Hand-to-Hand Combat 

Cupid's day has come and gone, and to help cure your saccharine hangover, the St. Louis Lady Arm Wrestlers host the Heartbreakers Brawl at 9 p.m. tonight at Ye Ole Haunt (1319 St. Louis Avenue; 314-588-7149 or clawstl.tumblr.com). Lady arm wrestling is just like regular arm wrestling, except that there's a costume component and a great deal of theatricality involved. The combatants give themselves over-the-top names and personae, and also engage in WWE-type smack talking before getting down to the serious business of arm wrestling. It's also a benefit -- SLLAW was founded as a radical fund-raising mechanism to support local women's charities and women-initiated philanthropic efforts. Your $5 entrance fee helps Karen House, a house of hospitality for homeless women and children in north St. Louis.
