FIRST FRIDAYS: Ideas, creativity, and the future are all at the forefront of this, the first Natural History Museum Friday night wingding of 2011. Those are maybe three things you've been mulling over as you've made your resolutions these past few days? It's all so serendipitous. Not serendipitous, but still super, is all the rocking going down in the museum's African Mammal Hall. 5:30-10 p.m.
"PULP FICTION": What were you doing last Friday night at midnight? Were you covered in those paper strings that we don't know the exact name of, but are something like extremely ambitious confetti? Were you asleep? Do you wish it had all been different? Your midnight tonight could be very talky, very California, very Tarantino, very time-gone-mad. If that's your thing. The New Beverly, midnight
"DISNEY ON ICE": If you missed Mickey and the "Toy Story"-ers in "Let's Celebrate!" -- the rink-centered party recently stopped at Staples and in Anaheim -- you have another chance. The animated characters are twirling in Long Beach through Sunday, Jan. 9. Hope Woody keeps his hat on during those triple lutzes. Bet he does.
