WHOOPI GOLDBERG: If you’re fiendin’ for some whoopi, head over to DPAC for some face time-ish with the super-comedienne who’s taking a break from her stint on “The View” for a rare stop in Durham for some stand-up and audience Q&A. ... Not what you had in mind when we said whoopi? Can’t really help you with that. But takin’ your boo to dinner and the show could be a first step. Worth a shot. Where: DPAC, Durham. When: Friday, 8 p.m. $55-$75. | More info

SCOOBY DOO LIVE!: Scooby-Dooby-Doooo ... grab your kids or steal, er, borrow, someone else’s. The quintessential '80s gang is loadin’ up the Mystery Machine and headed to Raleigh to take out the trouble-making ghost haunting a local theater. VIP/PIT tix available for serious scoobsters for access to a pre-show party one hour prior, best-in-house seats and a scooby swag bag. Score. Where: Memorial Auditorium, Raleigh. When: Friday to Sunday, times vary. $14-$67. | More info

JANUARY MIXER AT COGLIN’S: Coglin’s Law ... well he had a few — but no doubt cocktails and dreams were one of them. Done. Head over to Raleigh’s newest namesake ’80s and ’90s hot spot as Downtown LIving Advocates kicks off its recent opening. Mix and mingle with your downtown neighbors over free apps, crafty cocktails and raffle prizes. If nothing else, maybe you can take it as a space to showcase those Carlton skills you’ve been secretly honing all these years. Where: Coglin’s, Raleigh, 226 Fayetteville St. When: Wednesday, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Free. RSVP by Wednesday, January 23 at 12:00 p.m. and we will have a name tag waiting for you at the door.
