Nightclub faces fine, closed days after face-smacking contest
March 3, 2017
ST. PAUL -- Smack Fest, a women’s face-smacking contest, has come back to hit a popular St. Paul nightclub where it hurts most — the wallet.
Arnellia’s has agreed to give up its liquor license for 10 days in late March. The penalty, negotiated with city officials, stems from a Nov. 4 altercation between two contestants that took place in the bar’s parking lot following the all-female face-smacking contest known as Smack Fest.
