Hammer Conversations: Catherine Opie & Diana Nyad

Thurs. Dec. 5, 7:30 p.m.
Hammer Museum, 10899 Wilshire Blvd., Westwood

Talk about girl power! This week’s Hammer Conversations feature chats with two of the most impressive women around. Nyad just became the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without the protection of a shark cage, and Opie is one of the leading photographers and documentarians of her generation.

Fri. Dec. 6, 8:30 p.m.
Largo at the Coronet, 366 N. La Cienega Blvd., West Hollywood

Solow Annual Sample Sale

Scuba Dive with Santa

Various SoCal Sport Chalet Locations

This year, step up your Christmas card game by getting your holiday photo taken with Saint Nick in true California fashion — underwater! The best part?

Just make sure to bring a swimsuit and towel.

Los Angeles Ballet: The Nutcracker

Alex Theater, 216 Brand Blvd., Glendale
