Hot dog! It's already the weekend! Consider that Memorial Day cookout a warm-up for this weekend's premier sporting event: Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest Qualifier at Arizona Mills Mall. If you think you've got what it takes to eat and compete, show up to Nathan's on Saturday at 1 p.m.

Are you ready to rock, Phoenix? Jagermeister certainly thinks so. Check out the Jagermeister Music Tour (no points for creativity there) this Saturday at Marquee Theater starting at 6 p.m. Headliners Hatebreed and Type O Negative brought a few of their friends along: 3 Inches of Blood, Pelvic Meatloaf and Six.

For more information, see the Jagermeister Music Tour Web site. Mind the volume before you click.

Not into murdering your brain cells with relentless head-banging? Brand X on Mill Avenue has you covered. Come by for their Academics Party on Friday starting at 7 p.m. DJs, silk screens, and something called "wheat paste" art have been promised.
