Long weekend leaving your pockets empty? No worries. We know plenty of events that'll keep your social calendar strong and your savings, well, intact. From kinky film screenings to souped-up rides and fashionable exhibitions, here are three free events in metro Phoenix this week.
Vision Gallery is inviting visitors to learn a little bit more about the LBD with a special fashion exhibition on loan from Fashion by Robert Black. Examples of the wardrobe staple range from the simple to the spectacular with designers including Chanel, Dior, Gucci, Pucci, and Moschino. "The Little Black Dress: Through the Decades" is on view Friday, September 5, through Saturday, October 25. The opening reception will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. on September 5. Visit www.visiongallery.org for details.
From 5 to 9 p.m. every Wednesday, September 10 through November 19, more than 250 tricked-out rides will make their way to WaterDance Plaza at Westgate. Here, motor-heads can ooh and aah over vintage vehicles and customized muscle cars. More information can be found at westgateaz.com/hotrod.
