Superhero/Villain Roller Skating

Do you want to get your groove on while propelling yourself forward on tiny wheels?  Then put on your favorite superhero or supervillain t-shirt and come skate with us!

All skill levels welcome!  Whether you can skate backwards while reciting the periodic table of elements, or whether you get passed by the four year old in training skates, you will have a blast and get some exercise while doing it.

Meetup: This will be fairly informal, come and go as you wish! We will meet in the front lobby before going in, but you are welcome to come at any point in the evening.

    This was a lot of fun with a great group (with great costumes!) and a good workout. We'll definitely have to do it again!

    So much fun!!!! This just reiterates the fact that I need to have an emergency costume in my car at all times. Everyone looked FANTASTIC. We will definitely do this again. Funky's does the cheap skate night every Wednesday, so if anyone has a night they want to do another one feel free to suggest a theme.

    Oh what the hell.. I'll join you guys. Although I will most certainly be the guy getting passed by the 4 year olds!

      Yay to both of you!! I'll have knee pads in the car if anyone needs them.
      Also, they have these great wheeled walkers that let people work out their balance. I've seen them get people off the walls and out onto the floor over the course of an evening. :)

    I was going to wear a Superman shirt, but I called an audible and I will be doing Baby Avengers instead :) I will be in the lobby around 7:30, but latecomers are more than wecome to meet inside. Feel free to text me at (540)[masked] if you can't find the group. (I will likely be the one slumped over in exhaustion near the sitting area)

      I may be inside earlier, warming up the rink. I'll pop out to look for y'all periodically. :)

      Sure - you are welcome to wear whatever you like. The general populace will not be in costume -this is just a theme I wanted to try to make it fun. And yes, I am planning on being there.

      November 5, 2013

  • Ana C.

    Oh Andrea can you bring my container that I left at your house??

    November 4, 2013

      Sure thing! I actually had it set out to bring to you.

      Yep! Quad skate (the older 2x2 layout) rental is $1, and inline skates (rollerblades) are $3.
      If you know the size of inline skates you wear, you can let me know and I can try to pull some of that size out of my store room. :)
      You can also bring your own skates, as long as they're not in bad enough condition so as to damage the rink floor.

    FYI, I've just created a Facebook event for this so as to invite lots of other people who aren't on Meetup. Please join it if you would like to. :)

    The skating session is officially 7:00-9:30pm. I may arrive early to skate off some energy for half an hour before the rest of y'all pull in. :D

    Afterwards, we can eat at a nearby restaurant, if anyone is up for it. El Charro's is in the next parking lot over, and I think it closes at 10pm.

    There are also some restaurants between Funky's and the Hwy 81 entrance south of it, like "The Substation And Ricos Taco", among others.

    This is a very friendly place. Wednesday nights it's $2 admission.
    ($1-3 for skate rentals). If you know your size, message it to me and I may be able to bring a pair of skates to fit you from my Storehouse of Many Skates. ([masked] /[masked])

    If you don't feel comfortable on skates, they have "walkers" with wheels to help get you up to speed.
