A safe space. That's what the Boys & Girls Clubs of the East Valley give to more than 43,000 kids each year. But along with keeping kids out of harm's way after school lets out, the Boys & Girls Clubs enrich children's lives though their programs. Kids get creative in arts classes, learn social interaction and fitness skills in sports programs, and prepare for the future with technology courses that ensure they won't buy stock in companies that only produce floppy discs.
But the Boys & Girls Clubs impact kids beyond afterschool care. In addition to the East Valley clubs having the first Arizona club to serve a Native American community, the clubs' Ladmo branch has Mona Dixon, who was named National Youth of the Year for the Boys & Girls Clubs of America in 2010.
Her path of success, encouraged by the Boys & Girls Clubs, led her from a girl homeless and worried about her family's survival to a young woman with a full ride to college and named one of the Top 28 Most Influential Black Women in America by Essence magazine.
Fat Tuesday has achieved the impossible dream of bringing authentic bayou eats and Mardi Gras libations into the swamp-free lands of Arizona. Sample their transported tastes with snappy appetizers such as the alligator nuggets, shipped fresh from New Orleans before being breaded, fried, and served with a Cajun remoulade ($9.95), or the 10-piece hand-breaded shrimp, slathered in sauces that range from mild to mildly indignant ($7.95). For the main meal, try the Tuesday burger, a half pound of seasoned ground beef cooked to order accompanied by an entourage of tongue-lashing Cajun fries ($6.75). Fat Tuesday's ice-crowned claim to fame is the daiquiri menu, showcasing 25 sweet, potent deliriums. Obliterate boring tipples with a large barrel of Banana Banshee, concocted from creamy banana and coco liquors ($7.75), or challenge mortality with a medium Triple Bypass, in which tasty cherry flavors collide with vodka and grain alcohol ($6.50).
