Today, you should… ‘Rollerween’ at the last Bayshore Rink Party of the year


Dress up in your spookiest Halloween costume for the last Bayshore Rink Party of the year before the rink starts to dampen from the ocean air.

Also, Mimi Masher, who has been holding these events once a week for the past eight months (you’ve had eight months, people) needs a little breather and time to plan the next one. Thank you, Mimi and volunteers! Expect a costume contest, monsters and “synth pop indie music made with love” by Knife Girl as well as sets by DJ Hawkeye.

Another great thing: If you haven’t committed to buying a pair of skates yet, message Bayshore Rink Party on Facebook to reserve a pair of rentals for $5. You can also rent a pair at the event, but sizes are limited.

Giving us a moment’s pause: Word to the wise, come in roller disco friendly costumage. We’re talking to you, ghosts, as in make sure to cut your sheets above your skates.

$10 to enter, $5 to rent skates (reserve them ASAP). The 7th annual Rollerween runs from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at 14 54th Place and Ocean Boulevard. For more details, click here.
