The Halloween Before PodCamp AZ 2.0…

last edited 10.23.2008

Given that Halloween is the eve of PodCamp AZ 2.0, for those of (probably) out-of-towners who are party hardy or want to enjoy the spectacles that metro Phoenix has to offer on the night of costumed revelry, here’s a rundown of goings on.

Halloween on Mill Avenue
Mill Ave is the landmark street in Tempe and was recently named one of the coolest streets in America. With more than a dozen bars along five blocks, there will be plenty goin’ down. On Halloween, Mill is by far the best place to see and been seen in all your costumed glory on Halloween. Even if you’re not dressed for the occasion, it’s a nothing short of a visual spectacle.

Monsters Ball
Downtown’s vanguard gallery, the Alwun House is the site of the Monter Ball. This 21+ affair with live entertainment and full bar is the closing party for their Monster’s Menagerie art exhibit which opened October 10th. Costumes are optional, but highly encouraged.

Sip-N-See on First Friday

On Friday, the Young Collectors will be holding our first Sip-N-See of the year. If you can have a tradition after only a year, this would be ours. It’s an evening of art and cocktails, and we’ve chosen to have this one on May 2nd to soak in the vibe of Phoenix First Fridays, to coordinate with other museum events also happening that night, including a fashion show and a dance troupe performance, and to give our members one more last chance to see the Masterpiece Replayed exhibition. This will be my first Sip-N-See, and I’m pretty excited about it.

A few pertinent details:

event time: 6:00 – 10:00pm
fashion show: 7:00pm in the Great Hall
dance performance: 8:00pm in the sculpture garden
admission to event: free
admission to Masterpiece Replayed: $20 for Young Collectors non-members
food / drink: light finger foods provided / cash bar

If you’d like to come out and play, I’d love to have you come join us. Send an email to and I’ll forward the evite (we’d really like to have an accurate count for this).

And if you come…track me down and say hello!
