Omnivorous is a culinary party starring 14 chefs from some of Montreal’s finest restaurants, with a soundtrack by DJ Hatchmatik. Entry includes your choice of 10 dishes. 1201 St-Laurent, 7 p.m., $50.25 advance

Sarah Polley’s multiple-award-winning autobiographical documentary Stories We Tell screens as part of RIDM’s on-going RIDM en plein air series, at Mile End’s Marché des Possibles. Park adjacent to Aréna St-Louis (5633 St-Dominique), 8:30 p.m., free

Intensely Uncomfortable Live is a launch party for a new local sketch comedy show that was made for TV but deemed too weird to air.
