Freeloaders: Multi-culti mundo-vibing 

The week's best freebies, Aug 27-Sept. 2

Monday: You made it back to work: congratulations! Ladies, go reward yourselves by sipping on some free bubbly at Badd Kitty's Ladies' Night and browse their spicy merchandise at an extra 10 percent off. If that’s a little too scandalous, get cultured at Dog & Horse Fine Art where you can view fine art featuring, um, dogs and horses.

Tuesday: If you’ve always wanted to know what goes on behind the scenes a lumber mill, then pine no more. The Lowcountry Branch of the US Green Building Council for South Carolina is hosting a free tour of the Southern Lumber and Millwork Corp. Churning out custom millwork since 1940, this event is sure to add to your knowledge of all things wood.

Wednesday: Starlight Cinemas will be hosting their last free, family movie this week. Showing this week is Dolphin Tale, which follows the burgeoning friendship between a lonely boy and an amputee dolphin. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll see what really happens when prosthetics give a dolphin another chance at life.  If that doesn’t get you chuckling, better head to The Big Gun Show where local stand-up comedian and host Dusty Slay will be crackin’ wise with other local jokesters.

Thursday: Let’s get classy. Nothing sounds more posh than sipping on some espresso and tap-tap-tapping to the sounds of jazz, world, and electronic music. Check out the latest sounds at MundoVibe’s Weekly Listening Event. Pinky up!

New York Times contributor, Robert Leleux will be signing copies of his book The Living End: A Memoir of Forgiving & Forgetting. Taken from his own family’s experience, Leleux gives insight into the love and peace that can arise from a journey through Alzheimer’s.

Friday: When you think of visiting a funeral home, you probably don’t get too excited. But how about a Pop-up Art Show by Gris Galerie? Held in the courtyard of the Old Gadsden Funeral home, the best of the Southeast’s graffiti and mural artists will throw down their creative improv to compose an original mural on a 100 ft cinderblock wall.

If you’re stuck with the kiddos, join LEGO DUPLO play leaders at the Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry for a day of inspiring and educational fun. There will be building, dancing, and all around constructive chaos.

Saturday: “Inner-outer body experiences” are the feature of Croatian artist Sinisa Kukec’s exhibition, From Void to Void. Using repurposed found objects like furniture and mirrors,  Kukec constructs neon, amorphous sculptures that tell the story of “hopeless romantics with misanthropic tendencies.” Come ponder what it all means at Redux Contemporary Art Center.

Sunday: First Sunday of the month means another round of the Maker’s Market. Featuring food trucks, local brews, live music, this event is for all ages. Shop for handmade house wares or jewelry, taste local culinary creations, toss around some bocce balls, or bring a quilt for some primetime people watching. Come check out what your favorite brewmasters, stationary geniuses, and other craftspeople are up to.
