This week in Phoenix (March 24-30)

Weekly things to do in Phoenix

Sorry we skipped a week! I was out of town and just couldn’t quite fit the post in before I left. I feel so bad too because this time of year is crazy busy in the Phoenix area and I wouldn’t want you to miss out on anything, like Kenny Rogers performing tonight for example or Mesa’s Festival of Creativity (today is the last day). Oh well. So goes life. Another week is here so have fun! Also, I just found out: for any parents out there who want to buy Phoenix Children’s Museum memberships for the next year, they’re offering $25 off if you get it buy March 30.
