Whether you're planning to cackle along with Kathy Griffin or cheer on the Suns when they take on the Lakers this weekend, we suggest squeezing in some room for these picks, too.

5.Bobby Fresh Fashion Show @ 910 Live If, much like the Workaholics sitcom trio of Adam, 'Ders, and Blake, you contend that you gotta be fresh, Bobby Fresh's third annual fashion show, featuring streetwear from the designer's spring 2012 line, will be right up your squeaky clean alley. Ill Will and 2Tone Da Superstar will man the mic during the evening, which will feature music from DJ Fresh85 and a performance from hip-hopper Casey Veggies.

3. Body Art Expo @ Arizona State Fairgrounds Get tatted, admire piercings, or compete in kooky contests that will decide which attendee has the hottest ass and best fresh ink. Artists will be on hand to pierce, draw on, and mod your bod.
