Phoenix New Times and First Draft Book Bar present New Times Live!—a chance to interact with the characters, subjects, and authors of the alternative newsweekly's cover stories. For a long time, metropolitan Phoenix felt like a paint-by-numbers canvas that had been ignored around the middle. Today that’s not the case—the hottest real estate on the market is smack in the center of town. Blink, and that emerging neighborhood you had your eye on is suddenly out of reach. Tonight’s panel has combed the not-so-mean streets of our city to find eight neighborhoods you might not have heard of—and that you definitely need to know more about. While we’re celebrating these gems, we haven’t forgotten the implications of gentrification and urban development. So we’d like to invite you to be part of the discussion of how Phoenix is developing—what neighborhoods have it right, which are on the wrong path, and what can we do to preserve the past, respect current residents, and create a vibrant future for our city. Happy Hour specials all night!
FREE PARKING / LIGHT RAIL
There is plenty of free public parking west of Changing Hands Phoenix, at 400 and 444 West Camelback. Additional free public parking across Camelback to the south.
Don't want to drive? Take the Light Rail! It lets off at the Central Avenue/Camelback Park-and-Ride, which has hundreds of free parking spaces across the street from Changing Hands.
Look for your host Sherry and her Meetup signs in the First Draft Book Bar.
Not an official HSGP Meetup, but another chance for socializing and good conversation.
