Toboggan Slide Opens at Whitnall Park

If you want a snow/sledding experience you'll long remember or something that will give the kids a real thrill then don't miss the iced-track toboggan slide opening this Saturday, Dec. 19 at Whitnall Park, 6700 S. 92nd Street,  at noon until 8pm.  (Only $7 bucks an hour to rent a toboggan- a steal of a deal) I had the pleasure of trying it out in my youth (many moons ago) and I remember it vividly.  It was very fast  seated tight  to the ground on a toboggan with metal runners.  The ride is always fun with more people and it sent us on a 1/4 mile shoot down an iced raceway.  Dress warmly of course and watch out for a cake of snow on the moosh (slang for face).  I recommend to arrive early as possible. It will also be open Sunday, Dec. 20 from noon to 6pm.  For complete schedule go to countyparks.com.  Hang on and scream! 

"Music Under Glass" Continues this Winter at the Domes

For a great winter diversion, I would recommend highly a visit to the Mitchell Park Domes, 524 S. Layton Boulevard, to experience a live "Music Under Glass" performance on a Tuesday or Thursday evening from 6:30pm-8:30pm.  For the regular price of admission these after-hours concerts at the Domes are great ways to unwind and be renewed.  Here's a list of  the scheduled performers for Jan. 2010
