The weekend is here. But instead of staying indoors to relax with your Netflix queue, why not try something new and stretch your boundaries with a class? From dumpling-making to glass-etching to Afro-jazz dance, these five classes are equal parts education and entertainment, and are sure to liven up your weekend.

Learn to toss homemade pizza



Everyone loves pizza--but instead of ordering delivery, why not learn to make it yourself? Culinary store Vom Fass will be teaching guests how to make a variety of different pizzas throughout the day, and providing recipes to replicate your favorites at home. The cost of admission includes two slices of homemade pizza for lunch, and can be used as a credit towards the purchase of oils, vinegars, and spices at the store.

Afterwards, you'll be able to enjoy a beer of your choice (included in the ticket price), and get 15 percent off food and nonalcoholic beverages.
