Celebrate the third anniversary of the Daily Hidden City-style with a roller skating party at a vintage rink that’s been in business since 1932 (but looks like it was pickled around 1975). Beer and skates are included in the ticket price (and there will be plenty of room for the non-skaters out there to kibbitz), plus the option of riding to the rink in a fully restored, 1950 PTC bus for an additional $15.
