Feeling competitive? Get a grip…on your opponent. The Big Apple Grapple is the New York Arm Wrestling Association’s annual international contest. The best in the world compete at this literal call to arms, in which a king and queen will be crowned. Past years’ events have taken place in the Javits Center, Intrepid Museum, and Empire State Building, but 2015, fittingly will return to its roots in this low-key sports bar. Grab a beer and cheer on your champ.
