Our night started with getting stuck on Central Rd in downtown Phoenix in a lot of traffic. It was the classic car Cruise on Central car show. Once we finally got to New City church, Christin, Roberta and I walked over to the Lux coffee bar. Lux is an open coffee bar with lots of space and nice furniture (leather chairs) mixed in with some art. Next door is Pane Bianco, one of Chris Bianco’s infamous pizza establishments. I really enjoyed the spacious seating and atmosphere of Lux. They also serve great coffee and are into latte art like most places. I personally have been wanting to get better at making latte art.
The band, Dearspeak had a CD release show over at New City church. They had 6 other bands open for them, including my friend Mat Weddle. It was a night of storytelling as they wanted each of the bands to share the story behind their music. I personally enjoyed Brothersisterband and the guy playing a saw with a violin bow. They also had an artist by the name of “Sentrock” display some of his artwork.
