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.
