It seems like it's going to be a fairly quiet weekend in Charleston, probably because everyone is recovering from mid-week Fourth of July partying.
Still feeling in a patriotic mood? Magnolia Plantation is offering free admission to doctors and nurses on Friday and active duty military personnel on Saturday, when they'll also have a day-long history program. And Red, White, and Cash will get ayone in the mood.
It is a big weekend for art, however. Joshua Flint's show Push Your Boat Out opens at Robert Lange, and Simon Kenevan has his work at Martin Gallery. Return to the Sea: Saltworks has its public dismantling, and the lecture series for the City Gallery's A Long Time Ago.... kicks off.
Happy birthday to Theatre 99, who are entering their last year before the terrible teens. They've also got Blast Off? and Improv Riot this weekend.
Don't forget Second Sunday on King Street.
The Charleston Battery have a game against the Charlotte Eagles, while TNA Impact Wrestlers take over the North Charleston Coliseum. And the Charleston Sprint Triathlon Series will keep local athletes on their toes.
Future Shorts, the biggest pop-up festival of its kind in the world, makes a stop in North Charleston.
New York chef April Bloomfield is signing books and preparing a feast with Sean Brock at Heirloom Book Co.
We're sure Three Dog Night has already heard everyone in the world's rendition of “Jeremiah was a bullfrog,” so please refrain.
It's Vinyl Saturday at Monster Music with the Royal Tinfoil (who also have a welcome home show at the Tin Roof) and Mark Bryan.
And if you think it's hot out, head to Charleston Museum for the Civil War Fashion Try-on and see what summer is like in a hoop skirt and wool uniform. We are lucky to live in the age we live in.
