City winter nights can be long and hard, so you may as well have a
little fun as you count the days till spring (for the record its 64).
Pass the time by spinning around la patinoire on the Quays
of the Old Port. Every night, live DJs will inspire you to perfect
your twizzles and toe jumps to the sounds of 80s retro, electronica and
Instructors are on hand Wednesday evenings to show you the basics, and
afterwards you can enjoy a pint of hot cherry beer at the nearby Winter
The Quays Skating Rink, open until March 9.
Tickets $4, skate rental $7, www.quaysoftheoldport.com
