Ice skating is always a good idea in winter. Now add hot chocolate (spiked if you’d like), rink snacks, Brooklyn Brewery beer, a game of Trivial Pursuit, and music courtesy of DJ’s Mikey Palms & PQ, and you’ve got yourself a bronze medal—or two actually. The Prospect Park Alliance is offering a pair of tickets or “bronze medals” each worth $40 to its annual Skating Under the Stars event on February 5 that raises funds for restoration and programming of Brooklyn’s last remaining forest.
Bring leg warmers, but leave the skates at home.
1) Follow us on Twitter and tweet this message (if you already follow us, just tweet!):
