Lady arm wrestlers of Chicago’s CLLAW back in action for 16th fundraiser
Costumes! Booze! Arm wrestling! Booze! Smack talk! Booze! That’s what awaits you at the next CLLAW (Chicago League of Lady Arm Wrestling) blowout — its 16th — on Friday, June 7 at the Logan Square Auditorium (2539 N. Kedzie). The mayhem begins at 10 p.m.
What you’ll see at this theatrical fundraising event for Sideshow Theatre Company : becostumed women — tough dames and indelicate flowers like the Killer Bee and Macho Ma’am Candy Savage — berating and beating up on each other during refereed matches. Here’s a tip, though: you can buy “Cllawbucks” to bribe the refs — or anyone else who’ll help put your favorite grappler over the top.
Check out this Sun-Times story on the group for more elucidation on the subject.
“ON BALANCE, OFF BALANCE, DOESN’T MATTER,” Savage blustered on Facebook. “I’M BETTER THAN YOU! And tomorrow, at CLLAW XVI, I take my RIGHTFUL seat as the MACHO QUEEN when I defeat The Killer Bee for the Championship Title! OOH YEAH! CAN YOU FEEL THE MADNESS?! YEAH! DIG IT!”
Music is provided by the Black Laces and the Lucky Shiners, general admission is only $10 (drink available at cash bar) and proceeds benefit Sideshow as well as C4 — Community Counseling Centers of Chicago.
