5Ks come in all flavors these days. In October, runners don lederhosen and quench their thirst not with water but with dark German beer. Then there are the color runs, the disco runs and the rubber-duck-inspired runs. But among these novel exercises in community and, well, exercise, you will find the Hotcake Hustle. This pancake-inspired race features multiple courses (10K, 5K or fun run), all of which culminate in a hotcake breakfast, beer garden and live music. Fervent running followed by maple-syrup-laden carbohydrate bombs and beer? Sounds about right. Tickets start at $20.

Ty Sefton, Kamel Maude and Cory Kuchinsky are no strangers to fermentation. Among the three of them, they have more than 20 years of home-brewing experience. They took their combined know-how and turned it into TKO Libations. This Lewisville brewery, which had its soft opening in October, will officially open to the public Saturday with a full day of fun, festivities and beer (duh). Beer and doughnuts are served at 11 a.m. Throughout the afternoon and into the evening, enjoy tappings of award-winning brews, including Gingerbread Monster, the seasonal, ginger-laden porter that won first place for Best Specialty Beer at the 2016 Brew Riot home-brew competition. There will also be live music, a food truck and a gourmet cheese tasting.
