Union Square Ice Skating Rink Now Open

Posted By on Wed, Nov 6, 2013 at 1:00 PM


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, We'll see you on the ice.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
