Celebrate Santa's "Bad" Side Tonight In Tempe

Billy Bob Thornton as Willie T. Stokes, the model for Bad Santas everywhere.

Everyone deserves to be a little dirty, even jolly old Saint Nick.

In fact, we're sure he's probably in major need of a stiff shot and a lap dance right about know, especially since he's likely hip-deep in elves and presents and there's less than 72 hours to go until the big night.

If he can somehow squeeze it into his hectic schedule, we recommend Father Christmas head down to the Vintage Lounge & Grill tonight, where he'll be the guest of honor at the nightspot's Bad Santa Party.

Remember Billy Bob Thornton's turn as a boozing and scandalous Kris Kringle in 2003's holiday classic Bad Santa? Well that's the spirit of this evening's debaucherous affair.

There will be plenty of ladies in attendance who'll be dressed in their sexiest and skimpiest Mrs. Claus outfits, with such drink deals as $3 Skyy vodka drinks, $99 bottle service, and "naughty x-mas shooter specials" being served.

Giveaways and presents will be handed out all night (natch) -- including door prizes and gift certificates -- and DJ XXXclusive will be on the ones and twos spinning mash-ups, Top 40, and house music.

Doors open at 8 p.m. and the party gets going at 10:30 p.m. Call 480-297-2195. -- Benjamin Leatherman
