Hot Diggity Dog

Watching Kanye West continue to boast about his opulent lifestyle makes some of us wish that the events which transpire in Trading Places could happen in real life. Who wouldn’t want to swap their foreclosed home for a Trump Tower penthouse for a few days? Although, returning to your less-than-glamorous lifestyle would be a bummer, since not everyone can befriend a prostitute played by Jamie Lee Curtis, figuratively stick it to the man, and then walk away a millionaire thanks to an orange juice fortune. Nevertheless, it is fun to indulge in such a daydream. Brat Haus brings the escapism in the form of ‘1980s and ‘90s hit movies as part of its Sunday Cinema series, which includes a brat, boot full of beer, and small order of fries for $20. Indulge in the Trading Places screening at 7 p.m. Sunday, July 14, at 3622 North Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale. Call 480-947-4006 or visit
Sundays, 8 p.m. Starts: June 30. Continues through July 29, 2013
