Snow and Glow! Blacklight wrestling party in Midtown Manhattan.

About this Event

UV-reactive wrestling action in Midtown Manhattan! Behold, the return of our traditional Blacklight Grapple Den Wrestling Party in New York City!

Neon Glow and Ambient Snow in this winter wrestle wonderland.....

December 2019 Grapple Theme:

While the GENERAL party theme is Blacklight Wrestling (we will have tons of blacklights in there, for 100% UV reactivity), we also have a our "vs" theme for those who would like to partake. And that "vs" theme will be: Predator vs Krampus!

This can be literally Predator vs Krampus, or can be interpreted creatively: Nice vs Naughty, Alien vs Demon, Dangerous Hunter vs Dangerous Game. Let this "vs" theme inspire your attire choices and any possible scenarios / schtick. And at the end of the night, we will declare a winner from whichever side was represented best/most!

* Participation in the "vs" theme is not required, but it is fun.

The Grapple Den NYC Wrestling Party is:

- A participant-driven event where people can meet and grapple on the wrestling mat "dance floor."

- An evening spectacle of costumed matches and thematic antics.

- A chance to throw down under the party lights and surrounded by the musical sound-scape.

.......... or a chance to simply recline and watch the action unfold.

Grapple Den is a neutral meeting ground for fun-seeking grapplers and wrestling fans of all shapes and sizes. Our parties are open to people of all genders and experience levels, 18 years and older. The mats are the dance floor, and opportunities pop up through the evening for different "styles" of dance, including one-on-one matches in front of the crowd, a Tag-In Royal Rumble battle, and multi-match Open Play.

Dress Code:

There is NO formal dress code. However, wearing something that is UV-reactive is highly recommended to add to the atmosphere.

Warning -- Not all neon clothing items are UV-reactive! We have learned this from experience! If you're not sure whether your neon is UV-reactive, we recommend testing it first to see if it glows when exposed to a blacklight.

White is also often UV-reactive. But UV-reactive neon colors really look awesome. You can use blacklight reactive make-up on your face / body for an intriguing effect.

We also have a "vs" theme for additional attire (and persona?) inspiration: Predator vs Krampus. This means Nice vs Naughty, Alien vs Demon, Space Hunter vs Supernatural Game, and, yes, also literally Predator vs Krampus. This is just for inspiration; participation in the "vs" theme is not required.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

This party is BYOB. Water is available for all attendees.

All genders and skill levels welcome.
