We've been scoping it out to find you the best places to roll with the girl gang. OK, maybe we were just going anyway, but we've got some suggestions (like, that parking garages are not great...).

Thankfully, we've got other options. There is always the outdoor rink at CSU (which we give an A+ because we make the best skate playlists and always make friends with freshman). There is also Rollerland adult skate night (Wednesdays 8 p.m.-10 p.m.), obvi. If you are a skater or blader, this is where you want to be in the winter when it's too cold outside. There's also music, strobes and snacks.

Now, Skate Ratz and Launch are hosting a ladies' skate night at Launch Creative Center in Fort Collins. The next one is scheduled for Friday, September 30, 6 p.m.-9 p.m. While Launch is a skateboarding community, you can roll in on eight wheels, too. And, with the cooler weather coming, it's good to know this is happening indoors.


Launch is located at 1007 N. College Avenue Unit B, ans all ages welcome; skaters under 18 must have a parent sign a waiver. Donations are encouraged and will benefit the Launch organization. For more information, check out the Facebook event page.
