Walking is for plebes. (Why waste your precious drinking energy by hoofing it?) Here are some top-shelf options for getting around Scottsdale:

Limos
Any simpleton with a C-note can hire a limousine to schlep to and fro. But a 40-foot-long SUV that's rolling on 60-inch tires? That takes chutzpah (not to mention serious chedda).

Mirage Limo
813 N. Scottsdale Rd.
480-970-7700

Almost two-dozen options are available for rent, including Hummers, Escalades, and a vintage 1939 Rolls-Royce.

URBAN SPRAWL

Worth venturing out of Scottsdale for: the monthly First Friday art walk extravaganzas, where thousands of artists, musicians, and other imaginative types mass along Roosevelt Row and Grand Avenue in celebration of their creative efforts. Esteemed galleries such as Five15 and eye lounge exhibit some of the more stunning works than their neighbors, while Perihelion Arts offers stylishly lowbrow and genre-defying pieces.

Head away from the hipster hullabaloo and you'll encounter nightlife aplenty, including Steve Rogers' mini-empire of gorgeously elegant danceterias steeped in sophistication. The recently opened Sanctum is a cathedral-like club featuring a darkly Baroque interior design mixed with Pagan influences that's similar in spirit to his pulchritudinous Goth parlor Palazzo.
Sanctum: 4343 N. 7th Ave., Phoenix,
