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

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

Here's the part where I trot out that old adage about only boring people being bored, because, you guys, this weekend is all kinds of crazy. There's Gallery Hop, Free Comic Book Day, the new Avengers movie, tons of concerts (from rap to Hall & Oates!), beer events, Hell City, and more. As always, here's what I'd do this weekend if I could be everywhere all the time.


You know want to see Daryl Hall & John Oates at The LC
