Happy Friday April 23, 2021 Everybody! Let's throw open the doors to the weekend and enjoy a little well-earned downtown Akron fun. Need some ideas? How about these? 1. Join DAP and Curated Storefront tonight on and around Cascade Plaza for the #BandAkron Light Up Reveal, from 6 - 11 pm, when artist Ian Brill syncs the 20,000 LEDs of his installation "Band" to live music created by Theron Brown Music & DJs Naeem Martinez & Shawn Rudiman. Get dinner from Eddies Famous Cheesesteaks and Grille, take a tour of Curated's newest exhibition, World of Wonders, enjoy a locally-crafted beverage, and check out this awesome experience in-person (Covid protocols in place) or watch the live-stream from home on Curated's social media pages. 2. If turning an entire building into performance art isn't your thing, head over to NOMZ for FREE Karaoke Night @NOMZ, from 7 - 10 pm. With tacos, drafts, cocktails and good times. And Covid-safe microphone condoms (yes, they are real). Dibs on Billy Joel's "Piano Man." 3. On Saturday, head over to the John S Knight Center for the Adventures in Stamping: Rubber Stamp and Scrapbook Event (10 am - 5 pm), or enjoy an afternoon of Art with a capital A at the Akron Art Museum and Summit Artspace, both are open from 11 am - 5 pm and are presenting no less than 10 exhibitions between them. No doubt you'll see something you'll love. 4. On Sunday, join Dirty River Bicycle Works' Yeti Squad, a chill, leisurely ride for all skill levels. Make it an adventure by stopping at Akronym Brewing (which is on the Summit Brew Path) after the ride for Sunday Brunch & Brews. BONUS: Gather your squad, the members of your dojo or crew and check out the #DEVOte Scavenger Hunt in downtown. Visit the 20 tire energy domes in downtown Akron and identify the Devo song title attached to the clue on each dome. BONUS POINTS if you submit a video singing the song! You could win one of five $25 gift cards to a downtown restaurant. More info and more stuff to do in #DowntownAkron is here, for your perusal: https://bit.ly/PictureYourselfonMain
