Have you ever found yourself clearing off a barroom table, staring down your best friend, hands locked, nail polish chipped â€¦ a frenzy of curious dudes gathering around youâ€¦when the jukebox and everything you've ever accomplished (graduate school, solo art show, your band's European tour) is drowned out by the sheer necessity of this momentâ€¦of your momentâ€¦when it all just comes down to arm wrestling?!!
Calling all gals with a penchant for barroom arm wrestling! CLAWS, the Classy Ladies Arm Wrestling Society, announces its first ever LADIES ONLY arm wrestling tournament on October 29, 2008 at Brooklyn's Union Pool.
