Five Kickass End-of-School-Year Parties in Metro Phoenix
It's time to cue up some Alice Cooper since, you know, school's out for summer as of Wednesday as Arizona State University and other institutions of higher learning in Metro Phoenix.
Melissa Fossum A few ASU students celebrating the end of the semester at last week's Undie Run.
Once you sell back the armload of textbooks and say adieu to the profs, you might want to use your newfound cash and free time for drinking and celebrating.
Good thing that a few bars and nightlife establishments in Tempe, Scottsdale, and elsewhere have the same idea. Here are five of them:
Benjamin Leatherman One of the drink mistresses at El Hefe in Scottsdale.
The raison d'être of the "School of Ciroc" party taking place during this week's edition of El Hefe's White Girl Wasted Wednesdays on Wednesday, May 8, is direct and to the point: "One last rager before you go home for summer." Helping fuel the soiree will be such specials as $4 Yukon Jack Red Hot shots, $4 Pineminds, and $6 Ciroc cocktails all night. Bottles of Veuve Clicquot also will be $50 after midnight. The party starts at 8 p.m. and there's no cover.
