Need an alibi this weekend? Consider embracing all things festive and check out Santa's Cool Holiday Film Festival - vintage films will show at four theaters in L.A. - or try a performance of "Christmas 4 Bukowski" at Zombie Joe's Underground theater in North Hollywood. And if you're heading east, all the better. Time will fly at the Major League Dreidel spin-off in New York. Head to the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn to check out the topsy-turvy tournament.
