Who watches the Watchmen?
Well, me, for one. And you should, too. Also, if you haven’t read the graphic novel then pick up a copy this weekend and enjoy it with a nice glass of Boone’s Farm.
The movie “Watchmen” opens today at theaters across the country. Find one in Columbus, hide some of those tiny bottles of wine in your girlfriend’s purse and go to it.
That’s a task for Friday or Saturday. I suggest Saturday, since you don’t want to miss Chippendales at H2O from 8-10 p.m. Friday. Ladies only, of course, but men can enter afterward. You might think it’s cheesy, but hey, you just might meet someone there. Tickets are $25.
Be sure to save a couple of dollars for Laundry Day, when you should head over to Fountain City Coffee, 1007 Broadway, and check out the newest edition of “Arden,” CSU’s literary magazine. Of course, it won’t be as good as when your poem appeared in your college lit mag back in the day, but it’s good to keep up with current undergrad-level verse.
Pour some sugar on me
Don't worry if you can't keep up with Alan's "It's Raining Men" choreography at the Chippendales show. You can also spend Friday night at the downtown Columbus block party, when one cover gets you into the majority of Broadway bars.
You'll pay about $7-$10. You're more than welcome to parade around introducing yourself as Dirty Dave, the most recent Chippendales reject.
Saturday, ditch your usual McDonald's breakfast and enjoy a leisurely morning meal at La Panaderia Milagrosa, the new bakery in the shopping center with La Nacional, 4403 17th Ave.
You'll broaden your cultural horizons and enjoy tons of tasty treats -- stuff that's notches above the sugary goodness of a McGriddle.
Amped up on flan, you'll be in a perfect state to hit up the kickoff party for The Big Read. This year, the community reading project focuses on "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer." Visit Port Columbus Civil War Naval Museum, 1002 Victory Drive, for a Big Read extravaganza. It's 1-4 p.m.
