Throwback Thursdays
We take a TBT more seriously than just posting a pic from the depths of our camera roll! With extended happy hour specials running until 8pm, you’ll be fueled up on grub and good drinks for your decade themed roller-skating session. Hosted by Sunset Roller Club, Island between 4 & 6 from 6 to 9 p.m. comes alive with your favorite all-time hits of the 70s, 80s, 90s and 00s. You might know them from TikTok, but Sunset Roller Club now takes their tricks to the Gaslamp Quarter as a diverse group of skaters from all over San Diego which began as an outlet from the pandemic and now has exploded into a huge inclusive community of skaters of every level. Dress for the decade – themes rotate weekly!
