Garfields is located at 10123 E Apache Trail, (just east of Crismon on the south side of Apache)

Denim and Diamonds

A new country nightclub will be opening in East Mesa on Nov 9th. Denim and Diamonds will be at 7350 E. Main St. in Mesa, between Power and Sossaman in the Sun Valley Plaza.

It will be split into two rooms by a garage door, a traditional country bar with a dance floor and DJ on one side and a live music stage on the other.

I have not been able to find out any other information yet, I got most most of this from an article at AZCentral.

Thanks Sharon for sending the heads up on this.

Dancin’ Oldies

Even the old folks like to swing!

I made these from a pattern I got from The Winfield Collection. They stand about 5 feet tall.

Speaking of swing, this Friday night at JohnE’s, the Roadrunners are playing. This is a great husband and wife duo that play really hot rock-n-roll.
