New Times Back to School Pub Crawl On Friday night, the Phoenix New Times threw a Back to School Pub Crawl at Tempe Marketplace. Bar patrons crawled their way through the Thirsty Lion, Kabuki, Dave and Buster's, San Felipes Cantina, and finally, Cadillac Ranch. Along with the complimentary drinks participants in this poker-themed crawl received playing cards at each venue. Those left standing at the end of the night, compared their poker hands in hopes of winning the grand prize - a free trip to Las Vegas. Nothing like squeezing in one more vacation before the school year. More New Times Pub Crawl photos here.

Read the full story about Go Topless Day and see more Topless Day photos.
