Time to strap those roller skates on

The city Office of Arts and Culture is throwing a Donna Summer roller-skating bash on City Hall Plaza Friday evening.

The Donna Summer Memorial Roller Disco Tribute Party, which pays tribute to the Dorchester disco diva, starts at 6 p.m. Skateless? Don't worry - there'll be a dance floor set up to bust a move on.

You're gonna bust a move AND your head if you have to skate over those bricks. Please tell me that the city is putting down some kind of skate-worthy surface over the bricks.

But I'll already be in the biggest gay place on earth on Friday.. Ptown.

But seriously.. dancing on brick. Reminds me of a rave I went to a long time ago at Great Woods (yes it was called Great Woods still). Dancing in a tent on the pavement. My ankles never hurt so much after that, especially after dancing to hard trance all night.

FWIW: There is a large slab on concrete at City Hall which made the perfect surface for an impromptu roller rink! We'll do it again next year, promise :)
