STRAWBERRY LEMONADE MIMOSA
By Alicia Adamczyk, Weekend Roundup EditorI Photos by Adam Glanzman, Daily Staff Photographer

If you hadn't heard (or it wasn't apparent from ev-
erything else on this page), this Friday is Valentine's
Day. Whether you're planning a romantic date night
in with your significant other or riding solo this
year, chances are you're going to need a drink (or
two). With that in mind, here's a Valentine's Day-
inspired recipe. A new twist on an old favorite, the
Strawberry Lemonade Mimosa (adapted from the
FamilyCookbook.com) is sure to please with its
sweet - and slightly tart - flavor and VDay-pink
hue. What's more, it can be made in under 5 minutes
and for less than $10 - and that's something we can
all celebrate this Valentine's Day.

Editor's Note: The author of this article is over 21 years old. If

pagne for sparkling apple cider and nix the Strawberry Daiquiri
Mix. In that case, we suggest you add fresh strawberries to the
drink for a nice finishing touch.

Who needs

By TANAZ AHMED and hosting a "Dance Party
Daily Weekend Contributor Warm-Up" during the screen-
ing. This Grammy-nominated
There are a million things to rap opera has been called every-
do around campus, and you keep thing from "a subtlety free, it's-
promising yourself that one of so-dumb-it's-brilliant work of
these days you'll actually attend art" (Splitsider) to "a blend of the
some of these events. Now here's conventional and outsider art"
your chance to get offyour couch (The New York Times) as well
and explore what Ann Arbor has as "crass, idiotic, baffling and
to offer! Every week, we'll have unintentionally hilarious." (The
three new things for you to try Guardian). Come to your own
on the weekend. conclusions this Friday night at
10:30 at the Michigan Theater.
FRIDAY, Advance tickets can be bought
FEBRUARY 14 online.

Approaches Conference is not
only intriguing, it's also the
perfect academic complement
to your Friday night viewing of
"Trapped in the Closet." Why
was sexuality portrayed the way
it was in the "hip-hopera"? Does
it have something to do with the
medium of the show? Have your
questions answered at room
2435 in North Quad on Feb. 15
and also receive free food.
SUNDAY,
FEBRUARY 16
The Ark is an iconic part of
Ann Arbor history and is famous
for being an acoustic and folk
music venue. If jamming to
Trapped in the Closet wasn't
enough for you or your taste
veers more towards indie music,
check out Graham Colton's per-
formance at the Ark this Sunday
night at 7:30 p.m. Colton has just
released his new album, Lonely
Ones, a product of his collabora-
tion with The Flaming Lips.

It's Valentine's Day and
there's nothing more roman-
tic than a theater packed with
people singing along to a story
about cheating girlfriends and
midget male strippers. Okay,
maybe there is, but R. Kelly's
self-dubbed 43-minute "hip-
hopera," Trapped in the Closet,
is a must see, especially because
the Michigan Theater will be
giving away free goodie bags

SATURDAY,
FEBRUARY 15
The University offers a lot of
thought-provoking and engag-
ing (and free!) conferences on
a variety of subjects, so take
advantage of the chance to
explore a new topic or learn
more about something you've
always found intriguing. The
Sex, Media, Reception: New

By BRAD WHIPPLE
Daily Weekend Contributor
For some people this Friday,
Cupid won't have many arrows
to spare.
It's the time when heart-
shaped boxes of chocolates line
the shelves at Walgreens and
that person you met in your Eng-
lish class last semester reminds
you that he or she is very happy
youguys are ... friends. But folks,
look on the bright side: being
single is far from the worst thing
that could happen. You could be
the coach of the Denver Bron-
cos.
So this is for all those single
souls out there. Take charge this
Singles Awareness Day and have
fun, because that's what life is
about. First things first: Do you
have Netflix?
Because that's fun.
While your friends are mak-
ing an appearance on Michigan
Makeouts, you can sit snuggly
in your bed with a friend you'll
always have. Just remember
that Netflix can become an
unhealthy addiction, so use
it with caution. I recommend
"House of Cards" (the second
season is available on Friday).
Not spending the night on
the town with a valentine
means your wallet will be a bit
fatter. That said, you should
really invest in some comfort

food. My first suggestion is
to grab some Angelo's. Parks
and Recreation's Ron Swanson
once wisely said, "There has
never been a sadness that can't
be cured by breakfast food."
And he's right: I've never been
sad after eating a waffle (unless
it was one I made).
If you're not feeling waffles,
try the Ben & Jerry's 'Ver-
monster.' It's 20 scoops of ice
cream meant for seven people,
but don't we all love tackling a
challenge on our own? While
you're at it, find out where the
CCRB is located if you don't
already know because you'll
need to make a visit on Feb. 15.
Spend the extra time out-
side of binge-watching Netflix
by cheering on Team 'Murica
at the Winter Olympics. Don't
mind media reports about the
killer Sochi water or socially
awkward bathrooms, because
only one thing really matters
at the games: America winning
the gold in curling. It's quite
an intense sport full of brooms
and screaming. Also, have you
seen the Ashley Wagner memes
yet? Priceless.
Treat yourself this upcoming
'holiday,' because you deserve it.
Valentine's Day is as important
as homework worth 5 percent
of your total grade - so sit back
with your waffle and seize the
day.
