05:55 pm - Haunted Houses
We'd like to go to a haunted house sometime this month and are looking for reccomendations. We're located in Chandler and the ones that we've found around here are Alien Extreme (http://www.alienextreme.com/), Arizona's Original Scream Park (http://www.azscreampark.com/) and The Nest (http://www.frightened.com/). If you've been to any of these please let me know what you though and if you have other places to reccomend, please do!
There are 6 of us so far and we are looking for something that is really scary and NOT geared to kids. We are ages 22-25 and would like some that we can do for a couple hours.
Thanks a bunch!

In leu of the normal Newsletter we would send out today, I am sending a much condensed message
First, the not so good news:
The Essenza Coffeehouse is closing. Of coarse, this means that the last ever Essenzaslam Poetry Slam at Essenza Coffeehouse will be this coming Thursday, October 5th. Please consider joining us for this milestone of art in the Greater Phoenix Community. The Essenzaslam Poetry Slam has been a staple of the poetry community in Arizona for 12+ years. We certainly will not be going out on a low note, as we will be having the Kuter's Interplanetary Haiku Championship with a special guest host, John Kofonow of Flagstaff. The show starts at 8PM, and runs until we decide it's over, or you go home I guess. Please try and show up to say goodbye, relay your stories, and hang out one last time at the little coffeehouse in the strip mall. Please make sure that you send this on to any of your friends or family that may have ever gone to one of the slams, as a feature, or as something to do on a Thursday night, or as someone that read on a regular oe semi regular basis. Don't assume anyone already knows, because if they miss it, well, it's not like they can come back next week...
1350 S Longmore, Mesa
(480) 461-0445 for directions
In the meantime, take a moment to call Essenza and express your support for them in this obviously challenging time. If you can't be there in person, and have a message you'd like read, send it to me- firstname.lastname@example.org, and provided it is not too longwinded, we will see about reading it to the crowd. Also, look for updated info on the website on Wednesday night.
In carrying on...
As sad as this week is, we have been looking to the future for a long time, and The Greater Phoenix Poetry Slam is a big part of the future. Congratulations to the slam on receiving a 2006 Phoenix New Times "Best of" Award! Special thanks go out to Acott Sanders, Harmony and Aura Nelson, without whose unfailing support and patience would have never let this event get off the ground. We have 9 spots for the October Slam, and you can register online at http://gpps.anhology.org

It's about 20 minutes
Necrmancer still open...
Boy oh Boy, we need poets- who wants $250? How about $100 for second? ot $50 for third?
It's two days of awesome slam all at The Paper Heart-

07:05 pm - need some advice
I'm getting transfered to Phoenix and I've got quite a few questions.
I've never been there (I currently live in Tennessee), so I was wondering if anyone could give me the heads up on the best areas of town to live in?
What housing rental companies are good?
Is there a good punk or hard rock music scene?
What's the price of gas right now?
What does a pack of smokes run?
What banks are in town?
Also is there anything else I really should know before I get there?
I've got alot of questions, but I don't want to annoy everyone. So I'll end it there. 80)
many many thanks in advance!
