Insight Bowl 2009

For all you sports fans, the Insight Bowl is coming to Sun Devil Stadium on December 31, 2009!

Lucky for competing teams’ fans, too, because they’re from some pretty chilly places – Iowa and Minnesota, to be exact. Welcome to the desert! I’m thinking our 60-degree weather is positively balmy for you guys.  While you’re here, we hope you’ll take advantage of all the great stuff to do, including coming over to Mill Ave and coming to see the museum, ’cause there’s nothing wrong with a little culture in between games and parties (especially when said culture is Free!)

There’s a nice article here from Iowa’s Gazette Online of things to do while you’re in town, or just head to the Tempe CVB site for ideas, too.

For the locals reading this – all those people who’ll soon be wandering about in t-shirts and shorts aren’t crazy. They’re just football fans.

-Diane (who is only teasing, football fans!)
