Now that you're done with the Thanksgiving feast and the rush of door-busting, big ticket Black Friday items have been purchased, you're probably ready to relax and start to enjoy some of the holidays.  If you're looking for a fun day out with the kids or some romance with the lady, strap on some blades and hit the ice skating rink over at the Empire State Plaza that opens today.

The Ice Skating Rink over at the Empire State Plaza is open seven days a week from 11:00 AM- 8:00 PM.  Skates are just $4.00 for adults and $3.00 for children, but according to the Plaza, Fridays you can rent FREE stakes thanks to our friends over at Hannaford.

On Sunday, December 2nd, the Holiday tree goes up so the rink will be closed for the festivities from 1:00 PM-6:00 PM.  Maybe the next weekend, you bring out the lady around 7:00 PM  - sun down, Christmas lights up.  Perfect date.

Have skated at the Plaza before?
