Including exploring Best of Columbus results, Scarface, Women Aloud and Crew SC
Harvest Pizza was one of this year's Best of Columbus winners, winning Best Gourmet Pizza.
Winter's reached back out to us from beyond the grave, which is to say, this weekend's weather sucks. Stay inside if you can. Go to some shows. Eat some brunch. Watch some movies. As always, here's what I'd do this weekend if I could be everywhere all the time.
Scarface at Xclusive Elite Entertainment Center
It's a good week for hip-hop concerts in Columbus. Start yours with Scarface on Friday, move on to J. Cole Tuesday, then hit up the Vince Staples/Earl Sweatshirt show Thursday, April 2. Oh, and there's a breakin' battle Saturday that sounds hella fun.

Women Aloud at Dude Locker
Three of this year's five Columbus Alive Bands to Watch were fronted by women. In other words, it's no secret to us that women are putting out some of the best music in the city. We're thrilled all that wonderful talent's been gathered in one place for a day of poets, painters and punks.
Explore this year's Best of Columbus winners
You might find fault with some of the winners Alive readers picked in this year's Best of Columbus, but the reader poll still serves as a great guide to the best the city has to offer, particularly if you include the top three finishers of each category.
