Quench those clichés about the heat in the Valley with a 90 minute session in Downtown Burbank. Winter sports aren't exactly a pastime in LA, so little ones—and those of us who look helpless on the ice—can rent Bobby the Seal, an adorable, plastic skating aid. The rink (Third St and Orange Grove Ave) is introducing themed nights this year, including Ugly Sweater Mondays, '80s Night Wednesdays and Thursday Night Fever (8-10pm), as well as performances by the Los Angeles Ice Theater (Sat in Dec, 5:45pm). Plus, head to the other side of the rink to see the official Burbank Christmas tree (lighting ceremony Dec 5, 6:30pm).
