Top 5 Things To Do This Weekend

Well, here we are again. It's Friday once more and we've all aged another seven days since we last wondered what to do on our weekend. Time really flies, doesn't it? Read on and take your pick from the good stuff happening around town while you're still young enough to enjoy it.

Full Moon Hike at Estrella Mountain Regional Park
We do love to cover arts, crafts, and pretty things on this blog. But if you fill your days with such activities, you'll soon feel your body become squishy from the "soft life." Oh, what's an artsy person to do? We say take a hike -- under a beautiful full moon. Get your blood pumping without having to resort to ugly, generic, non-artsy gym treadmills at the hike tonight, Friday, May 28. Click here for more details.

11th Annual Summer Family Exhibition, "What Moves Us: Art of Transportation from the Permanent Collection" at ASU Art Museum
There's nothing more awkward than taking your kid to an art show and sharing the unexpected view of a sculpture of a man with a big wang. ASU Art Museum won't have any sneak surprises like that at their family exhibition, "What Moves Us: Art of Transportation from the Permanent Collection." The show opens Saturday, May 29, and showcases picks from the museum's stash that fit the charming (and G-rated) theme. Click here for details.

Let chicken expert Rachel Bess (she's also a super talented local artist, click here to read about her work) show you the way on Saturday, May 29.

Fetish Prom 2010 at Venue of Scottsdale
Alright you kinky weirdos, it's time to hit your local Trails Department Store and shell out for some pleather because the Fetish Prom 2010 (hosted by Horns & Halos and part of the AZ Fetishball Series) is here. Yes, it's got music, burlesque dancers, and suspension artists hanging from meat know, everything you'd expect. Go ahead, show some flesh on Saturday, May 29, and meet some like-minded sexual deviants. Click here for details.

Salt River Heros = Litter Zero Tubing at the Salt River
It's memorial day weekend. This means that starting Saturday, the Salt River will be jam-packed with young partiers getting housed and peeing in the water. This time around, however, organizers are pushing for a litter-free experience and they're encouraging participants to collect trash as they float along. We're hoping this means the river won't have any of that scary foam floating near the water's edge...what is that crap anyway? Click here for details.

Extra Bonus: Zombie Walk and Beauty Pageant at the Hyatt Regency Hotel
Okay, we said "Top 5" but here's a little reminder of the spectacular zombie event tonight, Friday, May 28, for all you Comicon-ers out there. Click here to read our post from earlier this week to get all the details.
