Horror fans get their own festival in Falls

From the Niagara Falls Review:

Horror fans loved having a Niagara Falls convention this weekend dedicated to all the things they love.

“I like it because it’s a lot more intimate, it’s more segregated to the horror genre,” said Aaron Kellar, who Saturday dressed up as Freddy Krueger from A Nightmare on Elm Street during the first-ever Frightmare in the Falls at Scotiabank Convention Centre.

Daltrey reigns o’er Niagara Falls

From the Niagara Falls Review:

As any longtime Who fan will tell you, the best concerts were always the ones that felt like they could fall apart at any second. A blown amp. A destroyed drum kit. At their peak, The Who brought a volcanic energy to the stage that made every show unruly and unpredictable.

So it was amusing — and a bit old school — when an angry Roger Daltrey abruptly halted the show at Fallsview Casino Monday night. He had been battling his ear piece all night, and it finally boiled over during the crescendo of Baba O’Riley. Not content to muff the ending, he barked orders to someone off stage while the band stood frozen.

“We’ll start it again!,” he yelled, and his anger fueled an even better Baba as the crowd roared in approval.

Michael Smith: No food pedestals, just a celebration

From the Hamilton Spectator:

For having such an exacting profession, Chef Michael Smith isn’t a fan of perfection.

He knows the importance of nailing recipes as the best-selling author of 10 cookbooks. But he’s also made a name for himself by advocating for free-styling in the kitchen in his Food Network Canada series, “Chef at Home.”…

Smith will bring that message to Niagara later this month when he headlines the latest instalment of Tastes in Niagara, a series of food shindigs hosted by Fallsview Events that features some of Canada’s most recognizable chefs.

The event, which happens on Wednesday, Nov. 22 at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse and Lounge in Niagara Falls, includes a four-course meal of Smith’s recipes, a cooking demo by the well-known culinarian, a meet and greet and some “hijinks and hilarity up my sleeve,” Smith promised.
