WALNUT CANYON NATIONAL MONUMENT &
1899 BAR & GRILL


Walnut Canyon was established as a National Monument in 1915, to preserve numerous cliff dwellings located along the limestone ledges of this deep canyon. Evidence of human use of these dwellings can be traced back 2,000 years. The presence of water in this dry land made the canyon rare and valuable to its early human inhabitants. It is a beautiful and interesting place to explore, and a great escape from the heat of the Valley. We enjoy lunch on self, before heading into the Canyon, at the 1899 Bar & Grill in Flagstaff. This fabulous restaurant took home the much coveted Best of Flagstaff 2017—for best outdoor dining, best fine dining, and best overall dining—the triple crown! The lunch menu is moderately priced, offering burgers and sandwiches, homemade soups and fresh salads. *This trip is offered in conjunction with TJ Travels.

TAD PRESENTS: PROJECT PRESLEY -
A SALUTE TO THE KING


Chance is a multi-award winning “Elvis Presley Tribute Artist” with more than 25 years in the “Elvis Entertainer Business.” He has been a part of the Elvis Presley phenomenon since the late 1980s, when he was first discovered in Southern California by non-other than Bill Medley of the musical super duo “The Righteous Brothers.” Chance is also alumni of the award winning Las Vegas celebrity look-alike production shows, LEGENDS IN CONCERT, AMERICAN SUPERSTARS and SHOWSTOPPERS LIVE! His secret is believing it’s not so much the voice that is most important, but it’s knowing how to become the man himself on that stage! It’s basically the attitude of Elvis Presley. Shy but confident…knowing exactly what he’s doing! Chance isn’t ‘Rich Little’ or ‘Jimmy Fallon’ doing a ‘spin’ on Elvis Presley. He’s Chance Tinder, the actor, recreating a character – much like actor ‘Joaquin Phoenix portraying ‘Johnny cash,” or entertainer/actor ‘Jamie Foxx as the great ‘Ray Charles.” Through all of Chance’s experiences in show business, none has given him more gratification and fulfillment than paying tribute to his childhood hero, the legendary “KING OF ROCK ‘N’ ROLL – Elvis Presley!

PETRIFIED FOREST NATIONAL PARK & TURQUOISE ROOM


Fred Harvey civilized the American Southwest by introducing fine dining and impeccable service to railroad travel. Harvey developed and ran the hotels and restaurants of the Santa Fe Railway that grew into a hospitality empire. Built in the 1920’s in Winslow, Arizona, La Posada is the last of the great railroad hotels, and a fascinating tour all unto itself! We’ll enjoy lunch on self, at La Posada’s Turquoise Room. James Beard Award winning Chef John Sharpe oversees the dining room, considered to be the finest restaurant in the Four Corners region. Don’t let all these accolades fool you—lunch menu prices at the Turquoise Room start at $7 and top out at $18. After lunch it’s back on the bus headed northeast to Petrified Forest National Park, which is located in the greater Painted Desert—they are not two separate parks. While the Painted Desert encompasses about 1500 square miles, the park is about 150,000 acres—and not desert! The natural world of Petrified Forest is far more complex than it seems on the surface. Located near the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau, the park is part of an amazing geological region which includes a Rainbow Forest of colorful petrified wood. We’ll also enjoy a scenic loop tour, as we make our way back to the Valley through Arizona’s magnificent Rim Country. This is going to be a fantastic tour! *This trip is offered in conjunction with TJ Travels.

TONTO NATURAL BRIDGE & EL RANCHO


We’re heading for Payson to explore Tonto Natural Bridge State Park—home to the world’s largest travertine bridge. This natural arch stands over a 400 foot long tunnel that measures 150 feet at its widest point and reaches a towering height of 183 feet, presenting a beautiful and dramatic sight. The Tonto Natural Bridge was first documented by David Gowan, a Scotsman, who discovered the location in 1877, while hiding from hostile Apache tribe members. He was so moved by the beauty of this site that he persuaded his family to emigrate and make this area their home. They lived near the bridge until 1948, and their lodge building still stands and is listed in the Register of Historic Places. We’ll stop for lunch on self before heading into the park at El Rancho, named by Arizona’s Highways one of top 25 restaurants in the state. El Rancho’s been serving traditional Mexican food, along with some American favorites, for over 30 years and locals voted them the “Best Margarita in Town” and “Best Mexican Food.” They offer a great little lunch menu with affordable specials.

REGIONAL ROAD TRIP - PACIFIC NORTHWEST

Feel like taking a Regional “Road Trip”?

The Grand Café is ready to take you on a culinary “road trip”, up to the Pacific Northwest, on Thursday, October 18, 2018, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.

Get your tickets, pack your taste buds, and begin the evening savoring an artisan bread baguette with whipped butter. Then, enjoy a sockeye salmon filet, (wild-caught from Alaska), cedar planked, perfectly seasoned and baked, served alongside Idaho mashed potatoes, and a Northwest-style mixed vegetable blend. We finish off the evening’s journey with a fresh-baked Washington State inspired apple dumpling, just like Grandma used to make, served ala mode if you wish, and as always, one beer or wine is included with your multi-course dinner.

This is an advance purchase event, with the $25.00 per person ticket available either online or at the Activities office. All of our “Night Out” dinners do sell out quickly, so don’t miss the chance for your palette to “hit the road” with us!

SCG Drama & Comedy Club presents...

"Suite Surrender"

a farce by Michael McKeever

OCTOBER 18-21, Evenings at 7:00 P.M., Sunday Matinee at 3:00 P.M.

The Year- 1942.

The Event- "A Night of a Thousand Stars", a benefit to support our soldiers in WWII. The luxurious Palm Beach Royale Hotel is under siege as two of Hollywood's biggest divas vie for the same suite. Mistaken identities, overblown egos, double entendres, and one pampered lap dog round out this fall-down-laughing riot of a comedy. An all-out love note to those wonderful farces of the 30's and 40's.

Purchase tickets at scgdrama.com or at the Activities Desk (Open M-F, 9:00 A.M. -4:00 P.M.)

CIMARRON NIGHTCLUB - DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH, A TRIBUTE TO NEIL DIAMOND
MATINEE ADDED!

 Due to the quick sell-out of the three evening performances for this popular show, we're adding a Matinee performance. This will be the first time we've done a Matinee at the Nightclub and of course the room cannot be darkened. But the show is a high-energy professionally choreographed production paying homage to Neil Diamond. Neil recently announced his retirement from touring, but his legend will live on with this great tribute show. With a back-up band and accompanying video show, Greg Ansel truly brings the songs to life. It's a hand-clapping good time and a wonderful opportunity for those who don't drive at night to experience a Nightclub show. Tickets may be purchased online at www.scgrandmusicclub.com or www.grandinfo.com. Also available at the Activities Desk at Sonoran (open M-F; 9am to 4 pm)

"The Game's Afoot"

Written by Ken Ludwig

November 29, 30, December 1 at 7pm & December 2 at 3pm

It is December 1936 and Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry. But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, tyhe festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous. Then it's up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona ofhis beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears. The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit set during the Christmas holidays.
