There are a lot of things to do in town this weekend.
Good morning. Here's what you need to know for Friday, Sept. 18, 2015:
It’s officially Parents Weekend.
Scrambling for something to do to keep yours entertained? Or any parental figures in your life who might be dropping by?
If not, The Post has your back.
Ohio’s club hockey team has its home opener tonight. Ohio will be taking on John Carroll University. Tickets are $8, $6 if you’re a student.
Ohio football will host Southeastern Louisiana University Saturday at 2 p.m. The Post’s sports staffers think the Bobcats will win easily.
You can also zipline at The Ridges most of the day Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $25.
Alternatively, from 6-9 p.m., that $25 could get you 25 domestic beers at Red Brick. Or 25 well drinks. Or 13 beers and 12 well drinks. The choice is yours.
If none of these activities sound appealing, the Athena Cinema is screening a Nicolas Cage movie tonight at 7 p.m.
