Don't waste your weekend, Phoenix. Yeah, we know, the new season of Arrested Development is alllmost here and you just really want to re-watch all the other episodes like three times before May 26. But! That would be a huge mistake, because you'd miss out on the slew of cool things to do these weekend. Here are some of your top options.

Season Opening Reception @ Mesa Contemporary Arts
Get your fine art fix when Mesa Contemporary Arts throws a bash in celebration of its most recent exhibitions -- including the brand-spankin'-new show, "Arizona Catalyst: Artists Working in and Beyond The State," on view in the North Gallery.

The free reception takes place from 7 to 10 p.m. Friday, May 10.

Silence: Comedians on Storytelling @ Space 55
Comedians Jamie Sanderson and Steve Marek present an evening of storytelling, along with Dan Hull, Myke Dehu, Kirk Buckhout, Joy Young, Genevieve Rice, Sam Haldiman. The show gives the Phoenix-based jokesters a chance to ditch the classic setup and punchline in favor of delivering true, well-crafted tales that aren't constructed to get chuckles. Listen in on Friday, May 10, at Space 55. Admission is $5.

Really disappointed to miss the beer event in Scottsdale this last weekend but it was really early.
