We all know by now that the Detroit Derby Girls are awesome. They are a bunch of bad ass chicks that not only kick ass, but while on roller skates. If you've never been to a bout before, it's a really good time! The Detroit Derby Girls' home turf is The Masonic Temple. Typically you can head out to see them a couple Saturdays a month. However, this weekend is not just any old bout.
This Saturday the Grand Prix Madonnas will go head to head with the D-Funk Allstars at an all ELVIS THEMED night! Fans are encouraged to wear their favorite Elvis garb as there will be a costume contest, impersonators, and tunes provided by The Devil Elvis Show.
Entry to this super fun event is $15 in advance or at the door. We suggest that you pick up some tickets ahead of time though, as this is most likely going to sell out. Tickets can be purchased online here until 6 p.m. on Friday 2/28. With each paid adult admission, up to 2 children 12 and under are admitted for free. So why not take the whole family out? Doors open at 4:45 p.m. and the bout starts at 6. Make sure you head out early to take advantage of the great beer specials (usually $2 cans!). Then stay out late with the Derby Girls at their after party at Thomas Magee's Sporting House Whiskey Bar where Frankenmuth Brewery will be premiering their Old Detroit Amber Ale.
The Whiskey Bar is located at 1408 E. Fisher Service Dr. in Detroit and The Masonic Temple can be found at 500 Temple Avenue. For more details on this fun event and upcoming Derby bouts, make sure to like the Detroit Derby Girls on Facebook here.
