With the warm weather comes very busy calendars. Make sure to mark off these can't-miss events on your calendar:
CCAD Spring art sale.
Loann Crane Center for Design
First choice ($50):
9 – 10:30 a.m.
General Admission ($5): 10:30 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Wonderful work, unfair prices. Happily, though, the unfair is in our favor this time.
The event features blown glass, ceramics, paintings, handmade paper, drawings, apparel, photography, sculptures, prints and jewelry. More than 125 students and alumni bring original work to this one-day sale. Cash, checks and credit/debit cards are accepted. Admission is charged at the door. Parking is free.
North Market's Apron Gala
59 Spruce Street
Prices not posted yet, but usually: $75 (worth every penny); $65 for registered Friends of the North Market
This is the single best fundraiser of the entire year. Everyone dresses in cocktail attire, draped with creative aprons. And, the vendors of North Market serve a three-course meal. A third of the eateries open on each hour - offering a heavenly array of treats. And included wine and beer flow freely the entire evening.
It is truly a can't miss. The chocolate-dipped strawberries alone.
Oh, yeah, there's a bunch of other stuff, too - like a silent auction with original art and private chefs. But, whatever, it's THE FOOD.

Pretty much noon - midnight
Not to put too fine a point on it: But, Comfest is why I live in Columbus. A three-day music and art and community festival that's a groundswell of good times.
You can lay around in the grass all day and just enjoy the weather and the music or pack in at night for Columbus at its most drunk and most social.
