Phoenix, get out. There's too much to do and see this weekend, between Phoenix Comicon at the Convention Center, Paul Rodriguez at Stand Up Live, and a sure-to-be cool downtown mural tour. But you've gotta choose. Here are a few of our top picks for things to do in (and around) the city this weekend. For more, check out the New Times calendar.

Caribbean/International Flag Party @ Brick
We know very few people who get excited about flag day (and even fewer who know when it is), but throw out the words "flag party," and suddenly people start listening.

The Caribbean American Phoenix Carnival Cultural Association of Arizona, also known as CAPAZ, is bringing back its Caribbean-style carnival this month with a weekend of parades, masquerades, and over-the-top costumes.

Of course, since every festival deserves a good warmup, CAPAZ will kick off the caribbean celebration with a good old-fashioned Flag Party. The party goes down at 9 p.m. Friday, May 24, at Brick and features live soca artists and DJs, including 4Play, DArk Vader, Ziah, Skilzz, Illmatic, and more.

Wear, wave, or wrap yourself in the country of your origin (or simply the one you find most appealing) and get ready to party in a way the United Nations has only imagined. -- Katie Johnson

URGENT! Listen people, Joe & I are calling on all of the Phoenix valley --- this is very important. KIDNAPPED dog that we are determined to FIND! Today there was a 6 year old Boston Terrier stolen in a home invasion. So far Irongloves has raised $500 Reward Money for the return of little April. Her name is April because she was found wondering the streets in April infested with ticks. Her adopted mom Julia has been looking everywhere for her, her heart is aching. Her neighbors are looking everywhere with Julia. PLEASE, stop in to donate money tomorrow, try to give at least $20. I will keep your money safe with your name attached, in the event little April is not found, your money will be returned right back to you. If you cannot stop in, then call me to make a pledge. Please, even $10, give any amount you can. We need to get it up to $1000, I know $1000 will bring out anyone from the dark cracks. Remember, if we don't find April, then you'll get your money back... ask yourselves isn't she worth the gamble? Here is the story as reported on Channel 10 News. God Bless Marc Martinez (the original reporter of the story). Sincere Thanks you to all of you! Renene Leinhauser/Irongloves Boxing Gym 480-777-9170
