Wheels of Steel

Feb 9, 2012 at 4:00 am
Hopefully your skates aren't actually old enough to have metal wheels, but if they are, leave them and your ancient attitude at home when you roll up on Roller Disco: Wheels of Fortune, a 21-and-up night at St. Louis Skatium (120 Catalan Street; 314-631-3922). The drinks will be cheap ($2 for beers and $3 for wells), the '70s glitter and glam will be amplified through every speaker (thanks to DJs Invisible Cola and Boogieman of Funk Incorporated) while loud leisure suits, minute minis, va-va-va-voom velour and nifty knee socks will abound. At the absolute least, expect a high volume of polyester apparel -- this is a costume party, after all. Admission to the all-you-can-skate disco on wheels costs $8 (including skate rental), and the mirrored ball will spin from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m.
