CRAP Ride

Tempe Beach Park : 7:30 p.m. every Tue.

Ending a group bike ride at a restaurant is kind of like holding a hotdog in front of a fat kid on a treadmill. It offers incentive, makes the experience more fun, and leads to the replenishment of all burned calories. Excellent. Tempe’s weekly CRAP ride expands on that idea, bringing... More >>

Tejano Thursdays feat. DJ Stixx

Karamba : 9:00 p.m. every Thu.

Polka, Selena, and vaqueros.

Torch Theatre's Cage Match

The Torch Theatre : 10:30 p.m. every Sat.

Hidden House : 8:00 p.m. every Sun.

Live Bull Riding

Buffalo Chip Saloon : 7:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. every Wed.

The charm of watching drunken bargoers take their turn on a mechanical bull wears off quickly.
