I have a bucket list of things I want to do here in Madrid this year, since I'm still not certain how long I'll be here.
One item on this list was to go ice skating, which I got to cross off this week. An ultimate frisbee teammate invited all of us to go ice skating on Wednesday evening.

It was fun to do something out of my normal weekday routine, and to catch up my Quijotes friends after the holidays.
IF YOU GO...
What: Sagardi Palacio de Hielo
Where: c/ de Silvano, 77
Metro: Canillas (Line 4)
Hours: Wednesday and Thursday: 20:45-22:15, Friday: 17:30-24, Saturday: 12:30-15 and 17:30-24, Sunday: 12:30-15 and 17:30-22:30
Cost: It cost 6 euro to skate with skate rental on Wednesday night. I only glanced at the weekend prices, and I believe they were all above 10 euro. Obviously, I'd recommend going on a week night.
Other: The "Sport Hielo" ice skating rink is located within a huge shopping mall. There were tons of rebajas when we went this week, so bring some extra money if you want to go shopping as well. The mall includes a 100 Montaditos (other restaurants too), so you can have some drinks and eat a bit before/after skating.
