Weekend Round-Up: So long Spoleto 

The best events in Charleston, June 10-12

That “whoosh” you hear is the entire City Paper staff breathing a sigh of relief. Spoleto wraps up this weekend, and while we’ve had fun and are looking forward to both the Piccolo and Spoleto finales, it’s been an exhausting whirlwind for all of us. If you can’t make it to one of those events, go out with a bang early at Revelry Tremé, the official Trombone Shorty after-party. It’s moved from the old Millenium Music building to the Gaillard exhibition hall.

Fort Moultrie’s going to be hopping on Saturday. In the morning, there’s a Guided Revolutionary Walking Tour, and then in the afternoon Civil War correspondent Frank Vizetelly (a.k.a. actor Howard Burnham) will give a presentation.

Juneteenth commemorates the announcement of the abolition of slavery in Texas. Celebrate locally at the festival at Jenkins on the Ashley.

Break out the needles for Worldwide Knit in Public Day. I only know how to knit scarves, which is exactly what I need right in the middle of summer.

It’s a Second Sunday on King Street, though they seem so much less enjoyable when the weather is 90-plus degrees.

Art For Charity has another reception on June 10. The Zumbathon For Literacy will raise money for the Trident Literacy Association.

The Charleston RiverDogs have games against the Asheville Tourists.

If you see a giraffe or rhinoceros wandering around downtown, don’t fret. You’re not going crazy. It’s just the Charleston Bike Safari.

Pay tribute at the Run for the Nine Memorial 5K. There’s also the Nephcure Walk, which will raise money to help find a cure for nephrotic syndrome and FSGS.

Besides the final Piccolo Fringe events, The Have Nots! have a couple of shows. And perpetual stoner Doug Benson is doing his stand-up at the American Theater.

The Sound of Charleston has its last concert on Saturday. And students, alumni, and faculty of Porter-Gaud School perform their Cyclone Music II.

Lucinda Eden (formerly known as Eden Boheme) hosts Sunny Side Up, an art show of original etchings by Spain-based Eva Armisen.

The Park Circle Film Society is giving another go at showing Marwencol. It’s a good one, so let’s hope that bad weather doesn’t force another rescheduling.

Authors signing books in town this weekend include Herb Frazier, John Brewton, Ken Burger, Sharon Cooper-Murray, and Susan Hudson Chellis.

You probably can’t remember this year’s Cinco De Mayo, what with the tequila and all, so get a chance to relive it at the All Day Fiesta at Eye Level Art.

Ménage à Trois Burlesque has a surf-and-beach-themed performance at Jimbo’s, with live music from Jason and the Juggernauts. Or see amateur scantily clad women at the Bud Light Lime Bikini Bash.

Get your reggae fix with the Resolvers.

And last week was the kayak rodeo, and this week is the National Get Outdoors and Fishing Week Youth Fishing Rodeo. Still, no mechanical bull.
