Get Tough


As faithful readers know, Ms. Day is a lady first and foremost. She appreciates the finer things in life, such as tea parties, the symphony and quiet afternoons spent reading.

And this weekend, there'll be even more toughness to go around as ARRG hosts teams from Kansas City, Philadelphia and Detroit for the ARRGageddon Invitational. Three bouts happen each day of the event; the bone-breaking gets started at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday and at 11 a.m. on Sunday (August 14 and 15). Tickets are $15 per day or $25 for a two-day pass. The tournament is held at the All American Sports Mall (11133 Lindbergh Business Court, Affton); learn more at
