Tomorrow night the DC Rollergirls will host a send-off party at DC 9 in advance of their trip to the East Coast Derby Extravaganza (ECE) in Philly. Doors open at 8:30 and the $8 cover will go to support travel expenses for the team. Entertainment will be ample, with three live acts playing music and the opportunity to (turn back ye faint of heart!) arm wrestle the skaters.  The ECE tournament will see the DC All Stars compete to up their ranking (currently placed 12th) in the Eastern Region before their Regional tournament in September. If you’re in the City of Brotherly, or if you’re a die-hard RollerGirl fan, the ECE is two days of non-stop roller derby excitement. More than 90 leagues will be represented.

Acacia has lived in DC since graduating from Vassar College with degrees in English and Italian. She cries daily at the thought of her imminent departure from this beloved city, as she will begin a Fulbright teaching grant in the Campania region, Italy come October. She’ll be blogging that experience too. Get at her: acaciaO@welovedc.com or follow her on twitter.
