Looks like there are a ton of cool things to do along the line over the next few weeks. I’m sure that trend will continue, but I thought I’d mention a few fun things coming up in Tempe for this week. Next week, I’ll fill you in on some of the cool stuff happening in Phoenix.
1. This Thursday, you can check out the new Market on Mill. From an email I got today, I read: “The Market is a joint venture with the Downtown Tempe Community (DTC) and the Phoenix Permaculture Guild and will take place every Thursday from 5 – 9pm on the plaza in front of the MADCAP Theaters.
Unlike a traditional farmer’s market, the Market on Mill will be very community-focused (local growers, artisans, crafters, restaurants, bands) and also be the first carbon neutral, "green" community market in Arizona! The Market opens with a soft launch this Thursday, September 3rd and will have its official Grand Opening on Thursday, October 15.”
I am looking forward to checking out the market, especially when the weather finally breaks. Take light rail to the 3rd/Mill station and walk south to the market.
2. EVFN at Studios 5C: Once again, our friends at Lunchbox Collective are hosting East Valley Friday Nights. From them, I got this info:
This quarter’s featured artist is Logan Bellew, his show is titled Clean #2. The location is Studios 5C Gallery at 502 S. College Ave, Tempe, AZ 85281 (the reception and gallery are on the third floor). Studios 5C is located just south of the light rail station at 5th and College ( Sun Devil Stadium station). Lunchbox Collective will be providing beer & wine along with hors d’oeuvres. ( seriously! )
Date & Time: Friday September 4th 6-8 PM
3. ASU Football at Sun Devil Stadium: Saturday night, we get to watch some ASU Football. In fact, this is the first season where light rail will drop people off right in front of the stadium. Talk about convenience. Take advantage of one of the free park and ride lots and head to the game! Go Devils!!
