Staff Pick: Sexapalooza at Veterans Memorial

Kristen Schmidt, Columbus Alive

It turns out Canadians do know how to have fun.

This weekend's Sexapalooza is an import from our neighbors to the north, where branches of the comically named "consumer trade show" draw visitors by the thousands. Veterans Memorial - which just last week was crawling with brides-to-be dreaming of the perfect wedding - will be host to seminars, stage shows, product demonstrations and vendors that are anything but innocent.

The company behind Sexapalooza touts it as a fun, upscale show. It is also strictly for a mature audience - admission is for the 21-and-over crowd only.

Tickets are $20 at the door or $30 for a weekend pass. Save $5 by buying online at
