Things To Do Monopoly casino games?

β€’ Upvotes

Silly question - does anyone know if any of the casinos in the valley have a Monopoly slot machine game? A few months ago I was in Vegas and there were a bunch of Monopoly ones and those were my favorite. I didn’t see any at Wild Horse/Lone Butte so I was just curious if maybe any of the other casinos might have them.

Things To Do Are there any local independent movie theaters in the Phoenix area? Something similar to the Loft in Tucson?

40 Upvotes

Any places I could find that seemed remotely equivalent appear to be shut down right now. I'd really like a little local theater with events and independent movies and stuff, it was one of my favorite things in Tucson. Is there anything like that here?

Things To Do 2022 Holiday Lights Map - Request for Submissions

36 Upvotes

For the last two years I have been taking my father, who has dementia, to look at holiday lights around the Valley. To make it easy to map routes and know where I'd been, I hand-compiled Google Maps versions of the kinds of holiday lights maps/addresses shared by the New Times, AZ Central, individual submissions, and anywhere else I could find information. Each year I've spent a couple days around the holidays gathering, validating, and updating submissions to this map to plan my trips with Dad, but I also share it with this sub so you can do the same with your families.

This fall, my father has entered the last and worst stage of dementia, and this is almost certainly the last holiday season we will share with him. Once Dad is gone, I plan to move away from AZ again. As this is likely our last Christmas together here, and his dementia is in last-stage free-fall, I'm already thinking about how soon I can start taking Dad out to see the holiday lights this year. He's so easily entertained and amazed that anything with any effort blows his mind, so it's almost like seeing lights with a small child: overwhelming, joyful, and hard to put in words.

When I work on the map, I always start with last year's map. As soon as the papers publish their maps and addresses of holiday lights, I get to work on updating my map. As such, I will already have a lot of the most common and well known locations mapped: I don't need info about the Gilbert downtown lights, for instance - any changes there will be picked up by me as I monitor the news. Last year's map had 134 unique locations marked, so if it's a place that does a big show every year, it's a safe bet it's already on the map.

This year, I've already created the map to work with from last year's, but I thought I'd get a bit of a head start with contributions.

My ask: if you know of a house, street, or neighborhood in the Valley that plans to go all out with lights worth driving over to see, please share that here! If your destination has been around a couple years, it is probably already mapped (you can check previous maps in my linked posts above), but I welcome your validations that the traditions continue, or any updates on status changes on well-known and popular destinations.

If you know that you or your neighbors or your block is going to go nuts for the first time this year (or if you know that a well-known location is NOT participating this year), please drop that info here so I can get started on my map.

When my map is ready in Dec I'll share it with this sub once again, probably sometime around the second week in December, after local news sites have published maps and I've had time to make the changes to the Google Map.

I want to say that I'm incredibly grateful for the support and encouragement I've received from this sub in doing this the last two years: losing anyone to dementia is awful, but it has meant a lot to have this simple thing to look forward to and hang on to each year.

So, thanks for helping me do this for my dad for probably the last time. I'm a Phx native (SMHS 1992) and so was my Dad (WHS 1962) and bonding over local stuff has always meant a lot to us. Thanks for reading and TIA for helping out. :)

Hey r/phoenix! I'm going to be spending a little bit of time there over the Fall/Winter and would love to find a dance club that plays more indie/disco vs hip hop and top 40. Is there a venue or pop up event that has that vibe? Thanks!

Things To Do PSA: If you're going to Elton John tonight, go EARLY.

166 Upvotes

Had dinner with family before they went to the concert last night. We were just N of downtown on 7th Street. Traffic going to the concert was nuts. We left the restaurant just after 7 and they missed the start at 8.

From tickets...

Please note that Elton will take the stage promptly at 8PM as there are no opening acts. We strongly recommend that guests plan for extra time getting to the stadium and to arrive early to minimize the potential for delays. Leave your cash at home – credit or debit cards will only be accepted upon arrival into stadium lots.

EVENT DAY TIMELINE

9AM - Box Office Open

4PM - Stadium Parking Lots Open

6PM - All Gates Open

8PM - Concert Starts

EDIT: Considering taking the light rail from Sky Harbor if from the east. Possibly another park and ride from the West/North if you're coming from that way.

EDIT2: There are park and ride lots near Camelback 19th/Ave and at Camelback/Central.

I'm thinking about going but probably won't have anyone to go with, just wondering if anyone/s would like another in their party. I'll obviously buy my own ticket and all that, just would like someone or someones to chill with before it starts.

For what it's worth I'm a man in my early 30's.
