The full work week is about to wrap up, and we’re looking forward to the weekend! Since our team will be cooking turkey, eating pumpkin pie, and watching copious amounts of football next weekend, we thought we’d provide you a list of #UberApproved events to check out for both this weekend and next. Don’t fall victim to a food coma, get out of the house with your loved ones and explore our charming city!

Weekend of 11/21:

Lace up the Skates | Panther Island Ice Skating

It’s time to hit the ice at Fort Worth’s only outdoor ice skating rink! Shred the ice seven days a week between November 21st – January 19th. You may not be able to do axel jumps or back flips on the ice, but staying upright and off of the ground is a big enough feat. You’re sure to have a blast on your blades!
