Cubs' Rink At Wrigley Grand Opening Ceremony Time Change

There's a forecast for snow tomorrow in Chicago, a perfect winter atmosphere for some ice skating, and the Rink at Wrigley -- a skating rink located on Clark north of Addison, adjacent to the ballpark -- will be opening to the public for the first time.


The original ceremony time was 10 a.m. This has now been changed to 1 p.m. -- so don't show up in the morning, if you were planning to attend; you can sleep in and still make it.


Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts and 44th Ward Alderman Tom Tunney will host the event, with pitcher Tom Gorzelanny present as a special guest. If you go, there will be an open skate for an hour after the event, plus free coffee and hot chocolate. If you can't make it tomorrow, the rink will be open until Feb. 28, 2011; hours are 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 2 p.m. to 11 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday (except for the following special holiday hours: 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Christmas Eve, Dec. 24; closed Christmas Day, Dec. 25; 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. New Year's Eve, Dec. 31, and noon to 11 p.m. New Year's Day, Jan. 1).
