The arrival of winter was greatly exaggerated, with a hot Friday and relatively cool Saturday this weekend to do everything you still want to do outside. Still, we’ve got you covered with plenty of indoor and outdoor activities this weekend.

Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra with George Takei

In one of his final programs, CSO conductor Louis Langrée leads a program of Bernstein, Price, and Copeland works—including the score from the famous Marlon Brando film On the Waterfront—narrated by George Takei, of Star Trek fame.
Oct 13, 11 a.m. & Oct 14, 7:30 p.m., Music Hall, Over-the-Rhine

The SpongeBob Musical at the Children’s Theatre

The premiere of the SpongeBob Musical is finally upon us. As we wrote last month, Reds icon Joey Votto will lend his voice to the production as the French Narrator. If you’ve ever wanted to hear Plankton and his computer wife rap a song that T.I. wrote, this is your chance. Oh, and did we mention that local TV legend Bob Herzog is playing Plankton in this production?
Various dates, Taft Theatre, 317 E. Fifth St., downtown

Foreigner at Hard Rock Casino

The weather could be hot (blooded) or cold as ice this weekend, but either way, fans of Foreigner have an urgent opportunity for what will probably be one of their last chances to see one of rock’s most famous bands at Hard Rock Casino’s event center. Maybe you’ve seen them before, but we bet it’ll feel like the first time either way.
Oct 14, 8 p.m., 1000 Broadway St., Pendleton

Waynesville Annual Sauerkraut Festival

I mean, this one’s all in the name, right? Park at Wayne Local High School and prepare to be transported to streets full of Germany’s favorite food, shirts with Germany’s favorite food on them, art related to… you get the point.
Oct 14 & 15, Waynesville

Findlay Market Fall Food Fest

There’s hardly a better place in all of Cincinnati to buy food than Findlay Market. If you’ve never been, or have been but haven’t tried what every single vendor has to offer, Fall Food Fest is your best bet. Purchase a group of tickets, and one ticket gets you one sample of each vendor’s most famous or most fall-related dish. You can try everything from cupcakes to pierogis to croquetas at this event at a low cost.
Oct 15, 10 a.m.–4 p.m., Findlay Market, Over-the-Rhine

Cincinnati Bengals vs. Seattle Seahawks

Hard to believe with how scared we’ve been all year, but the Bengals could go into their bye week with a record of 3–3. “But now that Disco Joe can show off his moves and dance once again, there is every reason for optimism—for the first time in a while.
Oct 15, 1 p.m., Paycor Stadium, downtown
