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: First Friday Sock Hop
If you've had enough bumping and grinding on the dance floor and find yourself reminiscent of a time that was way before your own, the Arizona Lindy Hop Society has you covered.
Every first Friday of the month, the Arizona Lindy Hop Society invites community members to partake in some retro reveling at the 5 & Diner in Phoenix. Swing dance to the tunes of rockabilly bands including the Moonlight Howlers, playing this Friday, January 4.
The music kicks off at 6 p.m. and the free swing dancing lessons start at 7 p.m.. Guests are encouraged to wear their vintage best and if possible, drive it too. Anyone driving a car older than 1972 to the event will receive 50 percent off a 5 & Diner meal.
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.
