Who cares if you dont have the skills to pull off a quadruple salchow like 6.0-scoring gold medalist Evgeni Plushenko? Sporting seasonal decorations and at least one Zamboni, the Pike in downtown Long Beach is offering a pop-up rink of sorts, where you can put your blades on ice.

Lets all just slice and slide and forget Tonya Harding ever existed.
