​If you're done checking out Downtown galleries during tonight's Third Friday artwalk, want an excuse to check out some sweet skate gear, or need an opportunity to cool off this weekend, we have you covered: 

Big Lebowski Party @ Sail Inn Nobody throws a party like The Dude, and tonight, the White Russian slinging, bathrobe wearing, bowling fanatic will be honored at the Tempe dive bar with a screening of the Coen Brothers' 1998 cult classic film with a costume party, Lebowski-themed art, and more. Doors open at 7 p.m. Check the event page for more details.

Join + Cast Closing Reception @ AE England 

For a year and a half, local creatives Jennifer Campbell and Catherine Akins set out to find, collect, and curate the stories of Phoenix contemporary artists and the local contemporary art scene. 

The two released their book on July 1 and tonight will be the last chance to get an up-close-and personal look at work by a number of the book's 46 artists including Mary Shindell, Gregory Sale and Ellie Richards to name a few. See the event invite for more details. 

Street League Skateboarding DC Tour @ Jobing.com Arena 
The Glendale arena is bound to be a frenzy of kick-flips, ollies, and massive air this weekend with the invasion of Street League Skateboarding's DC Tour and national championship. The sponsored skate boarders will be at Jobing.com Arena Saturday and Sunday and will unveil Phoenix's new skate park, made possible by funding from DC boarder, Rob Dyrdek. Check the DC website for more details. 

Colored Water Throwing Festival @ The Firehouse 
The Firehouse collective is keeping things cool this Saturday with a water-themed group show, complete with a colored water throwing festival that they promise will get a little messy. The event, which kicks off at 1 p.m., is a potluck, a party, a dance event, and a great excuse to wear a crappy T-shirt. See the Facebook event page for more details. 

Adult Swim @ The Millenium Resort 
And to clean it all off with the help of a few waves and swimsuit-clad locals at the one-off of Jen Deveroux and Jared Alan's Adult Swim. The annual event will take over Scottsdale this Sunday with a daylong party bus from downtown Phoenix, local Djs, and plenty of drink tickets to go around. The party kicks off at noon. For more info, check out the Facebook invitation.
