Sunday Afternoon in the Park

Okay, it wasn’t quite Georges Seurat’s A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte:

But we were in a park, Steele Indian School Park, an urban setting in downtown Phoenix. It’s really not the prettiest of parks and, in fact, I remembered it as prettier than it looked today but maybe it’s just waiting for springtime to come into its full glory. We decided we needed some exercise so we hiked around it for awhile.

We gained back the calories at Copper Star Coffee (http://www.copperstarcoffee.com/), a former gas station, also located in central Phoenix.

We had an urban, CenPho kind of weekend.  Last night we had dinner at Cibo, an urban pizzeria, formerly a beautiful old house (http://www.cibophoenix.com/cibo.html), followed by hearing The Brazen Heads, a Celtic rock band (http://www.thebrazenheads.com/ and http://www.myspace.com/thebrazenheads)at Rosie McCaffrey’s Irish Pub (http://www.rosiemccaffreys.com/index.htm).  The Brazen Heads always put on a fun, bawdy show and we’ve heard them several times.  Tony used to work with Liam and Steve.

Now the weekend is winding down (sadly).  Tony will be jamming at Mama Java’s tonight (http://www.myspace.com/mamajavascoffeehouse) and I’ll be trying to catch up on all the chores I didn’t get to before it’s time to head back to work.  I’ll tell you one thing–since starting to blog, I take way more pictures than before and I guess that’s a good thing.

Hope you had a great weekend!
