10 More Back-to-School Parties in Metro Phoenix

The college crowd is typically flush with cash at the start of the school year, often because of overly generous parents or one of those soon-to-be-regretted student loans. But trust us, the money doesn't last. Your bank account may seem loaded in late August, but things will get scarce by the time midterms roll around, particularly for those who are over 21 and plan to imbibe before, during, or after classes in the weeks and months ahead.

It probably would be best to stretch things out a bit. And we recommend starting as early as possible, like by availing yourself of any of the copious drink and booze deals that are being offered by some of the bars and nightclubs in Tempe and Scottsdale that will be hosting "Back to School" parties and other special events in your honor starting tonight and up until this weekend.
