Saturday To-Do: Arenacross

ARENACROSS
7 p.m., Verizon Arena. $19-$24

Remember Excitebike? If you're between 20 and 35, there's a fine chance you probably neglected a good chunk of healthy, outdoor time as a kid by plugging into the old NES and wrecking 8-bit shop with those pixelated motocrossers. But while we were inside mashing buttons, Arenacross racers were probably outside, doing the real thing. Now, the AMA Arenacross Series lands in Verizon. It's bringing along 150 truckloads of dirt to carve out a technical, ramp-filled track ready for 32 dirt bikers to do their thing. So yeah, it's Excitebike. And Excitebike is awesome. The track opens again the next day, at 10 a.m., for an "amateur day."
