2016 Home Closer - July 30

HEY! Guess what? Saturday, July 30, 2016, is your LAST CHANCE to see the Outfit kick some booty on the track until next season. Nobody can wait that long! You're gonna be so sad if you miss it, so you better be there. Get there early to get a good seat – doors open at 6:00 pm at the Windy City Fieldhouse (2367 W. Logan Boulevard) in Chicago. The double-header kicks off with The Outfit’s Shade Brigade taking on Demolition City Roller Derby's Destruction Dames at 7:00 pm. The excitement keeps rolling with The Outfit’s Syndicate vs. the Demolition City Roller Derby's Dynamite Dolls.

Tickets can be purchased online for $15 at www.chicagooutfitrollerderby.com, or at the door for $20 and discounts are available for groups of 10 or more. That’s a pretty good deal for what will probably be the best night of your life. Plus, some of that money will go to a good cause!

Partial proceeds will support To Write Love On Her Arms., a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide. TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire, and also to invest directly into treatment and recovery.

Additional treats and entertainment will be available for all to enjoy from Posh PastriesAztec Davess, Taquero Fusion, and Sauce and Bread Kitchen. Beer is provided courtesy of Lagunitas Brewing Co and Temperance Beer Company and will be available for purchase. Delicious Dark Matter Coffee will also be available. (I am pretty sure they are all delicious because they are always sold out by the time I’m done skating and mosey over for a snack. Don’t be a poor schmuck like me—get your dinner/snacks and drinks early and often. And maybe save me a treat, eh?)

So anyway… come watch us skate, have a snack and a drink, and say goodbye to skaters who are retiring at the end of the 2016 season! Also, I heard a super fun, wild group is planning to attend, so come and hang out with them too—shout out to the HOGs!

AND the party doesn’t end at the Fieldhouse! The after party will be held at Township (2200 N California Ave.) following the bout. Come dance with your favorite derby team too! (We’re pretty good dancers.)

Ok cool, see you there!
