We’ve got a good feeling about May. The month is already pretty awesome. It’s finally warm enough for the beach. The tourists haven’t taken over the city yet. And there’s something fun to do every weekend. Lucky for us, this weekend there’s more than one fun thing to do. In fact, there’s enough for a roundup.
Friday Kick off your weekend with some culture at the French Quarter Art Walk.
The rain looks like it’s going to miss us this time. Celebrate with live music from Long Miles and South Street at Party at the Point.
All you need to know is that the answer is always “yes” when someone asks if you want to build a snowman. See for yourself at Movies in Marion Square’s showing of Frozen.
Time travel with Thereshold Rep’s production of 1963, which opens this weekend.
Head to the Tin Roof for some indie pop-rock from The Specs and Mechanical River.
Theatre 99 hosts Improv Smackdown, which pits comedians against each other in a game show formatted show that uses audience suggestions.
If Snoop Dogg was from the Lowcountry, he would have said “Sippin’ on pints of brews, load back” and hung out at Palmetto Loading Dock Series instead of rapping about gin and juice.
Saturday Start your morning with a spin and some juice at Charleston Ride’s The Green Mile.
Brittlebank Park will be taken over by dragons on Saturday morning — just of the boating variety.
The Kentucky Derby is this weekend. We always place our bets on the horse with the best name, which could be why we never win. The Junior League of Charleston hosts its annual Night of the Races at Johnson Hagood Stadium. The Cocktail Club is opening up early for the race. And The Alley is throwing down with a free party. You can even act like your at the races with their horse riding arcade game.
We’re also celebrating Cinco de Mayo. Ole. Mex 1 has their second annual block party. Fuel is throwing a fiesta. The Ninth Annual Charleston Cinco de Mayo Festival takes over the Bus Shed with tequila tastings and Latin music. Or just check out our roundup here to see who else is getting in on the Mexican holiday.
