LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

Run for puppies. Hunt for elves. Drive through a Dodgers holiday experience. Enjoy snow flurries. Eat a stinky burger. Watch a kitschy Christmas holiday slideshow. Shop a unique pop-up market. See boats get lit.

This is a holiday weekend and there are plenty of ways to spend it, mostly from the comfort of your couch. Here are a few of the best.

Friday, Nov. 27 - Thursday, Dec. 31
