Los Angeles Lady Arm Wrestlers

Los Angeles Ladies Arm Wrestling took their show to the Bootleg Theater for the "Valentines Day Massacre." Women dressed in full regalia compete and raise money for many causes including the Homegirl Cafe and domestic violence prevention programs. The event is a wild and at time outrageous affair.
