TIFF09: What we got

georgearomeros_011

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!

FineDiners.ca: Red Wine Marinated and Braised Beef Short Ribs

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!
