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: Yarnball at Lawn Gnome Publishing.
Thanks to internet trolls, identity theft, and an unexplained dent in your car door, it's pretty easy to form a negative opinion of the human race. Fortunately there are still those small acts of kinds to remind us that society is not entirely doomed: the opening of a door, the retrieval of a lost pet, and this week's open mic at Lawn Gnome Publishing.
