Windy City Rollers Fri Jan 22 2010

Over the Top with the Windy City Rollers

What, you can't roller skate and artfully slam others at the same time? Here's your chance to show 'em: The Windy City Rollers are hosting an arm-wrestling tournament at Reggie's Music Joint (2105 S. State) on Saturday, Jan. 23, from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Sign up begins at 7 for those interested in getting a beat-down from a derby girl. While you're at it, enjoy cocktails and the sweet sounds of Crazy Rocket Fuel, an all-girl rockabilly band out of Milwaukee. The winner of the competition receives $100, and the runner-up gets $40 in Reggie's Bucks, which ain't half bad.
