Get to Know: Rawr-ler Rink

Maybe he can’t clap or do pushups, but this T-Rex is a skating super star!


SITM: What is your perfect date?

Rawr-ler: Going to a skate rink (especially when there’s a kid’s party going on—free appetizers!), but I don’t like holding hands while we skate…for no reason at all.

SITM: Who do you look up to?

Rawr-ler: T-Rex looks down on everyone! I’m even taller with my skates on.

SITM: What do you think about this sock & sandal trend?

Rawr-ler: Doesn’t matter when you’re skating 24/7.

SITM: Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Rawr-ler: Being used as an unrenewable resource. Just kidding. I know that takes longer.

SITM: What is your favorite song?

Rawr-ler: I’m really into 80s power ballads.

SITM: What’s your favorite leisure activity?

Rawr-ler: Roller skating! But I don’t find it relaxing. I take “having fun” seriously.


Don’t be scared, Rawr-ler Rink knee highs just want a skating partner…probably.

Roller Skating + Sock It to Me socks + Haiti love

We love spreading the love. And Haiti, above all, needs some love. So we’re throwing a fundraiser. What’s funny is that we really just whipped it together in the course of a few days, but it’s going to be epic. Because Portland has come through, and people are excited. Truly excited. (How can you not be? It’s roller skating!)

With the help of the Portland-based Mangrove Fund, we’re happy to say that 100% of all ticket sales will go to organizations leading relief and recovery efforts in Haiti. And we are also donating 100% of the proceeds from Sock It to Me sock sales during the event. (Yep, we’ll be there with a fully stocked booth!) What’s better: wear your SITM socks or buy a pair at the event, and you’ll receive raffle tickets to win some fantastic prizes. Think socks, tees, one-hour massages, amusement park passes, gift certificates to Portland hotspots and more (they keep rolling in!).
