There are "bars in Scottsdale," and then there's Pranksters Too, the younger, yet significantly more sizable brother of Prankster's in Tempe. With its spacious rooms (we counted four) plus a giant patio, Pranksters Too draws a crowd that includes everyone from middle-aged truck drivers to sorority girls to skateboarders.
Of course some of this diversity was, no doubt, in light of Snakeburner, the live talent for the evening. The group of white twentysomethings got the crowd jumpin,' jivin' and even slow dancing to a rowdy set of predominately old soul covers including Ray Charles, Sam and Dave, and (naturally) the Jackson Five.
See how all the action went down in our Club Candids slide show.
