Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

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.

Throwback Specials at Freddy Smalls:The cocktail scene here in L.A. has certainly gotten nostalgic, with throwbacks and classics taking center stage on both restaurant and bar menus. Starting this Saturday, Freddy Smalls will be launching a weekly old school menu, including some pretty recession friendly-prices. It will feature a prime rib dinner, classic cocktails and incredible music from the 60s. Plus, if you come dressed the part (think of the Rat Pack), you'll get a free cocktail. You can find out more info here.

Marmelade Making at Mother Moo: One of our favorite parts about winter is the abundance of bright citrus. This Saturday from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., Mother Moo in Sierra Madre will host a 2.5 hour class, exploring citrus as a zero waste fruit. They'll show you how to make seasonal marmalade and share tricks to making perfect candied oranges. Students will leave the Moo barn with two jars of marmalade that you've made at Mother Moo, plus a scoop from their dairy. Snacks and morning coffee will be served. The class runs
$100. You can make your reservations here.

Super Bowl Sunday Suppers: Of course, the big to-do this weekend is the game. We've collected our favorite places to eathere.
