Things to do this week in and around Mesa, AZ

Royale Theatre in downtown Mesa
The Royale is open!  Check out a quirky cult classic for a not-your-average night on the town.  Check out their website here or read this for more info. 

Hale Centre Theatre Shows
This theater in downtown Gilbert has a fun setup with seating 180 degrees around a circular  Currently, there's a Groupon to see their production of Little Shop of Horrors for $12--that's half off.  Also, the theater is showing Pinocchio for the young kids--prices are $12 for adults and $10 for children.  Great summertime activity.

Habit Burger Grand Opening Fund Raiser
Head to the newest Habit Burger location in Chandler on Sunday, July 17th from 12:00 noon - 2:00 PM.  100% of the proceeds go to Phoenix Children's Hospital.  Donate to charity and get a great meal all in one.  Sweet.  Habit Burger is located at 960 N. 54th St. in Chandler.

Winter in July at the Phoenix Zoo
Along with all of the other fun, enjoy snow at the zoo this Saturday, July 16th from 7:00 AM - 11:00 AM.  Two separate play areas, one for toddlers and one for older kids and several other winter-themed activities.  Snow activities included in regular admission.

Donate Back-to-School Supplies
Believe it or not, summer will end eventually and back-to-school supplies are starting to show up in stores.  I would love to get my first grader involved in donating school supplies to kids in need.  It's easy to pick up a few extra items and a backpack and donate to a worthy cause.  I found these back-to-school drives if you want to help too: Fox Sports drive for foster kids at Family Resource Center, Bank of America has drop-off boxes at locations throughout the valley, and Gilbert Fire Department's drive will continue through the end of the month. 

And if you are interested in learning more about natural eating and want to learn how to make sourdough bread check out Kami's class here.

And of course, check our summer guide for lots of other things to do.

Have a great week!

I followed the groupon link but couldn't find the tickets for Little Shop of Horrors. Does that mean they're sold out or am I missing them?

Yeah, I just checked, this page says they're sold out. :( Sorry!
