Union Square Ice Rink
Ice Princess, Wintertime, It’s a Pleasure, One in a Million, Thin Ice, On Edge, My Lucky Star, Sun Valley Serenade, The Mighty Ducks… what’s your favorite ice skating movie? ‘Tis the season to start watching those seasonal and holiday films, oftentimes the ones we’ve loved since childhood.
Do you remember what you got for Christmas last year? Many people don’t. What you do is so much more important than what you receive. Sure, you should curl up and enjoy your favorite movies together. Who could pass up a night of laughter over Will Ferrell in Blades of Glory? …or the touching story of an injured hockey player turned figure skater in The Cutting Edge? Maybe this year, however, you should take your sweetheart and/or little ones to the rink to create their own memories!
The Union Square Ice Rink is located right here in our Bay Area. The holiday colors, cheerful music, and enormous Christmas tree light display create the ideal holiday mood. Starting on November 4th, the rink is open from 10 a.m. until 11:30 pm daily. General admission is $11 and youths under eight are only $7. Don’t have skates? Don’t worry! It’s $6 to rent them, and, thanks to a sponsor, Bank of the West, skate rentals are free on Wednesdays.
Group rates are an option, and the rink is available for private parties on select Mondays and Tuesdays! Public special events include single skates, learn-to-curl events, the Polar Bear Skate, and more. Learn more at Safeway Holiday Ice Rink in Union Square.
Finally, even here in sunny California, you can’t go ice-skating without dessert: don’t forget the hot cocoa. Some of the Bay Area’s finest cafés and coffee shops are located near Union Square. Emporio Rulli, for example, offers Italian pastries, wines, and a number of other gourmet refreshments. Bancarella, Café Bellini, Boudin Bakery, and, of course, a couple of Starbucks are all located nearby. Choose your favorite …or try a few! Don’t worry. We won’t tell.
