Skateboard with Tony Hawk inside the mall

Ok, so skating with Tony Hawk inside the mall may be a bit of a stretch, but you can try out his new game before it’s released in stores.

Video game guitars and drums gave confidence to those who didn’t play the actual instruments. Now those who always wanted to skate can move with confidence with the game’s motion sensing skateboard. I’m actually really excited about this game — I can’t skateboard, even if my life depended on it.

At Quiksilver inside Planet Hollywood’s Miracle Mile Shops, you’ll get a chance to try out “Tony Hawk: RIDE” before its release on Nov. 17. With its motion sensing skateboard, you’ll be able to control the action with your feet. You can try out this game for free now through Nov. 17. Demo times are Friday and Sunday 2 – 7 p.m. and Saturday and Monday, 1 – 7 p.m.

So get ready to jump on that skateboard and in the words of Lupe Fiasco, “So let’s kick…and push…and coast!”


Most folks take their Vegas jackpot winnings back home, but my dad decided to stay here instead. That’s how I left Seattle almost 20 years ago. I moved from greenery and rainy days to hot summers, palm trees and desert. As much as I love my hometown, I decided to stick around Vegas. This city just has so much to offer. You don’t even have to be a gambler, bar hopper or an all-night partier. I love Vegas for its awesome vegan-friendly spots, concerts, swanky hotel suites and spas so big, they’re like castles. The pool scene is not too shabby either, which is why I love taking stay-cations. Besides living it up -- Vegas style -- I’m hanging out with my handsome hubby, adorable baby girl, two cats and super-fluffy Shih-Tzu. I’m also a huge fan of '90s music, shows and movies. You can find me on Google+ and Twitter.
