Sunday Sessions

On a Friday or Saturday night, sliding into a nightspot as hot as Taste Ultra Lounge, 6910 East Shea Boulevard in Scottsdale, ain’t too easy, playa. Usually, the super-swanky, Asian-style drinkery is so swarmed with top-shelf trim and bar stars during prime time that the doormen ain’t gonna let your  $30K-millionaire ass in the door. Best to try and hit up the place during the more serene Sunday Sessions, where relaxed attitudes and mellowness reign supreme. Chillax amidst terra cotta statues to the turntable work of such DJs as Spencer Thomas, Chris Forsyth, LuJan, and others (all of whom will be spinning some house tracks on Sunday, March 30) and partake in some $2 Coronas, while prizes and giveaways are doled out. Doors open at 5 p.m. Call 480‑951-4466 or visit www.myspace.com/aztastevip.
