The lovely Lady Santas of the Rhythm Room. Click here for a slideshow of the Party Crasher's weekend adventures.
There's a plethora of parties that go down each and every weekend in the PHX.
Whether it's hot DJ nights at Valley clubs, after-hours raves out in the sprawl, or house parties with kegs and local bands, this town knows how to get down.
Enter the Party Crasher. Since it's impossible to sample every single fete and fiesta, our nightcrawling investigator of the outrageous will be checking out the scene at a number of nightspots and off-the-hook hootenannies from Thursday until Sunday. Each and every Tuesday he'll be reporting back on all the action.
To wit: This past weekend, the Party Crasher peeped the vibe at the newly-opened nightspots American Junkie in Scottsdale and The Vintage Lounge in Tempe, and got plenty of face time with fired-up rockabillies and the lovely-and-large ladies of Club FullFilled.
American Junkie in Scottsdale.
The party crashin' started on Thursday as this investigator of the outrageous got the lowdown on Scottsdale's American Junkie. He'd heard about some wild time going on at the joint, which opened in late November. And the rumors were true...sorta.
American Junkie is an upscale bar/restaurant that's like an eatery, lounge, rock spot, and danceateria all rolled into one. It's a pretty raucous place that's a creation of the nightlife gurus behind Pussycat Lounge and Dirty Pretty, attracting both fashionistas in little black dresses and the white collar after-work crowd. There's a Wheel of Fortune-like contraption hanging above the circular bar, featuring a variety of different, er...outcomes.
