Do you feel that whisper of winter in the air? Isn’t it grand? Temps are coming down, hot cocoa is calling, and best of all—ICE is back!

So come on Marina del Rey people, dig out your skates (or rent a pair there!), plop on your cutest winter cap, and get ready to glide (or playfully stumble) across that glittering iced wonderland.

All Dogs on Deck! Hornblower Is Yapping It Up in Marina del Rey

Calling all dog lovers! In the mood for a doggy dream cruise? Oh it’s happening in a big way this Saturday on Hornblower’s first-ever Dogs on Deck Yappy Hour Cocktail Cruise. This is a new annual tradition that encompasses all that is right in the world— dogs, dog people, and Marina del Rey! The two-hour cruise is $55 for one person (plus friendly pooch on a leash), and totally worth it—especially because a portion of proceeds will benefit the LA Animal Service’s orphaned pets. What a worthwhile way to spend a Saturday, right?
