If you didn’t make it out yesterday to do some outdoor ice skating at the Pentagon Row rink you have missed your chance for the season. I’m a little bummed – this is the first winter since I’ve come here that I haven’t gone out and done a little skating. On the other hand, this Miami boy made his first snowman this year, so that makes up for it a bit.
My darling girlfriend pointed out an amusing contrast when we walked by the rink on Saturday. The rink was filled with parents of either gender and their little girls. However the little boys seemed entertained to climb in and out of the empty fountain. I’m sure the fact that there’s no admission fee and skate rental for this activity didn’t bother the parents at all. Who wants to bet that by next year Row management manages to find a way to monetize it?
