Fortress of Mall-itude

The controversial CityScape, located at Central Avenue and Washington Street, is the City of Phoenix’s latest attempt at solidifying the downtown core as a place that people want to be. CityScape’s Grand Opening will be a good opportunity to party up with its cheerleaders and keeping-your-enemies-close skeptics. Festivities include “The World’s Biggest Coffee Break” at 8 a.m. and the dedication of the downsized Patriots Square Park at 10 a.m. From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., “A Taste of CityScape” promises free food and beverages from resident eateries. The evening kicks off the complex’s first First Friday and is capped by Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Macy Gray.
