Weekend Round-Up: the Monster Mash 

The best events in Charleston, Oct. 29-31

Doesn’t it suck when the best day of the entire year — a.k.a. Halloween ­— happens on a Sunday? What the hell am I supposed to do with that? Show up for work the next day hung over and still in costume? 

But most of Charleston is throwing their Halloween festivities on Saturday. For those events, and for any other haunted happenings happening throughout the weekend, visit our roundup here.

Since most of the debauchery of the holiday occurs during nighttime hours, spend your day doing some good at the Daisy Dash or the Fight for Air Run/Walk.

This week’s Rocky Horror-inspired Glee episode has been getting all sorts of backlash in our office and on the interwebs. Better see Charleston Ballet Theatre do it right instead.

What are you, chicken? Take the Tour da Coops at the McClellanville Arts Center and learn all about raising the fowl for eggs and meat.

The CofC Concert Choir will perform on Friday evening, and Charleston Musical Heritage Productions will host the Sound of Charleston that night as well.

Wildflour Bakery celebrates their first anniversary with some pumpkin painting and tasty treats. You’ll leave with the freshest, prettiest jack-o-lantern on your block.

Since it doesn’t seem like very many kids these days collect pennies for UNICEF anymore, dine at Bistro 536 to donate instead.

A Global Masquerade is Passport 72’s internationally themed masquerade ball and benefit.

An ’80s themed Monthly Variations happens Friday night.

I can just smell the funnel cake already: The Coastal Carolina Fair is now open.

It’s a big weekend for shows. Band of Horses, plus Jenny and Johnny, are playing, and so is Pretty Lights.

If you want to get your fright on at the theater, see Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps, Poe: The Conquerer Worm, Return to the Forbidden Planet, and the Weir. There’s also the 1920s film Nosferatu at the Olde North Charleston Picture House.

But if you’re looking for something a little less scary, stop by Short Attn Span Thtr, or get some laughs at Brian T. Shirley, the Charleston Comedy Festival Stand-Up Competition, Improv Smackdown!, or Improv Riot.

Before the kids get on a massive sugar high, take ’em to see Rumplestiltskin

Charleston Moves will hold their inaugural group ride on the Battery2Beach route on Saturday.

The PGA Tour makes its way to Daniel Island for the Nationwide Tour Championship.

Spend some time in Wagener Terrace at the neighborhood’s oyster roast.

So there you have it. Meanwhile, I’m going to be out waiting for the Great Pumpkin. He’ll show up this year. I can just feel it.
