Cleveland has an astoundingly geeky weekend ahead with PUBG on free play all weekend long on the Xbox One, Magic the Gathering releasing Dominaria in local game stores, a West Side Zombie walk, and the Great Muppet Caper showing at the Cedar Lee, but our Celestial Pick has got to be a Friday-night viewing of the remastered Nosferatu followed by the Super Hero Bar crawl, in costume, starting at the Great Lakes Brewing Company at noon on Saturday. Ahhh… Vampires and Cosplay…
First up, Nosferatu.
Friday, April 20 at 7 pm
