Weather you like it or not
There are four seasons here in Columbus – summer, which lasts about six months; fall, which hangs around for a couple of weeks; awful fall, which can get really cold; and spring, which is just around the corner.
With the recent snows having all disappeared, we are truly on the cusp of spring. Since it’ll only last a few weeks, you need to take advantage of it.
Friday night, the rockers from Pistoltown perform at Flip Flops, 1111 Broadway. It might be too cold to sit outside, but at least you shouldn’t freeze while walking from your car to the nightspot.
Saturday, it should get up to 63 degrees and be sunny. Hit the new Rails-to-Trails – the 11-mile almost-paved walking and bike trail – that extends from downtown to the east part of the county. Portions along Talbotton and Warm Springs are already paved.
Alternatively, you can huddle inside a bar on what will likely be a beautiful day and play some cards. Visit the Shanty Shack, 4475 Warm Springs Road, at 2 p.m. for a free game of poker.
When are you going to get married?
I love it when random people ask me that question in public places. Because naturally, without a ring on my finger, I totally have a wedding date on the horizon.
Maybe I should reconcile my bitterness by attending Sunday's Ultimate Bridal Expo at the RiverMill Event Centre, 4903 First Ave. The event is 1-5 p.m. It's $3 for the bride to get in and $5 for each of her guests; children ages 12 and younger are admitted free of charge.
Angry about the abundance of wedded bliss? Use the rest of Sunday night to savor some of those secret single behaviors we learned about on "Sex and the City."
Watch "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" at 10 p.m. Sunday night on the E! network. Trust me, this show doesn't hold up very well in the world of couples-friendly TV viewing.
Or, enjoy Sunday night karaoke at new Columbus hot spot Spicoli's, 5762 Milgen Road. Action starts at 8:30 p.m. Request "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" and dedicate the song to me.
