Every winter, the Whole Foods on Lamar–the Whole Foods Flagship–sets up an ice skating rink for anyone and everyone to enjoy and to help us pretend that we live in a region that actually has a true winter (although it has snowed here in ATX on more than one occasion thus far!).
It is set up on the plaza rooftop, where Whole Foods hosts a plethora of other events, which is really a unique idea.
Ten dollars will get you a pair of ice skates and entry into the rink to skate for as long as your legs can handle. Or for as long as you can handle these frigid temperatures, since it is outside.
Now, I know what you are thinking- an ice skating rink on the roof? How big can this thing really be? But not to worry! You aren’t actually on the roof, just the roof of the plaza. This will be the 13th season so they have perfected every last detail. Your only concern is how many people may see you fall. Or is that just mine?
The rink is open daily from 10 AM – 9 PM, and if you go on a Friday you can jam out with KUTX for its KUTX Music Fridays series.
Whether you’re a regular Michelle Kwan or just starting out, it’s a must-do for everyone!
