    If you end up in Mesa (hahaha), check out Rancho de Tia Rosa's. The food is pretty good, and the surroundings are awesome.

    Ah...I'm not 21.

    I'm going for a show. So far, it sounds like worse of a hole than I thought. In either case, it should be a nice change of scenery from Vegas.

    I like going to shows at the Mesa Amphitheatre. It's pretty much the only thing in Mesa I like.

    I used to always drive to Mesa for a few choice things when I lived in Phoenix. Now that I live in Mesa, all of those places are gone, except Mesa Amphitheatre.

    It's kind of a dive. It's on Baseline. They serve food and beer. They have pool tables and pinball machines and arcade games. There's a little stage and you can sit at you booth or stand on the area in front of the stage and watch bands play. It's rather awesome.

    They don't have a ton of shows and they tend towards the tiny and obscure.

    That's where Melt-Banana is next Tuesday. I am excited.

    I'm not sure Melt-Banana would be your favorite gig ever anyway.

    Do they still have all the old hollywood posters all over the walls? I probably haven't been there in 10 years. My god. I used to go watch my favorite local bands there.

    Tom, if you have time, you should check out La Colección Jumex while you're there. It's quite the collection of contemporary art; they've had a lot of high-profile purchases recently too like Damien Hirst and Andreas Gursky. I really really really want to visit it.

    If you're going for a show-stay in Tempe. It's close enough to Mesa and at least you can stroll down Mill Ave-even if you can't drink.

    Oh, yeah. It has not changed a lot. I've played there more times than I can remember. Ross, the owner, is an interesting Dude. Great guy, though. Big supporter of local music. Just a little...odd.

    You'd really recommend Mill Avenue now? I find it nothing special. I guess I'm comparing it to what it was say a decade ago rather than the rest of Tempe as would be fair but it still is a disconnect to me.

    Mill Ave seemed pretty cool in the early 90's. I haven't been there in a while, but the last time I was there, it was overrun by corporate America. Bleh.

    Yay. If you do want to do it, I think it's by appointment only so you should call ahead. And if you go, please take pictures!

    And, the dreaded irony being that corporate America moved in because of Tempe hosting a BCS game every year, and a championship every 4 years. Plus the Cardinals.
    Now, all that is in Glendale...
