There’s still 30 painstaking days before the best one of the year, Halloween. If you’re impatient, a bunch of places have already gotten in the spirit (or have gotten haunted by spirits). Boone Hall has their pumpkin patch during the day and Fright Night after dark, Legare Farms has a maze and pumpkin patch, and the aquarium has become Scary’um.
This weekend’s theater offerings include AWOL: A Soldier’s Journey, The Lion in Winter, The Marvelous Wonderettes, The Philadelphia Story, and Tintypes. For dance, you can choose from Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Company, Fred Astaire Fall Showcase Spectacular, and Amor Al Flamenco.
The Gibbes will present Faces, a concert inspired one of their new exhibits. Susan Lenz will host a lecture about her show, Personal Grounds, at the City Gallery at Waterfront Park. And since her name is Susan, you’re pretty much guaranteed that she’ll be insightful, witty, and thought-provoking.
Give your child some costume inspiration at Creative Spark’s Cinderella performance or at the Safety Expo, where they can meet firefighters, police officer, and other aspirational members of the community.
Do some good this weekend at Crawl for the Cure, A Night on the Red Carpet, the Palmetto Palace Gala, the PINK Pajama Kick-Off Party, Special Day for a Special Cause, To Broadway and Back: A Party for the Arts, and IOP Connector Run and Walk for the Child.
Take a picnic to Hyde Park’s polo match.
Widespread Panic performs at Patriots Point … nope, at the Ladson fairgrounds … nope at the North Charleston Coliseum. Yep. That’s where they’ll be.
My ultimate Boyz II Men pairing would be the R&B group with Mariah Carey, but I guess Patti Labelle is a close runner up. They close out MOJA.
We rounded-up weekend foodie events over here.
Catch some wrastling (deliberate mispelling there) when TNA iMPACT takes over Daniel Island.
