This weekend has potential plans aplenty, Phoenix. Here are our top picks for what to do in and around the city.

Video Blender @ Phoenix Art Museum
"Will It Blend?" is the ongoing series of online videos by personal kitchen appliance manufacturer Blendtec in which CEO Tom Dickson gleefully wields their marquee products to chew up basically anything from an iPhone to a Justin Bieber doll.

Phoenix Art Museum gets in on the act with its own Video Blender on Friday, July 5.

Instead of pulverizing household products or promotional items, the night will be filled with award-winning short films, clips of vintage educational film strips, music videos, B-movie trailers, animation, and other experimental creative efforts. Will it blend? You can't really go wrong with a YouTube K-hole approach and a visual stew that will include the work of such oddball filmmakers as Michel Gondry, Jim Jarmusch, and Spike Jonze.

Video Blender cuts up from 7 to 9 p.m. at 1625 North Central Avenue. The preshow of '80s-era music videos and film snippets starts at 6:30pm. Admission is $7. Find more information at www.phxart.org/event or call 602-257-1222. -- Jose Gonzalez
