But its time to give "swank" another chance, because Hotel Scottsdale's CeZar is redefining the word with its monthly Swank event. Turtle Productions and DMTV present a stellar club night featuring music by LuJuan and DJ Marc Anthony and drink specials by Tommy Bahama. At this rate, swank might soon become synonymous with class.
