December tends to be a pretty busy month, but don’t let that get in the way of having a fun weekend (don’t make us nag you!). Here are some ways to have a blast this weekend, from legendary musicals and Lego art to ice skating and cookie-baking deliciousness.
If you are headed to a live performance or exhibit, please check the venue or production’s website for the latest COVID safety precautions before you go.

The groundbreaking musical “Rent” is back; piano star Jon Najamatsu will be playing Beethoven with Symphony San Jose; two beloved kids’ holiday ballets are opening. There is A LOT going on this weekend. Here’s a rundown.
2 PLAY: Ice is nice
To skate on, that is. And the Bay Area’s holiday ice skating rinks should be a delight on a lovely weekend like this one is supposed to be. We’ve got the deets on 12 rinks right here.
The director known for such films as “Basic Instinct” and “Showgirls” is back with “Benedetta,” which we’re pretty sure will be praised and pilloried with equal fervor. It tops our list of new movies you should know about.
