First Friday, Crafeteria, and Santa Shenanigans Over the Weekend


First Friday and Crafeteria in Downtown Phoenix, 12/7/12 The last First Friday of 2012 included the second to last exhibition at Deus Ex Machina, Bob Adams' bright, youthful prints at Willo North, a new mural outside of Eye Lounge, and a collection of crafts and Christmas decor at Crafeteria at Medlock Plaza.

Santarchy 2012 in Scottsdale, 12/8/12 Although Christmas might be just over two weeks away, Santa Claus came to town this past weekend. As did Pimp Santa, S&M Santa, and Darth Santa, as well as an entourage consisting of countless sexy reindeer, dozens of drunken elves, and numerous walking holiday trees in tow.

This year's edition of the annual Christmastime, costumed bar crawl Santarchy took place on Saturday night and the turnout was enormous. More than 500 participants dressed in Santa suits and other holiday-inspired getups besieged multiple Old Town nightlife establishments - ranging from Giligin's and Martini Ranch to American Junkie and The Lodge - overwhelming bartenders and packing each place to capacity.
