As much as I love summer, I also love the chance of seasons and the chance to enjoy fall and winter activities with my family. One of our favorite places in NYC during this time of year is the Rockefeller Center Rink and a few days ago we had the chance to be there with Olympic Medalist and World Champion figure skater Elvis Stojko joined New York’s Rockettes as they celebrated opening day.

After the ceremony families and professional skaters took to this iconic rink. “After 77 years The Rink is still enchanting for all who visit it,” said Nick Valenti, restaurateur and CEO of Patina Restaurant Group, which operates The Rink and its surrounding restaurants. “We are proud to be a part of its history and look forward to many memorable years to come.”
