The Street Smell of Success

Walking down Roosevelt Row has become an art form in itself. Avoiding the pitfalls of light-rail construction and handling the transients asking for money -- all while trying to catch the eye of that handsome indie fellow who’s on his way to Carly’s -- is no easy feat. But we’ve gotten some great practice with the twice-monthly art walks and the late-night stumbles home from The Lost Leaf, so we’re definitely ready for the 2007 Roosevelt Row Harvest Festival. The day will be packed with live music by eight Arizona bands, a whole crapload of vendors, children’s activities, and the chance to check out local businesses. Four Peaks Brewing Company will host a killer beer garden and unveil a new brewski created especially for the event. Also check out the Roosevelt Action Association Home Tour (tickets are available at the festival) and make a quick detour to the "DECK" exhibit at the nearby Bragg's Pies Factory Building on Grand, where just about every artist in town has contributed a modified skateboard deck. The fest takes place in a blocked-off section of Roosevelt between Fourth and Seventh streets.
