Pavillions Car Show at McDonalds in Scottsdale Pavillions

Let’s go to the Pavilions – usual time, usual place. Bring a chair and a tall cold drink and mingle with your MINI companions while checking out some other pretty rad cars as well.

“Our club meets up at the Rock and Roll Car Show on the 3rd Saturday of every month and sometimes unofficially on other Saturdays. We are usually in the first and second row in the parking lot on your right as you come in the main entrance off Indian Bend.

We try to save as many spaces as possible, but if you do show up later, we will definitely try to find some room for you!”

Sunday Sweets at Gelato 64
Gelate 64, 2095 N. Dobson Rd. Chandler AZ

That means every time you come into Gelato 64 you will have the ability to sample 6 new flavors, four of which are gelatos and two of which are all fruit, dairy and virtually fat free sorbettos!

Our current featured gelatos are:
Pralines & Cream, White chocolate raspberry cheesecake, Root-beer float, Lemon cookie crunch, Snickers
