NOLAW will usher in the long hot New Orleans summer on May 30 with a Cruel Summer Brawl at One Eyed Jack’s! This event will offer the usual biceps and bravado you know and love, along with a sweaty layer of sand, sun and SPF 30. Eight wrestlers will go arm-to-arm for the championship while NOLAW’s MCs and celebrity judges keep the beach party going. As always, come ready to dance to NOLAW DJs and win prizes from local businesses.
All proceeds from the Cruel Summer Brawl will benefit the New Orleans Harm Reduction Network, a volunteer-run collective that operates on the principles of harm reduction to offer material, educational, and advocacy support to drug-users and their communities in southeastern Louisiana. The NOHRN’s aim is to affirm the dignity of every individual by promoting wellness, self-care, and educated drug-use, while reducing the transmission of HIV, hepatitis, and other blood-borne pathogens among drug-users, and to seek a collective empowerment of all marginalized populations.
Doors open at 8PM, show begins at 9PM. $5 cover, but no one will be turned away due to lack of funds. Wanna wrestle, volunteer, or get involved? Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!

Hits and glitz, down set! Our next brawl will be Friday December 12th at One Eyed Jacks, 8 pm.

Come out for matriarchal mayhem at the twenty yard line.
Last night’s Super Brawl II raised $2,500.00 for Girls Rock New Orleans and belted a new champion, Seance Brawles, after a fierce final match with fellow returning wrestler, Margot TenenBOMB.

Saturday April 19th, 8 pm at the Art Klub (519 Elysian Fields Ave.) will be NO LAW’s second season ending brawl, SUPER BRAWL II: SHE HAS RISEN.
Our past eight champions, the toughest of the tough, the boldest of the bold, will face off to reign supreme for all the glory, domination and bragging rights we have to offer. This extravaganza will feature tables from rad organizations during Happy Hour, rocking bands plus a half-time date auction and a sick DJ dance party to follow. Proceeds will benefit Girls Rock New Orleans,an organization which acknowledges that “young women, Trans gendered and non-gender conforming youth are not often encouraged to develop themselves musically. Through collective creative collaboration, campers are encouraged to work together in a way that promotes mutual support and growth, rather than the competitive element.”
We need volunteers, y’all. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved. Bring it.
Princesses, rat queens, ball busting, nut cracking. Muster up some holiday cheer and join New Orleans Ladies Arm Wrestling at One Eyed Jack’s on December 7th with that giving spirit. Our last brawl of the year will benefit Womanspace Louisiana, a safe haven for women who are experiencing homelessness, mental illness, and/or substance abuse.
Pre-action happy hour at 8 pm with tabling by local organizations. End of night post-action dance party with DJ Swim Team!
