In Midtown, MARRS Restaurants Will Get a Rink-side View


Crews began work Monday constructing an ice-skating rink in the middle of 20th Street between J and K. The rink, which opens Nov. 20 for the holiday season, is right next to the MARRS Building, home to Peet’s Coffee & Tea, Luigi’s Slice, Azul Mexican Food and Tequila Bar, and Lounge on 20. Now, it’s no Rockefeller Center, but MARRS is already one of Sacramento’s most happening spots. The skating rink is expected to draw an 40,000 additional people to the area. This is the first time midtown has hosted the rink, which in the past has been set up at St. Rose of Lima Park at K and 7th streets. Construction on the K Street Mall forced this year’s move to midtown.
