      Only 64 days until Arizona Renaissance Festival.
      :P neener! neener! neener! (or whatever the
      equivalent centuries ago might have been)...AzRF, weekends
      in February and March.<br><br>Come one, come all! We
      have a football stadium to build, gosh darn it! And we
      need YOUR tourist dollars! Visit often, rent vehicles,
      and have extended hotel stays! Rest easy in the
      knowledge that YOU'LL be paying for the stadium! Is my
      sarcasm showing, by the way? How about being facetious? I
      voted against it, but oh well, it's the will of the
      voters (<a href=http://www.azwins.com target=new>http://www.azwins.com</a> for info). I believe it's
      a Maricopa County tax, so if you come to AzRF and
      stay in Apache Junction or on site, you'll be in the
      next county and thus avoid the tax. :) Faire purchases
      wouldn't be affected, as it's mainly on car rentals and
      hotels, and also the faire site is in another
      county.<br><br>Come ye hither!

        been" joke. The original link in the post is not valid anymore.
        If anyone has the full list, I would like to read it.
