We remember when "nightlife" at 40th Street and Indian School consisted of a run-down Taco Bell and a super-scummy dive bar. But now that the Arcadia neighborhood is suddenly sexy, there's a little scene happening at The Vig that we decided to tap into on Saturday, July 7. (Click here for more photos.) This hotspot had a steady crowd but wasn't nuts with people, which is exactly how we like it. And we also like the clientele fashionable, put-together and definitely easy on the eyes.
Inside, crews were hunkered in the booths, chowing down on the late-night menu while subtle socializing went on at the bar. Outside was where the rowdy ones kicked it so drunk they thought it was nice to sit by the fire pit in 100-degree weather. But the real party was happening on the bocce ball lawn, where everyone watched the competitors expertly handle their balls.
