Weekend Round-Up: Dads and Dudes 

The best events in Charleston June 15-17

This weekend is looking out to be pretty epic on the weather front, which will make hanging out with dad on Sunday much less sweaty.

Most dads like golf, right? They can play it at the Charleston Nine-Shane Albers Memorial Golf Tournament. (Since the fifth anniversary of the Sofa Super Store fire is coming up, plan to see a lot of special events coming up, like the golf tournament and the Kilts and Kegs fundraiser). Or honor your pops in a musical setting with Songs for Our Fathers.

Got the festival blues now that Spoleto is over? Satiate your craving with Carifest, whose parade and carnival take over Brittlebank Park on Saturday. Everyone's favorite R&B duo from 1997, K-Ci & Jo-Jo, are just part of the fun at the Fresh Music Festival. And the Siempre Mujer Music Festival brings Spanish-language stars to Daniel Island.

In a city as old as Charleston, it seems like it's always something's sesquicentennial, and it's the Battle of Secessionville's turn this weekend.

Jugglers of all shapes and sizes should bring their balls to the World Juggling Day Sunset Juggle. Watch out for flying bowling pins.

And the dude will abide at the Lowcountry Big Lebowski Celebration. As if you needed an excuse to drink White Russians.

Plan to eat at Muse on Friday night. They're donating 25 percent of sales to Direct MS.

The Bruisin Betties, the Lowcountry Highrollers B team, are having a fundraiser at Earshot Records, and Lucky's Southern Grill has a benefit for the Sea Islands Chamber of Commerce with music by Bubba Bryant.  

The Charleston Battery take on the Antigua Barracuda.

The NBA Finals have nothing on Shots with a Spin, an able-body wheelchair basketball tournment to benefit Charleston's Achieving Wheelchair Equality.

The store may be brand new, but that doesn't mean that lululemon athletica doesn't have the power to shut down part of King Street for a complimentary yoga session. All fitness levels are welcome.
 
The Lowcountry Artist Market returns once again to the Music Farm to satisfy all your vintage clothing and handmade craft needs.

Now that Piccolo Fringe is through, Theatre 99 is back in action with the Theatre 99 Improv Jam and Improv Riot.

We expect Great Scott to be pretty magical, since there will actually be magic there.

Inside/Outside, featuring work by Steve Johnson and Vanessa Gonzalez, opens.

Go Back to the Future at Movies at the Mt. Pleasant Pier. And plan to find yourself the closest sushi restaurant after you see Jiro Dreams of Sushi in Park Circle.

Stock up on beach reads at That Summer Book Sale.

You don't have to go to Disney World to have a meal with princes and princesses now that Creative Spark is hosting their Fairytale Breakfast. Helicopter pilots and flight crews will be at the Children's Museum of the Lowcountry, and the Charleston Museum has a pirate-themed afternoon planned for Saturday.

The Sam's Club National BBQ Tour makes a North Charleston stop, with food from Market Street Saloon. If you'd rather go local, Ted's will serve up Painted Hills beef burgers and Polish Kielbasa at their Backyard Barbecue Bash, or there's always the Slow Food Charleston potluck.
