1) Get your yoga (and yoga pants) on. The new Lululemon location opens inside Polaris Fashion Place in about five minutes (12 p.m. Friday, Oct. 12). Check out the deals they’ve got on their painstakingly-designed-for-your-comfort workout gear for opening weekend. Then scurry your spandex-clad bottom to Om-H-I-O at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 13. Om-H-I-O is Lululemon’s massive annual outdoor yoga class at the Oval on Ohio State’s campus. The class is free. More information here.
2) Shop Reduction. The Short North’s hippest retail stores converge once a year for Reduction, a huge event that allows them to get rid of extra items and shoppers to pick up some seriously smoking sales — up to 90 percent off past season items. The sale is from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13, inside Skully’s. This year’s stores include Milk Bar, Rowe, Brigade, Tigertree, Substance, Ladybird and the Candle Lab.
3) Reconsider vintage photographs.
That’s what artist Jaime Hesper did for her new show at Image Optical in the Short North
. “Moments Reconsidered” stars Hesper's oil paintings inspired by vintage, found and historical photographs. Hesper employed expressionist texture and color in her new versions of the images, leaving her paintings feeling at once familiar but new.
