It’s a typically slow summer weekend in Charleston. That’s good for me, because it means less work on the Weekend Round-Up, and it’s good for you because it means you have a good excuse to go to the beach or simply stay in your well AC-ed home, like me.

Has it already been a whole Shark Week? Local activities at the S.C. Aquarium wrap up this weekend.

Shaggin’ on the Cooper presents 17 South, and Reggae Nights has Selah Dubb.

Luckily, the Tennis Block Party will be over by 12 p.m. on Saturday, so it’ll only be about 93 degrees when you’re out there on Daniel Island, instead of 103. The glass is half full, people.

If you’d like to compete in the Bud Light Lime Bikini Bash, this is the last chance you’ll have before the finals.

The Charleston RiverDogs will make a home stretch against the Savannah Sand Gnats.

The Folly to Cali Ride for the Kids will raise money to fight childhood obesity.

The Towne Centre White House Black Market hosts the Sip n’ Shop Girls Night Out, with jewelry from Stella & Dot.

The Theatre 99 shows this weekend are Improv Smackdown and The Have Nots!

The Sound of Charleston is back! Yeah, we bet you’re excited. And Nappy Roots will perform at the Windjammer.

Yes, I still have “Tomorrow” stuck in my head. Thanks a lot Annie. If only Kicking a Dead Horse had a catchy song to compete with it, or maybe I should get acquainted with the South Pacific soundtrack.

The Park Circle Film Society is screening Taken In, which was filmed in South Carolina at South of the Border. Take up this rare opportunity to see a state-produced movie.

There’s a scatter of art openings this weekend, including Social Velocity at Redux (including lectures by Joseph Labate and Ryan Mandell), In Harmony at Robert Lange Studios, and Pastorals and Portraits at the M Gallery.

And the Cocktail Club’s beverage director Jasmine Beck will teach an Infusions Cocktail Class at the bar on Saturday. Day drinking is better when you’re learning something from it.
