Dear Rain: Stay the *&$# away!!!
OK, heroes, this is it – the last Friday in May and the final chance you get to sit along Broadway listening to bands wail the night away. Approach the 1100 block of Broadway between 7-11 p.m. for two, count ‘em, two bands at the outdoor concert series.
Please welcome Deeper Shades of Soul and Classic Addict. If it rains, blame them.
Saturday, prepare yourself for a full day, because I’ve got stuff to do Sunday and aren’t planning on giving you anything enjoyable to do on that day. The Phenix City Arts Council’s Art Show and Sale is at 1002 Airport Road from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you want them to like you, bring money.
Saturday night, hit the Columbus Civic Center at 7:30 p.m. for the Columbus Lions game. Why? We don't know if the Woodbats will be serving alcohol at their games, and there’s no reason to watch sports unless you have a beer in your hand.
The best medicine
Staring at downtown partiers' ill-fitting summer shorts isn't the only way to get a good laugh Friday night. Ditch your friends at the outdoor concert and head to the Columbus Civic Center to see Cedric "The Entertainer." Action starts at 8 p.m. and tickets are $37.50 and $47.50.
After the show, head back to Broadway for Friday's performance by AC/DC tribute band Hells/Bells. The Nashville-based act entertains at The Roadhouse, 1047 Broadway, at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10. Getting girls to acknowledge your request to be shaken all night long is extra.
Finally, save time in your schedule to check out "Monsters vs. Aliens: An IMAX 3D Experience" at the National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center's IMAX Theatre on Patriot Park. Shows are 1 p.m., 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Sunday, you can catch the movie at 1 and 7 p.m. Tickets are $8-$10.
