Independents Week Pub Crawl
Friday, July 3
In case you didn't already know, this week is National Independents Week, the annual weeklong celebration of local businesses. And to help celebrate, Local First Arizona invites you to support some of your favorite independently owned bars during the Independents Week Pub Crawl in Old Town Scottsdale. Stops will include Brat Haus, Craft 64, 5th and Wine, Hula's Modern Tiki Scottsdale, and RnR Scottsdale; each location will offer a $4 drink special. The event is open to those 21 and over and is free to attend (aside from drink prices, of course), though you'll want to reserve a ticket. For more information, check the National Independents Week Pub Crawl Facebook page.
