Summer is already on a roll in WeHo.
The Sunset Business Improvement District held a ribbon-cutting on Wednesday for “The Rink on Summer at Sunset,” a sprawling roller-skating rink open all summer long, featuring special events such as DJ sets and top-tier brand takeovers.
Located next to Carney’s Hot Dogs on Sunset Blvd., the rink is the centerpiece of the BID’s Summer on Sunset 2022 program. Summer on Sunset was developed in 2019 to drive visitors to The Sunset Strip through programming and promotional incentives during the summer months.
“After a long, dry, pandemic, our businesses are open and welcoming customers back to The Sunset Strip,” said Brett Laterri, chair of the Sunset Strip BID and owner of the Den on Sunset. “We are excited to launch Summer on Sunset again to highlight all the great, food, retail, music, and fun on the Boulevard we have to offer. Our retro roller-skating rink will be a destination highlight!”
The rink is open seven days a week through August 27. Hours are Sunday through Wednesday from 2pm to 8pm, Thursday through Saturday from 2pm to 10pm.

I see some of the city government people were at the roller rink opening.City manager David Wilson was there along with a city fellow I recognize from past city council presentations and webinars.
I guess the two guys, with Mayor Meister presenting an proclamation, are the owners of skating rink.Such fun! Hey, is that Christina Applegate I see there?
It looks like a place where nobody dared to go, the love that we came to know, they call it Xanadu, er the Sunset Strip. It takes your breath and leaves you blind. And now open your eyes and see, what we have made is real, we are in Xanadu, er the Sunset Strip, a dream of it we offer you, a million lights are dancing and there you are, a shooting star, an everlasting world and you’re here with me, eternally…
I bought tickets for Monday. So excited

Flying wheels, you’ll need a pilot’s license.
Hope that helps!
