There’s a long weekend coming up, which has the potential to ruin your budget. Keep your funds in check this week to call it even.

Monday It’s time for another bike-in movie at Tin Roof. They’ll be playing Goonies — otherwise known as the best end of summer movie ever.

Did Miley Cyrus’ questionable dance moves from the VMAs inspire you to become a better dancer? If so, hit up Dancefx‘s open house to test out some of their fall schedule. The deal is going on through Thursday.

Tuesday The Tin Roof has a double header of trivia. Don’t feel like leaving downtown? Don’t worry, Cutty‘s has the peninsula covered.

Home Team BBQ is hosting Bobby Hartin’s tailgate show. Wear your fave college football gear.

Check out the goods at the Mt. Pleasant Farmers Market.

Wednesday Jam out to some Grateful Dead covers on the deck at the Pour House as a nice hump day treat. Nick Collins has got some free music at the Shelter.

Thursday Football is back! Head to either of the Home Team locations to check out the USC vs. UNC game.

We may get sick of hearing about the Civil War, but when was the last time you actually learned something new about it? Head to the book talk at the Karpeles Manuscript Museum for a discussion from Dr. Joseph Kelly.

Friday Stop by the discussion about Charleston’s dueling personas with the panel talk about Charleston’s history of slavery as well as their strong religious roots at Charleston: Holy City and/or Slavery Central?

While not exactly free, it’s pretty close. Pay-what-you-can at the Blast Off? improv show at Theatre 99.

Saturday Wiener dog racing? Yes please. The event is free for spectators but donations are encouraged.

Browse the goods at the Surf and Art Sale.

More football? UGA takes on Clemson in the season opener, and you can watch it for free at Home Team.

Sunday Stay away from ketchup, mustard, cranberry juice, basically everything at Mad River’s All White Party to celebrate Labor Day.
