This cycle-centric shindig invites all bike riders to congregate for free beer and barbecue at Daley Park in Tempe from 2 to 6 p.m. Saturday, December 11. And since it's hosted by those crazy kids atT.B.A.G.
, there will be some wild winter games like the tall and small bike jousts, the princess bike death race, the huffy toss, and grass polo. Yep, it's like that. Clickhere

Obscura's Xmas Aglow Party @ Rips Ales and Cocktails
We've seen a bunch of fliers for this party...some say it's a holiday blow-out, others say it's a Tron-themed shindig. All we know is that it's gonna be big, people (so big that we covered it on Up on the Sun as well). So get nuts on the dance floor as glow suits and santa suits collide on Saturday, December 11, starting at 8:30 p.m. Click here for event details.
It's a festival. And it's dedicated to one thing: Tequila. Do you need to know anything else? Suck it up Saturday, December 11, and Sunday, December 12, where tequila vendors galore will provide tasty sips of some of the best tequila in these parts. Then soak it up with food by local Mexican food restaurants. Click it uphere

34th Annual Indian Market @ Pueblo Grande Museum
It just wouldn't be a great weekend if shopping weren't involved. So head to this market where over 200 (dang!) Native American artists will sell their traditionally-made wares Saturday, December 11. You can also expect hoop dancers, music, and some delicious NatAm food. Freakin' yum. Click here for more details.
THREAD Holiday Pop-Up Shop @ Icehouse
You may have already read about this but we say it's well worth a slot on our Top 5 list. THREAD is only one of the best indie fashion events to ever hit town and, therefore, you'd be a real lame-o if you missed it. The thing kicks off Sunday, December 12, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Show up for shopping from over 100 indie designers, DJs, free massages, gift bags, and we even hear there's going to be an ugly sweater-themed photo booth. Whatever that means. Click here for more info.
