It’s a slow summer weekend for Charleston. Why don’t you go see Inception or something? Everybody’s doing it.

On Friday night, W.O.K. will host BLEND, a digital photography show and fundraiser for the Roper Cancer Research Center.

Gato Heroi will debut their new surfboard line at Billy Reid on Saturday. Cowabunga dude.

Theatre 99 has Improv Smackdown and Improv Riot. It sounds like a dangerously hilarious weekend.

The Flowertown Players will open their season with Don’t Try to Wake Him, Hand me the Shovel.

I believe the children are our future, and they’re proving themselves at the 2010 Redux Summer Art Institute Exhibition, which opens Friday.

Phone home and tell them to come see E.T. with you at the Outdoors Movies at the Mt. Pleasant Pier. Or watch the test screening of Saving Manhattan at the Olde North Charleston Picture House.

Fairy tales can come true this weekend, whether at the performance of Into the Woods or at Creative Spark’s Gingerbread Weekend.

KC & The Sunshine Band will perform with The Village People as part off Boone Hall Plantation’s summer concert series. That’s the way (uh huh, uh huh) I like it.
