Be advised, Tribe fans, that there’s not a whole heck of a lot of baseball left. Though the Indians have been battling mightily through injuries and sub-par offensive production at key positions, the clogged Wild Card race means that a playoff berth is a real long shot. But this weekend, you’ll get a chance to see some winning baseball (hopefully). The Indians take on the lowly White Sox of Chicago in a series that they should snatch with ease. Tonight is Sugardale Dog Night. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m. at Progressive Field with fireworks right after the game. Tomorrow, the first 10,000 fans will receive a T-shirt emblazoned with a fan-designed block C. Sunday’s 1:05 contest will be followed by kids running the bases, which is always bargain-basement entertainment if you can’t afford tickets to 3-D movies anymore. Look for dominant showings by Tribe starting pitchers and at least one Zach Walters walk-off home run. Tickets start at $12. (Allard)

Tonight’s Mix event, “Pathways,” is all about who we are and how we got here. Because the Cleveland Museum of Art is collaborating with the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, you get two exhibitions for one admission price. CMA’s offering is Yoga: The Art of Transformation while CMNH’s exhibit is Traveling the Silk Road: Ancient Pathways to the Modern World. On the literal pathway between the two museums, there will be music and activities exploring cross-cultural themes. As always, there’ll be drinks and food available as you explore how Eastern and Western cultures have crossed and combined to make the unique world we live in today. Tickets are $10 and the whole shindig runs from 5 to 10 p.m. (Trenholme)

Sample all things savory today and tomorrow at Cleveland’s Garlic Festival. Now in its sixth year, the event is sponsored by the North Union Farmers’ Market and, true to its name, boasts a variety of garlic-flavored foods. Head out to Shaker Square to witness competitions between touted “garlic masters” and grill-offs for garlic-y dishes involving beef, chicken and pork. Taste flavorful food samples and relax in the live music area. Starting at noon, the fest sounds like a pungent blast; we’re thinking it may not be the best spot for a first date though. Tickets are $8 for one day and $12 for the whole weekend. (Cortni Dietz)

Singer-guitarist Angela Perley, who grew up in Hilliard, started writing songs when she was still in high school and initially put together an all-girl pop-punk band. Then, while attending college at Ohio University in Athens, she began to develop an alt-country bent. The Columbus-based alt-country act Angela Perley & the Howlin’ Moons came together in 2009. The band’s hard-rocking new single, “Hurricane,” the lead track from Hey Kid, sounds like a cross between Joan Jett and Patsy Cline. Good stuff. (Niesel)

Today, the Western Reserve Historical Society opens 1964: When Browns Town was Title Town, a new exhibit commemorating the 50th anniversary of the championship season of the Cleveland Browns. On Dec. 27, 1964, the Cleveland Browns beat the favored Baltimore Colts to win the NFL Championship; this exhibit features a wide range of related Browns memorabilia. Guest curators Kermit and Joyce Pike, who began their extensive collection with their season tickets and game-day memorabilia from 1964, have assembled Browns football cards; the exhibit will also include programs, pennants, autographed footballs, photographs, jerseys and other souvenirs. The exhibit opens today with a tailgate party from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is $10. (Niesel)

Three monumental paintings by iconic abstract artist Jennifer Bartlett make up the entire exhibit in Epic Systems: Three Monumental Paintings, which opens tonight at the Cleveland Museum of Art. What’s so special about these three paintings you ask? Well, between them, Song (2007), Rhapsody (1975-6) and Recitative (2010) manage to span the entirety of Bartlett’s career; yet surprisingly, they have never before been shown together in the same place and time. The paintings share a musical theme, putting them in direct dialogue; yet they are also in contrast, resulting in a very unique exhibition. Working with the ideas of fragmentation and the modernist grid, Bartlett pushes the boundaries, creating a truly interesting and worthwhile exhibit despite its small size. (Trenholme)

Emboss a passport with symbols as you travel from one city to the next. Experience a full-scale re-creation of a night market, complete with spices, luxury goods and precious raw materials. Walk through a 41-foot-long replica of the prow of an Arabian sailing ship, with a cutaway view of its cargo below deck. Traveling the Silk Road features immersive re-creations of ancient settings, life-size models, engaging videos and hands-on activities. Get in on the action at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. ($12 Adults; $10 Youth, Seniors)
