Weekend Round-Up: Live every week like it’s Shark Week 

The best events in Charleston, July 29-31

Dah-nuh. Dah-nuh. Starting Friday, the S.C. Aquarium hosts Shark Week, which kicks off with Shark, Rattle and Roll.

Don’t be too bitter if you don’t get a ticket to Bitters and Twisted in the Salon d’Orleans, a Society 1858 party at the Gibbes. And it would be a travesty if you missed Travesty, hosted by Charleston After Dark.

Clay Rice will be doin’ what he does best — silhouettes — at Marigolds in Summerville.

The Bud Light Lime Bikini Bash has a few rounds left.

Any driver who’s been on Rutledge above the Crosstown has noticed the shell of a house that was destroyed by a fire. The Bogard Street Block Party will raise money for the victims.

The Charleston Battery take on the Rochester Rhinos. Hopefully someone will score, unlike at the game earlier this week.

I prefer to call disc golf “frolf,” like George Costanza does. Play some at Mixson’s competition on Saturday.

The Fight for Air Climb Charleston takes steps for those who cannot breathe on their own. There’s also the Rock and Walk, which supports families who have experienced an infant loss.

Meet Julia of Current/Elliot at the trunk show at Hampden.

Book nerds (and I use that term with the utmost respect) can enjoy two sales this weekend: one at the Lowcountry Senior Center and Johns Island Branch Library.

Reflections African Jewelry has a Benefit to New York Fashion Week at the Harbour Club.

I hope there’s free pizza at the Little Caesar’s Palace Comedy Night, or maybe a slot machine. I guess comedy is just as good, and there’s more of that at Theatre 99 with their Improv Jam and Improv Riot.

The Summer at St. John’s Concert Series continues with a performance by Brent Price and Todd Monsell.

Elite Dance International Studio and Apparel hosts its Summer Dance Gala.

The kids of Charleston Stage’s SummerStage Musical Theatre Camp have clearly had a very productive summer, as evidenced by their Willy Wonka Jr. performance. And the Flowertown Players’ has Annie, which features some kids in its class. I already have “Tomorrow, Tomorrow” stuck in my head.

Alas, Karin Olah, Charleston shall miss your artwork as you move to Colorado. Say goodbye to her at the “bon voyage” preview for Unwound and Bound. Helen Duckworth opens Dreams and Reflections, and the Contemporary Charleston exhibit will have a collector’s hour to close out the show.

If you’ve watched Friends or Everybody Loves Raymond or Seinfeld, then you know who Fred Stoller is, and he stars in Fred and Vinnie, playing in Park Circle this weekend.

If you’ve never been to Thee Southern Belle, this weekend is your perfect opportunity. They’re screening Ghost Trek, about the Paranormal Underworld Detective Society (PUDS). Plus Jonny Fairplay and Trishelle from the Real World will be there. Your Saturday night is planned.

Pick up a new pet at Adoption Fest or at Repticon. You just might not want to combine the two.

Get your arms ready for the Morris Island Kayak Tour or the Naturalist-Led Kayak Trip or the Folly River Kayak Trip. Wake Fest is another good watery event.

If you’re one of the poor souls in the world without your own grill, let Ted’s Dockside do it for you at their cookout.

Sol Fest will be good for your soul.

And on a serious, important note, pay tribute to Edwin Gardner on the anniversary of his death at RidEDWIN. It’s a family-friendly ride starting at Cannon Park.
