The kids may be back in school, but it's not too late to make the most of summer. Metro Phoenix has two different pool parties to help you beat the August heat this weekend.

Not ready to dive in? Try sipping on some wine downtown instead. If you're looking to jazz up the end of the weekend, there's a supper club perfect for warding off the Sunday scaries.

Here are four fun, food and drink-filled events happening around the Valley from August 11 through 14.
