Get Yer Skate On!
Remember back in the day, when you'd go down to the roller rink, do a little Hokey Pokey, laugh when you fell trying to go backwards, and sweat in anticipation of the slow song--which you eventually ended up grabbing your best friend for and having a better time than you would have had with that boy you had a crush on anyway?  Well good times are here again, with San Francisco's own FunkyTown Skate. As this is the off-playa home of the Black Rock Roller Disco, expect a lot more costumes, frolicking, and debauchery, and less Hokey Pokey--at least of the dance version. Lace 'em up and get down to those old school funk and disco beats! Date: Fri 12/5, Time: 9pm-1am, Place: Gym at ISA High School, Cover: $5 w/o skate rental, $10 w/ rental, link More Info (JE)
