Celebrate Valentine's Day with the Museum of Broken Relationships


Some couple was in love, so they moved in together, and then one of them fell for someone else, so the broken-hearted one went out and bought an axe, and chopped up all the other one’s stuff:

Two weeks after she left, she came back for the furniture. It was neatly arranged into small heaps and fragments of wood. She took that trash and left my apartment for good.

See the axe and other relics of busted up relationships at the Museum of Broken Relationships, a traveling exhibition opening tomorrow at Root Division. Frankly, heaps of thrashed furnishings would probably make a more compelling museum exhibit, but hopefully the axe is okay. Link.

Thrillist describes the party thusly: “free food and drinks, like Trumer Pils and a cocktail called “The Love-bite”, powered by an all-breakup-song playlist.” Link.

    Cole Hardware has a great Valentine’s Day display in their front window.

    They always have clever-ass displays (and are a kick-ass store in general…) Their printed newsletter has an article about the crew that puts them together.

    OMG! someone should have submitted something to the museum without their SO knowing, and then take them to the exhibit, and be like “oh, that looks familiar, see you later!”. Breaking up in the museum of broken relationships…. the circle of life would be complete.
