The next bout at the Doll Factory between San Diego Derby Dolls’ “The Swarm” and L.A.’s own “Varsity Brawlers” is happening next Saturday night (2/28,) and we’ve got free tickets.
If you weren’t at last month’s season opener, you missed an incredible double-overtime win by the Tough Cookies. It was one of the most exciting nights in L.A. sports in recent memory (I’m looking at you, Kings. How ’bout a win at home?)
In addition to the excitement on the track, there will also be a half-time performance by Barrio Tiger, as well as the usual vendor village featuring Alex’s Bar, gourmet cookies and lots of other cool stuff. They’ve even got Hot Dog On A Stick!
You don’t want to miss this one, so follow me past the jump to find out how you can win tickets and a Derby Dolls t-shirt.
In case you’re unfamiliar with roller derby, all of the skaters have names like Tara Armov, Gori Spelling, Paris Killton, Tae Kwon Ho, and Ivanna Knockemova.
Make up your roller derby name and leave it in the comments. The best name, chosen arbitrarily by me, wins a pair of tickets and the Derby Dolls t-shirt of your choice. If you come up with more than one, multiple entries are encouraged. Make sure I’ve got your email address so I can notify the winner (it should be listed with your MetBlogs registration.) Contest ends Tuesday, February 24 at 5:00pm pst.
Don’t want to take a chance on winning the tickets? You can purchase tickets from the Derby Dolls website. Don’t wait ’til the day of the event. The last one sold out, and this one will, too.
Also, don’t forget, this event coincides with Classic Eats again this month, so come out early to join us for the eats and drinks, then follow me to the Doll Factory for the roller derby action.
