As much as we loathe frigid temps, dry winter skin and ample amounts of shoe-destroying salt during this time of year, we do look forward to cuffing season (a.k.a. when it’s damn cold outside and all you want to do is cuddle under the covers with a hottie or furry animal). So, if you’re looking to hibernate until the first signs of spring, we rounded up everything coming (like a new season of HBO stand-up comedy series 2 Dope Queens, which *basically* doubles as self-care) and going (like Oscar-winning flick La La Land) on Crave this month.
