Planning to do some shopping or skating this weekend outdoors in the park at The Holiday Shops or Citi Pond? Stay warm out there with our top winter warming picks.
Warm your stomach
Saturday is National Pie Day, and lucky for us, there is a strudel and pie vendor in The Holiday Shops this season. Strudels and Pies by Hans is offering 25% off their savory and sweet treats to all Citi Pond skaters, who present their admission bracelets tomorrow. Perfect for an apres-skate snack to make you forget about the cold!
Warm your hands
Gather round the fire pit or relax under a heat lamp at the Southwest Porch. They also serve coffee, hot cocoa and cocktails to help warm you from the inside and out.
Warm your heart
With the holidays upon us, it's the time to not only give to friends and loved ones, but to give back to those less fortunate as well. Citi Pond is collecting gently used winter coats on behalf of New York Cares. In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, donations are especially critical this year, which is why New York Cares needs your help to meet their record goal to collect 200,000 coats this year. You'll find two large blue boxes decorated like presents near the Citi Pond gift shop on the skate deck. Please clean out your closet before you come to skate.
