Chicago Riots Roll Into Their First Season

You know, younger girls like to kick ass, too. Tailgate gives a big ol' derby welcome to the all-new Chicago Riots, the city's only junior roller derby league, for girls ages 12-15. For their first bout, the Riots take on the Skee Town Skirtz (Muskegon, Mich.) on Saturday, June 5 at the Windy City Fieldhouse (2367 W. Logan). The gals will play during the Chicago Outfit's halftime in the Outfit's doubleheader bout against the Ohio Rollergirls. That's like three derby games in one night!

Doors are at 6 p.m. with the bout starting at 7. Tickets are $15 presale or $20 at the door. And, as always, there's free parking.
