Easy as Pie

Food For Thought

November 13

Gather is the newest cookbook by local chef David Robertson (of Dirty Apron fame) and focuses on recipes that can be shared. Look at it as a way to connect with your friends and family—or as a way to challenge yourself (that entire casserole has your name on it). Check out Inform Interiors this Wednesday to celebrate the book launch.

Where: Inform Interiors
Cost: Free

Don’t Axe

Familiar or not with Newfoundland folklore, The Double Axe Murders will leave you shaking in your rain boots. It’s based on the true story of two trappers vanishing from Cow Head, Newfoundland. One trapper’s sister and her companion visit their abandoned cabin, where the mystery only grows. Immerse yourself in this psychological thriller—and maybe sleep with the lights on for the next little while.
