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: Airing of the Grievances at Phoestivus
'Tis the season to go stir crazy -- blame holiday shopping, holiday party hosting, and holiday traffic. Luckily this week and next, Phoestivus will return for its third year to help you unburden your merry, yet weary self.
Happening Wednesday December 5 and 12 from 4 to 8 p.m. at Phoenix Open Air Market, Phoestivus will have it all: a variety of local vendors and handmade crafts, food truck favorites, and a newly added beer garden featuring a very special Phoestivus Ale.
But if your shopping's already done and your belly's already full, we've got one more reason to check out the Phoestivus festivities -- the Airing of the Grievances. This event is your free shot at unloading a season's -- nay, a year's -- worth of stress.
Gather round the Phoestivus Pole and let the world know how you really feel about long distance family reunions, limited return policies, and 24/7 Christmas music. It's cheaper than therapy and less traumatizing than a late mental breakdown.
For more information on where and when to air your grievances, visit Phoestivus online.
