Diversity is the theme of this weekend's entertainment menu. 

On Saturday, sit in on an online seminar with politicians and academics discussing a matter of world import that offers a chance to think globally. On Sunday, enjoy the musical performance by a husband-wife folk duo in a coffee house setting that has all the markings of a cozy, intimate, local gathering with neighbors. 

Also on Saturday, there's athleticism on display at US Figure Skating's synchronized skating sectional championships. It's followed  on Sunday by the Asian cultural celebration that marks the Lunar New Year with dancing lions and dragons. 

Just a handful of events, but they check a lot of different boxes.  Hopefully, you'll find something here for you!
