When: Fri., Jan. 6, 10 p.m.-2 a.m. 2012
Traditional sumo wrestling is heavily (pun intended) regimented. They're expected to wake up early for training, skip breakfast and fill up on large portions of grub late in the day (you know, when they're starving), wash it down with beer, and go to sleep afterward. Sounds a little like the holidays, right? For those who think they have what it takes, Hartigan's Irish Pub is hosting its own Sumo Wrestling night. All of it is amateur, meaning anyone brave enough for the pushing and pulling (remember: no striking with fists, choking, kicking, pulling hair or banging around the loincloth) can participate. Special padded suits add extra protection and bulk, making the matches a bit more fair. Doors open at 10 p.m., matches are from 11 p.m.-12 a.m. and a DJ spins until 2 a.m.
