Lola Staar's DREAMLAND Roller Rink
my friend and fellow local independent designer (i used to sell her t's in my shop, back in the day!), dianna carlin a.k.a. LOLA STAAR has miraculously persuaded one of the Coney Island developers to open a roller rink! the first incarnation is temporary, but if it proves successful it will hopefully become a permanent fixture in the 'new' Coney landscape. dianna has had a souvenir shop on the boardwalk for 8 years now; definitely check it out next time you're there! you can read her whole inspirational story in this NY Observer article.
the opening party for the skating rink is saturday from 6-9; the basic deets are in the flyer above (click to see it bigger) and the full-on scoop is here. it's totally FREE, but don't forget to RSVP! see you with skates on!!!
