10 Things to Do This Weekend in Phoenix: Jan. 4-6
Sur La Table: Cooking Classes
From Friday through the weekend, store and shop Sur La Table offers hands on cooking classes for a variety of different incredible foods.
This Friday, guests can learn how to make fresh pasta. With the help of a Sur La Table chef instructor, the mystery of how to perfect such a dish is unlocked. The class will be paired with handcrafting noodles, complementary sauces, and a fresh thing to start out the year.
The best thing about the cooking classes is that there is something for everyone. Whether you're just wanting to learn how to cook, looking for a neat date night idea, or wanting to spend time with family in the kitchen, it's there for you to take part in. On certain nights, there is even a teen-cooking series for ages between 12-18 that encourage culinary creativity.

Memphis Grizzlies vs Phoenix Suns
The Grizzlies have made a huge step into the category of elite teams in the NBA and Western Conference. With the loss and trade of O.J. Mayo to the Dallas Mavericks, several questions were related to how much better they could get in just one season. To say the least, they've been awesome.
For Suns fans, this is another game that with a win could be the signature win that determine what type of team you have and build confidence as the long season unfolds. We've seen small glimpses of what could be with this young group; however, the Suns have to extend those plays throughout the entire game. Nevertheless, this is going to be a great game to see to kick off the new year.
