An afternoon swirling and twirling (or slipping and sliding) out on the ice calls for a nice warm cup of hot chocolate – and the peeps at Shy Bird are more than happy to oblige. On Sundays from 3:00-5:00pm, Shy Bird Kendall Square is offering free hot chocolate to skaters coming from the Canal District Kendall rink. Stop in after your session and grab a cup of hot cocoa (with marshmallows, of course) on-the-house for your little ones and grab a boozy hot cocoa for yourself (available for purchase) to kick-off your Sunday happy hour.
If all those Lutzes and double Axels got you promed for a post-skate snack, Shy Bird has lots of options including the Eastern Standard Pretzel, salumi plates and burrata. Or, feast on an early dinner and order one of their famous rotisserie chickens. They’ll also have coloring pages and games for the kids to keep them entertained while you unwind and warm up from all that ice skating. Get details on the Canal District skating rink (hours, location etc.) online here, and to stay up to date on happenings at Shy Bird via their insta or website.
