrass, americana and modern rock to a successful sound labeled “New School American.” Come splash around, listen to your new favorite songs and help contribute to a cause that is not just a “good idea” but is necessary in preventing a forced loss of innocence every passing day. www.PHXGives. com

Hell City Tattoo Fest Aug 27-29th

The Hell City tattoo festival is making its way to the West, specifically to the Arizona Biltmore Resort and Spa. My immediate thought was this would be of interest to only those in the industry. However, after much exploration I discovered that this festival offers more than tattoos. The convention boasts some of the most talented artists from around the country who

will not only be showcasing tattoo art but fine art as well. Events such as the Wet Paint Project, lets you watch as artists create art on canvas as they paint live. The Art Fusion Experiment lets you watch as a team of artists start paintings and switch off to complete each other’s every few minutes. There will be live bands too! Friday night The Father Figures, who have a post-punk sound, will be playing live. On Saturday, the music will be coming from The Green Lady Killers, a sexy female trio who blast high-energy garage-band rock and a bad girl attitude. Sunday’s band will be Sursum, modern music that combines electronic, rock, dance beats, virtual funk, guitars and synthesizers into a whole new sound. Other entertainment will include girl vs girl roller boxing, tattoo competitions, the lovely Suicide Girls, film and educational seminars for those out to learn a thing or two about tattoos. And even a vaudevillestyle “Freak Show,” consisting of all things sharp, pointy, death-defying, and well, on fire. This promises to be sheer entertainment no matter if you have a tattoo or not. www.hellcity. com

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.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES Rafe interrupted Sami and EJ’s wedding and told her that EJ had Sydney kidnapped. He played Nicole’s confession to overhearing EJ admit it, but Sami didn’t believe it until Rafe played the CD of EJ admitting his guilt. GENERAL HOSPITAL As Johnny was in surgery for his gunshot wound, Sonny told Dante he shot Johnny in selfdefense. Ronnie, who had thrown Johnny’s gun in the river, arrested Sonny and told Dante that Johnny had been unarmed, so Sonny was lying. ONE LIFE TO LIVE Kelly tried to get Ford to help her prove Eli was a killer. Eli told Blair he didn’t want a double wedding with David and Dorian, and they went to Tahiti to get married, but after finding Eli’s gun in a drawer, Blair hesitated at the ceremony. THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS Ashley told Tucker she didn’t want to see him anymore, and he threw a tantrum that sent her rushing back to him. Sharon decided to accept Nick’s offer to move back to the ranch, and Phyllis reacted to the news by having sex with Deacon.

Jimmy Fallon

Jimmy Fallon is about to get his biggest single audience yet, and he has Emmy to thank for it. The “Saturday Night Live” alum and current host of NBC’s weeknight “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” gets an earlier showcase by presiding over the NBC telecast of the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards from Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre on Sunday, Aug. 29. It’s a big deal for Fallon, who clearly likes to be liked; not only will he be seen by many people usually not up late enough to catch his own show, but he’s an avowed television fan. “I don’t want to push too hard,” Fallon says of the one-liners he’ll deliver on Emmy night. “I want the Academy (of Television Arts and Sciences, which decides who wins) to be happy, I want (Emmy show executive producer) Don Mischer to be happy, and I want NBC to be happy. It’s not really about me. It’s more about celebrating television and getting all of those (winners) face time.”

Fallon certainly is going into his Emmy gig well-armed with material. “We gave them, I think, six or seven scripts,” he says. “They were like, ‘OK, stop it! That’s more than enough. We have to give out awards at some point.’ I think that coming from ‘Saturday Night Live,’ we kind of know how far you can push things, and what’s enjoyable. I don’t want to make anyone uncomfortable. I want to make people laugh. “We do throw away jokes sometimes if they’re a little bit too mean,” Fallon adds, “but they’re funny, and I get the laugh just in the office. When I ‘hit’ people, I do it in the nicest way, because I don’t dislike anybody. I love everybody and the whole business that we’re in, so (I just make) a little playful jab here and there.” The HBO miniseries “The Pacific,” with Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks among its producers, leads this year’s Emmy nominations with a total of 24. The mostnominated regularly scheduled series is Fox’s freshman year comedy “Glee” with 19 bids, including separate ones for stars Lea Michele, Matthew Morrison, Chris Colfer and Jane Lynch.
