Weekend Round-Up: So long SCOOP (and Eye Level Art) 

The best events in Charleston, Dec. 16-18

This weekend is going to be a sad one, since two of Charleston's contemporary art powerhouses — SCOOP and Eye Level Art — say goodbye to the Holy City with final art shows. Pay your respects.  

We've also got to give a shout out to City Paper contributing photographer Reese Moore, who's having her first solo show, Parisians I Did Not Quite Meet, at Alchemy Coffee.

Besides all the normal Holiday Happenings in town, some standouts are Christmas at the Village Tavern, Grand Illumination, the Santa Run Bar Crawl, and a Gingerbread House Workshop. And don't forget all the holiday concerts, the holiday plays, or CBT's The Nutcracker.

The Charleston Elves will be wrapping up gifts at a party at Bambu. There are no height requirements to attend.

Help raise money for Art's owner Kent Frits family medical expenses at the Have a Heart Benefit.

Stop by the Procrastinator's Pop-Up Shop, or Sip, Shop, and Be Merry.

The Tin Roof will present Open Mic Comedy on Sunday, while Theatre 99 has Blast Off?, Improv Smackdown, Improv Riot, and This is Chucktown!

Cookbook author Holly Herrick has book signings at Charleston Cooks! and Lily. Authors Mark Jones, Patrick Harwood, and Michael Coker have events as well, and artist Tate Nation and children's author Jonathan Miller will be appearing at the Mt. Pleasant and West Ashley Wonder Works.  

Eurasia celebrates its birthday with munchies, cocktails, and live music.

The New Music Collective will once again host Unsilent Night, their roving caroling sound installation. Contact them to participate, or just seek the group out on downtown streets on Saturday evening.

Welcome back Sadler Vaden and his new (to him) band Drivin' N Cryin' at the Pour House.

And finish up your weekend with brunch at the Macintosh, where they're celebrating Charleston Mix with a Bloody Mary bar. Bring in a canned good and you'll get one bloody for only a nickel.
