Three revelers at the Scottsdale's Ultimate Block Party in 2010.

Craftsman Court
The entirety of Craftsman Court -- including such joints as Dos Gringos and Rockbar Inc. -- will be transformed into one gigantic fiesta dedicated to celebrating the ending of 2013 and the coming of 2014 for the annual Scottsdale's Ultimate New Year's Eve Block Party.
As with previous editions, there will be activity both out on the street, inside the bars, and on the large live music stage that will be set up for the event.

Country music star Jon Pardi headlines this year's music lineup, which also will feature performances by locals like A Boy Named Sioux, Tony Martinez Band, and Laura Walsh. Fireworks will go off at midnight and a number of food and beer booths and other vendors will also be there. Gates open at 6 p.m. Tickets are $15.

Fat Tuesday
If the Circle K Block Party along Mill Avenue doesn't fully satisfy your thirst for New Year's Eve shenanigans, consider attending the celebration that will encompass Fat Tuesday and adjacent Tempe spots like Handlebar, The Public House on Sixth, and the newly opened El Hefe. It's sort of a block party within a block party (no Inception jokes, please) that will feature a different sort of vibe.

A total of 12 bars will be serving both beer and booze and multiple DJs will be on the mixers throughout the night at every location. And the champagne will flow at midnight, of course, for a special toast. Gates open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance, $20 on the day of the event.

That is the lamest looking bunch of shit I have ever seen. It's almost ALL DJ's.

The NYE at Valley Ho was horrible last year. The food was hot dogs, drinks took 20 minutes, broken glass on the floor was left unattended, and negative attitudes from all the typical scottsdale personalities. Stay away, not worth price...
