When it comes to rates, the chauffeurs at Phoenix Sedan Service nearly match those of their taxi-driver counterparts. But when it comes to service, the navigators of luxury sedans and SUVs rocket past peers by emphasizing punctuality, even in the face of traffic, late flights, and crossing ducks. Behind the wheels of a fleet that includes Escalade super stretch limos and party buses, drivers promptly shuttle passengers to and from Arizona airports, checking arriving flights to ensure timely pickup. Drivers also convey brides and business associates in Lincoln town cars or shuttle parties of up to 14 in limos decked out with TVs and minibars.
The professional uniformed chauffeurs at Lexani Limousines ferry guests to wine country and beyond in luxuriant late-model horseless carriages. Guests will depart from one of two pickup locations--the Hilton Mesa or Metrocenter Mall—at 10 a.m. for Cornville Springs winery in one of Lexani’s kitted out motor coaches before embarking on a full day of vino appreciation. Attentions are diverted with video entertainment systems, stowaway card tables, and reading lights, and the vehicle’s pivoting seats and bathrooms ensure all the comforts of a narrower, shinier home. At 8 p.m., passengers spent from the day’s grape sniffing will return in style with plenty of storage space to house rare vintages or vine-fastened friendship necklaces.

The high-powered guitars and down-home melodies of Southern rock marry the revving of motorcycle engines at Chester's Harley-Davidson. On March 24, headliner Molly Hatchet belts out the epic songs and fantastical imagery from their extensive discography, including the 1979 hit Flirtin’ with Disaster, which amps up ears and soundtracks comments on a spouse's cooking. The next day, ahead of his new album, Cut from the Same Cloth, Jimmie VanZant siphons inspiration from the guitar-strung limbs of his family tree, with cousins in Lynyrd Skynyrd and .38 Special. The following weekend, four new members infuse fresh energy into Tampa’s Outlaws, whose original singer still croons of “Green Grass and High Tides” in their anthem that hit No. 13 on Billboard ’s Hot 100. The Outlaws and Whiskey Rodeo show will benefit the Special Olympics Arizona, with riders beginning at 10 a.m., and riding to Chester's Harley-Davidson for the concert.
Wooden beams and tables, American-flag accents, a DJ booth, and real Cadillacs on the roof accentuate Cadillac Ranch’s southwestern vibe, which is permeated with rock and roll tunes. On game days, patrons gaze at a 150-inch HD projection screen or one of 30 plasma televisions while sampling bar bites such as tacos and burgers from one of the menus, which include a late-night selection that is served until midnight.
