Freeloaders: Fashionably free 

The week's best freebies, March 19-25

Charleston Fashion Week is going to cost you. There's tickets, of course, and then there's your outfit. If you already blew your budget, have fun at these free events.

MONDAY. The Economist blogger Will Wilkinson is giving a talk titled “Economic Liberty, Inequality, and Democracy.”

TUESDAY. See Corndog Mountain perform at the Tattooed Moose while eating a mountain of corndogs off the restaurant’s menu. You can’t actually order a mountain, but if you request enough you can form one yourself.

WEDNESDAY. Consider participating in the Charleston City Paper’s blood drive. We bet you can get some free food out of it.

THURSDAY. You better check out the FIRST ® Robotics Competition Palmetto Regional. We need to start learning about our robot enemies before they try to take over the world. Tivoli Studio artists Kathryn Barton and Lara Neece present the fashion-inspired Water on Wood, while Xiao Xin Lu hosts a reception for her exhibit at the Flagship. See year one of photographer Leigh Webber’s son’s life in the book First 52 Weeks.

FRIDAY. Spring Break may be long gone, but College of Charleston students will find some on-campus fun at Spring Fest. For more style-inspired art, see Olan Quattro’s Fashion Issue: Works in Collage at the Atelier Gallery, and there’s Holzvega, which pairs Hirona Matsuda and Lisa Shimko, at Michael Mithell. The dapper K. Cooper Ray, who’s a judge at Charleston Fashion Week, will sign copies of his book Bill of Rites at Blue Bike.

SATURDAY. The Folly Beach Sea and Sand Festival lasts through the weekend, with live music, an island-wide scavenger hunt, and more. Meanwhile, on the peninsula, the American College of the Building Arts hosts their annual Masters of the Building Arts Festival, and in Mt. Pleasant there’s the Village Fair. Vinyl geeks have been waiting for the third Charleston Record Expo since the last one. A special traveling Amtrak train exhibit choo-choos into town for two days, or you can drive through the forest at the Francis Marion Wildflower Auto Tour. And Mrs. Fisher Cat of Calico Critters will be at Wonder Works.

SUNDAY. The Plantation Singers will show their gratitude with a concert. The Green Film Series presents Forks Over Knives, while the Graham Law Firm hosts a free screening, panel discussion, and live music during Hot Coffee.
