If you were a kid of the 80's you went to approximately 400 birthday parties at the local roller rink. Ditto on the bowling alley birthdays. I'm not sure it was really about the enjoyment of the kids, it seems like it was more because these things were cheap. Brenda down at the roller rink could give your mom a deal on the rink if you had the party on a Sunday, so that's where your 8th birthday party was. Great. Immortalize your roller rink past with one of these vibrant Roller Skate Doorstops ($130, Design Public).
