I enjoy delving into the storied past of my adopted home of Washington, DC. The rare times that my loves of hockey and District history intersect? Well, those moments (like this one) are perfect for boosting a bleary-eyed blogger after three overtimes.
This morning, the terrific local blog Prince of Petworth features an article by John DeFerrari about the 1940s skating rink that is now Van Ness Square. Be sure to check out Streets of Washington Presents – The Chevy Chase Ice Palace, and savor the super-cool (and ridiculously dangerous) idea of a downtown-DC rink with a skate-up bar.
