In 1966, Chuck Mabery bought a cattle ranch that dated back to the late 19th century, planting the seeds of the Blazin' M Ranch. After stints herding and growing vegetables, the flood of 1993 forced the Mabery family to start over, inspiring them to show off their musical talents at a traditional chuck-wagon dinner staged on the property. Fully renovated in 2010, the ranch now hosts an authentic Arizona frontier town where visitors can experience the cowboy life through such activities as lassoing mechanical steers, shooting wax bullets out of a real Colt .45, and learning how to easily covert ten-gallon hats into metric. A selection of shops fits customers out in Western-themed apparel, the copper Spur Saloon serves local wines and microbrews, and a museum delves into the history of the ranch, pioneer-era Arizona, and the Yavapai-Apache Nation. An old-time photo studio, "Pistols and Petticoats", allows groups to have their likeness captured while wearing Victorian costumes. At the museum, the unique Wood'n West Gallery enthralls visitors with moving dioramas of Western life, hand carved over 30 years by a master whittler.

The rule of three is more than a spooky truth about celebrity deaths—it's also the body of law that governs comedic extemporaneity. In accordance with this rule, you'll laugh harder and be more attractive if you tell three, six, nine, and other multiples of three friends about today's deal to Jester'Z Improv Comedy Troupe. For $5, you get a ticket to see Jester'Z sidesplitting improvised comedy show on Friday or Saturday nights at 10 p.m.—that's less than the cost of a comedy movie, hardbound comedy book, or admission to the comedy museum in Cedar Falls. To avoid this common improv pitfall, print out this handy list of suggestions by clicking Print, located under the File menu in most browsers.
