January Social

RotaryRink01Join us this Saturday around 2/2:30PM at Rotary Rink in beautiful Downtown Buffalo.  After skating we will be heading over to Big Ditch Brewery for some food and drinks around 3:30/4PM.

Rotary Rink is located at Fountain Plaza (in front of the Key Tower) on Main Street between W Chippewa and W Huron St’s.  Big Ditch Brewery is on E Huron and Ellicott St only three blocks east of the Rink down Huron.

Rotary Rink was built in 1991 as a partnership between Buffalo Place (Downtown’s “Village” since 1982), the City of Buffalo and The Rotary Club of Buffalo.  With the Rotary Club donated half a million dollars to the project.

Skating at the rink is Free as Rotary wanted it to be accessible to all, and skate rentals are available for $2 for Children, $3 for adults.

On street parking near Huron would be ideal to go to both the Rink and the Brewery. (Buffalo Place Parking Map)  Both are close to the Metro Rail with a station in front of the rink (Fountain Plaza) if you are coming from the northtowns or City and would like to park and ride.

Below are walking directions from Rotary Rink to Big Ditch it is 0.3 miles (5 min)
