Romance on Wheels

Think love in the roller rink only happens in ’70s cult classics and that thoroughly enjoyable (we swear) 2005 flick Roll Bounce, starring Bow Wow? San Francisco’s very own Godfather of Skating David Miles met his wife of 32 years while skating in Golden Gate Park, where he’s been holding internationally infamous weekly skating events since 1989. Burners might also have caught him and his disco oasis at the Black Rock Roller Disco the past few years — the man is truly dedicated to advancing the skating movement. Now you can skate with the legend on wheels every Tuesday night in the Mission. Join the Golden Gate Park skaters and Black Rock Roller Disco at Inner Mission (formerly CellSpace) for some self-described “grown folks music” at the 21+ event: disco, funk, R&B and a few pro tips on getting the Cupid Shuffle and Electric Slide just right. Free refreshments of the soda/juice variety, but you’re welcome to bring your own beer. Skate rentals are available for $5. But be warned: There’s no love like the love you’ll find in Funkytown. Funkytown: Tuesday Night Skate.
