The sound of skate blades scraping to a stop constantly fills the air at The Marietta Ice Center, known as the MIC. Aspiring skaters gain confidence on the ice during learn-to-skate classes that teach basic skills, such as how to glide and how to stop without going into a belly flop. Hockey hopefuls learn similar basics during learn-to-play sessions that prepare them for joining one of the rinks leagues or pickup games during sticktime. Patrons regain their ice legs during public-skate sessions, with rental skates available for those who need them.

Village Taqueria & Tequila Bar, formerly known as Lime Taqueria, balances a menu of tacos, burritos, and Mexican entrees with tangy sips from the large tequila and cocktail list and rakes in praise from publications such as the Marietta Daily Journal. Chef Oscar Mendivil runs the kitchen, where he perfects the culinary art of tacos with perfectly braised barbacoa, fire-roasted poblano chilies, and grilled shrimp. The burrito de langosta—packed with sautéed lobster and manchego grits—makes fancy fare portable without the mess of wrapping crème brûlée in a sheet of gold leaf. A dozen margaritas and Latin cocktails grace the drink menu, sharing space with nearly 100 types of tequila.

El Porton Mexican Restaurant has sated cravings for fresh, healthy ingredients for more than two decades, serving up authentic Mexican lunches and dinners that complement the bar’s array of 85 tequilas. Amid golden walls that evoke a warm afternoon in a tropical cantina, guests kick-start stomachs by watching chefs craft lime-infused guacamole tableside. From the kitchen, beef and shrimp fajitas sizzle, wafting aromas of onion and bell pepper that transform into cartoon hands to lure in noses. Warm days open El Porton's patio, where sunshine heightens the flavors of make-your-own combo platters spread with chile rellenos, tostadas, and burritos, as well as USDA steaks aged a minimum of 21 days. Tequila shots arrive in flights or individually, and customizable margaritas in flavors such as mango and classic lime pour forth from salt-rimmed glasses to accentuate entrees and fuel conversations about Mexico's hidden agave rivers.

Starting with a slate of Traditional Tex-Mex cuisine, the chefs at El Chile Restaurant introduce a twist: flavors that hail from El Salvador and Colombia. The menu places classics such as burritos packed with meats, bell peppers, and onions alongside creative tacos filled with brisket, shredded pork, and breaded chicken, topped with onions, pico de gallo, or Mexican coleslaw and chipotle mayo. Signature dishes such as the “volcanico,” flank oven-cooked with a zesty salsa and melted cheese, pairs easily with drinks such as margaritas, cocktails, and sangria.

Armed with a menu packed with authentic Mexican eats, Monterrey Mexican Restaurant pleases palates within the comforting confines of a recently remodeled dining room. After warming up on an appetizer of crunchy nachos supreme or cheesy queso fundido, pairs or paired pairs can dive into a house favorite such as fish tacos stuffed with slivers of grilled or fried tilapia and served with pico de gallo and poblano sauce, or beef or chicken flautas–– Mexico’s deep-fried answer to the Cuban cigar. Chimichurri-slathered chunks of chicken arrive skewered for easy eating or an after-dinner game of darts in the alambre de pollo, and Monterrey's house margarita helps mouths cool down from bites of spicy pork chili verde.
