Its always good on the weekends, but if you can hit the "Gallery Hop" its a must. Great dinning, fun places to see, great people watching. Going to "Big Fun" is a must.

Lots of good restaurants here, for groups or couples. The clothes shopping is high-end stuff with price tags to match.

A wonderful vibrant area adjacent to downtown. These days you see more cranes than art galleries. Still a very social area, nice restaurants and bars. A definite stop when in Columbus.

There is not normally a charge for the monthly Gallery Hop event. Maybe you are looking at some type of fundraiser being held?
