If you switch on classic hip-hop the moment you get into the car or start your work-from-home-day, then you’re the exact audience for the Hip Hop Halloween Bar Crawl. This bar crawl draws DJs who spin old-school hip-hop at different bars along U Street all day (and night) long on October 29th.
Each bar boasts its own hip-hop theme, so belt out different hits depending on that DJ’s chosen genre. But before you actually head to U Street, don your most creative Halloween costume for a chance to win cash prizes throughout the day. Even the uncostumed can score drink specials, door prizes, and bar crawl swag as long as they have a wristband on hand ($10+). Although the exact roster of bars has yet to be announced, the crawl always consists of at least six different establishments all within walking distance of each other along U Street. That means six totally different sets spun by some of the city’s hottest DJs! So you may want to start planning your topical hip-hop artist costume ASAP if you’re serious about bringing home the gold from the costume contest.
