| Opinion/Comment: Laurene Weste | Stay cool, come to the Cube


While we’re in the middle of the long, hot summer days, what better way to beat the heat than to head to the Cube – Ice and Entertainment Center?

Inside our facility, the temperature stays at 54 degrees, perfect for getting out of the heat and spending a day on the ice. Whether you want to practice your axel, skate in our public session, or score a goal, The Cube offers many different opportunities for our residents and local ice athletes.

One of the most popular programs is our public skating sessions. Available every day of the week, our open ice is a perfect way to stay cool, spend time with friends and family, or just have fun in the summer. On Friday nights, look for extended hours to enjoy your evening on the ice! Although summer camps are winding down, programs are still available for athletes and families throughout the year.

Parents, you and your kids can skate together in our Parent Tot Package which offers skate time, rentals, hot chocolate and even cookies! For figure skaters and hockey players looking to improve their skills, just drop by our Power Skating Clinics on Friday nights! If you or your skater want a more relaxed environment to train in, try the Lunch Bunch, which is designed to help skaters 18 and older. This program is offered most Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

To view the schedule for one of these programs, you can visit the Cube website. Whether you are a brand new skater or an advanced athlete, our goal at The Cube is to welcome everyone for a safe and wonderful experience.

While you enjoy your time ice skating, playing hockey, or watching your athletes practice on ice, I encourage everyone to try the new Grille at The Cube, which features recipes from the well-known local restaurant. loved, Maria’s Italian Deli. Visitors can order any of their signature dishes like cheesy mozzarella sticks, savory lasagna or hot slice pizza. For early risers, they also make burritos, pancakes, hot coffee and cocoa for breakfast. With tables placed on the second floor, feel free to sit down and enjoy your food while watching practices or watching pro games and other sporting events on the TV screens located throughout the mezzanine. It’s just a fun place. The Grille opening hours have been extended, so please visit The Cube’s website for more information and to see the full menu.

I’m happy to report that improvements are underway in The Grille area. In addition to the amenities already available, an upgraded beverage center is in the works. This new space will increase the capacity of our facility and allow the organization of private events, galas and networking meetings. Being so close to the top shelf, the area will feature over 20 feet of table space, new flooring and ambient lighting. We hope to welcome all of our guests and residents to this new space in the fall. In the meantime, Le Cube has several spaces that offer ample space and packages for birthday parties, events, private ice time and more!

Visiting the Cube and cooling off is one of my favorite things to do in the summer. I hope all of our residents take the time this season to come to The Cube and enjoy all that this state-of-the-art facility has to offer. Ice skates, great food, and good friends are the perfect ingredients for a wonderful (and cool) day at The Cube. If you would like more information on pricing or upcoming lineup, please visit the cube and follow us on Facebook and Instagram! See you on the ice!
