BUY

Cops & Doughnut Deliveries Long before The Bangles immortalized “all the cops in the doughnut shops,” the two shared a special relationship. Special Olympics is capitalizing by offering you a chance to get Krispy Kremes delivered to your morning meeting by a real man in uniform. Consider tipping him that chocolate glazed. Order by December 3, delivery on December 10, $12 per dozen (minimum five dozen), sonv.org.

READ

How to Beat up Anybody Four ninjas, two henchman and one evil robot. They’re standing right behind you, and they all look pissed. What should you do? Step 1: Pick up a copy of Judah Friedlander’s book. $18.

SEE

Tangled Disney’s latest animated production is an entertaining traditional fairy tale with CGI that recalls hand-drawn animation. It’s simple but fun and a worthy addition to the princess canon. Playing citywide.

Love and Other Drugs Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal have a natural, appealing chemistry in this romantic drama. Playing citywide.

GO

Great Santa Run 13,000. That’s how many Santa-suited runners are needed to break the world record at this annual Opportunity Village benefit. Go on, make Rudolph proud. December 4, day-of registration begins at 8 a.m., $25-$45, Town Square; preregistration at PT’s and Sierra Gold locations.

Christmas Carolla Some comics appeal to gays. Others have ethnic followings. Adam Carolla writes jokes for the most maligned group in America: married white guys. See the professional ranter in all his scathing glory. December 4, 8 p.m., $32-$45, House of Blues.

Oodles of organ Get blown away by holiday music. The local chapter of the American Guild of Organists’ winter concert features works by Bach, Pachelbel and more. December 5, 7:30 p.m., free, Christ Church Episcopal, 2000 S. Maryland Parkway.

The Dandy Warhols If you only know the Portland psych-rockers as “that other band from Dig!” grab a copy of 2000’s Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia, then check out this first-ever Vegas gig. December 8, 9 p.m., $15-$20, Hard Rock Cafe (Strip).
