Editor's picks: 22 things to do this weekend in Columbus

Columbus Alive

First legit three-day weekend of the year brings with it a crap-ton to do. Hit up the Crew SC game Friday? Or get the first scoop of Jeni's for the year? Get tacos and margaritas at the Columbus Commons prior to the free roeVy show? Or watch "The Neverending Story" on the big screen? As always, here's what I'd do this weekend if I could be everywhere all the time.
