A pair of patriotic partiers from Independence Day 2012.
For some folks, the Fourth of July is a chance to celebrate the birth of 'Murica and feel a swell of old-fashioned jingoistic pride. For others, it's merely an excuse to set off Roman candles and watch things go boom.

Needless to say, fuses are far from the only things that will be getting lit later this week, since the midsummer holiday will afford many in metro Phoenix the opportunity to go wild out without having to worry about reporting to work with a hangover the size of the Liberty Bell.

Although some will do their imbibing while chilling and grilling at backyard soirees or at big-time public events, many will hit up some of the multitude of Fourth of July fiestas and nightlife events happenings at local bars on Wednesday, July 3, or Thursday, July 4. Here's a rundown of a dozen such events in Tempe, Scottsdale, and elsewhere where you can let off some sparklers or simply let off some steam.

El Hefe
Don't be surprised if songs from Team America: World Police are spun up by DJ Diesel between club bangers during El Hefe's Independence Day affair on Wednesday, July 3, since it boasts the subtitle of 'Merica, F*ck Yeah! The party will also feature $150 bottles of Ciroc for big spenders, as well as more economically priced specials like $50 Veuve Clicquot after midnight and $4 Pineapple Mind Erasers all evening. Oh, and probably a few patrons cracking "Hans Brix" jokes. The party starts at 9 p.m. and there's no cover.
