Most City Ice Skating Rinks Open Saturday

The temperature continues to plunge, but that's not always a bad thing. For the readers who are ice skaters you might be excited to hear that this Saturday (11/26) is the official opening for most of the citywide ice rinks.

The blog, Chicago Quirk, highlights some of the best rinks in the city, including Millennium park (which is not in the Sloop but close enough for us to enjoy):
McCormick Tribune Ice Rink, AKA Millennium Park Ice Skating Rink
As I said last week, I think all Chicagoans should try this at least once. It's a beautiful rink in a beautiful setting. I've been a few times, and it's a lot of fun. Although don't go during a high touristy time unless you want to get bowled over by families of five. Admission is free and skate rental is $10.
Agreed, it's a truly beautiful place for a skate.
