The Chicago League of Lady Arm Wrestlers‘ (CLLAW) return Saturday, July 18 for CLLAW 22 at the Logan Square Auditorium, 2539 N. Kedzie Ave. in Chicago. Presented by Sideshow Theatre Company, CLLAW’s 22nd bout will feature Chicago’s biggest, baddest, most belligerent lady arm wrestlers decked out in over-the-top outfits with fast-talking managers, ebullient entourages and shady referees. The horrifically awesome evening will include awesome prizes from local establishments, wrestler mania and antics, a cash bar and much more!
Tickets for CLLAW 22 are $10 or $15 with ten CLLAWBUX (that’s half price!) Doors open at 10 pm with the first match beginning at 10:30 pm. All proceeds from CLLAW 22 will benefit Sideshow Theatre Company and this match’s partner charity, Chicago Arts Partnership in Education.
CAPE engages students, inspires teachers, transforms schools, and demonstrates impact by weaving the arts into public school classrooms across Chicago. CAPE brings academics to life through original, creative lessons, developed and taught by artists and classroom teachers, which lead to improved critical thinking, creative problem solving, and academic achievement for students.
With Master of Ceremonies Rokke L. Squelch, and a couple of questionable referees to control them, twelve not-so-lady-like ladies in outrageous costumes volunteer their time to vie for that most cherished prize – the bedazzled CLLAW gloves. Who will leverage their way up the bracket? Or bribe their way to the top? All these questions and more will be answered, and all of Chicago is invited to bear witness.
Not content to leave the fun in the arms of its competitors, CLLAW 22 gets everyone in on the action. Audience members have the opportunity to purchase CLLAWBUX, the official currency of CLLAW, throughout the night. With their CLLAWBUX, onlookers can bet on their favorite wrestlers to prevail, and maybe slip a few to the referees to even the score. All CLLAWBUX purchased also go towards fantastic raffle prizes.
