Hearts & Bones - A Valentine's Photography Show at Gypsy Bar, 2/9/13
Love is a quite multifaceted thing, to say the least, not to mention being extremely complicated. So it stands to reason that any artistic exhibition focusing matters of the heart, as well as the related topics as sex and relationships, would be equally complex and varied. Such was the case with Hearts & Boness, a Valentine's-themed photography showcase that took place at Gypsy Bar on Saturday, February 9, and featured the works of 40 different artists from around the Valley and delved into love, lust, and licentiousness.

 As usual, Phoenix New Times media reporters miss the cool happenings around the valley.  TONIGHT, a REAL Mardi Gras party at the Ragin Cajun (8040 E. McDowell, Scottsdale) will happen from 8:00 p.m. to Midnight (remember to STOP at Midnight as that is when Lent and Ash Wednesday starts).  The Hurricajuns, the Valley's only Zydeco/Cajun band will perform from 9:00 p.m. to 11:59 p.m.  Lots of Cajun dancers from Meet Up.com will be there and great New Orleans food.  The place is themed on a Southern Bayou and you can even snatch up a little alligator.
