High Rollers

For the less adventurous, the idea of roller skating in hot pants while loaded on bourbon could seem like a harrowing agenda. Especially for a Tuesday. But you aren’t one of those strait-laced types. You piss into the wind. You attend knife-sharpening parties where kegs and children are present.

It’s maverick thrill-seekers like you who have kept Intoxiskate the must-do weekly party of the counterculture sect. Gay Skate Tuesdays have been a Gold Coast staple for more than four decades, but it wasn’t until a few years back that the full bar was added — giving the evenings a drunken face-lift.

As Intoxiskate, LGBT night has become the fastest, most precarious, hair-holding, waiver-signing rager for every thrill-seeker from the 305 to the 561. Of course, you probably already know that. Why else would the back of your hot pants read “SK8ER”?

Join your people from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. Tuesday at Gold Coast Skating Rink (2604 S. Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale). Entry is $5. Skate rental is $3. Call 954-523-6783, or visit myspace.com/intoxiskate.
Tuesdays, 8 p.m. Starts: July 6. Continues through Sept. 27, 2010
