Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

If you're in a relationship, you've probably already spent all your money on Valentine's Day gifts for your significant other.

If you're currently unattached, you've probably spent all your cash on episodes of Downton Abbey and tubs of Ben & Jerry's to keep you company.

Either way, you're broke. So it's a damned good thing there are plenty of free events to keep your spirits up and your debt down this week.

Monday

Voices of Haiti: The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting presents a multimedia exploration of Haitians living in the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake at the University of Miami. RSVP as space is limited.

Black Love: Also held at the University of Miami, this Black Awareness Month forum analyses how Black relationships can be demoralized or praised in the media by focusing on famous sitcoms like Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, The Cosby Show and My Wife & Kids as well as music videos and news outlets.

Tuesday

David A. Ansell: A Chicago-based physician and health activist, the author stops by Boynton Beach City Library to discuss his book County: Life, Death and Politics at Chicago's Public Hospital.

Wednesday

International Noise Conference 2012 Kickoff: If you're into loud and rowdy, head over to Burger & Beer Joint to see live bands like 90s Teen, Slashpine, and Kitten Control.

Tommy: This week's screening at SoundScape Park is The Who's rock opera classic.

Thursday

Drum circle: Cruzan Rum Bar invites you to bring your own instruments and awkward dance moves to the fireside every Thursday night.

(((Shake))): RSVP for free admission before 11 p.m. to Shuttle Life and Henry Kinkle at The Vagabond.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
