  • I used to work there – drove the Zamboni and everything. (Zamboni-driving is the secret I always pull out at work retreats when they ask for ‘one thingk about you that no one knows.’) Pretty place but small – you can get dizzy going in circles in that rink! And it can be hard to keep the ice suitable in the variable DC weather, although as long as it’s cloudy you’ve got a chance.
