Men of Playgirl Magazine @ Celebrity Theater
You know, if Jackalope Ranch includes events like this, it's only natural to cover this all-male strip show. Yes, on Friday, June 11 at 9 p.m. sexually frustrated women from all over the Valley can scream their guts out and objectify the men of Playgirl magazine who will be greased up and ready for some excellent jiggling of their dangly parts. The night promises choreographed routines, live vocal performances, break dancing, magic, humor, and massive pectorals. Click here for details.
Summer Opening Celebration @ Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art
There are three new exhibitions up at SMoCA. You know what that means...par-tay! In their usual classy fashion, the museum will host a night of libations, mingling, and plenty of fine art on Friday, June 11 from 7 to 9 p.m. And, the big time bonus: Jackalope Ranch will be there, awaiting your suggestions for our "Name the Jackalope" contest. Yes, complimentary Jackalope Ranch buttons will be at the ready. Click here for details.
2010 World Cup: USA vs. England @ George & Dragon Pub
In case you haven't heard, it's World Cup time, folks (check out our complete World Cup listings here). This means that Americans suddenly start giving a crap about soccer. But if you head to the George & Dragon Pub on Saturday, June 12 at 11:30 a.m., you can bet there will be a handful of expert soccer fans. Yes, it should be a helluva beer-slamming, floor-rumbling, and head-butting good time as Americans and Brits get rowdy at the British pub. Click here for location details.
Great American Dodgeball Bash @ US Airways Center
Okay, so you're reading an arts blog. You're probably not the biggest sports fan. For this, you don't have to be. The ultimate ironic "sport" of our time is coming to US Airways Center on Saturday, June 12 from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Watch as local co-ed teams wail on one another with red inflatable balls. The rules are simple (just think back to elementary school) and the competition is only semi-serious. Trust us, it's a sport event for the sensitive, artsy types. Click here for details.
The Follies @ Ice Pics Video Bar
What's funnier than a man in heels? How about men in heels who sing, dance, and tell raunchy jokes? You'll find it in spades at The Follies on Saturday, June 12 at 10 p.m. where the "ladies" have cooked up a tremendous show featuring their Broadway favorites. And to the hetero men who get dragged (get it?) to the show, order up some shots at the bar because you're an easy target for these sassy performers. Click here for details.
