Here they are -- your five best bets for a good time out on the town this weekend.

"The Joe and Jan Show" @ 335 Commons It's no secret Governor Jan Brewer and Sheriff Joe Arpaio deal in antics.

The duo has done more than inspire headlines, though, as 11 artists, including Jeff Falk, Annie Lopez, and Peter Bugg, used the pair as inspiration for works in the exhibition "The Joe and Jan Show." With drawings, paintings, and sculpture, the show looks at the politically polarizing twosome through a critical lens.
