Event: “Failed Love” at the Art Museum
’Tis the weekend when everything is pink and red, and restaurant reservations are exclusively for two. Whether you are manually melting pots of chocolate to make a life-sized bust of your crush or re-reading a card from your grandmother, the University Art Museum will make sure you don't spend this awkward holiday alone. “Failed Love,” an annual event hosted by the Museum's Student Advisory Board, will include student performances, poetry readings, chocolate and, of course, art that was inspired by aching hearts present and past.

Show: Princeton Juggling Club presents J.U.G.G.L.E.
If you've seen Princeton Juggling Club's trailer for their annual show, then you know juggling isn't just about keeping three balls in the air at the same time. Sometimes it's four apples. Sometimes it's five pins. Sometimes it's six balls, with more being tossed in. Judging from the video, audience members can also expect to see some quality yo-yo action and group efforts. Whatever your plans are this weekend, don't drop them — but definitely think about throwing J.U.G.G.L.E. into the mix.
Thursday and Friday, 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
