Shed the dud; find the stud. Plagued by bad relationships, man-sharing situations, or no relationship at all? Have you ever thought that maybe you are not the problem—but the bad choices you keep making are? Dr. Grace Cornish, author of 10 Bad Choices That Ruin Black Women’s Lives, takes her usual five minutes of televised wisdom ironing out on-air squabbles between disillusioned mates with Rolanda, Ricki Lake, and Montel way past the commercial break. Each detrimental decision earns its own chapter: “Sisters Dissin’ Sisters,” “Using Your Finance to Maintain His Romance,” and even “Exchanging ‘Sexual Dealings’ for Loving Feelings.” Complete with an “S” formula for choosing Mr. Right, places to meet Mr. Right, and subtitles that sum everything up—”Looking for Love Through Strip Poker? You May Only Get Quick Sex and a Joker”—Cornish sheds light on finding true love. At 11:30 a.m. at Georgia Brown’s restaurant, 950 15th St. NW. Free. (202) 393-4499. (Ayesha Morris)
