Pulling off the nightlife is some tricky business. Even though you repeatedly hinder cell regeneration with booze and nicotine, you must remain eff-able. That means feigning youth, faking health, and masking bar odors. Without such strategies, it’s a fast road to the land of being a scary, washed-up clubber. You’ve seen her — the wretched, sloppy drunk lady at the end of the bar. She rudely reminds partygoers of their own mortality and spoils all the fun.

Motivated by such fears, we felt it was high time for us to buy some products to help hide our hedonistic ways. So we dared to emerge during the daytime for Lush’s Rave Party on Saturday, May 10. The shindig for the Scottsdale cosmetics store wasn’t the party we’re typically used to, but it smelled damn good, and there were some pretty wicked glow-stick bracelets. We loaded up on soaps and scents and then headed home for a disco nap.
