Sing It, Sister
FoCo skaters will be serving up songs for a fundraiser at Eloy's restaurant and lounge, 320 S. Link Lane, on Saturday, May 21, at
8 p.m.

For $1, you can get a derby girl on stage, and for $3 you can even pick the song. Another $2 will gong her crooning to a merciful end.

Join us for some drinks, some tunes, and a tone-deaf good time.
Get Your Gig On
