My top picks are, as always, the local events. Date night: If you love plays or have never been to one, come out to the old high school this weekend for the production of “Dearly Departed;” another play, “Mary Poppins will be shown in Burkesville on Saturday. A clean standup comedy show in Glasgow on Friday also sounds fun. For the guys: the Jonathan Witty Memorial Weightlifting Meet here in Tville on Friday; the bike show in Lebanon, Tenn., or the March Mania in Bowling Green. For the kids: take them to the pancake breakfast in Glasgow and then head over to the domino event at the library in Glasgow going on all weekend. So many fun things to do, make plans now.
