Friday

The Southern may have 99 Problems (exhibition currently on display), but a holiday party ain't one at this gathering from 8-10 p.m. Enjoy refreshments, peruse art, and be on the lookout for gift certificates hidden around the gallery.

Palmetto Brewing Co. hosts their weekly loading dock series at 6 p.m.

Saturday

Mynt hosts Eight Crazy Nights — a party that benefits the Charleston Jewish Federation. While this event isn't technically free ($5 or donation of non-perishable food), we think it's worth highlighting. Starts at 9 p.m.

Dave Grunstra plays jams at Rita's on Folly at 7 p.m.

Catch Randy Kemper at Trayce's Too at 9:30 p.m.

Because Saturday and Sunday are Christmas Eve and Christmas, a lot of regularly scheduled events are taking the weekend off. If your free Sat. or Sun. event is still going on, please email us at connelly@charlestoncitypaper.com so we can add you to Freeloaders. Happy holidays!
