    ICY '09: While most of the town is shuttered for the day, a few spots keep it going, especially around Pasadena (well, when there are a million people in town for a certain event, you stay on the busy side). One spot that's open? Pasadena Ice Skating Center. If you've put on five pounds in the last five days -- or six pounds, or seven -- today's the day for those resolutions to kick in... Thursday, January 1, 1-8PM. 310 E. Green Street, Pasadena. 626-578-0801

    TWO MARX MASTERPIECES: The holidays, though joyful, sometimes have a touch of ennui. One sure bet to shake it off (if only for a few hours)? Anything -- anything -- with Groucho Marx. Man's a genius, zingy and a master of the quip. "A Night at the Opera" and "Animal Crackers" screen at The Aero. Groucho, please dear man, make us less grouchy.
