Columbus-area partiers looking to start the weekend early have plenty of options.
Need plans? Try the weekly Thursday martini tasting at downtown Columbus hot spot Belloo's, 900 Front Ave. The event, which costs $20 for individuals and $35 for couples, lets you sample a variety of mini martinis. Steve McRay entertains and there's no cover.
Or, get wild at the Shanty Shack, 4475 Warm Springs Road. The rockers from Lynam perform. Members of the Birmingham-based band say they sound like a combination of Foo Fighters, Weezer and Guns N' Roses. No cover.
