We like to think that we’ve come a long way from unintentionally trimming our neighbors’ rose bushes via roller-blade wipeouts. And we can soon put our skills to the test with Skate Boston 2012. This weekend-long gathering for street bladers will get the blood pumping with a series of group skates across the city’s most gorgeous hills and landmarks. And on Saturday night, you can celebrate your roller mastery with the fest’s 7 p.m. dinner party at Meadhall (4 Cambridge Center, Cambridge, 617.714.4372), where the 100-plus beers on tap will help you nurse bruises and road burns.
