[Cheap Thrills]

FRUIT GLEAN: Your trees are aching with fruit and when you say "grapefruit" everybody runs away puckering "no more." Pick that fruit, urban farmer, and bring it down to the Community Food Bank so they can add it to their emergency food boxes. Jean Fox heads up the Gleaning Program and she'll come to your house if need be, to pick and transport fruit. What she really needs, though, are volunteer pickers, so you might add the talents you've gleaned over the years to help CFB out during the citrus harvest. Take the fruits of your labor to CFB, 23 W. 27th St., or call 622-0525 for more information.

SICK SHOW: Comedian and musician Fish Karma hosts, The People Who Do That will do it, and so will a bunch of local and, oh no, California campus comedians. Attend SICK III, the UA's Comedy Corner blowout at the Social Sciences Auditorium at 8 p.m. Saturday, March 4, for $5, $3 for funny students.

POWWOW: Tribal People United, a UA American Indian group, hosts drum groups from Saskatchewan, Oklahoma, Washington and Montana in this intertribal pow wow beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 4. This traditional competition brings a wide variety of American Indians who will compete for $2,500 in drum prizes alone. $3 gets you into the pow wow, which boasts gourd dancing, flute contests, arts and crafts and other special events through Sunday, March 5, at the UA Stadium. For more information call 621-3835.

TOUR HUGHES: Yeah, right, you don't like looking in other people's houses as much as we don't. New on the National Register is Sam Hughes Neighborhood, east of the University of Arizona. Ten historic homes will be on display from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday, March 5. Buy $6 tickets beginning at 12:30 p.m. at Rincon Market, 2513 E. Sixth St. Park at the lot north of the market.
