Sometimes we feel bad for February — being the shortest month must be rough. And based on this weekend’s amount of stuff to do, we’re pretty sure it has a Napoleon complex. But we’ll take that complex and party it up. Thanks February for wanting to prove your manliness through event overload.

Friday It’s time for another First Friday on Broad Street. Sip some wine and check out the new art in the galleries.

Stroll over from Broad Street to  Queen Street to see Robert Lange Studios‘ and Corrigan Gallery‘s newest exhibitions.

Cheer on Team USA and celebrate the start of the Olympics at the Tin Roof.

Don your ’70s gear and party like it’s Studio 54 at the Gibbes Museum’s Studio 58.

Start your weekend the zen-ful way with a community social yoga at the Yoga House.

Jam out to some crunchy rock when the Whigs take the stage at the Pour House.

Saturday Fat Tuesday isn’t until March, but Charleston is getting a head start on Mardi Gras.

Stop by Blue Heron Acupuncture for some wellness tips — and if you’re brave enough you can even try acupuncture. Twenty Six Divine will cater the event in celebration of its fourth anniversary.

Put your spelling to the ultimate test by getting mildly intoxicated and then taking the stage to see if you really know when i goes before e.

Another Saturday and another three oyster fests. Irvin~House Vineyards has the Cork Shuckin’ Festival, Oysters on the Point is back , and the Barbeque Joint celebrates its sixth anniversary with some bivalves.

Atlanta’s Maestro performs improv at Theatre 99.

Bacon and bourbon, yeah we don’t need to say anything else. Head to the Memminger to get your fill of the porky goodness and sweet nectar of the gods.

Or if you prefer Filipino food, head to the Refueler‘s Dinner instead.

Sunday It’s a double whammy weekend with Second Sunday and free admission to the Gibbes.

Our crafting efforts usually end with laughter over how bad they turned out, so we’re glad Rock Paper Scissors finally combined intentional laughing with crafting at its Night of Comedy and Crafting.
