Movie and a Dog
It’s not your imagination – there are practically no dog-related events in metro Phoenix during these blazingly hot days. Probably because it is not fit for man nor beast out there right now.
But if you are going stir-crazy in the house, there’s always the stalwart Urban Beans Monday Movie Night. The central Phoenix coffeehouse/restaurant is showing “City Island’’ this Monday. Cartoons begin at 7 p.m.; movie starts at 7:30 p.m.
I admit I had to Google “City Island’’ to refresh my memory. It stars Andy Garcia as head of dysfunctional Bronx family who gets shaken up by the arrival of an ex-con. IMDb gives it 7.4 out of 10 rating.
I don’t have to Google Short Leash Hot Dogs which sets up at Urban Beans on Movie Night. Short Leash is yummy-licious and worth dragging yourself out of the house even on the hottest of nights.
Looking for another dog-related movie outing? There’s always the drive-in theater in Glendale. It’s the only left in the Valley and it is currently showing: Brave and The Avengers (love The Avengers!) Technically, dogs are not allowed at the drive-in but that rule is almost never enforced.
