8. Cabbage Patch Coleslaw Wrestling
For reasons we’ll never quite understand, coleslaw wrestling at the Cabbage Patch is a Bike Week institution over the past quarter century. But the story goes back further than that. Sopotnick’s Cabbage Patch in Samsula, FL has been a part of Bike Week since Olga Weber opened the cabbage fields adjacent to her father’s tavern in 1958. The rest, as they say, is history.
Here’s a little slice of Americana that must be seen to be appreciated – if not completely understood. Picture this: Two scantily clad women attempting to pin each other to the mat while standing in a vat of freshly made coleslaw. Yep, that’s it. But there’s so much more. There’s the “accidental” revealing of various female body parts, and then there’s the beer-goggled audience that is almost as fun to watch as the wrestlers. However, you’d probably want them to keep their clothes on.
