MEETING: There’s a public meeting tonight at Casa Loma to discuss the viability of turning the historic house/fairy-tale property into a museum, hosted by the Casa Loma Corporation Board and City Councillors Joe Mihevc (Ward 21, St. Paul’s West) and Josh Matlow (Ward 22, St. Paul’s). In the event you’re not all that familiar with the grounds, there’s a free tour beforehand at 5:30 p.m. for attendees. Casa Loma (1 Austin Terrace), 5:30 p.m. site tour, 7 p.m. meeting, FREE.

FILM: Earlier this month, teams of filmmakers were racing around the city (and against the clock) to shoot and edit shorts for the Toronto 48 Hour Film Project. All the entries were shown on November 19 and 20. Tonight, the top twelve shorts will be screened, with more than $10,000 in prizes to be awarded—including a chance to go to Cannes. Revue Cinema (400 Roncesvalles Avenue), 7 p.m., $10.

COMEDY: The funny gals of She Said What have a new batch of sketches whipped up for She Said What a Way to Go, and are welcoming fourth member Carly Heffernan back into the full-time fold (she’s on her last week of performances in a two-year run in Second City’s Mainstage Revue shows). Joining the ladies on stage will be comics Steve Dylan, Mark Forward, Matt O’Brien. Comedy Bar (945 Bloor Street West), 7:30 p.m., $12.
