Ready to shake off the holiday hustle and a few days of coastal flooding? Us too. Here’s where to hang this weekend.


There are far fewer things as festive as Magnolia Plantation’s Lights of Magnolia. Grab the whole family and get out of the house — and read a little about the backstory of the Lights before heading out.

Speaking of lights, you can still check out the holiday fest of lights at James Island County Park.

Get down to Silent Santa Disco part one at Uptown Social at 10 p.m.


Part two of that Silent Santa Disco takes place at Charleston Beer Works at 10 p.m.

Take the kids to a screening of Curious George at The Terrace at 10 a.m.

You’ve all been waiting for it: The Creekside Comedy night that roasts Keith Big Daddy Dee. Fun starts at 9 p.m. (And word on the street, a.k.a. Dee’s Facebook page, is that Creekside Comedy nights will be a weekly occurrence in the new year).

It’s bottle release time at Revelry and sister spot, The Hold. Sip on Red 5 Standing By, a Flanders style red ale aged in a single French oak foeder. This beer has been, err, standing by, for a while and now it’s time to enjoy.

Get Ignorant Wrestling melds comedy with pro wrestling at Theatre 99 at 10 p.m. Need we say more?
