Aside from much Christmas dining and drinking and scrambling for gifts this long holiday weekend, there is still plenty to do, like brunch, checking out new restaurants, and grab the last pies from shuttering Royer’s Pie Haven. There’s even two more food and drink events this weekend to add to your calendar.

SOUTHEAST — It’s Festivus for the rest of us at Independence Brewing tonight, Wednesday, December 23 from 6 to 9 p.m. Attendees can build Festivus poles out of beer cars, arm wrestle, and create decorations,. Airing of grievances are encouraged. Flying Pig Provisions will be serving sandwiches, too. [EaterWire]

EAST SIXTHQui’s next Noche Buena will be held on Sunday, December 27. Reservations are recommended for the a la carte menu, which includes suckling pig, chicken thigh adobo, and tamarind halo halo. Check out the full menu below. [EaterWire]
