I mean really, who doesn't have a coleslaw wrestling event in their city? Here, we chalk it up as tradition - 20 years and still going strong.
So much so, that Sopotnick's Cabbage Patch "Coleslaw Wrestling" simply turns up in the Orlando Sentinel events page alongside a Museum of Art attraction and a race at Daytona Speedway. No further info necessary. It is what it says - women wrestling in cole slaw - a pit of shredded cabbage and vegetable oil...yum! But, it's not all fun and games - as you'll notice, there is a judge.
If that's not enough redneck fun for ya, you'll be happy to know you can count on the arrival of a porn star/exotic dancer who will provide the crowd with a "no-charge-for-that" boobie flash. It's always a fan favorite.
I didn't think so.
While you're at Sopotnick's, they ask that you take the time to check out the "World Famous Cabbage Car." Innovative? Yes, but what's even more tacky fabulous are those 80's-haired models in the shorts, ankle boots, and black stockings. My kind o' gals, y'all!
One last bonus - if you find yourself getting all caught up in the excitement of Budweiser and cabbage, fear not! Like every good Central Florida bar/restaurant, Sopotnick's has got a campground on-site.
