Ahh, roller-skating. That fabled, so very California recreation of the '70s and '80s. Who among us hasn't dreamed of cruising the Santa Monica Pier with Jack, Janet and Chrissy from Three's Company? Or about joining our favorite journalist, Fletch, as he rolls his ankle boots past the beaches of LA? Alas, our town doesn't have the ocean, boardwalks and palm trees that so often accompany Hollywood's version of roller-skating. But we do have Forest Park. The urban oasis offers skaters a 5.6-mile asphalt path complete with hills, flat spots and — most important for roller skaters — plenty of people to check you out as you glide by like Adonis on eight wheels.

I LOVE rollerblading in F.P. but I was wondering if there are any indoor places that I could go speed around in during these dull winter months. If anybody has even an inkling of an idea I would so appreciate an email... rollerblading keeps me from speeding around in my car lol.

Thanks :)
