It's going to be cold this weekend, so why not really embrace it and join your friends at one of the many ice bars around the Upstate area. The drinks are cold as ice, but you can always warm up by a fire pit...or with some Fireball.

Here are a few upstate ice bars to visit this winter. Not all of them are open yet, and some have limited hours so it's best to check in with them before heading out.
