Buy a Pint, Give a Pint

Salt & Straw - Larchmont

240 N. Larchmont Blvd. , Los Angeles, CA

12:00pm

Salt & Straw’s Thanksgiving menu and Buy a Pint, Give a Pint promotion will be available at the Larchmont shop throughout November, including the festive ice cream flavors below. Buy a pint of any Thanksgiving flavor and Salt & Straw will donate a pint to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank to give families a sweet treat on Thanksgiving.

Salted Caramel Thanksgiving Turkey - A head rush of sweet and salty with a pinch of adventure. All the flavors of a roasted turkey, its juices and the caramelized onions underneath, are packed into a turkey fat caramel ice cream, then speckled with handmade fried turkey skin brittle.

Spiced Chevre Pumpkin Pie - Pumpkin cheesecake ice cream with an unexpected twist of maturity. Like scooping out the middle of a pumpkin pie and throwing it straight into a spicy, goaty, salty cheesecake. With goat cheese from Soledad Goats in Mojave, CA, this is guaranteed to rival any ice cream in yum-factor!

Honey Bourbon Corn Pudding - This flavor was inspired by one of the Malek’s oldest family recipes. Sweet, light, and buttery Corn Pudding is a staple on most Thanksgiving plates around the country. For their ice cream, they bake their own corn pudding using lots of locally-crafted bourbon from Ascendant Distillery in Santa Barbara.

Cranberry Walnut Stuffing - The delightful accompaniment to any Thanksgiving feast. This combination of cranberries with Central Coast walnuts is the perfect nuanced flavor combined with hearty nostalgia. Locally grown walnuts pair perfectly with molasses brown bread stuffing based ice cream.

Sweet Potato Casserole with Maple Pecans - Sweet potato ice cream, Vermont maple-infused marshmallow pillows, and pralined pecans. These pecans have a buttery sweetness with slight bitterness, delightfully cutting through the starchy potatoes.

The Dirty Version: On Stage, in the Studio, and in the Streets with Ol' Dirty Bastard

Vroman's Bookstore

695 E. Colorado Blvd, Pasadena, CA 91101

4:00pm

On the tenth anniversary of Ol' Dirty Bastard's death, his right-hand man and best friend, Buddha Monk, presents The Dirty Version--the first biography of the hip-hop superstar and founding member of the Wu-Tang Clan, to be written by someone from his inner circle.  Ol' Dirty Bastard rocketed to fame with the Wu-Tang Clan, the raucous and renegade group that forever altered the hip-hop world. ODB was one of the Clan's wildest icons and most inventive performers, and when he died of an overdose in 2004, at the age of thirty-five, millions of fans mourned the loss. ODB lives on in epic proportions and his antics are legend: he once picked up his welfare check in a limousine; lifted a burning car off a four-year-old girl in Brooklyn; stole a fifty-dollar pair of sneakers on tour at the peak of his success. Many have questioned whether his stunts were carefully calculated or the result of paranoia and mental instability.

David Sedaris presents and signs Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk

Vroman's Bookstore

695 E. Colorado Blvd, Pasadena, CA 91101

7:00pm

Featuring David Sedaris's unique blend of hilarity and heart, this new collection of keen-eyed animal-themed tales is an utter delight. Though the characters may not be human, the situations in these stories bear an uncanny resemblance to the insanity of everyday life. In "The Toad, the Turtle, and the Duck," three strangers commiserate about animal bureaucracy while waiting in a complaint line. In "Hello Kitty," a cynical feline struggles to sit through his prison-mandated AA meetings. In "The Squirrel and the Chipmunk," a pair of star-crossed lovers is separated by prejudiced family members. With original illustrations by Ian Falconer, author of the bestselling Olivia series of children's books, these stories are David Sedaris at his most observant, poignant, and surprising.

- This is a ticketed event. Customers can obtain a ticket by purchasing a copy of David Sedaris' new book, Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk, from Vroman's main store or Hastings Ranch
