Way back in July, we told you about Minus5˚ Ice Bar, the all-frozen tourist haunt that will open in the Hilton hotel in midtown. At that time, the place was slated to open in November, but now the Times brings word that the spot won't open until the spring. In the meantime, New Yorkers looking to drink in sub-freezing conditions are advised to just wait until January and drink outside. [Diner's Journal/NYT, Earlier]
