The best part of the weekend is having freedom to play, but sometimes not having enough cash can get in the way.

Of course, we have a solution...How does free sound?


Toys R Us is hosting a free Pokémon trade, collect and build event from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, November 11th.

Kids can trade with other Pokémon collectors, plus they’ll get a free collectors album, a free Jangmo-o foil card and a buildable Mega Construx Poke Ball.

There’s more!  The first 50 to show up at each location will get a free Togedemaru figure!

And parents, we aren’t leaving you out!


Toys R Us is also hosting two parents night out events on November 12th and November 30th from 8 to 10 p.m.

Parents can eat snacks and drink hot cocoa while they see toys demos to help decide what you want in your home and what you want to avoid.


Are you looking for even more adult fun!

Hand Cut Burgers and Chophouse in Scottsdale is celebrating its one year anniversary Friday night from 5 to 7 p.m.

What does that mean for you?

Free appetizers, live music and a hosted champagne bar!


The weather is perfect to visit the Desert Botanical Garden

So go this upcoming Tuesday and avoid the $25 admission fee.

It's free every second Tuesday of each month.


You can also visit the Phoenix Art Museum for free!

You don't have to pay if you go on Wednesdays 3 to 9 p.m. so get your culture on!

And don't forget there are tons of free food and events for veterans all weekend long.
