Is that costume you're planning to wear for Halloween contest-worthy? Is it one that would also enable you guzzle drinks, gamble and gyrate to devil-themed music? Or do you just want to see other people look silly doing all of that?
Then Casino del Sol should be part of your Oct. 31 itinerary this year.
The casino is hosting what it bills as Tucson's largest Halloween party from 9 p.m. to midnight, with costume contests that award freeplay (which, if you use it properly in the slot machines, can be easily cashed out), food and drink specials and maybe the most appropriate cover band for the night: Astrocreep, a Rob Zombie 'tribute' band.
The best overall costume will win $1000 in free play, while $250 in free play is being given out for 'most original' and 'best group' categories.
Even if you don't plan on dressing up this year, this event could be worth going just to see how much security flips out when it sees some of the getups they'll have to frisk for weapons and contraband, not to mention having to card 40-year-old women who've managed to make themselves look 16 for an evening.
