New Times photographers were out and about this weekend. Did they snap your picture?
On what was probably the last reasonable weekend weather-wise before things really get sweltering, sun bunnies, bathing beauties, bikini-clad revelers, and guests of the Hotel Valley Ho crowded around its OH Pool on Saturday, April 19, while Mr. P-Body spun remixes and hits during the weekly Session Saturdays.
There was a lot of new art to show off at the Third Friday Art Walk on April 20. The smaller crowd brought intimate settings: a chance to view Phoenix's downtown art scene with new breath. From a latex molded sock installment to a cross-country art collaboration, the spring season has been introduced.
Phoenix's 420 weekend celebrations may not be quite on par with that of our Northeastern neighbor, Colorado, but that will change someday soon. Arizona's medical marijuana dispensaries, peer to peer networks and head shops pulled out what stops they could in order to present MMJ patients with a fun time during the unofficial marijuana holiday.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
