If you haven't gone on the Surly Girl Farewell Tour yet, that should probably be your top priority this weekend. A Columbus institution says goodbye Sunday, just in time for one last Bloody Mary. As always, here's what I'd do this weekend if I could be everywhere all the time.


Watch the sci-fi creeper "Ex Machina"

One of the best films of the year so far, "Ex Machina" will appeal to fans of fellow studiomate "Under the Skin." Maybe not date-night worthy, but then again, maybe! If creepy AI robot-things are your bag.
