Devoting themselves solely to the science of teeth lightening, Whitening Xpressions gifts guests with sparkling chompers. Their whitening system combines a stain-dissolving gel with blemish-busting lasers to get rid of discoloration left from coffee, wine, or curiosity over how Sharpies taste.

Strung from the ceiling are mason jars transformed into light fixtures, illuminating the wood-paneled walls and spacious dance floor of Moonshine Whiskey Bar & Grill. It’s a fitting touch for the country western bar, whose bartenders also fill mason jars with 39 whiskeys, bourbons, moonshines, and scotches, reports the East Valley Tribune.
Within the three-story, 11,000-square-foot establishment, libations flow from four bars, as well as in the kitchen, where head chef Chad Holmes pairs housemade blueberry pancakes with housemade blueberry moonshine syrup. Chad incorporates local ingredients into every item on his from-scratch menu, such as the free-range chicken tenders with bourbon peach BBQ sauce.
The kitchen serves up grub into the wee hours of the night, and bartenders stick around an hour after last call to supply patrons with complementary soft drinks and water. The bar itself stays open until 3 a.m. four nights a week, giving patrons plenty of time for line dancing, riding the bar’s mechanical bull Willie, or cheering up William, the bar’s bored rodeo clown.

Urban Dare Adventure Race is a fast-paced competition that challenges two-person teams to decipher clues, navigate the city, and perform playful stunts. A dozen trivia-based clues lead contestants to checkpoints all over Phoenix, where they must use a camera to document their presence and, in some cases, complete challenges, such as scaling a wall or solving a puzzle. In addition to running and walking, contestants may use public transportation to move from checkpoint to checkpoint, though taxis, cars, and bikes are off-limits. Races generally last less than four hours, and the winning team receives free entry to the Super Dare, a cruise-based take on the Urban Dare concept that features a $5,000 grand prize. Proceeds from the race will be used to help battle breast cancer.
