There’s nothing that makes you feel like welcoming winter more than ice skating right before Christmas. You see it in the movies all the time, there’s always a scene that starts on the ice.

Even if you don’t know how to skate, that shouldn’t stop you from attending. In fact, if you’re a bit shaky on your feet, ice skating gives you the reason to be social. As your new friends help you get your bearings, you’ll need to laugh quite a bit at the awkwardness of it all and you’ll feel like a kid again. Nothing makes for new friendships better then teaching someone something new.

For those who know how to ice skate already, a more exciting night awaits you, as you’ll be whipping around the pond at break-neck speeds.

Our night starts at 6:45-7:00 pm when we meet up at Frog Pond. We’ll get our skates about 7:00-7:10, and skate until 8:15-8:30 or so. Then we’ll wrap the night up with strong drinks and hot food at SIP Bar & Kitchen.
