Winter Carnival officially gets underway at 5pm this Friday, and the first big event is the Special Olympics Skating Showcase at 6pm, featuring a dazzling performance by two-time Olympian Johnny Weir. He’ll be joined by Olympian Kimmie Meissner, members of the Special Olympics skating team, and the synchronized skating team The Skyliners.
There will be plenty more at The Rink all through the week.

For food and drink, stop by the Brew House on The Deck, offering a variety of beers from Captain Lawrence Brewing Company and glühwein made with Cali Red from The Drop Wine Company. Come for Happy Hour at 5pm–6pm, Monday-Friday, and get 50% off your beer or mulled wine purchase. Pair your drink with a classic sausage or brat by Brooklyn Cured. The Brew House is also host to live music, live DJs, and fun activities including Live Band Karaoke with Arlene’s World Famous, Dueling Pianos, trivia, and more, including a Big Game viewing party on February 4.
Throughout the week, warm up at the Bank of America Warming Lodge. It’s toasty inside, with comfortable furniture, and free mobile device charging.
