What’s “on tap” for you at LUEWWD X?
We’re so excited to welcome local business Triangle Brewing Co. as our new LUEWWD sponsor. We love their brews!
Marilyn Manho, the hostess of LUEWWD events, has a few special treats in store for the audience. Along with her on-stage pals Sassy McKlassy (ref), Lady Trauma (stage bouncer) and Fur Pelton John (round boy extraordinaire), Ms. Manho will be bringing you an unforgettable experience. The judges—Robert Bland the Preacher Man, Kaferine de Nerve and Really Ruby —will be ready for you (and your bribes), too. LUEWWD likes to run a tight ship of good arm-wrestling and good times with a quite a bit of hilarity involved.
Contestants will be vying for titles of LUEWWD Champion, Durham Diva, Madame Moneymaker and Queen of the Losers.
There will be many fun ways to part with your money:
- Contestant voting: contestants and their entourages will be vying for your dollars throughout the evening
- Raffle: 50/50 raffle, two season tickets from Burning Coal Theatre Company and a one-month membership at Fitness World
- Open Table: pay to arm wrestle new and old friends at the table
- Bribes: Want to see a dance-off or some hula-hooping? Want to see a different outcome? The judges can be persuaded to alter reality.
- Merch: You can take home screen printed tank tops, t-shirts, onesies or underwear with the LUEWWD logo on them. We also have hats, buttons, bottle openers, stickers and magnets for sale!!
