The Late Skate

• 11:00 pm Skate Leaves Teaism (Penn Quarter)
Level: Beginner, 1.5 hours (5 miles)

We will go skating through some Washington, DC nightlife neighborhoods to interact with happy people and show them our Disco Cart. This will get some of them dancing and maybe we will find willing passengers for the cart. Route will also take us from the restaurant to the Skate DC Weekend event hotel and then back to the White House so local skaters will be able to figure out where they left their cars. Along the way we will visit the Shaw skate park.
