Clickjab Westling Fan Fest Brings Pro Wrestler Legends to Phoenix

Amy Dumas (a.k.a. Lita) is scheduled to appear at the Clickjab Wrestling FanFest on Saturday, July 19, at the Phoenix Airport Marriott.
When Chris Click traveled to New Orleans earlier this year, it was probably one of the best trips of his entire life. It had nothing to do with Bourbon Street, beads, or even Mardi Gras, mind you, but rather the world of pro wrestling.

In April, the 42-year-old lifelong wrestling aficionado and Tucson resident made a pilgrimage of sorts to the Big Easy, and not only got to attend this year's WrestleMania, but also an separate, independently produced fan event called WrestleCon. Click got to meet and interact with a slew of legendary grapplers -- including Bill Goldberg, Bret "Hitman" Hart, and Adam "Edge" Copeland -- and had what he called a "fantastic time."

It was such a blast, in fact, that it helped Click, a concert and events promoter, decide that Arizona should have a wrestling fan convention of its very own.

We need to talk about privilege, Phoenix.
From workshop discussions to cutting edge theatrical experiences in and around Phoenix, here's what to mark on the old planner this week.

The Perks and Perils of Privilege

Everyone knows it's different strokes for different folks. But what if your view of the world isn't so much about where you come from as it is what you come from? At the ongoing workshop series The Perks and Perils of Prvilege, ASU Project Humanities looks at how individual experiences dictate social or political choices from voter and marriage rights to immigration and healthcare. In these workshops, participants will share, learn, and reflect on the experiences that guide both the complementary and the contrasting choices of others.

Scorpius goes Flashback Friday this weekend.
Welcome to the weekend, Phoenix. From a limited-run dance performance and comedy to hip-hop-inspired art and derby dames, it's going to be a busy one.

Catwalk... I Love Duran Duran

The 1980s were a magical time. You could buy leg warmers without visiting an American Apparel. New episodes of The Cosby Show were being made. And Simon LeBon's babe status was unquestionable. Scorpius Dance Theatre revisits the era with its summer production of Catwalk... I Love Duran Duran.
