Weekly What To Do: Snow Days, Cookies, Puppies and Killers

Wow, I know I'll be listing Superbowl stuff next week, however, there's plenty of places to get a cold one and eat some great snacks this weekend. Killers looks like a nice action/horror/ thriller to get lost in over the weekend. Coming from "the producers" of The Raid, which means... they... yeah, we hate when they put that on posters. Anyway, two murders, one good, one evil will duke it out.

The rural community of Elwood is fenced off from the outside world in the wake of an apparent global plague.
