    Urban 7's swanky atmosphere, hookah friendly environment and location in Old Town Scottsdale make it a great place to host the weekly event, Fashion Fridays. Unfortunately Fashion Fridays isn't much of an event at all. The evening does include a DJ and a pretty decent two for one drink special.

  • Superstar Billy Graham in Photos
    Graham, 67, is big, bald, and round in such a way that he resembles a balloon that has lost half its air.

  • Lady Gaga at US Airways Center
    For fans who were seeing Lady Gaga's Monster Ball a second time last night (for me, it was my third time seeing the singer), they definitely got a little something new. She closed out the show with a "Born This Way" performance reminiscent of her spot on the Grammys. She also performed a...
