CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Got the World Series blues? Don’t let your weekend slip into a pit of despair— instead, get out and remind yourself of all the amazing things that Cleveland has to offer.

Here are seven things to do this weekend instead of sulking about that Game 7 loss.

1. Experience the magic of “Finding Neverland” at Playhouse Square.

Hey, did you know what Cleveland has one of the best theater districts in the country? This weekend, head out and enjoy a production of Peter Pan-musical “Finding Neverland” at the Connor Palace. Other shows playing in the Cleveland area this weekend include “Avenue Q” at Cleveland State University, “Sweeney Todd” at the Geauga Lyric Theater and “Heathers: The Musical” at Case Western Reserve University.

2. Rock out at a Good Charlotte concert.

Rock band Good Charlotte will be stopping by The Agora this Saturday along with The Story So Far, Four Year Strong and Big Jesus. Other concerts this weekend include Band of Horses at the Masonic Auditorium, Jukebox Heroes at the Brothers Lounge and The Fray and American Authors at the House of Blues. There is also the free Jay Z Get Out the Vote concert on Friday night.

3. Finally finish that play you’ve been working on.

Is there a great story inside you just waiting to be written? Get jumpstarted on your magnum opus at the 2nd Annual Cleveland Playwright’s Festival this weekend. The free event features open writing workshops, staged readings of new plays and a live podcast performance. 

4. Attend a Thanksgiving-themed wine tasting.

Ohio’s wineries are incredibly underrated, so give yourself the chance to experience them this weekend at the Turkey Trot-A food and wine tasting event at Grand River Cellars. The event, which is only $5 per winery (and is $1 cheaper if you bring a canned food donation), has an afternoon of wine tasting complete with a full Thanksgiving feast.

5. See a live cooking demonstration at the Museum of Natural History.

History and food? Sounds good to us! Check out the Cleveland Museum of Natural History’s Our Global Kitchen exhibit this weekend to see how food and culture have intertwined over time. There are live cooking demonstrations every Saturday at 1 p.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m.

6. Pair beer and ice cream for the ultimate pick-me-up.

Ben & Jerry’s and New Belgium brewing Co. are coming together for the ultimate food tasting event at the Rock Mill Climbing Gym in Akron on Saturday. You can also talk to professional adventure skier Brody Leven about the effects of climate change and watch a special viewing of his ski film “Eclipse” at the event.

7. Suit up for Akron’s ComiCon.

Akron ComiCon at the John S. Knight Convention Center will feature guests like children’s book illustrator Dave Aikins, Hasbro designer Aaron Archer, Dick Tracy author Mike Curtis and more. There will also be a costume contest and a whole host of informative panel discussions, along with exhibitions.
