I'm curious, when you were a kid, what was the place?
I grew up in Flagstaff, Arizona. The place was most definitely our ice skating rink in middle school. I was there every Friday night. My friends and I had our parents drop us off (ew, can you imagine if they'd STAYED there?! Ohemgee, I die.) and we skated for two or three hours. We giggled, tried to skate backwards and spin, and batted our eyelashes at the guys we hoped would ask us to COUPLE SKATE with them.
Saturday nights we hit the movie theater... because once you got to high school, Friday nights were your movie night and Saturdays were your bowling night. There was no rule posted anywhere in town, you just knew.
Recently, Ryan was hungry for a second dinner (it's a thing. He constantly complains about Taco Bell stealing his "fourth meal" idea and how they owe him) and I was in the mood for dessert so we checked out a gluten free Mexican restaurant in Ogden, Utah.

Costa Vida is a small chain we'd never heard of and we are big fans now. They were so knowledgable and safe about cross contamination, and the food was pretty darn tasty!

Costa Vida is right next door to Flowrider and even has glass window-walls so you can watch the Flowrider happenings while you eat. And watch, we did!
We laughed so hard thinking about how we would DEFINITELY have been at Flowrider every Friday night in middle school. These kids would fall down HARD and get right back up again afterwards.
I remember having permanent blisters on both sides of my ankles as a kid because ice skating took its toll. I would have always been covered in bruises and sporting chlorine water-filled lungs if I'd grown up in Ogden... and I bet I would have loved every minute of it.
I need to find out when adult night is at Flowrider because once baby Bryan/Sarah is born I'd really like to try this place!
