what roller skating and the 80's have in common

If you put the word 80's in any sentence, my ears immediately perk up.
Sure, I was only 5 when that decade concluded, but it is in my sooooouuuuul.
So, clearly I was sold after hearing the word...

Roller skating + the 80's = Best party idea EVER!
My friend Callie's fiance and his college buddies have been hosting Sk80's for the past six years.
They rent out Skate Zone 71 in Columbus, invite hundreds of people, everyone brings their own booze, and for three and a half hours everyone skates/shuffles/falls on the rink to some stellar 80's tunes.
Don't worry, they make you sign a waiver first, on which I marked that I was an "advanced" skater.
Total lie I found out upon rolling onto the rink. But I didn't fall at all, unlike some other fools, so there's that.

These pictures are truly worth a continuous stream of "that party was awesome!" words.
So, other than a head full of 80's songs I hadn't heard in forever, here's what I took away from this:

1. I look 7 in a side ponytail.
2. Shawn would look like a badass with a tattoo sleeve {see first pic}.
3. Mixing Lime-a-ritas and Bud Light is delicious.
4. Roller skating after 15 years is like riding a bike. Just more unsteady, especially after a few brewskis.
5. My cut-up sweater looks like something a Jester tripping on acid would wear.
6. 80's music is still awesome.
7. I can't wait til next year's Sk80's party!
8. You're invited!

Jessica Odom said...

This may be the greatest party idea ever. I <3 the 80s! So what if I was born on the last day of 88??

Anonymous said...

OMG!! That is AWESOME!!!! Looks like SO much fun!! I too was only 5, but of course any reason to crimp your hair and throw it in a side pony tail is perfect to me!! Love this idea!!

jessica said...

Mary said...

This looks like so much fun!!! Love the outfits.
My sister, some of our girl cousins and me went out one night and after entirely too many drinks we decided my 26th birthday MUST be celebrated at the skating rink we all grew up at every weekend. We wrote out a promise on a napkin and we all signed it for proof that we all HAD to attend. Sadly my 26th bday did not consist of any skating :(

Kat@shop.school.sleep. said...

What a fun event!!! 80's music is the best (well I prefer 90's music, but 80's music tops the list too hahaha) Love your 80's gear and skating brings back memories of jr. high when the local skating rink was THE place to be hahaha

Amy @ A Glimpse of the Gouglers said...

OMG I die. I am SO JEALOUS that you got to go to a fantastic event like that! I was a roller skating diva back in the day. I now officially have a deep desire to go again :)

Shannon Dew said...

Shut up! How cute is all of this!? I love it!

Amber said...

Um, your outfit is freakin' awesome! This looks like a blast, but sadly I can't skate. I've never gotten the hang of it. When I was a kid, I'd go with friends and be the girl who hung onto the railing the whole way around the rink, ha!

Janna Renee said...

I am super jealous, because that looks like SUCH an amazing time and brings back so many memories!

Bev said...

I haven't went roller skating in YEARS!!! This looks like so much fun!! Were you able to groove to 80's music without falling?! FUN!

And we all look 7 with side pony tails!! I guess it's a good thing since it makes us look younger?? lol

xo, Bev

80's parties are so fun. A few years ago our work holiday party was 80's themed, and we had a blast dressing up and dancing to 80's music all night long!! I had no idea this place even existed in C-bus. I'll have to look into it.
