Weekend Round-Up: Bagpipers 

The best events in Charleston, March 9-11

Anyone who went to last night's unicorn-themed Best of Charleston party will surely be using this entire weekend, from Friday night to Sunday night, to recover from all the shenanigans. But if you didn't get an invite, keep yourself occupied with these events.

Or maybe we'll, hopefully, recover in time for Second Sunday on King.

Sunday is a good day for kids. They can hang out at the annual KidsFair during the day, then head to 17 North Roadside Kitchen for its Kid's Night Jump Off Party.

You know what everyone should absolutely, positively do this weekend? Go listen to the bagpipers at the Sandy Jones Invitational Highlands Scottish Bagpipe Competition. Because how often can you go listen to a bunch of bagpipers?

Find out all about that bizarre building on the Navy Yard at the Preservation Pedal and Power House Tour.

ArtFest returns to Mt. Pleasant, the Southern Drag Racing Association has a car show, and the Charleston Black Expo goes down at the convention center.

Participants in the Hunt for Hope will scavenge around Hampton Park. We have some suggestions for things that need to be found: An angry duck; a practicing step crew; a gazebo wedding. Or get involved at the Pet Pantry Food Drive.

Team of three will compete in the Hoops for Hope tournament, and the South Carolina Stingrays have games.

They're going to be shucking oysters on Shem Creek.

The Lowcountry Highrollers will get a head start on St. Patrick's Day with their Four Leaf Clobber bout. I wonder if there will be any pinching.

You don't actually need a mullet to run in the Mullet Haul Trail Run, but they are strongly encouraged. If you care about your hair, try the Palmetto Pump and USA Climbing Competition instead.

Theatre 99 has Blast Off?, the Theatre 99 Improv Jam, and Improv Riot.

Opera Charleston's first-ever performance, Carmen, starring Denyce Graves, will premiere the new performing arts company.  

Admit it: You really want to see what this Vibrator Play is all about. Inga Binga is kind of controversial too, but stodgier theater goers might enjoy The Trip to Bountiful or Wait Until Dark.

Cuba Now, featuring photography from Ron Rocz and Nancy Santos, opens at Rick Rhodes Photography Studio. Or for a taste of France, see Le Havre.

Tim Owens will sign books at Blue Bike, and the Love Is Two People Talking Book Release Celebration benefits the Charleston County Disabilities Board.

The Charleston Parks Conservancy and Nature Adventure Outfitters will take kayakers out onto the Ashley River.

And Americans are a nostalgic people, so go ahead and Experience Hendrix while the rest of us nurse our hangovers.
