Wednesday's Weekend Wishlist for Aug 4-7

Wildflowers don't stop in Flagstaff, even in August.
Well, it's Wednesday again.  The day best known for keeping your weekly calendar from being laterally symmetrical, and for making Meredith blush and giggle in 1st grade phonics when it was sounded out as Wed-Nes-Day and had a drawing of a bride and groom to emphasize the "wed" sound.  

And because without further help, reading those tidbits would be literally the most interesting part of Wednesday, here's a roundup of things to do this weekend.  And by "weekend," I mean Thursday to Sunday…because we can't exclude Friday-eve or Sunday Funday from the mix!

The Valley

It's first Friday and time for the Phoenix Art Walk!  First Friday includes a self guided gallery tour of over 70 galleries--map and trolley schedule here.  If you're more interested in the established art, the Phoenix Art Museum is free from 6-10 on First Friday, as is the Heard Museum--a premiere Native American Museum.  Or if you're more into First Friday for the scene, check out Roosevelt Row.
