Pre-COVID, we had a weekly post with upcoming weekend events. We simply 86’d that weekly feature as everyone retreated to their homes and our reviews became a series of photos featuring takeout containers.

We’re still in our homes, but people are keeping things interesting with virtual events. (Nick Rallo recently wrote about how Scardello is doing this.) So here are some upcoming ones for you to check out, if you’re tired of growing your own starter or waiting for your kimchi to ferment.

A reminder: When picking up any foods, please practice social distancing and wear a mask.

The owner of Whisk has set up a day for you to get a free Nutella crepe — no purchase necessary, no questions asked. Could we find a sweeter deal?

What: Free Nutella Thursday

When: 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, April 30

Where: Pick up at Whisk Crepes Cafe, 1888 Sylvan Ave. (West Dallas)
