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.

Giftcrafting For The Holidays: Forget about the Black Friday mayhem and learn to make your own edible gifts this holiday season at The Institute of Domestic Technology. At this class you'll learn to make your own version of Nutella, dukkah, marinated olives and pancake mix in a jar for gifting your nearest and dearest. The workshop includes four, one-hour sessions, a catered lunch and beverages. You’ll go home with everything from class including wrapping and DIY gift tags, as well as the Institute's signature instruction manual with recipes, plus a materials and ingredient resource guide. You can purchase your spot ($195) and find out more info here.

Big Dave’s Egg Nog at The Hungry Cat: Now that Turkey Day has passed, we can officially say that the holiday season has begun. Scary as that may seem, there's a positive side to it all. Head on over to the Hungry Cat, where they'll be toasting the season with their annual egg nog offering. Chef David Lentz brings his father's famous recipe back to the restaurant each year, and it's kicking off now through NYE. You can order it by the glass or take home a flip-top glass bottle for $38 a liter ($34 for refills). The classic nog sure beats the stuff you'll get at the super market, and is available at both the Santa Monica and Hollywood locations. You can find out more info here.

Drink Alcohol Inside the ArcLight Pasadena Theaters: It wasn't enough for us that we could get our drink on in ArcLight Pasadena's cafe. Right before our films would start, we'd quickly down our beers before stepping in. But now all of that has changed: you can now bring your alcoholic libations inside the movie theaters. Guests who buy beer, wine or cocktails at the ArcLight Pasadena's cafes or the concession stand can bring them right into the screenings starting immediately, which is great because you'll likely be needing a tipple after all that holiday shopping this weekend anyhow.
