Kick off your Fourth of July weekend a bit early with food, prizes and a mechanical bull. Did I get your attention? On Thursday, July 2 from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m., Cadillac Ranch All-American Bar & Grill in the Tempe Marketplace will be hosting a Charity Wrap Up Party for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life benefit. Valley residents and Relay for Life participants can donate $20 to this tremendous cause to enjoy a mixer at Cadillac Ranch from 7 to 10 p.m., featuring a buffet, one hosted drink and a raffle for some amazing prizes, including Diamondback tickets and memorabilia. Guests can also try their luck on the mechanical bull, enjoy drink specials from 7 p.m. to midnight and dance to the beat as a live band takes the stage from 10 p.m. to close. The best part? A portion of the proceeds from the night will benefit the American Cancer Society and their mission to find a cure.
If you’re not ready for the fun to stop, on Friday, July 3, Cadillac Ranch will host Red, White & Boozed. This pre-4th party features $3 Bud and Bud Light bottles, $3 White Lightning shots, $5 vodka Red Bulls and $5 Stars Go Blue cocktails from 10 p.m. to midnight and resident DJ Randy spinning throughout the night. The festivities continue on Saturday with the 2nd Annual Rock N’ Roll 4th of July. Complete with food and drink specials throughout the night, Independence Day drinkers can enjoy the beats of DJ J Paul or relax on the patio and catch the free concert on the District Stage with national recording artists Evan’s Blue and specials guests. 2000 E.
