Club Candids

Now and Zen

This week, Club Candids decided to hit up our favorite pre-party place in Phoenix, Zen 32. The sushi restaurant has a late-night menu and stellar bar service, so we often make a pit stop there before heading out for the evening's real shindig. On Saturday, July 28, this swanky place had a lot of laid-back folks who were looking to chat with friends and get a little lubed. By midnight, however, the low-key vibe was quickly replaced with some subtle drunken rowdiness, and the social circles started mixing. (Click here for more photos.)

This time around, it was a little tough to tear ourselves away because the crowd was full of beautiful people amplified by Zen's pretty decor. Almost everyone had a classy get-up that kept us looking around the room for eye candy, rather than looking at the clock. With such irresistible attractiveness, we were late to our next drinking destination.
