There are plenty of events taking place May 5-8 in Northeast Ohio, starting with a way to celebrate Friday's holiday:

🍹 Te Amo Tequila

Details: There are plenty of fun events for Cinco de Mayo weekend. For tequila connoisseurs, there's "Te Amo Tequila" at Red Space.

  • The event starts at 7pm and features more than 30 premium tequilas with tacos from Barrio. Tickets start at $65.

💭 Our thought bubble: See it, if you like tequila, live music and good vibes.

ğŸŽ›ï¸ Ministry

Details: The pioneering industry metal band performs at 7pm Friday at the Agora. Tickets start at $39.50.

💭 Our thought bubble: See it. Ministry puts on a jaw-dropping live show, which should feature new music with the band's new album due in August.

ğŸŽ¬ "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3"

Details: The third and (probably) final installment of the "Guardians of the Galaxy" franchise kick-starts summer movie season.

💭 Our thought bubble: Skip it. The characters are still lovable, but the plot is a bit of a mess with jokes that often fall flat.

🛍️ Cleveland Bazaar

Details: Cleveland's longest-running indie craft show kicks off its twice-monthly summer appearances 10am-4pm Saturday at Market Square.

💭 Our thought bubble: See it. Supporting local artists and crafters on what looks like a beautiful spring day? Sign us up.

👯 Ingenuity Bal: Biotique

Details: The "not-quite gala" from Ingenuity is a biologically themed costume party and fundraiser Saturday night featuring performers and exhibits from Cleveland's art and tech scenes.

💭 Our thought bubble: Skip it. Wait for the actual IngenuityFest in September (or Cleveland Public Theatre's Pandemonium, if immersive galas are your thing).
