As reported in the A to Z music blog, yesterday was September 2, 2010, or 90210 day. To honor this unique combination of pop culture-invoking numbers, St. Louis Skatium hosted a retro party like no other. Featuring live '90s cover music by The Humanoids and the Livers as well as a 90210 cast member look-alike contest, skating, drinks and a Peach Pit after dark party, this event more than lived up to expectations and rocked St. Louis until the wee hours of night.

On a regular night, the St. Louis Skatium plays host to roller hockey and roller derby practices. Over certain weekends, however, the southside roller rink transforms into a canvas for partiers to convene for DJed parties and even live music. Some of the most memorable nights happen on wheels, and the Skatium has 'em handy to strap on to dancing feet along with a bar full of refreshments and drinks.
