Happy Independence Day, blog readers! And to Emil Franzi: Happy Birthday, you Yankee Doodle Dandy, you!
A few events to consider checking out today:
• The Loft Cinema is presenting the Team America: World Police Sing-a-Long tonight at 6 p.m. Plus, cold beer and hot dogs on the patio before the show! A mere $5.
• The Tucson Sidewinders are back in town! The Triple-A champs wrap up the first half of the season with a five-game homestand against the Las Vegas 51s beginning tonight. After the game, the ’Winders will present a star-spangled fireworks show. What could be more American than that?
Tomorrow is buck-beer night out at Tucson Electric Park, while Friday will feature a bonus fireworks show if you don't get your fill tonight. On Saturday, they'll be giving away beach towels and on Sunday, hot dogs are a mere dollar.
Go see the Sidewinders--while you can!
