This weekend is so jam-packed with events, you should plan a recovery day on Monday. With this list of things to do, you're gonna need it.
"A-1 Country" Art Exhibit and Beer Tasting @ Icehouse
This is an event you really shouldn't miss. From 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. tonight, Friday, September 3, the Icehouse features Arizona-inspired beer and beer-inspired art. Nimbus Brewing Company of Tucson has revived A-1, AZ's very own brew of the 1940s. Photographer William LeGoullon will show off works that illustrated the beer's history. Click here for more details.
Grand Opening of Club Sutra
You may have read about this on our Up on the Sun blog but the New Times loves lesbians so much, we thought we'd pimp this event a little more. We're pumped for the Grand Opening of Club Sutra, the latest lesbian club to hit the Valley. Formerly Incognito, the new spot has a Miami-inspired vibe for all the ladies. Check it out starting at 7 p.m. tonight, Friday, September 3. Cover costs $7 after 11:30 p.m. Click here for details.

The Writer's Bench @ Just Blaze
Hey, remember our post about Just Blaze? The head shop/art gallery/art supply store is throwing a party Saturday, September 4, for all you "writers" out there (the store strongly urges their guests to "leave the beef at home"). The shindig goes down from 5 to 10 p.m. and promises free giveaways, DJs, and a live body painting contest. Click here for details.
