You’re welcome to dance, eat a plated dinner, enjoy a drink at our cash bar, and witness a stunning presentation of a Native American father and son hoop dance, symbolizing sacred formations of nature, ancient customs, and cultural expressions of their time-honored traditions.

    Come dressed to match the natural beauty of the Sonoran Desert, with semi-elegant turquoise and copper – in your choice of dress, sundress, or top and pants. Jewelry, especially items consistent with the history of the region, is encouraged. Men, dress in a related fashion – in turquoise or copper oxford shirts, optional tie, and dress pants.

    The evening promises to be unique, remarkable, and unforgettable. Not to be missed!
