Top 5 Things to Do This Weekend
David Spade @ Stand Up Live
We read somewhere that laughter burns calories. Get a humor workout when David Spade, the super sarcastic former Arizona resident (and resident funny man on Rules of Engagement), performs tonight at 7 p.m., and again on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $42.50 and available here.
Universatile Music's Reuben Martinez celebrates his birthday tonight at FilmBar with a handful of DJs spinning in the lounge, and a whole lot of abiding Dude in the theater. Arrive costumed (leave the bowling ball at home) and equipped with Lebowski-isms. See more details here.
|Arizona International Auto Show|
Get an early look at 2012 models, some of which will be available for test drives, from Ford, Toyota, and Hyundai. And don't miss drooling over the high-end roadsters, from Rolls Royce, Lamborghini, and more, in the luxury lounge. The event continues Saturday through Sunday, starting at 9 a.m. Tickets are $10.
Paula Poundstone @ Mesa Arts Center
Comedian Paula Poundstone returns to Mesa Arts for an evening of off the cuff humor, audience interaction, and off-the-cuff wit. Catch the Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! regular on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in Piper Repertory Theater. Tickets are $34 and available here.
Ornament Marketplace @ Heard Museum
Browse festive, handmade tree decorations with Native themes at the Heard on Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and knock out some non-mall gift shopping while you're at it. Admission is free.
