CLEVELAND — Have you lived in Northeast Ohio forever, or maybe you're new to the area? Whatever your story, the region has tons to offer when it comes to experiences and adventures.

Normally, I keep you up to date on the latest pop culture stories everyday in Pop Break on What's New at 5 p.m. But now, with this new segment "3 Things Poppin' in Northeast Ohio," I'll be sharing with you my picks for trendy things to do on the weekends.

"With his hilarious but relatable tales of life's more perplexing moments, the challenges of parenthood, and his own experiences growing up in America with a Filipino mom, Jo Koy strikes a chord with audiences no matter where he goes," a synopsis for his comedy show reads.
