Learn how to master the perfect thanksgiving meal

A bit intimidated at the idea of pulling together a thanksgiving feast? Not to worry — stop by Get Cooking Edmonton on October 5 for a crash course with Doreen Prei and Kathryn Joel.

Revisit a cinematic classic on the big screen

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Dirty Dancing, Metro Cinema is screening the flick on October 5 — so if you haven’t had the chance to see it on the big screen yet, now is the perfect opportunity.

Listen to some classic hits with The Music of ABBA
