Things We Love: Columbus Commons

By
From the May 24, 2012 edition

So much cool stuff happens at this welcome patch of Downtown green space during the warm weather months, like the Columbus Alive Summer Music Tour kickoff, which starts at 7 p.m. Friday (see details on page 62). I’ll also try to go back Saturday. The whole day, business is going down. Most of the daytime events are designed for kids, but “E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial” is showing at 9 p.m., and there are fireworks at 11 p.m. What better way to greet summer this weekend than with Columbus bands, a young Drew Barrymore and things that go boom? —Jackie Mantey
