You've heard them rumbling by on the street or have seen them taking over the thoroughfares.

We're talking about the multitude of motorcyclists, hawg-heads, and weekend warriors that have invaded local streets with their steel steeds over the past few days during the buildup to Arizona Bike Week.

While there have been plenty of pre-parties, rallies, and rides over the past several days leading up to the annual event -- which officially began yesterday and involved thousands of riders converging on WestWorld in North Scottsdale -- things will really kick into gear this weekend as bikers celebrate all things motorcycle-related at events all across the Valley until Sunday night.

Here's a rundown of several bars and locations where you can get your motor running and live high on the hawg over the next few days.

Brigget's Last Laugh
Dirty Dogg Saloon

North Scottsdale is pretty bereft of biker bars, save for this colorful joint that's frequented by hawg-lovers and hotties alike. In addition to offering Bike Week drink specials and giveaways will be offered every day, a "Happy Hour Dragon Punch Contest" will take place nightly until Friday and features bottles of Fireball cinnamon whiskey as prizes. Dirty Dogg will also present its annual "Spring Fling Party" on Saturday, which promises babes, bikes, beers, and bands like Psychobilly Rodeo and Forgotten Saints. A free shuttle will also transport patrons between the bar and WestWorld.

Brigett's Last Laugh
There always seems to be dozens of gleaming steel steeds parked outside this North Phoenix watering hole, which is popular with both bikers and neighborhood folk both for its wealth of drink specials and nightly karaoke sessions. Stop by on Thursday for $1.75 well drinks until 6 p.m., followed by $3.50 flavored vodka cocktails until closing time. Friday features $3 small domestic pitchers until 6 p.m., and Saturday offers $3.50 Bloody Marys. Meanwhile, Brigett's barkeeps will pour Jaeger, Crown Royal, and Washington Apple shots for $4 each starting at 6 p.m.

High Octane Lounge
While this Peoria establishment is a bit far removed from the rest of the Bike Week action, it's worth making the trip over to the West Valley on your steel steed on Friday night for the Riding Hard party being put on by Gweedo Productions. Five different local bands - including the rockers of Property Six, Hollow, Cactus Chainsaw, and Cartoon Lion - will perform during the evening while a variety of drink specials and giveaways will be offered. The fun starts at 8 p.m. Admission is $5.
