I want to guess Thursday night, but I'm not completely sure.If you're just looking for open skates, IceLand is your best bet. With school back in session now, you don't have to worry about kids skating around your ankles.
Shaker Heights is a gorgeous rink. It was my favorite when I played in high school. Great seamless glass, a rock hard surface. Great if you like your skates really sharp like I do.
If you're looking to play open hockey, which you didn't mention, but I will, IceLand has it periodically. Winterhurst has it late on Friday nights, as well as the Dan Kostel Rec in Garfield. It's at 9:45 in Garfield, $12 on Friday night. That's where I still play every Friday.
Back to IceLand, they're just looking for money anywhere possible. The open skates are long, but that's because they don't get much traffic and they just hope that people show up sporadically. It's a nice place and a good surface as well. The one time I went, my buddy and I were two of six people there for about two hours, so you shouldn't have a problem.
