When the next Ice Age arrives, the ice skaters will survive, thanks to their ability to make quick runs to the grocery store and out-skate roving gangs of pillaging bobsledders. Lace up and stay ahead with this Groupon.

Veterans Memorial Skating Rink
Since 1968, the NHL-regulation ice surface at Veterans Memorial Skating Rink has hosted skaters for a bevy of blade-footed endeavors that range from recreational public-skate sessions to speed-skating lessons. For year-round open skating, participants can bring their own skates or don a pair of comfortable Riedell Soft rentals before carving figure 8s and chiaroscuro sketches of Wayne Gretzky into the ice surface. Other ice offerings include hockey and figure-skating lessons, and after skating sessions, a battery-powered Zamboni and electric edger smooth the ice's surface with minimal impact on the environment.
