Arch Rival Roller Girls Championships – March 7 – Chaifetz Arena – It's sort of like the Super Bowl…but better (full disclosure: the person who write 5 Events is a Broncos fan). The M-80s will battle the reigning champion Smashinistas for a little thing us in the business like to call "eternal roller derby glory." Watch as months of blood, sweat and tears boil down to a singular moment for the Gateway City's most gifted skaters. Tickets are $6 to $25. For more information, go to http://bit.ly/1aLwSiR.
Green with Indie Craft Show – March 8 – Webster University Grant Gym – 5 Events is a big proponent of hipster craft shows, if you haven't noticed. And Green with Indie is the Zooey Deschanel of craft shows. The largest of its kind in the St. Louis region, it features the best in regional arts and crafts with an eco-friendly focus. The one-day, family-friendly showcases more than 60 handmade artists and vintage sellers. That's pretty cool. And it's free. That's pretty awesome. To learn more, go to http://bit.ly/P2m5NI.
