Burbank Turkey Trot 5K/10K Run
More than two thousand people lace up their shoes and get their run on during the annual Turkey Trot 5K/10K Run.

Go Get Em Tiger Remakes Starbuck’s Holiday Menu
Everyone knows it’s the holiday season when Starbucks rolls out the Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Gingerbread Lattes, Peppermint Mochas, and Eggnog Lattes. Now, you can head to Larchmont and skip the Starbucks because this new coffee spot is recreating the famous drinks on Thanksgiving morning from opening to noon. Here’s the real highlight though, instead of using syrups, each drink will be made with real ingredients and top notch coffees like Heart Roasters, 49th Parallel, and George. You can get them hot, cold, and in shakes. 230 N Larchmont Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90004

34th Annual Free Thanksgiving Day Feast

Supper and Skate at LA Live
Although our winters consist of 55 degrees (and we think it’s freezing) we can pretend its a snowy wonderland with a night of gourmet dinner and ice skating. Includes a prix-fixe dinner at a participating L.A. LIVE restaurant, ice skating and skate rental. $30/adults, $20/children; November 30-January 2, 5:30 pm, daily; LA Market Restaurant, JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE, 900 W.
