Do you have any idea what the street value of this mountain is?
All the pundits are saying it’s supposed to snow on Friday and maybe even into Saturday. I’m not sure if I believe it, since I’ve never seen snow’s birth certificate.
However, for the nonce, I’ll allow for the possibility that it may feather white motes of dust from the heavens. In that case, follow these three suggestions carefully:
Brave the heathen amounts of snow that will litter our streets this weekend and check out the Muscogee County Friends of Libraries Biannual Book Sale. It’s your choice: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday or 2-4 p.m. Sunday. It’s at the Columbus Public Library, 3000 Macon Road.

Frozen yet? Good. Now examine Spicoli’s, the new hot spot at 5762 Milgen Road. It’s open 3 p.m. to 3 a.m. Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 3 a.m. Saturday and 12:30 p.m. to midnight Sunday. The bar is targeting a 30-plus crowd.
Finally, I suggest you do something special for your significant other, since I’ve heard that there’s some kind of day this weekend in which people expect candy, flowers, a nice meal, sweet nothings and your basic whatnot. Find a nice, flat road you can traverse. Try where Airport Thruway turns into Moon, and visit Mark’s City Grill, 7160 Moon Road. Get a nice bottle of red with your meal and enjoy the tranquil scene of snow falling on asphalt through the large windows. You’ve earned it, champ.
Any way you want it
I love Valentine's Day. I've always savored the opportunity to wear my favorite colors (pink and red) and eat candy hearts with cryptic messages like "Bite Me."
You should do the same. No, not bite me. Enjoy Valentine's Day for what it's worth: a chance to celebrate the promise and potential of true love, regardless of whether or not you've already found it.
That's why I recommend these three events, all scheduled for Saturday:
Coupled? Spend a romantic night at Belloo's, 900 Front Ave. The downtown Columbus hot spot offers a $20 champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries special this weekend. Expect entertainment from Claiborne & Friends. Cover is $5.
If you're single or "casually dating," stop by the Cupid's Ball at Flip Flops, 1111 Broadway. J-Mack and Jasper 3 entertain. Need another incentive to attend? I hear Saint Cupid will be there.
Finally, no matter your relationship status, you're probably craving some choruses of "Don't Stop Believin.'" Fortunately, Journey tribute band Chain Reaction will be in town Saturday. They perform at The Roadhouse, 1047 Broadway, and cover is $5. Doors open at 9 p.m.
