Raven Events

Impress your date with these events. Raven Events are some of the hottest in town. Not only fun events, the crowd it draws is the crowd you want to be in.

Raven Events was founded in 2003, by the Valley’s leading ‘social butterfly’ Raven Valdes, and quickly found success in providing the Phoenix/Scottsdale area with some of its most memorable gatherings.

Raven Events creates, promotes, manages and hosts a variety of upscale, classy events which appeal to the more sophisticated yet fun-loving crowd from all over Phoenix and Scottsdale.

The parties presented by Raven always involve fabulous entertainment and great live music.

Sunday in Paradise November 8

This Raven event is the best way to spend a relaxing Sunday afternoon – live music, friends and beautiful scenery. The seating is first come, first serve at this popular event where there will be 1/2 off bottles of wine, delicious food, spectacular mountain views and a great crowd!

No charge to attend and the attire is casual. Musical entertainment, will be the talented Lee Perreira, a rising independent artist hailing from Arizona who combines classic blues riffs with a soulful textured vocal style instantly capturing the enjoyment of his audience.

Now that it’s cooling off, seating will extend out into the patio and courtyard. For those interested in watching the game, there will be a big screen inside the Jade Bar during the event.

FourSquare Romantic Date Ideas

FourSquare is a popular phone app where users can vote up their favorite destinations. This allows FourSquare to compile lists of the favorite spots that are just right for you.

This time FourSquare has compiled a list of 15 of the most romantic date spots. Mirage has whittled them down to our favorite two on their list:

La Grande Orange Grocery & Pizzeria

La Grande Orange, located in the Arcadia district, is a hidden gem. You are going to feel like a real insider when you find this place. Just saying the name makes you sound so smart, especially if you say it with a French accent.

The ambiance is comfortable, the crowd is upscale and relaxed. The food is of the highest quality.

Expect to find the food to be gourmet, gluten free, mostly non-GMO and delicious.

This might be the place to begin your date. Part restaurant, part upscale grocery, get a bite and then a bottle of wine to take with you. This is the spot to get gourmet cheeses and snacks, fine wine, micro brewery beers and more.

Don’t be confused, this is a restaurant. And one you are going to love.

Desert Botanical Garden

The Desert Botanical Garden is designated as a Phoenix Point of Pride. The site is a botanical garden designed to encourage an understanding, appreciation and promotion of the uniqueness of the world’s deserts, particularly the local Sonoran Desert.

The Desert Botanical Garden opened in 1939 as a non-profit museum dedicated to research, education, conservation and display of desert plants.

Your visit will bring you closer to this desert we all love. Stroll arm in arm and enjoy how the light plays on the rocks and foliage. A perfect way to get away while still staying in town.

The Desert Botanical Garden is home to many native birds. Keep your eyes out for hummingbirds, woodpeckers and owls. If you listen closely you’ll hear the native Curved-billed thrasher while ever-curious and personable Cactus Wrens sing along.

Steal a kiss while hiding behind foliage. A perfect chance to take in the wide expanse of the desert and the amazing assortment of desert adapted plants and animals.

The Dandy Warhols  

David Bowie became a fan of the band after seeing them play at the Glastonbury Festival in 2000. He then personally selected them to play at the 2002 Meltdown festival.

The Dandy Warhols combine elements of 1960’s garage rock, the then-popular BritPop genre, and some of the earlier shoegaze music approach. The middle of their career featured a more commercial, polished sound, abandoning the garage rock of the previous album in favor of a more psychedelic and Britpop-influenced power pop sound. Recently they favored a return to the psychedelic, guitar-oriented rock of their earlier career.

Media darlings, they have been featured with a theme song for the American cult television show Veronica Mars and an appearance in The O.C. They were included in a downloadable song-pack for the Xbox video game Dance Dance Revolution ULTRAMIX 4.  The Dandy Warhols were even the subjects of the 2004 documentary film Dig! In 2007, the band recorded the song “Good Luck Chuck” for the 2007 film of the same name.

See the Dandy Warhols perform at one of Phoenix’ newer concert venues, the Crescent Ballroom.

Collective Soul  

The Atlanta-based band has been at it without pause since 1994. They have sold upwards of 10 millions albums of what is often considered easily digestible, radio-friendly fare.

From their break-out single “Shine” to “December”, “Gel”, “The World I Know”, and “Run”, Collective Soul has turned out hit after hit of standard rock numbers, from the power-chord driven to the ballad. As musicians, Collective Soul make no bones about being anything more than a guitar band, so it’s hard to hold their reliance on riffs and crunchy noises against them.

Enjoy Collective Soul at Tempe’s Marquee Theatre.

Spade received an Emmy nomination and two Golden Globe nominations for his role as Dennis Finch on Just Shoot Me!.

Steven Wright

Wright is an American comedian, actor, writer, and an Oscar-winning film producer.

He style is distinct in that he speaks in a lethargic voice and very slow. His delivery is deadpan. The topics he covers range from ironic, philosophical and sometimes nonsensical jokes to non sequiturs and one-liners with contrived situations.

Famous for paraprosdokian, a figure of speech used often in comedy. The technique is employed when the second part of a sentence changes the meaning of the first part. Wright might quip, “On the other hand, you have different fingers.”

He has performed both on TV and in film. Some of his accomplishments include a spot on:

  • Desperately Seeking Susan (1985) as Larry Stillman D.D.S.
  • Reservoir Dogs (1992) (voice only) as K-Billy DJ
  • So I Married an Axe Murderer (1993) as Pilot
  • Mad About You as Paul Buchman’s film assistant
  • Natural Born Killers (1994) as Dr. Emil Reingold
  • The Swan Princess (1994) as Speed (speaking voice)
  • The Larry Sanders Show (1994) as himself

Catch Wrights hilarious comedy at The Showroom At Talking Stick Resort.
