A man walks into a bar and asks the saloon owner to throw a fundraiser to benefit homeless pets. A bar patron overhears the conversation and offers to present a program of Arizona stories during a dinner/theater.
This is one version of what actually happened recently. The Palace Restaurant and Saloon will be hosting an evening of dinner/theater to benefit United Animal Friends (UAF) Thursday, November 1st, beginning at 5:30p.m.
Marshall Trimble, Arizona's Official State Historian, will present a program of colorful stories, cowboy songs, and humorous tales at 7p.m.
The cost of the dinner/theater is $40 (tax and tip not included) with $20 going to UAF. Dinner choices are Prime Rib, Stuffed Chicken Breast, or Salmon with salad and vegetable. A vegetarian dish will also be available. Drinks are not included in the ticket cost. Call 541-1996 for reservations.
In addition, there will be a silent auction of high-end items that were donated by local businesses and individuals. All proceeds from the sale will benefit animals in need.
Trimble's biography proclaims him as "one of the state's most popular speakers and performers. He's also an educator, lecturer, folk singer and stage performer.
"This multi-talented historian has been called the "Will Rogers of Arizona." He can deliver anything from a serious history lecture to a stage concert of Western folk music and stories with his guitar. Trimble appears frequently on radio and television as a goodwill ambassador for the state. For several years "Trimble's Tales" were heard on radio stations around the state."
The Palace is located, as one would expect, on Whiskey Row in Prescott.
