If you're ready to work on your triple Axels, the Union Square ice rink opens today.
While it's not large enough to play out your Mighty Duck fantasies of doing a flying V across the ice with a group of friends, you can do a few Nancy Kerrigan spins across the ice (just try to refrain from crying like Tonya Harding if your ice skate lace breaks mid turn).
Open through Jan. 20, skating sessions are broken into 90-minute blocks from 10 a.m.-11 p.m. and admission is $11 general/$7 for children 8 and under; skate rentals will put you back $5. (Side note from many years of renting skates during my childhood in Wisconsin: Women, try renting men's skates, they can be a bit more comfortable.)
For more information on purchasing tickets and their special events (Polar bear skate, anyone?), check out their website, unionsquareicerink.com. We'll see you on the ice.
