It’s Halloween week in Vegas!

Coyote Ugly Bar & Dance Saloon at New York-New York Hotel & Casino, will host its Sexiest Costume Contest this Thursday.

Sin City’s naughtiest angels, devils, schoolgirls, nurses, and more will strut their stuff atop the famed movie-inspired bar for a chance to win up to $1,000 in cash and the title of Coyote Ugly’s sexiest costume.

Beginning at 11 p.m., the Strip’s wild watering hole’s very own “coyotes” will take over the mic and lead the participating vixens down the line in front of the crowd, who will decide their fate.

Coyote will offer a selection of tantalizing cocktails along with a number of devilish drink specials, including $3 Halloween-themed shots provided by SKYY Vodka. Registration begins at 9 p.m. Entrants are encouraged to apply by walk-in. Contestants and patrons must be 21 years of age or older to enter.

Riviera: Wicked Vicky Tavern will host “The Wickedest” Costume Party on Halloween at 10 p.m. and showcase the popular local band Sin City Sinners from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. The winner of the Halloween costume contest has a choice to either have free beer for a year at Tavern, up to three drafts per day, or $500 in cash paid at the event.

The tavern will also have a “Ghoulish” drink special menu on hand for the evening. Anyone wearing a costume during the event will get a complimentary draft beer. Wicked Vicky is located on the casino floor and is open seven days a week from 6 a.m.-2 a.m. For more information, visit
