Happy New Year! Have a ball, er, sprinkle.
See you in 2011.
Save your napkins, envelopes and scrap pieces of paper, because DOODLES is looking into what you're drawing while you're supposed to be doing something else.
Warden's doodle is the last in our series, which means we'll be kicking off our largest (and perhaps craziest) project yet. Check back tomorrow for the first of 365 Ideas. Here's the skinny:
Feel free to send us your own, or someone else's. We're ready.
|Screw you, hangover!!!|
As we bid farewell to the year and look ahead to 2011, Jackalope Ranch contributors will bring you some greatest hits from 2010. Today we're taking a look back at a few local art happenings that caused a stir in the scene ...

1. Chaos Theory 11 at Legend City Studios
It takes some serious organization and planning to put on a show with more than 50 artists in a downtown space. But give them one day to install their pieces before the doors open and the scene is best described as chaotic. The Chaos shows are always a huge happening, and this year's one-night event was no exception.
2. Arizona Creatives Take on Sydney
In May, local artists Angela Ellsworth and Claudio Dicochea and Enrique Chagova packed their bags and flew across the world to show Australia what was going on in Phoenix at the 17th Biennale of Sydney, an enormous and important art extravaganza. They even took with them writing powerhouses Tania Katan and Deborah Sussman to virtually share their experiences. Bless the Internet and this creative place we call home that totally kicked ass, globetrotter-style.

This week: The Moon Over Manhattan at Kazimierz World Wine Bar
If there's a reason we're going out for drinks in Old Town Scottsdale, Kazimierz World Wine Bar is it. Live entertainment, plush couches and cute bartenders aren't the only reasons we love this bar; It's the cute bartenders that will gladly hold our hands through the extensive wine list and invent on the spot high quality cocktails to fit our personal liking.
The Moon Over Manhattan is a new take on an old-world classic Manhattan. Moon in the name signifies the cocktails main ingredient--a rare moonshine-esque white whiskey that takes this classic cocktail (and your buzz) to new heights.

Written and drawn by Tristan Jemsek, the Jobot barista and longtime musician (who's a member of Uggamugga, Dogbreth, Trough, and the first incarnation of Father's Day, just to name a few of the, like, 100 bands he's in) goes a bit esoteric in his debut "book," as he calls it.
It's not a book at all, and to call it that is a wee bit pretentious. Or maybe it's a joke we're not in on. In any case, the key to enjoying Jemsek's 2012 Survival Manual is to lighten up, dude.More »
