Knock the dust off those inline skates and four-wheeled legends because Friday night, Disco’s alive and so are you, baby. Hosted by the Over-the-Rhine Recreation Center (a few blocks from Findlay Market at 1715 Republic St., Over-the-Rhine), the Final Friday OTR Skate party offers roller-disco heroes the opportunity to rock their gold booty shorts all over the dance floor of a full-fledged, 365-person-capacity rollerskating rink on the center’s lower level (who knew, right?).
Caitlin Behle of Far-I-Rome Productions helped organize the event to help attract new patrons and further support for the Rec Center and OTR community. The party features beats by local DJs Dirty C and Positronic, an art installation by Such&Such and food from Cincinnati’s newest food truck, Taco Azul. According to Tim Heyl, coordinator of the Cincinnati Recreation Commission, “All the money raised will stay within the center and go directly toward programs and equipment to benefit the greater OTR community.”
The party is set to rage 8-11 p.m. Friday. Go here for details.
