The lovely Schapiro lounge is hosting a “Roast of Love” on Thursday night, featuring Control Top, Chowdah, Fruit Paunch, and some brave stand-up student performers. The event promises it to be an evening of “hatin’ on love,” so go on over if that’s something that appeals to you.

Sabor is having their first Spring semester workshop…and it’s free! Bring your other half to Lerner 477 at 5 pm for an hour of salsa instruction, followed by an hour of social dancing. Hint: it’s good practice if you want to attend Sabor auditions later this weekend!
