1. Celebrate one last time before Lent begins with the Deep Ellum Wine Walk — Mardis Gras Thursday, Feb. 16, 6-9 p.m. As usual, collectible wine glasses are $10. Bring your friends!

2. Valentine’s Day may be over, but heart-themed art exhibits throughout the city are still going. The Bath House Cultural Center in East Dallas will continue its El Corazon showcase until March 6. While you’re there, you might as well take advantage of the nice weather and visit White Rock Lake, too. Free.

3. Kurt Vonnegut fans won’t want to miss Aaron Posner’s “Who Am I This Time? (& other conundrums of love),” adapted from three of Vonnegut’s short stories into a comedy featuring only seven actors. You can catch a showing at the Circle Theatre in Ft. Worth from Feb. 16 until March 11, with performances Thurs.-Sat. at varying times. Starting at $20.

4. If you’re a fan of cocktails (and we all are here at the University of Dallas), you’ll love the Dallas Museum of Art’s Shaken, Stirred, Styled: The Art of the Cocktail exhibit, featuring a range of pieces from 1800s punch bowls to modern-day shakers. If you’re a poor college student (which is also a given), you’ll also love that the exhibit is free.

5. As usual, the Alamo Drafthouse in Richardson has a great selection of movies this Saturday. If you like German cinema, culture or history, you’ll enjoy the New German Cinema Showcase: “Wings of Desire,” a screening of the 1987 classic about angels set in Berlin. Get there at 4 p.m. for a reception featuring the Ackerman Center for Holocaust Studies and the Dallas Goethe Center. $5.

6. Finally, if you’d rather have fun on campus, look no further than Wine Down Wednesday in the Rathskellar. This week features UD greats Father Thomas and Dr. Moran, recently back from Rome. Free.
