The scarves and boots are coming out and so are we. We mean outside for all the exciting events going on around town this weekend.

Friday ATOMACON will be running all weekend because there’s no way you can cram all the science fiction, anime, and media arts into one day. 

The Michael Mitchell Gallery will be serving hors d’oeuvres and cocktails from Bay Street Beirgarten with entertainment to benefit Crisis Ministries.

If you’re missing Halloween already, see PURE Theatre’s take on The Birds for a dose of creepy. 

Happy hour and $2 tacos are causes we can always get behind.

We haven’t even started on our Christmas list, but the Holiday Festival of Lights has their Grand Opening tonight. 

Saturday Before you mistake this for a rodeo party, check out the website for YALLFest to see all the events happening that celebrate young adult literature. 

If you and your date are the adrenaline seeking type, you can find a 30-foot climbing wall, mechanical bull, a zip line, and more at Park Day

Did you want YALLFest to be a rodeo? Well, we can’t make that happen, but the Lowcountry Hoedown is the next best thing.

The celebrity softball game is back. See celebs like Bill Murray and Elise Testone throw around the softball while raising money for Louie’s Kids, which helps to fight childhood obesity.

The Charleston Improvables take on improv Who’s Line Is It Anyway? style. 

Self-promotion is cool. Head to the City Paper Music Awards at the Pour House for live music, duh. Oh and booze and oysters too. 

Sunday It’s Second Sunday again. Foodies can rejoice since several authors of culinary themed books will be at the Preservation Society Bookstore for book signings and to talk about food with you. 

Local jazz talents will come together to perform an unrehearsed jam session. If that doesn’t get you pumped for Monday, we don’t know what will.

This is your last day to get to the fair. You don’t know how long it will be until your next chance to Instagram a photo of yourself on a Ferris wheel. 

Grab your fanciest hat and binoculars for the 20th running of the Charleston Cup.

Two Words: Cupcake Camp. All you have to do is show up.
