Weekly Freebie: Marshall Shore: Retro Spectacular

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: Marshall Shore: Retro Spectacular

Listen up, history buffs: Phoenix's favorite unofficial historian, Marshall Shore, is gearing up this week to take curious locals on another trip down memory lane -- or more specifically, Route 66.

This free Route 66 Retro Spectacular will be held on Thursday, January 10 at 7 p.m. inside Phoenix Metro Retro and will feature all forms of fact and fascination along the iconic strip of Americana.

Prepare to learn, discuss, and maybe even be surprised as Marshall Shore explores the history of Route 66, Arizona, the 1930's, and how it all ties in with John Steinbeck's Grapes of Wrath.
