Adams Morgan Summerslam
We're disappointed that Asylum's Labor Day weekend Jell-O wrestling tournament was postponed, but the delays seem to be for the best. When I stopped in last night to talk to the staff, everything they told me made the event sound more interesting.
Amateur Female Wrestling is now Thursday night, and it's become a vegan-friendly tournament, with the grappling taking place in applesauce instead of gelatin.
Matches begin at 9, but the bar is offering special wrestling classes for participants at 8. Hopefully those last-minute tips will pay off, because a $500 grand prize is up for grabs. Contestants pay a $7 registration fee in advance (call 202-319-9353 by Wednesday night), or $10 at the door.
For spectators, a $5 cover includes an appetizer buffet, $3 pints of Pilsner Urquell and some sights you probably won't forget for a long, long time.
