Music, beer, crazy costumes , and even a real leprechaun (that may have been stolen) all made up the insane block party in Scottsdale over the weekend.

The scene of this epic shit show was Craftsman Court in Old Town Scottsdale. These block party events take place on all the major drinking holidays, I have spent many a Cinco De Mayo here. A stage is set up in the middle of the street and during the event you can go back and fourth between three bars, Dos Gringos, Rock Bar and Blitz. The event also works with a great local charity, Pepped Up! which provides portable entertainment (ipods,etc) to kids fighting cancer.

The musical lineup included reggae rockers Black Bottom Lighters and Grain Of Truth. We also enjoyed the smooth sounds of The Black Moods along with the high energy Good With Grenades and 90’s anthem band Lit. Followed by The Wednesday Machine closing out the night.

The thing I love about St. Patty’s Day is it makes everyone Irish! We saw some really creative costumes and even a few men in kilts. The website Thechive.com (and their seriously dedicated fans) came out in full force rocking the Chive t-shirts and awesome personalities  We met Chivers from all over the country, they were all really awesome.
Overall you could not ask for a more perfect Saint Patty’s Day. The weather was awesome, the bands and crowd were amazing. We can’t wait to hear who the lineup will be for Cinco De Mayo and can’t wait for another Scottsdale’s Ultimate Block Party!
