Parson's Chicken & Fish is attempting to attract customers to its patio during the frigid winter months by transforming it into an ice skating rink, reports RedEye.

For $5 per person, customers can enact their favorite scenes from "The Cutting Edge" or "Blades of Glory" while skating around a rink that opens on Friday, Dec. 12. They'll offer skate rentals for an additional, yet unspecified, cost. The rink's hours are 3 p.m. to midnight on Fridays, 10 a.m. to midnight on Saturdays, and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sundays, the Red Eye added. The rink has a 30-skater max.

Parson's is also promising a special menu from chef Hunter Moore, but haven't revealed the details. Many customers have spent their summer days at Parson's patio sipping on cocktails prepared from bartender Charlie Schott. There's no indication of a drink limit for skaters.

UPDATE: According to Parson's, the menu will include hot and cold beverage items "for the enjoyment of adults and children alike."
