The Wexner Center for the Arts is hosting its annual Off the Grid party on Saturday, March 8. Beginning at 9 p.m. (or check out the VIP party at 8 p.m.) guests will enjoy music from Nick Tolford & Company, George Brazil and more, plus food, drinks and an evening of dancing. Tickets cost $60 until March 7 and $70 the day of the event (VIP tickets cost $100). Off the Grid benefits education programs at The Wex. And if you can't make it to the event or simply want to start supporting Off the Grid now, there's a Warm-up Party tonight, Feb. 27, at 8 p.m. at Ace of Cups. Admission is $5 at the door and features music from three Columbus artists. You'll also have an exclusive opportunity to purchase tickets (cash only) tonight only for $50. To learn more about either event or to purchase tickets, visit WexArts.org/OffTheGrid. –Heather Weekley, @heather_weekley
