Life is like a box of chocolates– you never know what you’re gonna get. NU & Improv’d, a Northeastern improv troupe, is hosting a night of improv comedy with the theme: “A Box of Chocolate, but like, a gross one.” Even though Valentine’s Day has passed, NU & Improv’d welcomes all couples for a fun-filled date night. If Valentine’s Day didn’t go well, they also invite you to “come cry with some other V-day rejects.” 8 p.m. – 9 p.m.; Northeastern AfterHours; Free.
