A look at what's going down and coming up for Lake Forest and residents of the surrounding area.

• Tuesday is a meeting of the City Council of Lake Forest, and the four sitting members will try to determine how they will go about choosing a successor for the remainder of Peter Herzog's term, which expires at the end of 2014. Twelve residents have already applied, but the manner in which they will be interviewed, and when, is up for discussion. The festivities begin at 7 p.m.

• Mayor Scott Voigts will be at the council meeting instead of his boss' party in Costa Mesa. Assemblyman Don Wagner is throwing a Beatles Bash, so if you want to listen to great music instead of great debate, you know which event to attend. Click here for details

• If music and debate aren't you're bag, consider Laguna Beach on Tuesday, 7:30 p.m., for "A Christmas Memory" at the Laguna Playhouse. The reviews are good. Click here for details

• Big Bucks Bingo, presented by the Elks Lodge, is Wednesday, 6:15 p.m., as the club continues to raise money to do really neat work in the community, such as this. For more details, click here.
• Oxford Preparatory Academy in Mission Viejo holds its inaugural holiday boutique on Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., promising home decor, ladies clothing, jewelry, holiday items from select vendors and hourly raffles. Click here for more details.

• The 31st annual Victorian Christmas at Heritage Hills is Saturday, 11 a.m. Festive holiday entertainment, children’s crafts, historical exhibits, handicraft vendors, tours through decorated historical buildings staffed by costumed docents. Also, Santa! It's is $3 for children (3-12 years) and $4 for adults. 

• If you missed the slew of boutiques last month, the second annual Holiday Boutique presented by Rancho Santa Margarita Intermediate takes place Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Fifty vendors, raffle, food and art contest are among the spoils for attendees, as well as  a performance by the school band and choir.
