Re-post of an oldie but a goodie, brought to you by my dear friends Francine & Alan! Ice skating paired with hot chocolate is the perfect date for winter:)
What: Ice Skating, Hot Chocolate & Donuts
Where: OSU Ice Rink – 390 Woody Hayes Drive & Buckeye Donuts – Corner of 18th and High
Phone: (614) 292-4154 (Rink) & (614) 291-3923 (B.D.)
The Ice Rink!
What’s the best part of winter? Ice skating of course! And hot chocolate! This date has them both. The Ohio State University Ice Rink has really cheap skating with skate rental, and then Buckeye Donuts is a University favorite that makes some of the best donuts in the area.
Total: $14 for two (2 hour) skating passes and skate rental, $4 for two small hot chocolates (or coffees) + one HUGE apple fritter + $2 for Meter Parking @ Ice Rink = $20
*Gliding around the ice rink is like nothing else.
*Buckeye Donuts has a great atmosphere, and even better donuts.
*1 hour of skating is usually all it takes before you get sore, remember to bring some good long socks!
* Skate times are set by the University and change each month through the year, but usually Wednesdays and Saturdays have skate times.
*Unless you walk to Buckeye Donuts or the Ice Rink, parking can be rough. It’s meters or OSU pass only (unless you park far away & walk) @ the Ice Rink & it’s meters or street parking a little further away @ Buckeye Donuts.
Note: Ice Rink times are always updated here
