For those who are not looking forward to the day filled with cupid, chocolate and love, this one's for you. Off the Cuff, a co-ed acapella group, is hosting a concert Saturday evening in the Current. The concert will feature Choeur du Roi and Octaves, the oldest acapella group on campus. If you’re going to avoid Valentine's day anyway, you might as well have fun doing it.    

Safe Space RVA February Markets

A pop-up community event that supports local LGBTQ+ and BIPOC artists, small business owners and makers, is hosting two events this weekend.
