The Weekend Lookout: Flea market, Apple Pie mead, BBQ

Mitch Hooper



Ah, the weekend. The only thing getting us through the work week. This time around in the city we’ll see Two Dollar Radio Headquarter celebrating its second birthday on Saturday and the Columbus Flea on Sunday. And if you’re looking to laugh at some “athletes,” the 3-on-3 basketball tourney at Land-Grant on Sunday should provide you with many opportunities.


Two Dollar Radio HQ 2nd Birthday Party @ Two Dollar Radio Headquarters

Happy two years, Two Dollar Radio HQ! This Saturday it will be hosting a celebration where visitors can meet up with authors and writers as well as enjoy drinks and specials on books.

Apple Pie Takeover @ Brothers Drake Meadery

You like apples? How ’bout them Brothers Drake apples?! The meadery is bringing back its first ever mead they created with a day full of apple mead flights, bobbing for apples, and even apple pie.

Endless Summer—An October BBQ Extravaganza @ Rehab Tavern

Summer never ends at Rehab Tavern. Stop out at the Franklinton bar to feast on smoked meats and sip back BBQ themed cocktails. This is the final installment of the outdoor event so soak up the sun while you still can!



Fall Flea 2019 @ Seventh Son Brewing

Local crafters, artists, and designers will be setting up shop at Seventh Son from 11am- 5pm. Just a friendly reminder that while Seventh Son is typically dog-friendly, there are no pups allowed at the flea market.

Mystery Science Theatre 3000: The Great Cheesy Movie Circus Tour @ Jo Ann Davidson Theater

The movie critiquing peanut gallery is making a stop in Columbus! MST3K is bringing all of the lovable characters like Tom Servo and Gypsie to the Jo Ann Davidson Theater where they will roast and rip a B-rated film.

Sports & Jorts: 3-on-3 Charity Basketball @ Land-Grant Brewing Company

It’s a collision of local musicians and organizations and sports. Who has the best jump shot for charity? This event is hosted by We Amply Voices (formerly known as The Dick & Jane Project) and proceeds will go towards benefiting the newly named program.

Endless Summer: Update on Woodlands Backyard volleyball dome

614now Staff



About two years ago, year-around sand volleyball at Woodlands Backyard was but a conversation. Today, we're seeing a little less talk and a lot more action.

The rec bar has announced that they are in the midst of construction an all-seasons dome where volleyballers can bump, set, and spike in subzero temperatures. No matter if we're dealt another Polar Vortex this winter, the Woodlands Backyard dome will be kept at a balmy 72 degrees.

The dome will consist of six courts. Play is expected to begin in November, though the grand opening date has yet to be announced. The second session of indoor sand volleyball is scheduled for January 6.

League registration begins Friday, October 18.

We know this development has been a long time coming, so for those skeptics, Woodlands promises that if the dome falls though, "we will refund you and then go go crawl under a rock and never come out."
