Things to do this Weekend - Jan 2nd to 5th

The holidays are long gone and so are any sort of diet or normal sleep hours that once consumed our lives. As many may use this upcoming weekend as a time to reflect, re-budget and even reevaluate the past few crazy weeks, the rest of us will most likely not skip a beat and continue on our normal path of destruction. For those of us looking for a good time, this weekend is no exception. For everyone else who is looking to relax, we have a little bit of that for you, too. It's time to make new resolutions as we enter 2014 and why not start with adding a little more fun to your life? Thursday, January 2nd The Centennial Olympic Park Ice Rink.
