Just in time for the winter season, TWA Hotel at John F. Kennedy International Airport opens its curling rink to family travelers. The rink is set up on the tarmac, near the 1958 Lockheed Constellation airplane turned cocktail lounge.


For those unfamiliar, curling is a cross between bowling and shuffleboard. Players take turns sliding stones across a rink toward the bullseye in a target zone. The quirky Olympic sport dates back to 16th-century Scotland.
