Including a Crew playoff game, Ohio Comic Con, Trauma and more


Will Crew fans have something to cheer for Saturday? Currently one of the hottest teams in MLS, chances are good. Dispatch file photo.

If last weekend was for the nerd, this one could, arguably, be for the jock. The Blue Jackets, Crew, OSU football and Cavs are all in action this weekend. Sportsball not your thing? That's cool. There's plenty of diversionary stuff going on too. Like Ohio Comic Con, Trauma,

Friday

Sour Fest at Yellow Brick Pizza and Olde Towne East's Parsons Carnival

Man, OTE is it Friday. If Yellow Brick Pizza's Sour Fest, featuring nothing but sour beers ain't enough to get you to the east side, the Parsons Carnival should be. Each participating business will make a low-tech carnival game like ring toss, and there will be merit badges made by Abnormal Allies for going to all the games. (Merit badges!)

Trauma at The Bluestone

Saturday

Crew vs. New England Revolution playoff game at Crew Stadium

Crew home playoff games are simply the best. And with two of the hottest teams in MLS facing off, this should have the makings of a classic. (Just don't let Tony Sanneh take any penalty kicks.) I'll be in the Nordecke (and tailgating prior to the game), so if you see me, say hi!
