Free Skating on the Midway!

January 6th, 2010 § 3 comments

Winter might be cold, but it can still be lots of fun! Take, for instance, the ice skating rink on the Midway, just below 59th street! Try the rink out for free this Friday, January 8 2010. Free skating lasts from 12:00 pm until 7:00 pm, so bring a thermos of hot cocoa and a friend or two, and hit the ice.  Skates can be rented for $3 as a U of C student.
