Baseball, Bacon & Blues

I love late-summer evenings.

And with the amount of autumn-focused posts I have planned, you’d think the theme of HJR was “weather.” I know, I know. It’s soooo cliche this time of year to hear about how “nice it’s been outside.” But the thing is, I’m infatuated with this time of year. Sure, the days are getting shorter, but the crisp air is definitely welcomeafter the summer we’ve had. I won’t put all my apples (get it? because they’re seasonal?) in the fall basket just yet, but I will admit that I’m super excited.

So, what else is there to be excited about?

Kick-Start: What to look forward to this week.

We don’t have a huge professional sports scene in Columbus, but we do have serious rivalries. Check out the baseball variety on Wednesday, Thursday & Friday when the Clips take on the T-Town Mud Hens. Penny pinching? Tickets start at just 12 bones.

Crafty? Obsessed with pinning DIY projects that you’ll probably never get around to? Check out Etsy Team Columbus’ annual craft party on Friday. It’s free!

Catch some fashion flicks at the Columbus Museum of Art this weekend, when they host the Kleibacker Film Fest. Friday’s film is Bill Cunningham New York (su-freaking-purb), Saturday’s film is The September Issue, and Sunday’s film is Secret World of Haute Couture.

Hungry? Thirsty? Feel like partying? The Columbus Food Truck Fest takes place at the Ohio Historical Center on Saturday and Sunday; BaconCamp Columbus is happening on Saturday; and Summer Beerfest will be raging on Saturday night. Cheers!

Fan of Dr. House? Hugh Laurie and the Copper Bottom Band take the stage at the LC on Sunday.
