Brrr… It’s cold outside! This looks like a slow weekend for social events. Could be a good time to stay inside, watch football and perfect your chili receipe for the 2015 Super Chili Bowl. Enjoy the weekend!
Eisenhower Park’s skating rink, Twin Rinks Ice Center, is now open. It’s not as busy as Iceland yet so it’s a good time to head over if you want to check it out. Click here for directions, hours and cost.
