’tis the first ‘Embrace Winter’ post of the season


Downtown Saint Paul may not do retail well (see previous post), but if there’s one thing the city has over its big-city neighbor — and most other cities in the U.S. — it’s this. The downtown ice rink near Landmark Center has opened for the season. On weekdays, it’s open until around 5 p.m.

It will remain in place — on what is otherwise a street — until the end of the Saint Paul Winter Carnival.

And, yes, we’ll be continuing the practice of Friday lunch-hour skates if you’d like to join us sometime.
