November 24, 2010 In Los Angeles: Holiday Cheer

It's the day before Thanksgiving, and hopefully you're home from work and the kids are home from school. Get everyone out of the house (and out of the cook's hair) with a trip to the Santa Monica ice rink. You can also sneak a little culture in with a free Thanksgiving concert by the Jr. Philharmonic Orchestra or a performance of The Nutcracker at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater.
