So if the title of this event isn't enough to get you interested, read on for the details. The Phoenix Phreaks Bike Militia is the Phoenix chapter of the national Freak Bike Militia. These are folks who love riding bikes and promoting alternative transportation. And, evidently, they love being freaks. Meet at the Firehouse tonight, Friday, August 6, at 7 p.m. to join a bunch of rowdy cyclists who aim to cruise through First Friday. Click here for more details.
Adam Carolla @ Tempe Improv
If you were a teenager in the '90s, you practically grew up with this guy. Remember Loveline? He and Dr. Drew are responsible for quelling all the fears and anxieties you had back in the day when you were losing your virginity and having really pathetic sex. And then The Man Show? Your college boyfriend thought that shit was hilarious. Now this smart ass comedian is all about the Podcasts and you can partake at the live recordings/comedy shows Friday, August 6 and Saturday August 7. Click here for more details.
World Series of Beer Pong Tournament @ Sandbar Mexican Grill
So everyone is really hot on this Bro Icing craze (including Jackope Ranch) but there's really no replacing our generation's finest gift to the drinking game genre: Beer Pong. This simple "sport" has stood the test of time and caused more American college students to hurl than any other contemporary drinking game. Saturday, August 7, watch the pros throw down for the World Series Tournament that could move the winner on to compete in Las Vegas. Click here for more details.
Summer Softball Splash @ The Wyndham
Do you hate duders, bros, and those assholes who play beer pong? No worries. We've got you covered. Head to this pool party in honor of the Phoenix Spartans, a softball team that's heading to the Gay Softball World Series this month in Columbus, Ohio. Music, games, prizes, cocktails and members of the Cactus City Softball League will be afoot on Saturday, August 7. Click here for more details.
A Tribute to The Wallace and Ladmo Show @ Tempe Historical Museum
You are a true Zonie if you remember anything about this show. Be proud if you do because it's something that is distinctly ours. Sure, it was a somewhat corny kids show but it's this kind of crap that provides a place with a sense of identity -- something everyone complains about Phoenix lacking. Join historians and other native Phoenicians to remember this important piece of our history. Click here for more details.
