The Plateau has a brand-new boutique and café focusing on locally produced goods, and while Café MRKT has been in soft-opening phase since November, they’re throwing an official grand opening party this evening, which doubles as the launch for local fashion label Beurd. 838 Mont-Royal E., 5–9 p.m., free

Bakersfield Mist is an international hit by U.S playwright Stephen Sachs, directed for Centaur Theatre by Roy Surette.
