If you were looking forward to doing some ice skating this fall you’re going to have to find somewhere other than the sculpture garden to to it. The NGA website has the following notice:
Due to technical difficulties with the ice-making equipment, we are unable to open the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden ice-skating rink until further notice.
You can take the metro out to Pentagon City for the moment if you’re determined to do some skating; Pentagon Row’s outdoor rink is open for business already. Anyone got any other favorite ice rinks, indoors or out?
