Thursday 2/3

Toes on the Nose / In Euphoric Company


10 p.m. – 12 a.m.

Free with ND/SMC/HCC ID

Two student bands take the stage at Legends. Last year’s Battle of the Bands winner Toes on the Nose follows In Euphoric Company, a trio made of up Sacramento natives that gets regular play on WVFI and has been making the rounds in the indie-music blogosphere.

Friday 2/4

McGlinn Casino Night

South Dining Hall

10 p.m. – 1 a.m.


Welcome to fabulous South Bend, home of McGlinn Hall’s signature event. All students are welcome to enter the Texas Hold ‘Em tournament or take a few rounds at the blackjack tables – playing with paper money, of course. The fake cash can be turned in for the raffle. If you don’t like gambling, then there’s nothing like dancing in left-left of South Dining Hall.

Saturday 2/5

Flannel Formal

Oak Room of South Dining Hall

10 p.m. to 1 a.m.


Blizzard got you freezing and feeling cabin-feverish? Pull on some snuggly flannel and snowshoe up to the Oak Room on the second floor of SDH. The “barn dance,” sponsored by the Texas and Minnesota clubs, promises to be a warm and ironic good time.

Sunday 2/6

“The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest”

Browning Cinema, DeBartolo Performing Arts Center

3 p.m.

$3 for students, $4 for senior citizens, $6 general public

The final film in the Millenium trilogy concludes DPAC’s weekend marathon of all three original Swedish adaptations of the bestselling books.
