We saw Pat Kiernan ice skate. Thanks, Twitter!
Occasionally, either Brian or I win something on Twitter. In 2011, we won Zipcar credit and VIP passes to see the xx at the Summerstage in Central Park. This year, we won a pair of tickets to see Aziz Ansari (coming up on June 20th!)…and a pair of tickets to see Pat Kiernan, our favorite news anchor, show off his skills at the Ice Theatre of New York’s Celebrity Skate 2012. It was pretty wild. Had no idea what “ice theater” entailed. Loose definition: interpretive dance, on ice.
It’s definitely not something that I would have decided to go to on my own volition (I would consider ice theatre a pretty niche sector of the performing arts), but I absolutely had fun. Besides…those flowers? I got to throw them at a local celebrity. It was encouraged! So, participate in those contests, even if the prize may seem questionable…you never know how much fun it could end up being!
