Weekend picks: La Isla Bonita

February 24, 2012 

Looking for ways to spice up your weekend? Try out VFW Post 665's Latin dance night, which begins tonight. Every Friday, the post will offer Latin dance lessons, followed by a night of dancing.

If you want to practice your moves in your living room first, here's a song to get warmed up. Yes, it's Ricky Martin and Glee, but I couldn't resist.

Other "caliente" events this weekend:

-- All eyes on me in the center of the ring just like a circus -- Barnum Bash is at the Columbus Civic Center through Sunday

-- Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive...it's the Columbus Comic Book show, this Sunday at the Coca-Cola Space Science Center.
