More rain last week made the Charleston Young Professionals’ meeting at the Gibbes Museum of Art a bit soggy on Thursday night. The event, held outside, was still filled with mingling twenty-somethings, despite the drizzle. When it started really coming down, some headed over to Saks for the Fall Fashion Preview show, where models showed the latest fall styles.

Sunday was the second day open for Boone Hall’s Pirate Corn Maze. This impressive six-acre maze was created in the shape of a pirate ship using Google Earth and a GPS system. With almost 4,000 feet of path, be sure to have a couple of hours to kill if you plan on tackling this attraction.

Sunday evening was the closing game of another season with the Charleston Battery soccer team at Blackbaud Stadium. Fans came out in full force to cheer on the Battery against the Rochester Rhinos. The game was tied 0-0, with both teams qualifying for the playoffs. The Battery will play Puerto Rico in a playoff series that starts Friday.
