    Non-music related. I am planning to go to this event as a spectator and thought it was a cool opportunity to meet some members here and just watch something different.

    Let me know.

    Oh I don’t know. It was crowded so I avoid it. It’s rigjt by St. John’s university so the crowd can get rowdy. Not my scene but people seemed to be having fun.

    If you’re going to an actual arm wrestling event, you’d better go wearing a baseball hat.....

    ..and you’d better turn it the **** around.

    To paraphrase the hand surgeon who was examining me after I'd injured some fingers:

    "Arm wrestling? That seems like a pretty stupid hobby for a musician."

    I'm not competing, I just want to watch. Sounds like fun and interesting. I also been at a ladies roller derby and that was brutal and fun. Doing that again too.
     
  9. This isn't too far from me.

    There was a bar called, The Ratskeller, on Union Turnpike years ago.

    I don't know if it's still there.

    I don't think I'll be going to this event, but thanks for posting this, fingerguy.

    Mike ;)

    I think there maybe two or three business on all of union turnpike that have lasted more than a decade. The turnover on the whole stretch is ridiculous the last few years.

    My fiance took the wind out of my sails and in the end I didn't go.
