Holy Black Friday Charleston. This weekend roundup is about to blow. your. mind. At least, we hope so. Here’s the deal — there’s a LOT of stuff going on around town. We’ve pared this list down to some of the events we think are truly special, but if you want the whole shebang, just cruise our online calendar.

(Black) Friday

There are a ton of pop-ups around town. We list some in our holiday market roundup. We’re also inclined to check out J. Stark’s Black Friday pop-up because it features local goods, duh, but also complimentary beer and wine. Heck yeah. Head to the Coming Street spot on Friday from 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m.-6 p.m., and Sunday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Keep the giving going at Holy Cow Yoga where you can donate dog and cat food (or money) to Pet Helpers and enjoy a free yoga class at 10 a.m.

If your pesky relatives are still in town (leave already, right?) take them to Wild Blue Ropes’ Thanksgiving weekend for specially priced ropes courses. The fun starts at 10 a.m. on Friday.

We wrote a whole article about The Southern’s small works show, Get Well Soon. Read it! Then check out amazing local art at the contemporary gallery from 6-9 p.m.
