Ice skating dates back more than 4,000 years, making it the third-oldest winter sport after narwhal fencing and yellow-snowball fights. Salute the staying power of ice gliding with today's Groupon: for $22, you get 10 public skating sessions (up to a $45 value) at the Skatium Ice Arena in Skokie, now through April 3, 2011. The sessions may be used by adults or children, and multiple sessions may be redeemed at a time. This deal is not valid on Saturday, February 26.
The Skatium Ice Arena offers public skating on most weekday mornings and during weekend afternoons and evenings. Check out the full calendar for a complete list of public skating times. Savvy skaters can figure-eight their way around the full-size hockey rink, while novice ice walkers can lock hands with that special someone, strictly for balance purposes. Use the sessions to perfect your triple Lutz, or treat 10 strangers to an ice-breaking afternoon.
