ST. JACK—Chef Aaron Barnett is closing down the block adjacent to St. Jack, from 6 to 10 p.m. on Thursday night, to celebrate a gang of winemakers who'll be on hand to savor this year's batch of Beaujolais Nouveau. The block party will also feature snacks by Justin Woodward (Castagna), Cathy Whims (Nostrana), Rick Gencarelli (Lardo) and Roscoe Roberson (Coopers Hall). Tickets are $35, and $40 the day of.

PIX PÂTISSERIE—From 2 p.m. to midnight on Saturday, November 28, you're invited to come marvel at—and eat—the 30 different flavors at macarons gracing Pix's pastry case. Each little cookie will run you $2.25, but you'll be treated to one on the house if you participate in the cupcake stomp (which is exactly as it sounds, so bring your stomping boots).
