It’s been a long cold Maine Winter, and we are ready to WRASSLE! The Superhero Lady Armwrestlers are back and looking to challenge old champs and try out new talent in an all out battle for the best lady armwrestler in Portland.

Hosted by Er’NASTYne and Tina Machina, this brawl will be three rounds of down and dirty wrestling to see who out of eight can take home the trophy.

Half-time entertainment will be provided by the ever scrumptious Kiinky Slippers burlesque, so if you’re prone to bouts of the vapors you may want to sit this one out.

Fundraising efforts from this show will benefit SailMaine, a community sailing center based on the Portland waterfront whose mission is to provide affordable access to the water through community sailing and educational programming.

Doors are at 8PM, and there wil be a $5 cover. This show is 21+.
