We’re back for another season of Thursdays!


DJ D-Mac & Associates are back with the rinkside beats every Thursday, December 5th thru February 27th, at the skating rink in the Sculpture Garden at the National Gallery of Art! Working with the good folks at the rink, we’ve made a few changes this year:

  • the DJs are free to freestyle it and play whatever gets them and the skaters moving
  • café tables (and heat lamps!) are now available for post-skate lounging
  • hot cocoa will be available (additional snacks and refreshments available soon)

More information about the rink is below and over at the official NGA rink page.
