Page 2 of 2

El Hefe The raison d'être of the "School of Ciroc" party taking place during this week's edition of El Hefe's White Girl Wasted Wednesdays on Wednesday, May 8, is direct and to the point: "One last rager before you go home for summer." Helping fuel the soiree will be such specials as $4 Yukon Jack Red Hot shots, $4 Pineminds, and $6 Ciroc cocktails all night. Bottles of Veuve Clicquot also will be $50 after midnight. The party starts at 8 p.m. and there's no cover.

Gringo Star Bar Arizona State students and grads are more than welcome to attend the grand opening of Gringo Star on Thursday, May 9, and get their first taste of its urban-art-meets-arcade setting, not to mention all the street eats and librations that will be served by its staff. Freddy "DJ Circle" Krems will be in the mix during the establishment's debut and all of its games will be ready to play. Doors open at 11 a.m. and the music starts at 9 p.m. No cover.
