Skating away

November 14, 2007

Mea culpa for getting the info wrong yesterday and sending folks to the City Museum a day early!  The food drive is Thursday.  Today’s info, I promise, has been extra-thoroughly vetted.

It’s another suggestion for burning off energy (and don’t we need that all the more now that the days are shorter and the yards are soggier????).   The wonderful outdoor skating rink in Forest Park opened last weekend, and it’s celebrating the new season on Saturday the 17th with free admission from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (Skate rental is $2.50).  There will be some demos and contests tying up the ice for part of the day, but you can call ahead to 314.361.0613 (more info at the Steinberg Rink site) and find out when they’ll be.

If you see us there, M. will be the one examining the cracks in the ice, and the cool way the leaves have frozen into it, and the Zamboni shed, and anything else that captures his fleeting interest … but perhaps this is the year he finally masters the art of moving himself along under his own power.  That’ll free me up to resume my years-long quest to master the art of skating backward.
