Top 5 Things to Do in Metro Phoenix This Weekend

Phoenix, your weekend plans are here.

PoeFest @ Hotel San Carlos Arizona Curriculum Theater is getting old school with its scare tactics as it brings back the fifth annual PoeFest. By now a Halloween tradition, this month-long series celebrating the gothic literature of Edgar Allen Poe takes signature stories and poems -- including Annabel Lee, The Raven, The Cask of Amontillado, and The Tell-Tale Heart -- to the stage. Much more than just readings, these literary classics get a creepy makeover as performed by characters in a 19th century asylum for the criminally insane.
