In case you missed it on Tuesday, we've got a free five-night ski getaway lined up for one lucky Ski & Board subscriber. And unless you happen to be a late-night talk show host, you should be feeling pretty lucky.
Things to do for January 14, 2010
Beachside Toddies, Mannequins and Beer Pong With Fries
The weekend will miss Big Balls Pete.
To help you along with your more unspeakable resolutions, Melrose lingerie institution Agent Provocateur is unloading the goods at 75% off, both in store and online. With four for the price of one, that's four resolutions off the list.
Hot Toddies at The Beachcomber
To somehow pull through these low-70s winter afternoons, head to the Malibu Pier for a new menu of hot toddies by the shore—from the classic (whiskey, water, honey and lemon) to the steaming Cinnamon Toast, spiked with rum. They've also got blankets, but no Slankets.
Like Andrew McCarthy before you, you've long regarded mannequins as true works of art. A dozen artists at this opening couldn't agree more—their canvas is a mannequin, and their task is to conceptualize a new best friend. To our knowledge, none built Kim Cattrall.
Grab your best beer-pong-playing friend for Saturday's tournament in Glassell Park's revered beer den. There are prizes for the top three teams, and the Frysmith truck will be on hand to properly fuel the fierce competition. Like protein shakes, but with chili and cheese.
Over the hill, esteemed local favorite Marché is getting in on these Sundays they keep hearing about—finally opening their doors for a weekly changing four-course menu. To start, Beef Bourguignon and Crème Caramel. The total is $30, plus $5 for a quartino of wine. So, $35. Or $40. (Okay, $45.)
