I joined 16 other mayors in New York City last week to launch a nationwide effort to boost volunteerism in cities. Join in on volunteerism — it makes a world of a difference. We anticipate covering about 230 miles on area roads to attend Make A Difference Day projects. The message we like to send is that every individual can make a difference.

The scene from last week’s When in AZ compilation release show at the Rhythm Room was sweaty, full of cheap beer and sometimes oddly confusing. The show featured Treasure Mammal, Colorstore, Lonna Kelley, Sweetbleeders and Coats and Villa. Check out the photos below for all the rockin’ good times and make sure to stop by the final release show this Friday, September 18, at Hard Rock Café.

Live in this beautiful Spanish bungalow. Ashland Place is a very cool and quaint historic neighborhood near the Heard Museum. Your home would be just a few minutes’ walk to the light rail station at Encanto and Central.
This home was built in 1925 and features original hardwood floors and a vintage stove. The interior has been freshly painted. The exterior features a very inviting front porch and huge back yard with a newer brick patio.
The asking price of $220,000 is “subject to the existing lender’s approval of a short sale.”
For more information about this property or to arrange a personal viewing of the property, contact Lyle Plocher at 602 373 3725 or firstname.lastname@example.org

DPJ is proud to bring you the best Yelp reviews of your favorite Downtown restaurants, boutiques, venues and everything in between. Every Tuesday, visit DPJ for a finely crafted, tell-all account of a Downtown spot straight from the experts: the people!
I love the atmosphere of this place. Definitely somewhere you can find something very special if you look hard enough. I popped in to check on Lani from Olive Annie (sadly she had to close and has her inventory at Sage until it’s gone). I had been in before and picked up some cute vintage signs.
It’s antiques but with a bit of a twist – lots of European salvage type stuff. If I had more money to spend I’d probably redo my bedroom. Since I am not rollin in it at the moment my purchase was a Mer-made peace sign necklace from Lani’s inventory at 50% – a total steal.
If you love vintage, retro, European style, I would recommend Sage for an hour of treasure hunting.
Sage is located at 335 W. McDowell Road. (602) 258.3033
The DPJ Yelper of the Week offers honest insight on a Downtown business to help you explore your core. DPJ hopes that by partnering with Yelp to spread the good word about well-loved Downtown spots, you’ll spread your patronage and support local business.
Yelp is a social networking and local search engine that provides the reviews of places and things that matter to you. Simply log in, pick a place and queue up your inner critic. You can write a beaming review of your favorite gelato spot, or a scathing portrayal of that rental car facility you had to use after that curb came out of nowhere. Yelp’s reviews are at once honest, uncensored, wildly hilarious and true. Heck, the site must be doing something right — it had 25 million viewers just last month!
“Quench me when I’m thirsty; come on and cool me down, baby, when I’m hot.”
As the melodic groove of Marley’s “Stir It Up” continues, I feel miles from trouble, but also right at home. The Breadfruit, tucked neatly behind PastaBAR, Sens and the Turf, seemingly calls to me every weekend, but this past weekend, I finally answered.
While perusing the signature-laden menu, I felt the urge to enjoy something truly unique. Lucky for this old soul, the wait staff was more than kind to point my hankerin’ stomach towards the Sorrel. I’m going to be honest, when this deep purple something landed on the table, the air was instantly overwhelmed with ginger. Not a bad thing, but it was so thick that my mind instantly thought of Granny’s potpourri nestled in a crystal kitty cat jar. With images like that racing through my mind, I asked for a menu to figure out if I had gotten some voodoo, geriatric medicine drink. This crazy, dark concoction is wildly concocted with ginger (of course), Appleton Estates Jamaican rum, pimento and house-brewed hibiscus tea. Let me tell you, ladies and gents, this thing packs a spicy mule kick of flavor. Each sip is readily brimming with pulpy flavor and feels like it is topping your stomach off. I had to ask some friends to help me drink it since it filled and warmed my belly so much. That might be one of the few must-try drinks in town. Ya mon… I mean, ya’ll.
