Thursday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, the Arizona Cardinals will be hosting the Oakland Raiders for this year’s final pre-season home game. (hmm the nfl theme song)
Oh, the places you’ll go! Thursday through Saturday at Mesa Arts Center is one of those places! Experience Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters as they spring to life onstage in Seussical JR., a fantastical musical extravaganza! “If you never did you should. These things are fun, and fun is good.” – Dr. Seuss
Got a cool car? Or maybe not, either way, cruise on over to the Pioneer Justice Court in San Tan Valley this Friday night for the premiere of Courthouse Cruise-In. There’s no charge to show off your car OR to come out and see all the customs and classics. All types of vehicles welcome…Hot Rods, Muscle Cars, Rat Rods, Low Riders, Antiques, Motorcycles, 4×4’s, you name it, they want it. Also enjoy music, food, drink and raffles along with the automotive eye candy. Oh yeah, restrooms are also available in the lobby. Always a good thing….
On Friday, Chandler Center for the Arts as part of their Free Summer Concert Series presents Elektric Voodoo. This 7-piece ensemble from Southern California brings master musicians on saxophones, congas, bass and guitar to create a high-energy dance-in-the-aisles party. Truly genre-bending, Elektric Voodoo blends its infectious Afro-beat with Latin, rock & roll, jazz and blues to cast a truly hypnotic spell. Well alrighty then.
And heading back over to Chandler on Saturday to finish off our list right at Wild Horse Pass Hotel & Casino…Mr. Las Vegas himself Wayne Newton will be entertaining our socks off. Danke Schoen Darling, danke schoen.
