Rollerskates, Colt 45, side ponytails and Michael Jackson? Yes, please.
There was so much eye candy at the storied Down & Derby Roller Disco—"Brooklyn's Best Party on Wheels"—that it felt like our eyes had cavities. But not in a gross way. Anyway, D&D made its glorious, nubile and mobile return to Studio B last Friday, and we were there to watch the short-shorts, the ridiculous headbands, the awkward spills (NB: there was also free Colt 45), the graceful spills and the people who were just somehow born to rollerskate. Plus there was awesome music from a passel of DJs and prizes for the best dressed. Roll on, rollerskater.
