Pretend like Monday is never coming back again and live it up this weekend. You deserve it.
There are some pretty big things happening in Charleston this weekend, namely the kick-off of the South Carolina Stingrays 2009-10 season, Mr. Willie Nelson's concert and D-lister Kathy Griffin's standup comedy show. Don't you dare think the fun stops there.
The Charleston City Paper has a nice round-up of events that are taking place Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but we have a few more to add to the agenda.
So take a read of what we've got for you below, and give the City Paper a look for more winners.
