🖼️ New Narratives

Details: The Cleveland Museum of Art's exhibition "New Narratives: Contemporary Works on Paper" is made up entirely of print and drawings, showcasing the stories that artists can convey on simple paper.

💭 Our thought bubble: See it. The works are a snapshot of history, focusing on events like the Haitian Revolution and Antebellum South.

ğŸŽ¤ 216 Day

Details: Tomorrow is Feb. 16, meaning it's 216 Day. You can honor Cleveland's area code with a DJ party at B Side Lounge featuring the sounds of local hip-hop. Tickets are $2.16.

💭 Our thought bubble: See it. Cleveland hip-hop doesn't get the credit it deserves, and the event is promising "surprise special guests."

☕ Cocoa Run

Details: It's $35 to participate in the second annual 5K (or 1-mile walk) on Saturday at North Coast Harbor. The event includes a shirt, medal and cup of hot cocoa.

💭 Our thought bubble: Skip it, unless you run like the wind. It will be around 30° with a chance of snow. Cocoa can't cure that.
