New Orleans Ladies Arm Wrestling (NO LAW) is a performance-based group that has popped up recently in the Big Easy. They have been putting on spectacular shows at bars across town (like One Eyed Jacks), with the main attraction being costumed-up female characters gritting out extravagant arm wrestling matches in front of raucous crowds.
The group has a great cause (supporting female-centric objectives around town), which is where show proceeds flow towards. The show itself is a mix between off-Broadway, comedy and a WWE spectacle complete with ring girls. Once the final winner has been crowned and trophy-ed up, the event often turns into an alcohol-infused dance party.
These girls no doubt have an incredibly witty since of humor. In response to the question of how they decide the outcome of the arm wrestling matches, their website says, "Rules are determined and managed by the referee, only to be manipulated and corrupted by celebrity judges, crowd hecklers and dolla billz."
Be sure to follow these girls to stay up to date on their next show. They tend to schedule at least one show per month at interesting places throughout the city. Their performances are something to be seen and very unique to New Orleans.
