This Thursday, June 14th, is Yoga in the Park.
We got some great goings on here in the land of the PHX. Check these out….
Every Thursday night in June, July & August, from 6:30 – 7:30pm, you should bring your Yoga mats for the FREE All Ages Yoga Classes at Civic Space Park‘s A.E. England Gallery. (It’s inside, behind the walls where they hang the art. There’s a a huge room for things like this. Cool, huh?)

Oh! And bring a blanket, too. Cause afterwards, from 7:30 – 9pm, Walt Richardson will be playing a FREE concert. I’m assuming you know who Walt is–if you’ve lived in Phoenix metro for any significant length of time, you know, but just in case you don’t, check out his website at his link and this the 2000 feature article, “Harmony Grit“, from the Phoenix New Times.

This Sunday, June 17th, 2012, is Father’s Day.
Are you taking your father/grandfather on the FREE LIGHT RAIL this Saturday, the 16th, to the Van Halen Concert at US Airways Center? (No, no, not everyone goes free on the light rail. Just those going to the concert.)
If that’s not your speed, why not take dad/grandad to the Arizona Science Center (ASC) for FREE GENERAL ADMISSION, 10am – 5pm? Yep. Completely free. In honor of Father’s Day, the ASC is also handing out 200 family 4-packs of tickets to their upcoming feature exhibition of Raytheon-sponsored, MathAlive!

This unique exhibit debuted in March of this year at the Smithsonian and is “designed to excite students by making real-world connections between math and the activities students already love to do,” said Raytheon Chairman and CEO William H. Swanson. “Our goal is to engage and inspire today’s students to remain interested in math and science so that they have the opportunity to become the engineers and technology leaders of tomorrow.”
The Arizona Science Center is also participating in WIRED Magazine’s National GeekDad Day this coming Sunday. I get Wired. This Geek Dad issue was a great idea!
