Third Friday, Morrissey, Coffee, Cookies & Crafts, and Ninja Turtle Madness over the Weekend

Downtown's Third Friday (Nov. 18) 

Art walks are more often about people watching and shenanigans and less about the actual art. Third Fridays in downtown Phoenix are a little different. Check out the scene at a few of Downtown's favorite galleries.


Morrissey has never been the kind of artist to shy away from what's on his mind. Animal rights is a topic near and dear to the man's heart, and while songs like "Meat is Murder" address the topic artfully, The Moz has resorted to uglier (some would say racist) statements to get his point across.


 

The caffeinated, sugar-induced craft bonanza that is Coffee, Cookies & Crafts ushered in a marathon of holiday-themed gifts, craft supplies, and interactive activities in Downtown's Bragg's Pie Factory. 

The Royale Theater in Mesa hosted the perfect night for those who like their nostalgia in a half shell. Zia and Cult Classics also presented a variety of cult memorabilia for those still working on their collection. We were unable to find the holy grail of TMNT gear: a life size Krang suit. Oh well, maybe in Dimension X.
