Yesterday I attended, what I feel is, the most fun concierge event of the year.
Ice skating at the Boston Harbor Hotel!
This year was equally as fun, if not better. We started out in the Rowes Wharf bar with drinks and some small snacks. Before getting on the ice, I enjoyed a nice glass of Prosecco.
Then it was time to skate! I actually haven’t skated since the last event, but I surprised myself by getting the hang of it really quickly. I didn’t fall, and I was zipping around doing forward cross-overs and stopping to turn really quickly. To put it in a few words: I had a blast! I used to figure skate when I was younger, and I actually miss it a lot. I’d love to take adult classes…we shall see! 🙂
No action shots this year, but believe me, I was flying! 😛
I could have stayed on the rink for hours, but the bar eventually won me over. I enjoyed a nice Tanqueray and ginger beer while munching on their many delicious appetizers: pizza, chicken wings, calamari, crab cakes; everything was delicious! And the company was even better, as I was surrounded by some of the best concierge that Boston has to offer. And I received some great advice when I go for my Les Clefs d’Or keys. Only a couple more months until my application is due!
The skating rink is located at 30 Rowes Wharf, under the Rotunda. The rink is smaller than the Frog Pond, but far less crowded. They are open weekdays from 3 pm to 8 pm and on weekends from 10 am to 9 pm. Admission is $10 for adults; $5 for children. Rentals are $10 for adults; $8 for children. They also offer season passes: $50 for an individual; $100 for a family (2 adults, 2 children 12 & under).
This concierge event was complimentary; all opinions are my own.
