Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

Anyone who happens to hang out at Giligin's in Scottsdale on the weekends should automatically have an interesting story to tell. Por que? Because of Chuey the Rock 'n' Roll Midget, that's why. (For instance, how many of your tales of memorable nightlife exploits include the phrase "...and then the midget walked by"? Not many, we reckon.)

There's always a cast of kooky characters lurking about the Old Town (including its always-amusing owner "Captain" Mike Fields), but none are as memorable as Chuey. Whether he's dispensing off-color jokes or high-octane adult beverages at his tiny "midget bar," this diminutive devil can add a certain zaniness to any nightlife experience.

We managed to snap a picture or two of the cat during a visit to Giligin's this past Friday night, which you can witness for yourself in our weekly Club Candids slideshow.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
