Watch It Wiggle

When it comes to hoof-based dessert confections, Jell-O stands alone — that's because nobody in their right mind wants to eat the shimmying glop. Somewhere in the dim past of the '80s, a bright thinker finally found the perfect use for the stuff: As a medium for freestyle wrestling, it can't be beat. Tonight at 7 p.m. at Fubar (3108 Locust Avenue; www.fubarstl.com),the ladies of the Arch Rival Roller Girls put the mess to the test at the first-ever ARRG Jello Wrastlin' fundraiser. The roller-derby queens will adopt WWE-style ring personas and costumes and then grapple in single matches, tag teams and perhaps even a Royal Rumble, all while the members of the Fuck Off and Dies serve as referees and color commentators. Admission is $10, PBRs will be sold at the bargain price of $2, and the money raised goes to defray costs for ARRG's travel teams.
