So, 2012 is just about gone. For many of us, this is a time to reflect and to plan for a great 2013. While I like to kick back a bit and relax for a few days, our friends at METRO light rail are looking like they will have a very busy week.
On December 29th, thousands will jump on the train and head to the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl at Sun Devil Stadium. It’s snowbird heaven around here this week as Michigan Spartans and TCU Horned Frogs come to see their teams battle it out in Tempe. No snow shovels needed for the Spartans this week!
Of course, many of those fans will stick around until New Year’s Eve to join in the fun that is the annual Tempe Block Party on Mill Avenue. The party on Mill is sure to be a huge draw for a TON of light rail riders. For those of you that have a serious party hat to put on, you will want to join Canteen, the Handlebar and Fat Tuesday at their party within a party on 6th Street. Yeah, it’s going to be good!
Of course, all of these festivities at the end of the year have people looking for other cool things to do. What can be more “cool” than ice skating in the desert? Yep, Ice Skating at CityScape has been a big hit again this year and people are heading to CityScape each day to strap on their skates. Remember our ice rink is basically surrounded by light rail stations so get down there and break a leg!
Happy New Year, y’all! We look forward to rockin’ the Rail Life in 2013!
