Alymelo's Sandwiches at Astor House

Craving an All-Amerian meatball sandwich on your Friday night? You're in luck since this Friday you can catch Alymelo's Food Truck & Catering from 5 to 9 p.m. at central Phoenix's Astor House. The food truck offers a selection of creative meatball sandwiches and sliders from a Mexican Meatball Sandwich with chorizo and creamy chipotle sauce to a Greek Meatball slider with lamb and tatziki. Wash either down with Astor House's famous gin with house-made tonic and you're kicking off the weekend just right.

Glendale Watermelon Festival

The city of Glendale hosted its first Watermelon Festival back in 1949 and this weekend the old-timey tradition - that's been suspended for the last few decades - is back. Catch the melon madness on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Murphy Park in Glendale's historic district. The event will revive many of the traditions from the original event including a beauty pageant to crown a Watermelon Queen, melon eating contests (naturally) and a beer garden. Admission is free. For more information visit the Watermelon Festival website.
