The Milk Carton Kids

Great show at the Mesa Arts Center. They must get tired of being compared to +Simon & Garfunkel but then again, they were great and so are these "kids".

Did we mention that we will have 8 breweries on the tee boxes of Troon North Golf Club for the 2nd Annual Craft Beer Golf Classic. The prizes to win are significant too, including a Caddilac. Support a great cause as a golfer, sponsor, donor or join us for dinner! Good karma all around: https://goo.gl/XtSCq7

Your brain on caffeine and more interesting findings.

Every Tuesday and Thursday morning for a year and a half, Russell Poldrack climbed into an MRI machine and scanned his brain. He explains why.

Port Brewing - Santa's Little Helper

A bit pricey for a 12oz bomber but still quite good. Not as much bourbon as I prefer but not too sweet making it a well a balanced imperial stout. Love the label.

A bit dated and in need of a renovation but you can't beat the location and views if you are a golfer.

Good food but the service was sub-par. Not a collaborative wait staff. If you get a bad server, no one else wanted to help out.

Some of the best views in the Phoenix area and many options for hiking. Love how remote this area is.

A very unique spot in town for entrepreneurs and start-up businesses. The businesses in this incubator have access to high-skilled experts and resources that will make their business successful. Quite impressive. This is a great model for all business incubators.

A big space but the sound system is not great. Waited 45 minutes to get our first drink order. They have some bugs to work out.
