If they can ski in Dubai, then we can certainly ice skate in Dallas. And outdoors, at that.
Think of it as better sporting through chemistry.
It's all happening at Klyde Warren Park, where a 3200-square-foot skating rink has been constructed with Super-Glide, a synthetic material that simulates the properties of genuine frozen H2O.
After all, we had more than our fair share of the real thing last weekend.
So wait for a nice, sunny day and bring your own ice skates to enjoy the rink for free. Of course, this is Texas. And because you likely aren't wearing a sequined jumpsuit right now, you probably don't own a pair.
That's ok. They're just five bucks to rent on weekdays, $10 on weekends. Or completely gratis on Tuesdays.
Just make sure to bring a date.
Nothing weirder than a guy spinning around a fake ice rink all alone.
