Think you are a tough girl? Take a seat in the stands at a derby girl match and you will either reconsider that notion or grab a helmet and kneepads and roll right in. Derby has become the ultimate badge of badassedness for girls who have the guts to leave it all out in the rink and a sign to the others that they are still the weakest link. Lake Worth is honored to have its own derby team, because of course it would. The Dub City Derby Girls will be riding dirty against the Gold Coast Derby Grrls in a match affectionately referred to as "Block and Roll." Grab a ticket and stand in the bleachers once and we know you will be hooked. It's like watching live sports, except way better.
This Dub City Derby Girls home game is Saturday at Palm Beach Skatezone (8125 Lake Worth Road, Lake Worth). Doors open at 7 p.m.; the bout starts at 7:30. Cost is $10 for regular seating, $15 for suicide seating (must be 18 and up for suicide seating -- it's very close to the track). Limited seating; think about bringing your own chair. Skatezone offers food and drinks for purchase. Visit dubcityderbygirls.com, or email email@example.com.
