DoorDash deals this weekend, holiday workshops at Tripli-Kit and free pumpkin spice dipped cones, here’s what’s popping up as the gingerbread season kicks off.

Friday, November 29-Sunday, December 1

If you’re a big softie for pumpkin spice, Wienerschnitzel has something nice. Starting Black Friday through Sunday, the world’s largest hot dog chain is treating guests to a free pumpkin-spice dipped cone with any purchase.

Saturday, November 30 and Sunday, December 1

Door Dash is celebrating mom-and-pop diners, neighborhood cafés, and local restaurants on Saturday and Sunday. They are encouraging customers and L.A. residents to dine locally as they shop small with $5 off $10 or more when you order from select restaurants on DoorDash and use the promo code EATLA.

Participants include Jon & Vinny’s, Bay Cities Italian Deli, Uncle Paulie’s Deli, Dave’s Hot Chicken, Chicas Tacos and Lazy Daisy of Beverly Hills. That means you can get Chicas Tacos’ famous beer-battered fish taco with Caesar salad on top for free or just an excuse to get those famous braised meatballs from Jon & Vinny’s for a bit less.

A lineup of holiday workshops are scheduled for the next few weeks at the Playa Vista culinary retail shop Tripli-Kit at RUNWAY, as well as the 2nd annual gingerbread house competition.
