The QIA is home to weekly classes, dances, and a place to get some fairly good grub cheap. Roll in on Wednesday evening and you can stuff yourself full of pancakes and the usual trimmings that go along with them. But the cooks also offer a weekly special – the opener this year was pork roast (a big sellout), and of course, you can expect plenty of gobbler late this month. As to education, classes range from hobby type activities, to helping you learn to use your computer more proficiently, maybe even pick up a new language.
During the season, plenty of evening shows, many musically based, come riding into town. No, these aren't all second-rate 'mom and pop fiddle scrapers,' either. For the last several years groups like The New Christy Minstrels have sold-out repeatedly. And if you're feeling like sitting for a show might cause you to need to get up and exercise, there's plenty of that going on with daily exercise classes, and line dancing.
So where do you tap into this information? The QIA set up a new website this year, with plenty of informational function. Check out the website at www.qiaarizona.org.
