Over the Weekend: Top Chef, Native American Basketball and Romantasy Cabaret

Top Chef at Phoenix Public Market

The Summer heat didn't slow Downtown Phoenix Public Market down a bit this Saturday. While just across the street early morning people scrambled to get a seat at Matt's Big Breakfast, market shoppers selected fresh produce, traded crafts and oh yeah, got autographs from Top Chef cast members Richard Blais (season four) and Betty Fraser (season two).

Romantasy Cabaret at The Sets

Life is a cabaret old chum, and that means the audience was treated to music, dancing and even a few revealing acts at The Sets on Saturday July 26, 2008.
