Membership costs $50 per year but non-members are also welcome. Once you get through all the technical requirements, you're ready to skate!

Noble Ale Works is a microbrewery located right next to Angels Stadium. The tasting room is bedecked with Anaheim Angels paraphernalia, from banners to signed jerseys. Aside from this and their TV (to watch Angels games, of course), the decor is spartan, all the better to not distract from the main attraction, the beer. At the tasting room, you can sample 12 beers on tap, most of them their special seasonal beers, although of course regular year-round beers are available too. Beers on tap rotate often, so multiple trips can result in completely different experiences every time. Aside from regular open hours, the tasting room is also open before, during and after any Angels or Ducks home games.
This public library offers a wide variety of books and reference materials, as well as offers special programs such as children's story hours and adult literacy programs.
The Anaheim Brewery's tasting room features a 30 foot long bar, salvaged from a now defunct historic, local saloon. Stop in to the light and airy tasting room and try any of the brewery's eight beers on tap, ranging from the flagship Anaheim 1888 beer to chocolate porter and dopplebock. Tuesdays are Taco Tuesdays at Anaheim Brewery, when a taco cart comes to the brewery and serves up cheap tacos and bacon-wrapped hot dogs. Please note that Taco Tuesday is a family-friendly event.
