"Free food and beer." Not many words can make my palate stand up and pay attention as quickly as those do. If the prospect of noshing savory crepes from Leslie's Creperie and washing them down with Rockmill Brewery beer appeals to you, too, free your schedule on Saturday.

Our friends at Crave, Columbus' new dining magazine, are presenting Taste of the Hills Market on Saturday. Free crepes and beer for the first 200 visitors are just the start. Chat with Crave's editor, Shelley Mann, on the veranda. Head inside for more food and beverage samples, and people-watch as cyclists in the Market to Market ride complete one leg of their trip. Did I mention there will be carrot cake?
