If you're looking for a hip-hoppin' way to spend Halloween (and you're too young for the bars), Jilly's American Grill in Chandler is hosting an 18-and-older costume bash complete with the latest in hip-hop tunage.
The bar, which we're a little sketched out about, considering the bouncers pad you down before you enter, still has a fun vibe with a video DJ and big dance floor. DJ Green Lantern spins Saturday.
The spot also serves up a wide variety of bar food and has plenty of spots to take a breather if you get winded doing the monster mash.
What has us intrigued, though, is the big $1,000 cash prize for best costume. Maybe it's worth debuting our Lady Gaga outfit there?
Admission is free for ladies before 11 p.m. and $5 for men before 10:30 p.m. Log on to www.myspace.com/vipenterprises for more info.
