First Friday, Polo Party, LIGHTS, and RAREaffair Over the Weekend

Horses & Horsepower Polo Party
The Horses & Horsepower Polo Party brought out Scottsdale's horse, car and over the top hat fanatics on Saturday at Westworld of Scottsdale. (Note: No sign of Prince Harry.)


Friday's rain didn't stop crowds from flooding Downtown galleries during First Friday. Artists James Angel, Melanie Corradi, Corrine Geersten, Steve Hofberger and more displayed their work along Roosevelt Row and Grand Avenue.

When Canadian electro pop artist LIGHTS, the project name of Lights Valerie Poxleinter, came to the Nile Theater for a headlining show last year, it was clear the crowd loved her, but for all her talent in unifying her fans under one roof, it wasn't clear that LIGHTS believed in herself as much as the audience did ...

On Saturday, close to 800 beer lovers soaked themselves in suds at the RAREaffair, the premier event thrown by the Beer for Brains Foundation this year. Held at Talking Stick Resort, this no-limit food-and-drink-tasting event featured more than 75 beers for sipping. While some brews were decidedly NOT rare (Sleepy Dog Wet Snout? Phoenix Ale Camelback IPA? For god's sake, a Blue Moon beer was on tap), the available suds were, for the most part, pretty epic.
