The Charleston Battery kick off against the Minnesota Thunder tonight at Blackbaud Stadium and will hopefully be bringing in the first win of the season (so far they’ve only had ties). All are encouraged to come cheer them on especially, since it’s $5 ticket night, courtesy of Five Guys Burgers & Fries. In addition to the $5 goodness, tonight is also Go Green Night to recognize local green businesses and organizations, with a Green Vendor Village of 40 local vendors. All of the kiddos who attend will receive an official Charleston Battery autograph book. Gates open at 6:30 and draft beers are $2 until kick-off at 7:30, so go early and get rowdy. —Hadley Lyman
