For the Patron Of The Arts
Downtown Scottsdale Artwalk is held every Thursday. This is a fabulous way to locate just the right piece to give to your deserving friends/family this Christmas. Scottsdale ArtWalk is much like a large, easy-going open house for the Scottsdale Arts District located primarily along Main Street and Marshall Way in Scottsdale Downtown. “America’s Original ArtWalk,” this weekly gathering takes place every Thursday evening (year-round, except Thanksgiving) between 7 pm and 9 pm. That’s when member galleries belonging to the Scottsdale Gallery Association (SGA) open their doors to the public and show off the work of the Southwest’s outstanding artists. More information here.
For the friend who has everything
We all have these friends. The ones who don’t want us to buy them anything because they don’t “need” anything. Buy them a beer at The Rusty Spur Saloon, a Scottsdale destination. Celebrities like Clint Eastwood, John Wayne, Vince Vaughn, and Jennifer Anniston have walked through its swinging doors to take in the Old West décor and Scottsdale live country music. It’s located right on Main Street in Old Town Scottsdale. Look for the cowpoke in the red shirt with his lasso. Kick back and wait to see who comes through the door. The gift isn’t the beer, it’s the memories. Visit their website here for more information.
