DOWNTOWN—Between now and Dec. 23, bring an unwrapped, new children's gift (toy, clothing, etc,) to Wow Bao at either State and Lake or the Jackson location (175 W. Jackson) and they'll trade you lunch or dinner ($5.99 value) for it. The gifts will then be donated to Children's Memorial Hospital. You can help make it the hap-happiest time of the year.

RIVER NORTH—Are you over the traditional Christmas ham? Mercadito executive chef Patricio Sandoval will help you spice things up. Descend to Double A, the restaurant's lower-level lounge, for a $65 hands-on Latin holiday cooking class. Leave knowing how to make tortitas de camaron, taco de bacalao and classic crumbly wedding cookies. Call 312-329-9555 to reserve a space. [EaterWire]

NAPERVILLE—If you want to trek out to Naperville on Dec. 18, your reward will consist of a Johnny Rockets burger, fries and milkshake for only $2.99. The deal, normally $11.99, is for customer appreciation day. Can't make it until a few days later? Bring the kids and they eat free between Dec 20 and 24. [EaterWire]
