There are plenty of great things to enjoy this weekend, most notably the Wine + Food Festival, but if you don't tickets or the big bucks to nosh with the upper crust, here's a bunch of other awesomeness to fill your time with.

As always, the Charleston City Paper has a great round-up of the weekend's events that you can take a peek at right here. They cover all the bases including local theater, benefits for Haiti, concerts and more, but we've got a few more events we wanted to toss your way.

We'll break it down day-by-day for you, just cause we like you so much!


- Bill Mead, native to Beaufort, has a love affair with food and his paintings cross the lines between Realism and Surrealism in a witty way. Check out his solo show that opens at Scoop Studios tonight at 5 p.m.

- The College of Charleston men's tennis team hosts Boston College at Patriots Point at 3 p.m.

- The Charleston City Paper's round-up already has this covered, but Henry Rollins will be at the Music Farm this evening delivering a powerful spoken word performance that is not to be missed.


- The Charleston RiverDogs’ annual Job Fair, where interested folks can apply for game-day working positions with the Class-A affiliate of the New York Yankees, will be held today from 9 a.m. to 12 noon at Riley Park.

- The City of Charleston has lots of parks, likely far more than you know and the Charleston Parks Conservancy wants to help you get to know a few and see that they're good for more than just driving past. The first ever Park Week starts up today so be sure you support our local green spaces!

- Join Ted's Butherblock and the local foodie crew for the 'Locals First Block Party', a celebration of Charleston’s local food culture.


- The RiverDogs Job Fair continues today, don't miss out on finding the perfect summer job.

- If you're looking for a new brunch spot, look no further than Two River Tavern. They're rolling out a brand new brunch menu today that will wow you.

Well, that about does it for this edition of the weekend round-up. Have fun, be safe, and don't eat yourselves into a food coma.
