It’s 50-ish degrees and there’s not a flake of snow to be found out there, but the cold, it will come. And so will the ice. Tons of it.

The folks at Portland Harbor Hotel have announced the 2016 dates for their annual (and popular – Saturday has already sold out!) Ice Bar: Thursday, January 21 to Saturday, January 23. And tickets are already on sale.

You can buy them today. Now. Before you’ve even finished your holiday shopping or broken your New Year’s resolution. Now.

The 2016 ice bar will feature ice bars with ice luges pouring martinis, ice sculptures, DJs, fire pits, complimentary food, local beer and fully stocked bars inside. (If thing get too chilly, you always have the option of ducking indoors to warm up by the fireplace with some food, which is hard to eat with mittens on anyway.)

Tickets are $25 or $33 with a drink ticket (not including the delightful fees) and can be purchased through
