Sure, there may be that big food festival going on downtown, but we've found some other non-eating events — OK and some foodie ones too — to help pass the weekend in the best way possible.
Friday Try to snag some last minute tickets to Wine + Food Festival events this weekend.
Wine down and stroll the Charleston streets in the name of art at the French Quarter Art Walk.
Laugh your way into the weekend with Theatre 99's Improv Smackdown.
Or if you want a different kind of ab workout, head to the Community Yoga Social. They'll have beer there afterward to reward your hard work.
Saturday It's time for another round of Ladies Arm Wrestling at the Tin Roof. Test your strength as you raise money for a transgendered youth.
Get your comic education at Captain's Comic Expo, wehre you'll learn there's more to comic books than Batman and Spiderman.
We're not going to lie, we're fascinated by LARPers. And thankfully some people in Hollywood are too. Park Circle Film Society is screening Knights of Badassdom, which has a trio of LARPers open a portal to their make believe land.
Do your good deed for the weekend and sign-up to spin for charity at Pedal 4 Pattison's.
Barbecue – good. Comedy — good. Barbecue and comedy together — better. Stop by the Barbeque Joint's night mixing the two.
Sunday Spend the day on Shem Creek at Vickery's annual oyster roast.
Keep the party going and celebrate Tattooed Moose's fourth year anniversary.
You could always make it kid friendly and head to Hampton Park for a Teddy Bear Picnic.
And we always think live music is a good way to end the weekend. Mylo Ranger stops by the Sparrow and brings his folky Americana to the stage.
