Because God knows you’ll need a good Scotch to get you through the holidays, stop by Fountainhead (1970 W. Montrose Ave., Ravenswood, 773-697-8204) for a seasonal tasting to find your perfect liquid companion with help from Peter Wilkins of International Beverage. The fee of $30 includes multiple samples plus light bites—buy tickets here.

Go beyond mulled wine and nog with a seasonal cocktail class at CH Distillery (564 W. Randolph St., West Loop, 312-707-8780). Bartender Zachary Heller will share recipes for beverages such as the Rudolph The Cross-Eyed Reindeer (cinnamon-allspice vodka, apple juice, pomegranate syrup, and ginger beer), and the $100 cost of the class also includes a tour, appetizers, and a bottle of infused spirits—call to make a reservation.

Thursday, December 11

Spend your Thursday evening reflecting fondly on bygone summer barbecues at Porkchop (941 W. Randolph St., West Loop, 312-733-9333), where they’ll have a five-course meal of potluck-friendly favorites complete with beer pairings from Moody Tongue. The $40 tickets can be snagged here.

To celebrate two decades of proffering Parisian pastries, both locations of Toni Patisserie (65 E. Washington St., Loop, 312-726-2020; 51 S. Washington St., Hinsdale, 630-789-2020) will be offering free slices of an anniversary cake today while supplies last and a $20 gift card for every twentieth customer.

Stopping in at the Christkindlmarket? Bring your mug to Bohemian House (11 W. Illinois, River North, 32-955-0439) afterward to get it filled with a beer of your choice with the purchase of a small plate. The deal runs Sundays through Tuesdays until December 23.
