Weekend Round-Up: Amp Up for V-Day 

The best events in Charleston, Feb. 10-12

Valentine's Day is on a Tuesday this year, but you can get a head start on all the lovey-dovy misery with Face to Face Charleston Valentine's Party, the Perfectly Pink Valentine's Ball, and A Night of Romance and Love Songs, or have an early meal at Social, 17 North, or the Grill on the Edge.

It's your last chance to find a Valentine's Day gift, which you may be able to get at the Art and Designer Pop Up Shop or Handcrafted Hearts.

We don't know much about Runaway Bay's Bob Marley Birthday Celebration besides the fact that they will serve jerk chicken and, we're assuming, be playing a lot of Bob Marley.

The Gibbes' Society 1858 interprets their new Jill Hooper exhibition with Luce e Colore: La Bella Notte Italiana.

The Girls Rock Camp is collecting instruments for their campers. Or you can give them some money at this benefit.

I'm really happy that Sweeteeth is opening up a physical shop, and having a party to celebrate it, but I'm also mad that now there's even more temptation to buy that unbearably wonderful chocolate. Speaking of chocolate, the Chocolate Affair benefits Communities in Schools.

SEWE's a week away, but there's the kickoff event to hold you over in the meantime.


This is also the weekend of the Any Child Anywhere Benefit, Cookies for Kids Cancer, Dog in a Day, The Heart Breaker Ball, the Leukemia Ball, and a Zumbathon.

Get your V-Day gifts wrapped at a benefit for Journey House.

AWMI, Florence Crittenton, Pearlz, and the Sierra Club will host oyster roasts.

The Stingrays have games against the Chicago Express and the Florida Everblades.

See the next Pele or David Beckham or Mia Hamm โ€” i.e. the only three soccer players I can actually name โ€” at the Rotary Club of Mount Pleasant Soccer Classic.

Lewis Black has a show in North Charleston, while Theatre 99 has Bingo Improv and Improv Riot.

The SCO will perform Masterworks: Edward Hart's Under an Indigo Sky, Beethoven's Symphony No. 7, Kodaly's Dances of Galanta, while the gospel choir performs Pure Gospel: Authentic Reflections II.

Designated drivers are provided at the Bar Car Olympics: Winter Games. Instead of skiing, you'll be beer ponging.

Charleston Towne Landing has half-priced admission Saturday and Sunday.

What would have happened if Shakespeare was a choreographer instead of a playwright? Get an idea at CBT's A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Avenue Q ain't yo mama's puppet show. You can also see Adolphus Midtown: A Tribute to Oscar Brown, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, The Importance of Being Earnest, The Lieutenant of Inishmore, or Lowcountry Delights.

There's going to be some powerful portraits at Jonathan Stout's Derby Love. Meanwhile, Gallery Row hosts Champagne and Chocolates.

There are film screenings of Prince Among Slaves, Soldiers of Berga, and Young Goethe in Love.

Dine at Atlanticville, J Paul'z, La Tela Pizzeria, or Mondo's, order the special โ€œspay-ghettiโ€ items, and you'll be raising money for Pet Helpers all weekend.

The Camellia Walks at Middleton Place are well on their way, and the Lunz-Sierra Club will have a hike. Pay regular admission at the Charleston Museum on Saturday and you can participate in the crafts and activities of Gullah Galore.

Butcher & Bee will serve German food with Carolina Doener at a pop-up dinner.

Avondale Restaurant Week finishes up.

The Lowcountry Blues Festival begins, plus there are Avett Brothers, Hip Hop Royalty Tour, and Fishbone shows.

And this month's Second Sunday on King Street is sports themed, though we don't suggest playing a game of tackle football on the pavement in front of the Apple store.
