You should get out more. The rink in City Plaza has been open for just over a month.

Yup, it has been open since early December (December 4th I think) and will be open through January 31st. It is located in the new City Plaza area. I spent some time down there before Christmas and it seemed to be drawing good size crowds (especially at night). I don't think this is an attempt to mimic another city. Just a good idea in general. It certainly seems to be a success.

Skated it on new years...pretty neat. Not huge, and could use some smoothing, but Im no ice skating expert and had a great time.

Saw something on TV the other day saying it was doing so well that they extended the time it will be open, I think another week (Feb 7th).
