Only the sartorially superb are invited to join the best skating rink party since middle school.

Bryant Park’s Winter Carnival is back for a second year starting tonight, and with it comes the Simulacrum of Yore Society’s Ice Ball. If you have a nice suit (and, preferably, a top hat, because everything is better with a top hat) or a fancy gown, you can lace up beginning at 7 p.m. for two hours of dancing on the rink — specifically the Vienn-ice Waltz.
