“The new Barbie Movie is being released the same night as the July G3 so we thought what the heck… C’mon Barbie, let’s go Party!”

G3 Tucson is hosting a Barbie Premiere Pink Disco Party at Playground. Dress up in Pink or a Barbie/Ken-inspired look because they’ll be “dolling” the Playground up in “sickening shades of pink and mirror balls with a disco soundtrack and special pink drink options.”

Sounds like a blast, right? From 5 – 7 p.m., they’ll have a Malibu Beach House Happy Hour Mixer and then from 7 – 10 p.m., the Barbie Pink Disco Dance Party kicks in. $9 gets you into the party and your first drink is free.

Monster Sonoran Hot Dogs

1439 S. Fourth Ave.

What’s it going to be? Pink hot dog buns? Pink tortillas? An in-person Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling meet-and-greet? You’ll just have to wait to find out. The Sonoran hot dog joint is expected to announce what they’ve got cookin’ up sometime this week.
