As monsoon season fills the sky, don't stay hunkered down at home all weekend. We've rounded up Phoenix's top activities to keep you and your crew entertained (and dry).


Wurst Festival Ever

July 22

Short Leash Hot Dogs makes every day feel like National Hot Dog Day, so you can only imagine the celebration to be had this Saturday for the real deal. Local Phoenix restaurants and chefs will offer samples of their best creations all night in an attempt to be crowned the "Wurst Weiner" (and by "wurst" they mean best). Sip on cold beer, watch performances from local comedians, and witness a pun competition all while enjoying your new favorite frankfurters.
