3 fun things for Dec. 23-25


CONYERS

Ice Days

Cozying up by the fire with a steaming mug of hot chocolate is even better when you work off some energy in the chilly outdoors first. Here’s one fun way to do it: Pay a visit to Ice Days at the Olde Town Pavilion in Conyers, where you can burn significant calories on the ice rink. Admission gets you a set of skates and two hours of twirling. If you’re a little wobbly and want to work on your moves, learn the basics of balance and style with a private lesson; individual sessions cost between $32.50 and $70, depending on how long you want to work with an instructor. Even if it’s looking dreary outside, the rink is mostly under cover and will be open rain or shine.

11 a.m.-11 p.m. Dec. 23; 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Dec. 24; 1-10 p.m. Dec. 25. $8-$10. Olde Town Conyers Pavilion, 949 S. Main St., Conyers. 678-374-7655, icedaysconyers.com.

SHARPSBURG

Family Holiday Film Festival

Have the kids been shaking the presents under the tree and asking one too many questions about why Santa’s paper always matches Grandma’s? Or do you just need a few hours to finish wrapping your own? Consider a quick distraction with the Sharpsburg NCG Cinema’s Family Holiday Film Festival. On the mornings of Dec. 23 and 24, the theater hosts a screening of “The Polar Express,” the beloved children’s film featuring Tom Hanks and a cast of kids who venture to the North Pole to renew their belief in Santa Claus. The screening is available in a sensory-friendly format. And as a holiday treat, it’s free.

9:30 a.m. Dec. 23-24. Free. NCG Sharpsburg, 55 Fischer Crossings Blvd., Sharpsburg. 678-326-4460, ncgmovies.com.

SANDY SPRINGS

Feast of the Seven Fishes

If the thought of cooking for the family this weekend is already making you stress, consider taking at least Christmas Eve off and heading to Cibo e Beve. Chef Linda Harrell is putting on an Italian-American night-before celebration with the Feast of the Seven Fishes. Choose from a variety of seafood options including lobster risotto, mussels, charred octopus and grilled branzino. Can’t decide on just one? Sample a selection of everything for $85. Reservations are not required, but calling ahead will ensure a seat at the table.

5-11 p.m. Dec. 24. $14-$85. Cibo e Beve, 4969 Roswell Road, Sandy Springs. 404-250-8988, ciboatlanta.com.
