Swimsuit Ice Skating @ Seaside Ice
The popular Swimsuit Ice Skating Weekend returns to sunny Seaside Ice--the only outdoor ice skating rink on the beach. Skate in your swimwear from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Prizes will be awarded for the best bathing suit, too! (Of course, you can also skate in your "regular" clothes from 4-10 p.m.) Admission to this 7,200 square foot outdoor rink is $14 for adults, $12 for kids 12-under (non-skaters can hang for free); admission includes skate rental.

Orson Welles Double Bill @ Aero
The American Cinematheque is taking a look at the life and work of Orson Welles. Today at the Aero Theatre is a double feature of two of his performances from the mid-1940s. First up at 7:30 p.m. is Jane Eyre (1944) in which Welles plays the bright and charismatic Edward Rochester to Joan Fontaine's titular governess. (As an aside, Fontaine is still living--she's 92!--as is her estranged 93-year-old actress sister Olivia de Haviland.) Next is Tomorrow is Forever (1946) co-starring Claudette Colbert.

Furoshiki Thanksgiving Bundles Workshop
Furoshiki are a type of traditional Japanese wrapping cloth that were frequently used to transport clothes, gifts, or other goods. Head to SMMoA for a food drive and art workshop to benefit the individuals at the Ocean Park Community Center (OPCC) - the largest and most comprehensive provider of housing and services on the Westside to low-income and homeless communities. From 2-5 today you'll create an original furoshiki using a variety of drawing and printmaking techniques. The workshop is free for SMMoA members and donors to the food drive. Without a donation: $10 general admission (pay at the door).
