The power of a good party never ceases to amaze us. Not even triple-digit heat can stop the droves of drinkers from spending Friday night on the patio at Dos Gringos in Scottsdale. While it was tough to tell whether it was sweat or just an over-active misting system, but there wasn't a dry shirt in the house. No one seemed to mind it one bit.
The crowd at Dos is generally more diverse than one would expect in Old Town. On this particular occasion there were more fake mustaches than fake breasts and at least one senior citizen (who spent most of the night grinding his date on the dance floor).
