Thursday: Arts districts like Wynwood are downright dependent on the presence of deserted, decrepit buildings. So come celebrate one such building this Thursday with A Love Affair, In and Out, featuring live music and site-specific installations by a group of local artists and friends.

Friday: From what we hear, Mrs. Bush spent eight years biting her tongue, disagreeing with Dubya's stance on gay marriage, abortion, and the war on terror. She and daughter Jenna will be at Books & Books on Friday to discuss her new memoir Spoken from the Heart. Juicy stuff. Free admission for those who buy the book.
