Your Weekend To Do List: 5/3-5/5

With Cinco de Mayo falling on a weekend this year, you can bet the margaritas will be a-flowing at your favorite watering hole. Join us for our fourth annual Cantina Crawl Saturday for plenty of cerveza and swag at Bakersfield (6 p.m.), Nada (7 p.m.), El Coyle (8 p.m.), Pirate’s Cove (9 p.m.) and Tostado’s (10 p.m.) WARNING: Actually trying to drink at each location is probably unwise. Be safe and get yourself a designated driver! Find a full list of participating cantinas here. Photography duo The Hilton Brothers, Paul Solberg and Christopher Makos, are in town for the opening of their FotoFocus-sponsored exhibit at Miller Gallery Friday. The show features diptych photos of flowers, horses and the late, great Andy Warhol in drag. Meet the artists at Friday’s reception, 7-9 p.m. and look out for our interview with them in next week’s issue. They say April showers bring May flowers, so it makes perfect sense that this month’s Essex Studios Art Walk is themed “Bloom.” From 6-11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, more than 120 artists will show off their floral-inspired artwork of various mediums throughout the studios. Go here for full details. The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra has dubbed Friday Over-the-Rhine Night with its "Fanfare for Cincinnati" concert in Washington Park. The night kicks off with a bike ride starting at the park at 6 p.m., a comedy show by OTRimprov and plenty of on-site food trucks and vendors. The CSO concert runs 8-10 p.m., followed by more eats and a performance by Young Heirlooms until 11 p.m. Find a full event lineup and ticket info here. Comic books are making a comeback! With the popularization of superhero culture and hits like The Walking Dead, the old-school media is cool once again. Celebrate Free Comic Book Day Saturday at one of many local comic shops (search here) and swing by the Main Library downtown as it presents its first ComicCon Sunday. Local writer/musician Chris Charlton will be on hand at Covedale comic book shop, Rockin’ Rooster, Saturday and at the library’s panel discussion Sunday along with many other notable local comic writers, publishers and illustrators. Check out our interview with Charlton here.For more stuff to do this weekend, check out our To Do picks, full calendar and Rick Pender’s Stage Door for weekend theater offerings.

The gap between comic books when I was a kid and comic books today is like the difference between Bruce Wayne and Batman. My obsession dates back to the Big Three: DC, Marvel and Dell.
