'Bag It Up

It’s easy to spot the beast known as the Douchebagus scottsdalia while traveling the wilds of Old Town on any given weekend. Simply look for their standard adornments of popped collars, fake bake tans, and spiky hair.

Avoid trying to corner the Douchebagus, however (as it tends to puff out its chest and start shouting “Step off, bro!” when threatened) and instead head for their usual nesting spot over at Smashboxx. The curious creature will be in extreme abundance inside the club on Friday, June 1, for the annual Douchebag Party, which will also serve as a fundraiser for the Valley’s Imaginations charity.

You’re likely to hear their usual mating call of “How you doing?” during the affair, which will feature patrons dressed as douches while dancing to house music spins from DJs Tranzit and Michael James. The party will also encompass the neighboring Dollhouse, where she-jay Missy Sparks will be in the mix all night.
