Editor's picks: 18 things do this weekend

Columbus Alive

Jeesh, it's July, you guys. How did we get here? Time's inevitable march onward brings us Doo Dah Parade this weekend, in addition to Red, White & BOOM! (which I'll be avoiding like the plague), neighborhood fireworks displays, barbecues and the Geto Boys. As always, here's what I'd do this weekend if I could be everywhere all the time.


Kizzy Hall with Brat Curse and Connections at Ace of Cups

Three of the city's best bands at one of the city's best music venues for a measly $5? Yeah, I'm there.


Geto Boys at Xclusive Elite Entertainment Center

Scarface, in my very humble opinion, is one of the best, most underrated rappers from '90s. And the Geto Boys?! Are you kidding? This is bonkers. Best see this now before the group implodes.


Doo Dah Parade + Block Party

Doo Dah is the best thing about July, and that's really saying something considering how much I hate parades.


Freedom Play Sunday at Arcade Super Awesome

Suddenly, we're in an arcade boom in Columbus. I finally got into Old North Arcade this week, but I'm hoping to hit up this pinball palace Sunday. This day's event won't be in the new digs above Yellow Brick Pizza, but instead at 780 King Ave.
