My Love Note:

Dear Class of 1923 Arena,

When I’m not climbing bridges, crawling through tunnels, or shoving burgers down my gullet, I’m thinking of you. You may not have the best ice, but when I set foot on it and knock around a frozen piece of rubber, I have no worries in the world. All my stress is gone. We may only see each other once a week but the time we spend together is something I always look forward to.

I hate to tell you that we have to break up once Spring is here, as I pick up my seasonal relationship with another local partner, Wissahickon Skating Club.

    It’s a pretty nice rink, even if you just like to skate around in circles to music, too. Not as romantic as the open-air RiverRink, maybe, but there are public skate times five days a week all year long.

    not all year long
