We encourage all in Charleston to come out of that dungeon you call home and finally do something with your life, damn it. In that spirit, we have included some great events that will get you out and about and embracing the summer heat (but not too much) and Charleston at its peak time of year. We’ve got everything from pride events to concerts that benefit the Emanuel AME fund. So be sure to go out and not let the weekend pass you by.
