Bohemian Press Annual Valentine's Day Card Sale
(Regis Center for Art, Minneapolis)
Do you like your Valentines to be cheap and a little off the beaten path? Then this card sale is for you. Bohemian Press is the U of M's faculty and student print club, so anything you find here probably won't overlap with what's available at a grocery store or at Hallmark. Stock up. 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Thursday.Hotell
(American Swedish Institute, 2600 Park Ave., Minneapolis; 612-871-4907)
American Swedish Institute's free film series returns this week with a trio made by female filmmakers. Hotell stars Alicia Vikander in a story of a woman who enters group therapy in search of happiness and escape from her control-freak ways. Soon she finds herself enjoying the freedom and anonymity of hotels. This screening is free, but reservations are highly recommended. RSVP here. 7 p.m. Wednesday.
Made By Hands: Beyond Chocolatedome
(Bauhaus Brew Labs, 1315 Tyler St. NE, Minneapolis; 612-276-6911)
Still looking for something sweet for your sweetheart? Made By Hands is putting together a night that will feature local artists and artisans, beer, and Mad Max, because... why not? Items to peruse include jewelry and scarves (fashionable!), candles (romantic!), oils (sexy!), and leather goods (kinky!... or, actually, practical). The beer will also be plentiful, as the event takes place at a brewery. (And maybe your lady or dude would appreciate a growler for V-Day?) Meanwhile, Mad Max movies from all eras will screen as DJ Shane Kramer spins tunes. Thursday 5 to 11 p.m.
