It’s Friday! Get ready to sing and dance … in the rain. Looks like it’s going to be another wet one here in Charleston, but no worries, we have your guide to whats going on this weekend — indoor events included. For those of you brave enough to venture into the weather: Please, stop flooding my Instagram with pictures of Charleston underwater. We all ran out of clever weather-related hashtags last month.
Friday: Itching to relive the ’90s? Stop watching sitcom reruns and catch Jerry Seinfeld in the flesh at the North Charleston Coliseum tonight. Tickets run from $47 to $77.
If you’re looking for some good eats for cheap, check out the Seafood Extravaganza at the North Charleston Masonic Lodge. Gorge yourselves on a range of seafood, including crab, fish, shrimp, and more, all while listening to DJ Akafool.
Don’t feel like spending any money? Join reForm Studio’s One Year Celebration and enjoy live music, free food, and drink, as well as door prizes. Or head over to James Island for Friday Night Lights where good, wholesome family fun is on the agenda. The event features sports, arts and crafts, and an outdoor movie. Cotton candy, popcorn, and snow cones will be available and free for kids; good luck getting them to sleep.
Saturday: Learning seems to be the theme of the day. Whether you’ve always dreamed of raising chickens in your own backyard, learning to mix the perfect summer cocktail, or becoming a puppet master, your day has come. High five to anyone who can find a way to combine all three.
Feeling outdoorsy? Venture to Folly for the annual pier fishing tournament, or head over to the Pour House for Follywood: Party on the Deck.
Not feeling Folly but still wanting to get outside? Head over to Folbolt factory in North Charleston for a free tour, followed by a few hours of kayaking adventures.
Don’t miss the afternoon’s performance of the Girls Rock Charleston camp-goers over at the Music Farm. Music not your thing? Want to sit back, relax, and laugh? Theatre 99’s Red Bastard promises to amuse and abuse. Plus tickets are just $10.
Sunday: It’s Bastille Day! Head over to Fish dressed as your favorite Frenchie, but don’t forget to make reservations first if you want a table. Otherwise hit up the bar to take in the revelries.
Today’s also Second Sunday on King Street, and free admission day at the Gibbes Museum of Art from 1-5 p.m.
It’s Sunday Fun Day! Here’s your last call: today is the final installment of the Pool Party and Beach Club series over at the Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina. Feeling fancy? Call ahead to book your VIP Cabana.
