Even without a coupon it doesn't seem too expensive.

Upside: ice skating. Downside: Lloyd Center.

I do like FUN, though. Yay!

I've never ice skated, so I'm unsure if this would be fun for me. I'll think about it. But I wanted to drop a link to this video, if anyone's looking for some skating in Portland today!

I was well into my 30's when I tried ice skating for the first time ever. I was surprised at how easy it was to get the basic hang of it, and I managed to completely avoid falling down. My feeling is, if you can roller skate, you can learn to ice skate no problem.

It didn't show as a video for me, but that's pretty awesome.

Secretariat, this is your chance slide gracefully across the ice supported by nothing more than your sense of balance and peer pressure. Have FUN, dammit!

And yeah, I think roller skating and ice skating are basically the same skill.

Depending on which weekend day in March (unfortunately I may be busy for two weekends, the 8th/9th, and definitely the 15th too but I think I'm free the 16th) I'd like to attend! Hopefully I still know how to ice skate. Haven't done it in ages, now.

So are we dropping the whole idea, then?

Pick a day, any day! I'm free any time after the 23rd.

Well then, according to this schedule that leaves next Saturday the 29th 11:30am-10pm, or Sunday the 30th 11:30am-6pm; or a weekday evening 7:30-9:30. After that we're into April, which looks like it has roughly the same schedule.

Oh wow, this hasn't happened yet. I can do early on Sat the 29th, anytime on the 30th!

On our way...I'm wearing a Metafilter T-shirt.

That was fun! I'm tired now...but it's a good tired.

Yes, it was fun! We had a good time, too. Thanks for posting pictures! :D
