Freeloaders: Kicking off to springtime 

Free events March 14–20

March's top day is coming up. Get ready for green everywhere, a painful pinch or two, and great bar specials and events. To prepare for the holiday, and recover after, we've got a variety of free events to keep you feeling lucky.

MONDAY If you’ve got a killer spike with a Wii remote, Kickin’ Chicken’s Wii Tennis Challenge is where you want to be. For the rest of March, the competition will be held at different locations. Today, head to James Island and smack, spin, and bounce your virtual green ball to prizes and giveaways. You might want to practice a bit: the four finalists will fight for the top slot at the Family Circle Cup Tennis Tournament on April 6.

TUESDAY Directed by G. Roberts Kolb, the Hamilton College Choir will present sacred and secular choral works at St. John’s Lutheran Church. Izzy & The Kesstronics will entertain at the Tattooed Moose while the Steam Bros. will perform at the Recovery Room.

WEDNESDAY Check out Menachem Daum’s From Behind the Lens: Menachem Daum’s Life as a Filmmaker today and Thursday. Daum will answer questions and discuss his current projects in Poland and Arab villages.

THURSDAY It’s none other than lucky St. Patty’s Day. Looking for a fun time? Check out our St. Patty’s Day round up for some free events you don’t want to miss.

FRIDAY Daniel Rasmussen will speak about the forgotten story of the New Orleans slave revolt and sign his book, American Uprising: The Untold Story of America’s Largest Slave Revolt. If you’ve ever thought about gearing up and riding a bull, check out the Red Bull Illume photo exhibit in Marion Square. While I doubt there will be red bull energy drinks available, the exhibit might change your perspective on bull riding a bit. John Pundt and Trever Webster present Creatures of Habit, an exhibit exploring the juxtaposition of peace and order to passion and disobedience. Amy Mackie, director of the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans and guest juror for the Young Contemporaries 2011, will speak about the relationship between painting, performance, and dance at Painted Bodies, Moving Canvases.
