Downtown Phoenix Journal weekly recap

DPJ_artwork_crop[Source: Si Robins, Downtown Phoenix Journal] — As autumn (ahem… cooler temperatures) rolls in, Downtown Phoenix is gearing up for some great events over the next few weeks.  Coming up this weekend is Local First Arizona’s Certified Local Fall Festival, and with 60+ great local businesses representing the 602 (plus live music, food and all kinds of fun!), it’s a great way to discover something you may not have heard of, or rediscover one of your old favorites.  Speaking of discovering some cool local businesses, the folks at Haus Modern Living are putting together the first-ever TwitterHunt, set for November 12.  With 12 of our favorite places tweeting away clues for prizes, DPJ couldn’t be more excited.  Still want to discover more? We talked with local painter Kyle Jordre about his unlikely entry into the art world (and Downtown Phoenix, for that matter) and visited the Link, one of the hubs for the upcoming GreenBuild Expo festivities.  If you think we should be covering any aspect of living in Downtown Phoenix, let us know by sending an e-mail to editor@downtownphoenixjournal.com.
