Skate or Cry

Tuesday, Jun 21: Bomb Lomas

Even the visionary Avril Lavigne couldn't kill skating, the punkest of pastimes. I tried it out for a year, but I kept scraping my knees, and then all the skater kids would laugh at me because apparently I cry like a little baby. Whatever. I'm not resentful. This Tuesday is Bomb Lomas, the annual downhill skate jam that brings tears to my eyes. Not because I care, or anything. I probably just got some dust in there. Meet up Tuesday, June 21, at Los Altos Skate Park between 1:30 and 3:30pm, and receive a free shuttle ride to the staging area at Albertson's on Juan Tabo and Lomas. From 5-7pm there will be a game of S.K.A.T.E., a Hippie Jump contest, hot dogs and even free product giveaways from Haven Skateshop. Maybe everyone's forgotten my wimp status. God, I hope they can't smell it on me. Los Altos Skate Park • Tue Jun 21 • 2-6pm • FREE • View on Alibi calendar
