*I* won't be doing any of this as most of my Saturday will be consumed with getting some listings in Wittmann together, and Sunday will be monopolized with web work.
But if you are looking for things to do in and around Phoenix this weekend, here are a couple of ideas. Might not be a bad time to simply enjoy the outdoors, because we're likely just a couple of weeks away from torturous summer heat…
Maricopa County Home & Garden Show: April 27, 28 and 29 at the Arizona State Fairgrounds. Billed as the best that the Arizona market has to offer in building, remodeling, interior design and landscaping, it's very much Phoenix real estate-ish and home owning centered. Tons of exhibitors, and it will be *jammed packed* with people. Here is a photo gallery from a previous show. There is also a poorly done website with more details.
Admission is $5.00, ages 3-12 are $2.00, ages 2 and under are free. If you park at the Arizona State Fairgrounds, it will cost $6 per vehicle.
4th Annual McDowell Mountain Music Festival: Gates open on Friday, April 27th at Noon with music starting at 1:30PM. Gates open on Saturday, April 28th at 10AM with music starting at 11AM. At WestWorld of Scottsdale – 16601 N. Pima Road Scottsdale, AZ 85260 (North of Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard).
Features a full schedule of great bands and artists. Designed to promote family and community involvement, the 2007 MMMF will feature continuous music entertainment.
If you go *right now* you can get $2 mugs of Sierra Nevada Ale!
The Arizona Diamondbacks are taking on the San Francisco Giants on both Saturday (6:40pm) and Sunday (1:40pm). Location, Chase Field naturally (it's still the BOB to me…). Tickets are available. If you can get "Club Box" tickets, they are very cool. They have waitstaff that will take your order and hand deliver your $8 beer right to your seat. The roof will be open for both games. I'm sure the swimming pool seats are long gone ($6,500 for up to 35 people. New this year is a $750 food and beverage credit).
Highs in the low 90's and lows in the 70's all weekend long! Whatever you chose to do, enjoy the weekend!
