Around Los Angeles

Strong Armed @ Bootleg – 7 pm/$8

Strong Armed @ Bootleg – 7 pm/$8

It’s not everyday you can watch ladies arm wrestle in the name of art. Of course, today is not everyday. Head out to the Bootleg Theater for a one-night-only fundraising extravaganza with the Los Angeles based LA LAW (part of the national non-profit Collective of Lady Arm Wrestlers or CLAW). It is One part Theater. One part Wrestling. One part Anything Can Happen. And all the money raised is donated back to our communities. And the whole gig is a cross between WWF/Roller Derby madness with a bit of the burlesque thrown in for good measure. Interested yet? Of course you are, don’t kid yourself. Here’s the basics: Eight companies will send a wrestler. Eight women will battle it out with strength, wits, bribery, you name it. Celebrity judges make the final decision. A champion is named and the proceeds are donated back to the winning wrestlers company. The mission: to empower women and strengthen local communities through theater, arm wrestling, and philanthropy.
