This is the weekend for walkers. Besides the models who will walk the runway at the conclusion of Charleston Fashion Week, there’s plenty of ways to work your legs around town. The Walk for Water raises money for Water Missions International. Race Judicata is a 5k sponsored by the Charleston School of Law, and there’s also the Daniel Island 5K Run and Walk. The most interesting of them all: the Charleston Hat Walk, a part of CFW benefitting MUSC Children’s Hospital. Finally, a form of excercise that lets you accessorize.
Get your art fix on Friday night. A couple of local artists will have their first local shows, including Kenton James’ She Loves You at Scoop Studios, and Matthew Foreman’s Stormin’ Foreman at Spark Studios and Gallery. Though exclusively featuring out-of-town artists, We Pictured You Reading This also opens at Redux.
We’ll finally get to unmask the mystery man at the premiere of Zorro. Also opening: College of Charleston’s Unbound, Unearthed, another dance performance, and Neil Simon’s play The Last of the Red Hot Lovers, presented by South of Broadway. Finally, the Greater Park Circle Film Society is showing Rocket Science at the Olde North Charleston Picture House. And we’re sure classic rock buffs are stoked for the Moody Blues on Saturday.
Fido feeling neglected lately? Take him to the Dog Food Tasting Party at Dolittle’s in West Ashley. They’re launching a new dog food by Dr. Janice Elenbaas, founder of Lucky Dog Cuisine. From what we’ve heard, it’s probably better than what most of us eat on a daily basis.
Make it out to March Badness and watch the Lowcountry Highrollers (hopefully) defeat the Neuse River Valley Roller Girls (then party with the ladies and Dangermuffin over at the Music Farm). There’s also the Storm, one of the South’s largest MMA events, and the final game of the Carolina Challenge Cup. All three matches happen on Saturday.
