Time Out says

Strong Rope Brewery and A Matter of Pride host a night of glamour and grit at this drag queen wrestling smackdown

You've seen drag performances and you've seen professional wrestling, but have you seen them both at the same time?

On Saturday, November 25, you can at Strong Rope Brewery in Red Hook (185 Van Dyke Street), as A Matter of Pride takes over the Brooklyn brewhouse for a night of single leg takedowns and serving face. Along with DJ sets and burlesque performances, you'll have a ringside seat as the reigning drag queen wrestling champion, Boy Diva herself, defends her championship title.

And to celebrate all that glamour and grit, Strong Rope is teaming up with Dyke Beer for the festive event, with several of the latter's brews on tap, including the Strong Rope-Dyke Beer collab pilsner. And Friendsgiving is nothing without the food: Smokin Jerks will also be on hand doling out delicious Caribbean-infused Texas-style BBQ. After all, drag wrestling does work up an appetite!
