Our friend Jennifer just tipped us off to another rockin’ reason to lace ‘em up at Prospect Park: music-themed weekend skates—for the same price as the regular skates, when the music is actually pretty great to begin with. On Saturday (Jan. 9) from 10 to 1, the series kicks off with Beatles Skate!, when you can twist, shout and glide your way through Fab Four classics. And there are four more music days leading up to the Springsteen Skate season finale on March 7 (2 to 6). Show Tunes Skate is Saturday Jan. 23 from 10 to 1 (“boas encouraged”—really? on the ice?), Michael Jackson skate is Sunday Jan. 31 from 2 to 6, Disney Tunes (take one for the team) is Feb. 13 from 10 to 1 and Motown with the Temptations is Feb. 26 from 7 pt 9. $5 for adults, $3 for children and seniors.
