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.

Hot Toddies at The Beachcomber
WARMUP

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.

Now through March, Mon-Fri, 5-7pm, The Beachcomber, 23000 PCH, 310-456-9800

Friday
Mannequin City at R&R
FREEZE

Mannequin City at R&R

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.

Opening reception Jan 15, 7pm-midnight, no cost, R&R, 929 E Second St, Suite 106

Saturday
Beer Pong at Verdugo
ATHLETICS

Beer Pong at Verdugo

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.

Jan 16, doors 1pm, tournament 3pm, Verdugo, 3408 Verdugo Road, 323-257-3408

Sunday
Sunday Supper at Marché
QUARTINO

Sunday Supper at Marché

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.)

Sundays starting Jan 17, 4-9pm, Marché, 13355 Ventura Blvd, 818-784-2915
