Seven Places to Celebrate Leap Day Tomorrow

For those who aren't familiar with the complexities of the Gregorian calendar, tomorrow is certainly going to be unique. During Leap Years such as 2012, an extra day (February 29) is added to the datebook in order to balance out the eternal rotation of the earth around the sun.

Since it happens every four years, Leap Day has a bit of folklore and an aura of kookiness attached to it (hence that nutty 30 Rock episode that aired last week). Supposedly, it was once considered the only day when women can partake in "ladies privilege" and propose to men, as depicted in that execrable Amy Adams rom-com from a few years back.

It's also yet another excuse to party, which is what the proprietors few local bars and club are planning on doing with special fetes planned for the occasion.

Whiskey River Saloon
DJ Medik will be dropping Top 40, hip-hop, rock and dance hits all evening while the barkeeps sping 50-cent drinks until 11 p.m. The ladies can participate in all sorts of crazy contests and giveaways starting at midnight. Doors open at 6 p.m.

Graham Central Station
Running a little short until payday on Friday? No problem, as this four-room nightclub will b pouring $1.25 well drinks, house wines, and longnecks until 11 p.m. Ladies also have a chance to score $300 during the "Little Black Dress" contest. Doors open at 8 p.m.

Fort McDowell Casino
Various perks and prizes will be doled out to those lucky enough to have been born during a Leap Year and who are members of the casino's Fortune Club. For everyone else, free food will be available on the casino floor from 5 to 8 p.m. and local band The Whip-Its will perform in the Lucky 7 Saloon starting at 6 p.m. Admission is free.

Rhythm Room
The Pabst Blue Ribbon will be flowing at the Leap Year Partay, which will offer $1.50 cans of the hipster brew. Meanwhile, local musicians and performers Matthew Reveles, Bears of Manitou, and Bad Lucy will be feature on the stage. Doors open at 7 p.m. Admission is $5.
