Top five things to do this weekend

Ashley Bethard • May 13, 2011 at 12:59 PM

There's plenty to do this weekend, ranging from music and art to gardening and shopping. Enjoy a great benefit for Japan hosted by locally-based, nationally-signed band The Undeserving, or make a stop in Port Clinton to see party band The Earthquakers. If getting your hands dirty is more your style, check out a free gardening class at Mulberry Creek Herb Farm. Can't get enough art? Check out the all-day celebration with gallery artists, live music, fine local wines and more at the Jodie McCallum Gallery.
