Skating, Chicago Style

We are continuing to channel the Stanley Cup win here in Chicago, and looking for ways to extend our blade gliding pleasure.

The Hancock Center is planning an indoor, winter skating rink on the 94th floor — touted to be the highest in the world!  Last year  Wrigley Field’s new owners  opened up evening skating “under the lights” — will that reprise this year?  And, of course, we compare the rink at Millennium Park favorably with NYC’s Rockefeller Center rink all winter long!

Unfortunaltely I think of “skating” as the thing that happens when a deadbeat escapes the consequences of his actions.  Guess I am going to have to start thinking of it as an attraction that brings people out, spending money, heating up the economy,  and enjoying the City!  Wonder if my grandkids have skates . . .?
