Boldly going, going, gone
You drank too much on Cinco de Mayo. I can see it. Now you’re moping around the office, surreptitiously glancing at ledger-enqurier.com to see what you can do to redeem yourself this weekend.
First, grab your pink lawn chair and head to the Friday Night Concert Series in the 1100 block of Broadway. Sure, I recommended this last week and I’ll likely recommend it for every Friday evening in Columbus during May. If you have a problem with it, take it up with Peggy Jenkins, who performs from 7-10 p.m. Will the Rhythm Roosters be there? I dunno. Go find out.
Keep that chair with you Saturday, when you check out “The Taming of the Shrew,” a Shakespearean piece performed at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at the Riverfront Amphitheatre. Looking for the beat with two backs? Then go watch “Othello.” We’re all about romance this weekend.
And speaking of romance, there’s nothing quite like a young, roguish Captain Kirk trying to mack his way into Uhura’s heart. Check out the new Star Trek film when you get a free moment this weekend.
Just add sand
The warm weather could inspire you to make a weekend trek to Florida, but face it: We're in a recession. Not to mention the fact that it's really hard to find a road trip partner who shares your passion for cow poker.
So with Florida out of the question, go for the next best thing: Friday's beach party at Flip Flops, 1111 Broadway. The Heath Jackson Band entertains and cover is $5. Inner tube optional.
But trust me, ladies, few of us have worked out enough to flaunt just a bathing suit on the club scene. Ditch that plan and instead head to downtown Columbus fashion retailers K-Rawk's Closet/Bougie Boutique, 1101 Broadway. They're open until 9 p.m. Fridays, so you can pick up a cute outfit and head directly to the party.
Spend Saturday night showcasing your spring glow at the Keni Thomas show at the Phenix City Amphitheater. Thomas, a former Army Ranger and Columbus resident, performs at 8 p.m. Tickets are $5, or free with military ID.
