If you think you couldn’t possibly enjoy Shakespeare, this could be the show to change your mind.
It starts with a name, those Ancestry.com commercials promise. That, and a paid subscription to the site. Not to mention the patience to sit hunched at a screen, following cybertrail after cybertrail ever deeper into a rabbit hole of genealogy information that’s difficult to know for sure is truly your own.
Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre fans, you can finally put the question to rest: No, the Broadway Palm is not coming back.
Picture this: Instead of going to dinner and a show, you’re immersed in the dinner and the show — and the dinner is kind of a big deal.
Grabbing a bite and a drink at Tempe Marketplace is a good bet anytime, but your dining dollars can really make a difference there on Sept. 29.

It’s a marriage of high culture and pop culture: The Phoenix Symphony is teaming up with “American Idol” for two concerts at Symphony Hall.
If you need a little shove to shake you from your dining-out rut, Fall Arizona Restaurant Week is it. And this time around, it arrives with some welcome additions in Chandler, Gilbert and Mesa.
The first time I went to the ballet, I couldn’t help but be enchanted. I was a child, and my exotic, much older second cousin was a “real” ballerina, breezing through town in vibrant stage makeup and a beautiful costume as part of a national tour. To top it off, the production was housed in an ornate downtown theater I’d only ever been to on elementary school field trips.
Rise and shine, Mesa breakfast lovers; you’ll soon have a new place for your first meal of the day.

“I can’t believe I’m in the same room in Gilbert, Arizona, with Abraham Lincoln’s signature and Thomas Jefferson’s signature. It’s crazy,” says museum volunteer Cathy Schnaze.
She manned the exhibition the day I looked around, noting weighty items such as the signatures of Patrick Henry, James Madison, Robert E. Lee, George S. Patton, Winston Churchill and even Adolf Hitler, and more everyday things, like a ceramic gingerbeer (like rootbeer) bottle from the Civil War era or a tiny, weathered Catholic Mass book found in the hand of dead French soldier during World War I.
The items, somewhere between 200 and 300 in number, are only a fraction of what Gilbert’s Gary Kinnaman, retired senior pastor of Word of Grace Church, has collected over the years. [More on next slide ...]

It can’t hurt to kick off the school year with some positive reinforcement about reading, and that should be available in spades at Girls Night Out, a free event for teen readers featuring No. 1 New York Times bestselling author Aprilynne Pike and fellow writers Suzanne Young and C.J. Hill.
Instead of wilting in the heat, budding artists can thrive this summer in an unlikely wellspring of creativity: a Phoenix hotel.
It’s easy to get used to things that have been around awhile, to assume you know them. Take Chase Field, for example. Opened 15 years ago, most of us have been to at least one ball game there, but few have scratched beneath the raucous game-time veneer of waving for the JumboTron, downing hot dogs and slurping beers.

It’s safe to say I never realized just how cool Phoenix Zoo’s Winter in July is until I got a peek at the zoo’s kitchen for animals. That’s where dedicated “chefs” craft frozen treats for zoo creatures with care, a sense of humor, and some pretty grisly animal parts.
