For those whose current status lacks currency, we have some good news. You don't need moolah to make memories. From trivia games about everyone's favorite two-dimensional family to Phoenix gallery get-togethers and exploring the art of Japanese cinema, there are plenty of exciting ways to show the world you don't give a buck. Here are our top three picks for free events this week.
Simpsons super fans will gather at Bragg's Factory Diner on Saturday, July 26, from 6 to 8 p.m. to prove how well they know their favorite Springfield characters in seasons one through 10. Prizes will be awarded, food will be served, and, without a doubt, more than one person will yell "D'oh!" For details, visit the event on Facebook.
If you haven't checked out Lisa Sette Gallery at its new midtown location, Get Your Phx is giving you the chance. The monthly meetup for Phoenix-based pioneers and entrepreneurs will host an evening of modern mid-century architecture and mingling with drinks provided by Phoenix Ale Brewery. For details and to R.S.V.P., visit the event on Facebook.
