Say so long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye to July. Crazy, huh? But let’s give the month the send off it deserves and live it up this weekend.
Friday Start the weekend with some zen at Fourth Fridays at the Yoga House. Then, get more of an ab workout with laughs at the Lowcountry Comedy Tour at Charleston Music Hall.
Theater season is just around the corner. Practice your etiquette by stopping by Annapurna, Twelfth Night, or The Screwtape Letters. They’re playing on Saturday and Sunday too (with the exception of The Screwtape Letters), so you could double up your play time.
The Moonlight Mixer is back this weekend at Folly Beach for an oldies-filled evening.
Get your cover music fill with Who’s Bad, a Michael Jackson cover band, or Same As It Ever Was, a Talking Heads cover band who’s playing Ween covers tonight as well. They’re both doing shows on Saturday, so you don’t even have to decide between the two.
Saturday Hit the bike early this weekend and head to Cannon Park to participate in the fourth annual RIDEdwin.
You could always grab some cheap books at the Johns Island library book sale. There’s also a ladybug release at Middleton Place. Each family will get a jar to release onto the grounds, but be careful those love bugs can bite.
The Sparrow in Park Circle is having the first annual comic book show where you can meet local artists and pick up a different genre of books. You could also stop by T-Bonz to see the cornhole tournament and nab some of their drink specials.
The USS Yorktown will host a reunion for the Cu Chi survivors at 4 p.m.
It’s Christmas in July at the RiverDogs game. If it’s not a strike, does that make it a snowball?
Feeling charitable? The Great Cancer Benefit is taking place at the Music Farm, or you could wear your sunglasses at night as you bar crawl around Summerville for cystic fibrosis.
You could always take a step back to the ’90s and the ’00s with the Last Summer on Earth tour. Barenaked Ladies, Guster, and Ben Folds Five will play Family Circle Cup.
Sunday Bowl a strike for charity at the Alley — or just eat some brunch.
Did you ever want to be a dancer? Now’s your chance. You can audition to join the Buen Ache Afro-Latino Dance Company.
We don’t think spending the last hours of sunlight kayaking Folly on a sunset tour would be too bad of an end to the weekend.
