After six years, Cadillac Ranch, the little bit country, little bit rock 'n' roll bar and restaurant in the District at Tempe Marketplace, is shuttering this weekend.
And as you might expect, the hangout for ASU students and general party hounds into Southwestern pub grub, endless drink specials, and entertainment like dancing, live music, and riding a mechanical bull, won't be going out quietly.
"72 Hours of Pure Crazy" comin' up.
Cadillac Ranch's last bash will consist of three days of revelry starting tomorrow, Thursday, October 31, with its sixth annual Haunted Hoedown. On Friday, November 1, it's the Day of the Dead Masquerade Ball. And on Saturday, November 2, the flyer reads like this:
"Help us celebrate six amazing years as we say goodbye to this iconic hot spot. Live band performances and a mix of all of the best DJs who have called this place home. There will be insane food and drink specials from 9 p.m. to close. Get your fill of the food and drink the bar dry because everything must go!"
