Exception to the Rule 

Local skateboarders know better than to ride into Barney Allis Plaza (12th Street and Wyandotte). If they trick around the concrete playground, they do so at the risk of being busted by the cops. For one night, though, the energy drink that promises you wings also grants skaters a free pass to tear around on prohibited turf. The city has lifted the skateboarding ban just for Red Bull Manny Mania, a qualifying event that sends one lucky KC skater to the national finals in New York City later this summer. The competition runs from 6 to 10 p.m. To compete on-site, amateurs ages 14 and older can register at 5 p.m. or in advance at redbullusa.com/mannymania.
Fri., June 4, 6-10 p.m., 2010
