Strangers on a Train: a play by Craig Warner, based on the novel by Patricia Highsmith. Two strangers. One conversation. The perfect murder. 

6th Annual YYC Pizza Week: In 2014, Wanda Baker, founder of YYC Pizza Week, established a 10-day, annual event with charity, community and pizza crusts in mind. Each year, local participating restaurants craft an original recipe in a competition to be lauded Calgary’s best pizza. From every purchase, a slice of the proceeds goes to Calgary Meals on Wheels, thereby directly supporting the needs of Calgarians by making sure they are well-fed. In a joint effort, more than 40 participating restaurants and our pizza-lovin’ community raised over $42,000 in the past five years.
