The weekend is so close you can practically taste it. Here are the edible events going on in the next few days to keep you occupied—and sated, for that matter.

Pizza And Wine Pairing: You can get all fancy and highfalutin' with your wine pairings if you want to, but one of the world's greatest matches is wine and pizza. This Sunday, DeSano is going to be serving up slices at domaineLA's Sicilian wine tasting from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m. For $20 guests will taste their way through eight different Sicilian wines accompanied by DeSano's Neapolitan pies. Sure beats your average Sunday supper. You can find out more info here.

All Star Chef Classic at LA Live: It's been said that food is the new rock, but is food the new sport? If this weekend'sAll-Star Chef Classic at L.A. Live is any indicator, then yeah, it sure is.

$1 Sammies At Fickle: We may have given the folks at Fickle a hard time about the unfortunate naming of their zeitgeisty restaurant, but they've been around for a year now, so the joke's on us. To celebrate their first anniversary, Fickle and the attached Sandwich Smith in Little Tokyo are offering $1 specials Saturday, and Monday to Thursday. The Sandwich Smith will be selling its original chicken sandwich with buttermilk fried chicken, garlic aioli, cheddar cheese, creamy coleslaw, pickle chips and tomato for $1 on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Craft beers are going for $3 too.
