Smashboxx Nary a single holiday goes by without the party hearty crew at Smashboxx throwing some sort of themed affair in honor of the occasion, and Independence Day 2013 ain't an exception. Two straight nights of drinking and debauchery are planned, starting on Wednesday, July 3, when onetime MTV mixmaster DJ Skribble keeps the dance floor primed with hip-hop mashups and progressive house while mixologists serve specialty cocktails. Eventvibe will host its Fourth of July celebration on Thursday night, which will star Scottsdale club scene regular DJ Jon Amaral. Doors open at 9 p.m., and there's no cover for either night.
Tavern on Mill There's no cover at either of the daylong Fourth of July parties that will take place at this Hayden Square spot, which should allow you plenty of cash leftover to nab some of the food and drink specials that will be available. In addition to its usual happy hour prices from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., the Tavern will serve $5 Red Bull and vodka slushies, $5 chili cheese dogs, and $5 barbecue chicken sliders on Wednesday and Thursday. DJ Bazar will also spin from 10 p.m. until last call.
