Not sure where i'd be living, but I wouldn't mind having to trek the metro lines to get to a rink, assuming that's a reasonable thing to do.
I dug around this thread, and it seems like talk of DC-area beer leagues stopped after page 1 /sadface
Thanks for your input!
Kettler Capitals Iceplex is two blocks from the Ballsrom metro stop on the orange line. Fort Dupont and (bloody hell, blanking on the name of the Alexandria rink) are within Metro's radius but not sure if there's a convenient stop. Fairfax Ice Arena and Tucker Road are at the edge of Metro service and do not have a convenient stop. Also, I don't think Tucker Road has an adult league. Reston SkateQuest, Ashburn Icehouse, and Laurel Gardens should all be outside Metro's service area.
