Over the Weekend: Labor Day parties, Lucha Libre and Splash Bash

By Jonathan McNamara

We said goodbye to Summer (yeah right!) in style this weekend. Check out the plethora of summer themed parties. And just in case that isn't enough, we've got a few shots from a Lucha Libre. Is there a better seasonal send off than a bunch of burly dudes in colorful spandex? ...we'll get back to you on that one.

Three-day Weekend Throwdown: Chez Nous, Saddle Ranch, Home, and the Mondrian

Labor Day weekend meant some of the last big fetes of the summer, as well as three days and nights of pure, unadulterated partying at various nightspots and hangouts around the Valley from Friday, August 29 until Monday, September 1.

Splash Bash Girl's Party at Hotel Clarendon

It was girls only (including members of the Phoenix Mercury) at Hotel Clarendon's pool on September 1, 2008.

Lucha Libre at The Sets

Forget slim jim munchin' macho men or that stone cold crap, Lucha Libre got down to business with luchadors like Super Raton and Fantasia el Exotico on August 31, 2008.
