So, how was your November? You probably did the Thanksgiving thing with the family, watched tons of football, and got into it with other Black Friday shoppers in order to nab the biggest deals. As for the Club Candids crew, they spent the past month celebrating Day of the Dead, hanging out with ASU football fanatics toasting what was shaping up to be one of the team's better seasons, bidding farewell to The Lodge in Scottsdale, and going ham to drum 'n' bass with kandi kids, all while rabbing snapshots of each of these experiences.

Here's a look at the 25 best photos they shot while out and about.

Dance of the Dead at Apollo's

The DJs of Tongue Tied and Motown on Mondays joined forces to honor the dearly departed and celebrate the living during the Dia de Los Muertos-themed Dance of the Dead party on Saturday, November 1, at Apollo's Lounge. It was a spirited affair with Catrinas, ofretas, and sugar skulls in abundance while as Roya and Funkfinger spun dance hits and retro tunes inside the bar and Tricky T and Pickster One dropped throwback funk and soul out on the patio.

Rooftop Lounge and Patio in Tempe

The hustle and bustle of Mill Avenue's weekend party scene takes on a different perspective from three floors up, which is something the Club Candids crew learned while hanging out at the high-style Rooftop Lounge and Patio on Saturday, November 8. We also got caught up on the latest gossip, gained insight into just how passionate Arizona State University students are about their beloved Sun Devils, and discovered which dance tracks are getting rumps bumping these days.

The Lodge's La Adios Fiesta

Scottsdale joint The Lodge made like the mythical Sasquatch and disappeared completely from the Old Town scene last month, as it closed its doors and headed for a new home in Tempe. Before switching off the lights, however, the staff at the cabin-like bar, nightspot, and eatery is closing its Scottsdale location and is moving to Tempe, but not before throwing an enormous two-night farewell celebration on Saturday, November 15, and Sunday, November 16, called La Adios Fiesta. Many of The Lodge's regulars were on hand for its big swan song, getting in a few final rounds and raising a toast to their favorite spot.

C.A.S.A. SunBá in Tempe

After Arizona State Univeristy's football squad blew out the Washington State Cougars, 52-31, on Saturday, November 22, at Sun Devil Stadium in a big come-from-behind victory, marron and gold fans were naturally in the mood to celebrate. Many headed for C.A.S.A. SunBá just off Mill Avenue, where they tend to but on a big spread on game days, including serving up live bands, DJs, and countless rounds of cocktails in the bar's signature plastic mini-buckets.
