Wheels of Steel


Hopefully your skates aren't actually old enough to have metal wheels, but if they are, leave them and your ancient attitude at home when you roll up on Roller Disco: Wheels of Fortune, a 21-and-up night at St. Louis Skatium (120 Catalan Street; 314-631-3922). The drinks will be cheap ($2 for beers and $3 for wells), the '70s glitter and glam will be amplified through every speaker (thanks to DJs Invisible Cola and Boogieman of Funk Incorporated) while loud leisure suits, minute minis, va-va-va-voom velour and nifty knee socks will abound. At the absolute least, expect a high volume of polyester apparel -- this is a costume party, after all. Admission to the all-you-can-skate disco on wheels costs $8 (including skate rental), and the mirrored ball will spin from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m.
