Shucker Paddy turns his patio into skating rink
Patrick McMurray is getting into the Olympic spirit by flooding the front patio of his Leslieville restaurant The Ceili Cottage and turning it into a miniature ice rink for neighbourhood kids to use in the afternoon.
The patch of ice has been dubbed the Dinky Rink, and Shucker Paddy has borrowed curling rocks from the Royal Canadian Curling Club for impromptu nightly matches and marshmallow roasts that begin at 7 p.m. Assuming temperatures stay below freezing, the rink is expected to be open until March 10, when it will be cleared away for St. Patrick’s week festivities.
Ever the concerned parent (not to mention proprietor), McMurray’s rules for the rink are no hockey, no loud noises after 11 p.m. and no smoking. Alcohol is permitted on the rink, but he suggests hoisting a pint after a skate.

skating will take your mind off the lousy food.

Hmm, try turning it into a restaurant that serves good food at reasonable prices, and we’ll talk.
Until then, forget about it!
too bad I missed the skating…sounded like fun. It would be nice to have a pub trivia night there is nothing in the east end of town.
