We know: The beginning of the work week sucks. But if you take a quick look at the calendar, you'll see we're off to a pretty good week of art events, sporting events, dance parties, and more. Here are our must-see events from now to the weekend . . .
Monday, March 4: Spring Butterfly Exhibit @ Desert Botanical Garden Normally, we're not big fans of bugs. In fact, we sort of hate them. The single exception to that rule is the butterfly. Attractive, harmless, and generally shy toward people, they're the easy favorite when it comes to crawly creepers. That's why you'll find us chasing the winged insect at the Desert Botanical Garden's Spring Butterfly Exhibit.
If you haven't visited a butterfly habitat before, then you've probably never seen the flocks of fluttering creatures that will sip nectar so close to you that you could reach out and pat them on the wing. From giant Great Southern Whites butterflies to the recognizable Monarch variety, you won't get a better view of their scaly wings anywhere else in the Valley. -- Lauren Saria
