Down and Derby Launches Roller Skating Event
at Beauty Bar, February 14
Retro-Inspired Skate Night to Premiere in the Heart of
Downtown Las Vegas on Valentine’s Day
LAS VEGAS — Down and Derby is rolling into downtown Las Vegas to launch a new skate night at Beauty Bar on Saturday, February 14. The trendsetting roller skating organization is set to premiere the first of many retro-inspired events that will occur every month, pumping up the heart of downtown with a refreshingly unique nightlife experience.
Down and Derby will have couples falling into each other’s arms, and perhaps falling in love, as the skate party kicks off on Valentine’s Day 2009 from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. Hipsters and scenesters alike will spin on slick wheels while DJs Nugget and $HR3D spin everything from Earth, Wind & Fire to Daft Punk.
The entry fee is $5 with RSVP, $10 at the door, and quad skates of every size will be available to rent for another $5. Guests are welcome to bring their own roller skates to the event. Fashion attire reminiscent of a 70s roller disco is strongly suggested as it adds to the overall atmosphere of the event. Beauty Bar is located at 517 Fremont St. # A in Las Vegas, Nevada. For dress code information and to RSVP, please visit www.downandderby.org. Guests must be 21 and over.
Down and Derby is a retro-inspired roller-skating party created and designed to give attendees a unique nightlife experience.
