It took some effort, as the TIFF website crumbled under the demand for single tickets this morning, but we got our order in and got a decent list of films to see next weekend!  We’re still going to try to fill in some gaps, but here’s what our schedule looks like right now:

Thursday September 10
Midnight – Jennifer’s Body

Friday September 11
9:30am – The Happiest Girl in the World
12:15pm – Huacho
3:00pm – Creation
5:45pm – Perrier’s Bounty
9:00pm – Passenger Side
Midnight – Daybreakers

Saturday September 12
10:30am – The Informant!
2:15pm – All Fall Down
9:00pm – A Serious Man
Midnight – George A. Romero’s Survival of the Dead

Sunday September 13
10:00am – Cracks
2:30pm – Vallhalla Rising

As expected, we didn’t get a lot of first-screenings, so we’ll be missing out on some of the Q&A, usually a highlight.  But really it’s all about the films, so TIFF09 HERE WE COME!!

UPDATE:  And now that we’re officially on our way, I’m filing this link here for later reference:  Where to get late-night drinks during TIFF – establishments that are open until 4am during the festival.

UPDATE 2: Added two more films to our list: Passenger Side and A Serious Man!

So Eric and I got together last weekend to smoke some Bacon – check out the article over on FineDiners.ca about how we built our own cold smoking rig with some bits and pieces from Home Depot!

My latest post over at FineDiners.ca is my soon-to-be-world-famous Red Wine Marinated and Braised Beef Short Ribs (aka Dave’s HAMMERED Beef Short Ribs!).  These were AMAZING!  I can’t wait to make them again!
