The week of Thanksgiving is somehow upon us. And for those who are looking forward to something other than gathering with family and friends for turkey and "all the things," we have a couple of alternative options to savor this week.
Tuesday, November 26
Chocolate, Cheese, and Bubbles Class at Scardello Artisan Cheese
There is still a seat or two available for this epic class that focuses on our favorite things — chocolate, cheese, and bubbles, of course. Some pairings are expected and others are unique and seemingly out of left field. Tickets are $40 and the class starts at 7 pm.

Guest Chef Tailgate BBQ at Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas
Pitmaster and guest chef Jack Arnold from Snake River Farms and Big Green Egg invade Dallas to showcase the ultimate grilling experience at the Pavilion. Executive chef Christof Syré is collaborating with Chef Jack for a mouthwatering menu, in addition to tips and grilling techniques on the Big Green Egg.

Tickets are $65 and the event kicks off at 6 pm.
Light up Lowest Greenville starting at The Libertine Bar
The neighborhood is coming together for a great cause and offering special drinks and snacks, in addition to selling unique holiday ornaments. A tree-lighting will take place later in the evening. The event is partnering with Reverse Food Truck, which is an organization that collects food with the goal of putting hunger in the rearview mirror. Admission is free; however, all attendees are encouraged to bring some of the organization's most-needed items as a donation. The fun starts at 4 pm.
