The boys are back in town. And the girls. After all, college classes start next week. So some of the following events may be a little crowded.

If you can’t decide what to do this weekend, stop by Monthly Variations. It has food. It has music. It has comedy and spoken word. It has everything someone with ADHD could ask for.

If you’re a woman, stop by Pearl this weekend for their rack sale. If you’re a man (or a hockey-lovin’ woman), the Stingrays are having a Summer Garage Sale on memoribilia. And if you’re either gender and love surfing, Pet the Kitty on Folly Beach (with Gato Heroi surfboards) is for you.

Watermelons not your favorite fruit? Think they’re so snooty with their seeds and their rinds? Watch Gallagher enact revenge at his performances at Club H2O. Or if you’re not into getting your clothes stained, there’s Comedy Combat and Improv Riot at Theatre 99.

It’s about time some local comedians get made fun of. Watch the tables get turned on Jason Groce and Nick and Lesley of the Tin Roof at the Little Caesar’s Palace first anniversary roast.

Theater season has begun. It’s opening weekend for August: Osage County and Simply Divided, it’s the last nights of Ginger: A Hansel and Gretel Tale. And the Footlight Players are having an art auction to benefit their 79th season.

Help send Cold Soldiers to film festivals at its fundraising screening. Or catch The Cove and learn about dolphin slaughter. Yes, it’s not very cheerful, but it’s an important thing to learn about. Guest speakers will talk after the screening.

Nadine Vazquez signs copies of Single and Living It on Saturday.

The businesses of Shoppes at Seaside Farm host Feel Good for Foster on Sunday.

Lowcountry Food Bank will host a happy hour at the newest King Street Grille (at Citadel Mall.

Catch a big ‘un at the Mt. Pleasant Pier fishing tournament.

For live music this weekend, there’s Reggae Nights, Lee Brice, and the Archetypes reunion.

But really, all you college kids should just spend the entire weekend drinking. Because next weekend, you’ll have homework.
