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.

Tasting Table's Lobster Rumble: Tonight the Cooper Design Space in Downtown L.A. will transform into a lobster-lovers fantasy. Tasting Table is hosting their annual Lobster Rumble, where there'll be 14 lobster roll stations that will compete for the title of fan favorite. There will be sides and Cape Cod potato chips, naturally, as well as a Häagen-Dazs Dessert Deck including sweets from 5 local dessert purveyors and bars pouring Stella Artois beer, Bordeaux wines, cocktails, and Califia Farms beverages. Tickets are $100 per person and can be purchased here.

National IPA Day: Hopheads rejoice, because today is all about you (as if every day weren't already IPA day in craft brewing). There are plenty of bars around town where you can enjoy a bitter, citrusy India Pale Ale, but if you're after something new on the scene, head over to The Hermosillo tonight, which houses the new Highland Park Brewery. They'll be tapping the brewery’s Enter The Future IPA, and Brewmaster Bob Kunz will be on hand for questions and toasting. The event goes from 5 p.m. until 2 a.m. You can find out more info on their site.

Big Bite Bacon Fest: If you have a pulse, you probably have a penchant for pork. In which case, the Queen Mary is the place to be on Saturday. More than 40 restaurants and food vendors will be making everything from bacon donuts to pig candy and bacon burgers. Tickets also include beer samples from Drake's, Golden Road and other local and national breweries. There are two sessions—one from noon-2:30 p.m. for lunch and 5-7:30 p.m. for dinner. Tickets are $35 for general admission. VIP tickets start at $55 per person and allow you access to the events an hour early. You can find out more info here.
