The loop is open every day and is free to the public. Overall, the ice quality was great, with a few bumpy patches. We'll definitely be going back and we're hoping to check it out in the evening sometime!
Then in the evening we went out for dinner and drinks with friends, in the Underbelly of Yellowbelly Brewery. It was our first time in the Underbelly (the basement), and actually Elizabeth's first time at Yellowbelly. Plus, it is interesting to note that the room we were in is one of the oldest rooms in North America!
Here are some more photos of our skate:
