Outdoor skating rinks pop up much like gas-price spikes: right around Thanksgiving.

This one, in Monterey, is at the Portola Plaza Hotel and is open from 10a-10p (so layer yourself).

"Celebrate the holidays amidst the scenic coastline at Monterey on Ice’s seasonal ice skating rink located in Custom House Plaza behind Portola Hotel & Spa. Skaters can spend the day in a winter wonderland right by the Bay."

Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for children.

Work on your holiday shopping wish list at the 53rd Annual International Car Show at Moscone Center. The show runs through Wednesday night (all days are 10a-10p).

There are some killer rides -- combustion as well as electric -- but the roster of 'car of the year' nominees is worth the price of admission:

North American Car and Truck of the Year nominees: Car of the year nominees expected are: Audi A8, Buick Regal, Chevrolet Cruze, Chevrolet Volt, Ford Fiesta, Hyundai Sonata 2.0T/Hybrid, Infiniti M37/56, Jaguar XJ, Kia Optima, Mazda Mazda2, Nissan Juke, Nissan Leaf, Volkswagen Jetta and the Volvo S60.
