Down and Derby

From their outrageous outfits to their breakneck speeds and 'bow-throwing bravado, the Gold Coast Derby Grrls could easily scare the crap out of you. If that's the case, then the weak-hearted among you would be advised to skip this special Halloween-themed matchup with the Gold Coast Derby Grrls, currently ranked ninth in the South Central region. Featuring the Vampires and the Zombies at the War Memorial Auditorium, this roller derby event invites spectators to dress in their best costumes for the chance to win special prizes. Truly brave souls can purchase "suicide" seating (located at two turns) in person at the venue only. Doors open at 6 p.m., and the bout starts at 7 p.m. at the War Memorial Auditorium (800 NE Eighth St., Fort Lauderdale). Tickets cost $10 to $20. Visit goldcoastderbygrrls.com or ticketmaster.com.
