Each week, Jackalope Ranch brings you a free event, workshop, or you-name-it happening in Phoenix. Because sometimes the best things in life really are free. This week's freebie: AIA Reincarnation Tour 2013
Downtown Phoenix has become somewhat of a sanctuary for historic buildings. Rather than face the conventional fate of demolition and development, re-purposed relics about town are gradually being transformed into galleries, restaurants, shops, and living spaces. It's in with the old and the new -- and it's cause for celebration.
Kicking off at Bragg's Pie Factory, this free tour will feature presentations on Greening Lower Grand Avenue and Transforming the Urban Environment; self-guided exploration through participating Grand Avenue businesses and galleries; a progress check on the upcoming Filmore Vig; an Urban Living Tour at the Lofts at Filmore; and an after-party at Crescent Ballroom.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
