A hole-in-one in family fun is what you will find at Golf N’ Stuff! The multiple mini golf courses and more has been a staple for Tucson families for over 46 years. It was once known as Golf N’ Things, but was bought by Golf N’ Stuff in the early 1980s. With many activities like miniature golf, batting cages, go-karts, laser tag, bumper boats, plus the arcade, you are sure to find an adventure for the whole family.
Do you like movies? I got a chance to listen to Donald L. Sparks talk about interesting facts about movies. Sparks is the first assistant director for some movies that you may have heard of such as “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” and “King Richard.”
In 2019, an estimated 792 movies were produced in the U.S. and Canada before the coronavirus pandemic affected the film industry. Moviemaking is a complicated process that takes time and effort which is often overlooked when watching the actual movie, although the people behind the scenes are as crucial to the moviemaking process as the actors. While watching a movie can be super fun, making a movie can be a little bit stressful.
This past summer, my family and I went to Australia to visit my grandparents on my father’s side! My grandfather is 92, and my grandmother is 90. The flight between Los Angeles and Brisbane Airport is 14 hours. When it is summer here, it is winter there.
Recently I went to the Tucson Museum of Art (TMA) with a friend. Going to TMA was fun and they had lots of interesting pieces. One of my favorites was a piece called “Interstellar.” It is a cool, mind illusion painting of a person in a poncho. It has a rainbow color pallet and lots of curved lines that makes it look almost like it’s moving. “Interstellar” is only one interesting piece among other cool and colorful pieces in the TMA exhibits. It was created by Alia Ali. Ali is a multi-media artist who has been to 67 countries! “Interstellar” has been on display since October 2021.
Extremely colorful, fun, rainbow, interesting, vibrant and splash of color! These are the words I’m using to describe the Crayola Experience in Chandler.
When I first entered through the door, a staff member gave me a bag with two silver tokens inside. The first thing I did was a coloring page of a police officer. There were tons of crayons farther than the eye could see. All those different colors reminded me of a gigantic rainbow.
Justin Willman and his Magic for Humans show performed at The Fox Theatre in downtown Tucson on May 21. The show opened with a magic trick involving wine bottles, then it jumped to videos. The first one was of him getting to the show to wow us with his magic, the second one was of him trying to teach his child how to do magic like him, except it went very wrong. His son hilariously started sharing some of his dad’s magic-making secrets!
Have you ever been to the Heard Museum? There are thousands of items on display there.
Marcus Monenerkit, Director of Community Engagement for the Heard Museum, had an interest in different cultures and diversity. “My dad traveled a lot and sent us postcards. When I got older, I still had the love. My father was a Comanche and my mother kept me connected with my father’s side. My grandmother spoke fluent Comanche.” Monenerkit started working at the Heard Museum in 1998.
