Weekender Calendar Feb. 8

dHmqBKuz36JBtyii71wH0t_ritECURAkYPzvvmN2R64What: Adam Trent Magic Show
Where: Lincoln Center
When: Saturday, Feb. 16
2 p.m. and 6 p.m.
Cost: $9-$12

He can sing, he can dance and he can do magic; Adam Trent is clearly a performer through and through. Case in point: he’s been on the Disney Channel. That doesn’t mean a college student can’t enjoy this show, though. And yeah, it’s a week in advance, but your beloved Collegian wanted to make sure you could get tickets. We’re just looking out for you.


What: Valentine’s Day Heartbreaker
Where: Fort Collins Museum of Discovery
When: Saturday, Feb. 9
11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Cost: $9.50 for adults

$7 for seniors and students (with ID)

$6 for kids ages 3-12

Free for members and kids under 2

Maybe you’ve already been to check out the new Fort Collins Museum of Discovery, but if not there’s no better chance than this Saturday. Bring your valentine and leave your squeamishness, because this Saturday you can dissect a heart. After all, as Student and Teacher Programs Coordinator Katherine Regan wrote in an email to the Collegian, “Valentine’s Day is all about love and hearts, right?” The event is free with museum admission as detailed above, so be sure to get your money’s worth and check out the rest of the museum as well.

What: Comedian Jason “Mutt” Rogers
Where: GNU Gallery
When: Friday, Feb. 8

6:30-8 p.m.

Cost: $2

Last time he performed at the GNU Gallery, Jason “Mutt” Rogers was wildly popular. That’s probably why he’s back, if deductive reasoning is not your strong suit. There’ll be other comedians too according to GNU Gallery’s Facebook page (, and what’s a better value than about five comedians for two bucks?


What: “Birds of a Feather: Flights of Fancy”
Where: Global Museum of Arts and Cultures
When: Now until April 13
11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Cost: $5 for adults
$3 for students and seniors

Given how popular “Angry Birds” is for some unfathomable reason, it’s apparent America likes birds. Or dislikes pigs. Whatever. This exhibit contains works of art all featuring birds, including sculptures, mosaics, textiles and paintings. It’s cheap and it’s birds. Birds.
