The SRC fitness studio is holding a TRX training course from 5:30-6:30 p.m. today. I’m personally, tragically out of shape and could probably use some exercise. If you’re also looking for an intense way to break out of the monotony of your winter slump, this might be a cool class to check out. – Kyrie Long / Editor in Chief

From Goku to Gandalf, coming this Friday and Saturday, PopCon 7 will be host to everything pop culture.

If you just want to hang out, you can visit the local vendors and artists as well. So what are you wait for? Fly you fools! – Alex Frania / Photo Editor

Have you got a Magic: The Gathering deck burning a hole in your closet, but no place to use it? Well the Comic Shop is having a Commander Tournament starting at 1 p.m. The entry fee is $20, and the tournament as a whole will go until 9 p.m. – Ben Ellis / Web Editor

Sunday, November 12

I keep promising myself I’m done recommending people go to the movies, but I can’t help it: I love cinema and I frequently find myself looking for any excuse to browse through movie showtimes. For example, this year is the 75th anniversary of “Casablanca” and Regal Cinemas is hosting a special screening tonight at 7 p.m. If you’ve been looking to sweep someone off their feet, there’s nothing quite like 1940s romance. – Kyrie Long / Editor-in-Chief
