Eat Me - Drink Me

What's the easiest way to get to Wonderland? Forget about slipping through the looking glass or diving down the rabbit hole, Alice, and instead get yourself to Acua, 7144 East Stetson Drive in Scottsdale, on Thursday, March 4. Inside, DJs Jared Alan and Brazilia will preside over the Lewis Carroll-inspired Eat Me-Drink Me, which will serve as an atmospheric aperitif to this weekend's release of Tim Burton's fantastical updating of Alice in Wonderland. In addition to a black-light dance floor, go-go dancers, and body painting, the surrealistically swank soiree will feature appetizer specials and two-for-one drinks until 11 p.m. Doors are at 10 p.m. with no cover. Call 480-949-9000.
