Interesting Events – Southern Ladies Arm Wrestling, Bob Ross & More
Valentine’s Day is next week and we have something to get off of our chest. We love … interesting events! Nothing fills our hearts more than the joy we experience during a night out in the Queen City … and we want to share that love with you! We’ve compiled a list of 12 events to keep you busy during Valentine’s week. Get ready to fall deeper in love with the creative happenings of Crown Town.
War of the Roses: Southern Ladies Arm Wrestling
February 14 at 8pm
Free Range Brewing
LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLEEEEEE! Next Friday, the Southern Ladies Arm Wrestling League (SLAW) is coming to a brewery near you (as long as that brewery is Free Range Brewery) for an explosive night of bombastic bicep action! Valentine’s Day 2020 will forever be remembered for the War of the Roses, where 64 powerful female/femme-identifying individuals will throw down in an arm-wrestling tournament of the ages. In the words of SLAW, “This Valentine’s Day, [they] aren’t just breaking hearts.”
Come cheer on these fierce competitors and enjoy the release of Free Range Brewing’s “Petal to the Mettle” pale ale. Or … compete! There are still a few competitor spots left and we can’t think of a better way to spend a gal’s night out than laying the smackdown with a group of laudable ladies. Register to compete or get your tickets to cheer on the carnation carnage here.
With great events comes great RSVP-ibilty:
