    Limit List by Number and Property Value

    I'm trying to make a macro that displays all events/entries using getEvents but limit the results to a number (controlled by a macro parameter) as well as a property value on the actual entry.

    Apparently I can't use .Where() on the collection?

    This is what I have right now and it works:

    var eLimit = Convert.ToInt32((Model.MacroParameters["limit"] != null && Model.MacroParameters["limit"].ToString() != "null" && Model.MacroParameters["limit"].ToString() != "") ? Model.MacroParameters["limit"] : "3");
    List<CalendarEvent> events = Calendar.getEvents(DateTime.Now.Date, DateTime.Now.AddMonths(12), "calDate", "calendarEvent", false);
    foreach(var item in events.Take(eLimit)){

    BUT, I want to limit this even more to only events that have the checkbox calFeatured checked. I tried events.Where("calFeatured = true").Take(eLimit) but it errors and says KS.Umbraco7.Calendar.Core.CalendarEvent does not contain a definition for Where. I know this probably wouldn't work anyway as I'd have to do something like item.content.GetPropertyValue("calFeatured") = true or something, but how do I do that in a Where clause and how do I stack that before the Take()?

    Basically, I want all events that have the bool property calFeatured checked but then limited to the latest int controlled via a macro property. I can do one or the other, but not both in the correct order.

    Is there a better way to do what I want? I'm new to razor and C#... I'm learning as I go but my real strength is Frontend so this is all very foreign to me.
