(1.24) At the intersection of hockey and art one finds The RISD Nads. Head downtown late tonight when the Nads take on the WIT Leopards in the Winter Classic. It’s being held at the newly-minted Providence Rink on Kennedy Plaza and it’s free. Hockey purists and young children may want to avert their eyes. And ears. RISD fans can pretty raucous . . . and vocal. The rink is accommodating this after-hours event, but it is not a part of their weekend winter festival.
All weekend, the rink is hosting its winter Ice Festival with bumper cars and DJs and food trucks and beverages including: Saugy’s Food Truck/Blount Food Truck/Hot Chocolate Bar/Trinity Beer/Ice Bar.
