ICE is setting up again in Santa Monica

By Michael Aushenker
It’s become local tradition: Everyone knows that when construction workers start laying out those long planks of lumber on the southwest corner of Arizona Avenue and Fifth Street, ICE is on its way.
Santa Monica’s 8,000-square-foot outdoor pop-up ice skating rink returns for a seventh year today with a kickoff party at 6 p.m. featuring champion skater Randy Gardner, free ice skating, children’s activities and music to skate to by DJ Dlux.
Those who work up an appetite on the rink can sample food by Del Frisco’s Grille Santa Monica, Real Food Daily and Rosti and signature sweet treats by Chocolate Opulence and Hollywood Candy.
The rink continues to operate through Jan. 20 and is open from 2 to 10 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 2 p.m. to midnight Fridays, 10 a.m. to midnight Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sundays. Admission is $12
