Phoenix things to do: 10 things to do this weekend around the Valley

We're wishing the Phoenix Mercury the best of luck as they take on the Minnesota Lynx in the WNBA Western Conference Finals. Go Mercury!

 

Do you love to try new dishes and use new ingredients? Phoenix Cooks! may be the event you don't want to miss. The Valley's best chefs come together for one day to "wow" your taste buds and spice up that cookbook. Phoenix Cooks happens Saturday at the Westin Kierland resort in Scottsdale.

 

If you like to shred it on a skateboard, the Red Bull Curb Kings contest is coming to CityScape on Friday. Skate around in an urban setting and put your best moves forward to potentially win some cool prizes.

 

Jason Mraz brings his tour to Comerica Theatre on Sunday, if you're looking for a concert to go to this Labor Day weekend.

 

Since it is the Labor Day weekend, please remember to never drink and drive.
