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.


Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
