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: Island of Misfit Toys X-Mas Lux Pow Wow
Picture this: It's Christmas day. All the presents have been opened. All the wrapping has been discarded. You've had more than your fill of egg nog and ham. And yet.... it's barely 3 p.m.
What's a person to do on his or her precious day off of work? Spend it entirely with the family, modeling mom's hand-knit gifted sweaters? On such a major holiday as Christmas one could hardly expect anything decent to be open... Or could they?
Cue Lux Central to the rescue. The local coffee and cocktails hybrid hangout is proving yet again that the true meaning of "holiday" is "party." Starting at 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Lux will be throwing down the Christmas shenanigans with beats from Sean Watson, Benni Beatnik, Deux Yeux, and Jared Alan. The Lux bartenders will also be mixing special holiday drinks behind the counter to get the people dancing- and best of all, there is absolutely no cover.
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.
