At noon on January 15, La Peg chef-owner—and amateur ice-sculptor—Peter Woolsey carves an ice bar out of 16 massive cubes, and will serve drinks from it until it literally melts. The bar will be open during La Peg’s regular business hours—including happy hour from 5 to 7pm—where folks can warm up with a drink from a special winter menu alongside three fire pits—all while enjoying views of the Ben Franklin Bridge overhead.

Food options from the bar include burgers, wings and grilled cheese, or you could opt for more-upscale fare from La Peg’s full dinner menu, which includes butternut squash soup, “Thanksgiving dinner,” and crab cakes.

Swing by at 5pm each night to catch local artists creating ice sculptures to complement Woolsey’s work. Those will be illuminated and on view through Pegsicle’s run—or until they too just become puddles.
