TUESDAY.  We might as well start calling Tuesdays free music day. You’ll have to chill all day until 9 p.m., then scramble to decide who you’re going to see. Acoustic jazz, funk, and Latin will be the kinds of melodies you’ll hear at the Pour House with The Pulse Trio. Meanwhile, locals Not the Droids You’re Looking For will be bringing some indie-pop to Tattooed Moose, and the Recovery Room will be hosting Charleston rock band Tickle Switch.

WEDNESDAY. The Charleston Summer Classic II Horse Show is still going on through Saturday, and a slow Wednesday is the perfect day to hop on by. Since it’s in its second round, spectators will get to see the most intense rounds of the competition.

THURSDAY. Get your new age on at Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation (TM) Program, where you’ll learn all the benefits of the meditation. If you’re the literary type, Jennifer Tubbiolo will be laying down some knowledge on publishing during her talk called All Roads Lead to Publishing.

FRIDAY. There’s a brand new personal training studio in North Chuck, reForm Studios, and they’ll be kicking off with their reFORM Studios Grand Opening Party. An experienced freeloader’s paradise, the party will offer happy hour refreshments, party favors, and a DJ. Speaking of launch parties, Geno Jones from STAR 99.7 will be having a Game Recognize Game Pre-Launch Party for his new book. And speaking of books, the Johns Island Library Book Sale starts today — it’s today and Saturday only, so go quick.

SATURDAY. You'll get a free ride if you can roll out of bed early enough. The RIDEdwin Bike Breakfast will be hosting a breakfast and bike ride in memory of Edwin Gardner. Continue your outdoorsy day by hitting up the Francis Marion Caravan Auto Tour, where you’ll get to see all sorts of nature (just be sure to register first). In the evening, check out the Summer Arts Institute Exhibition, where students in the Summer Arts Institute program will display the fruits of their labors.

SUNDAY. Tomorrow is the last day to see the Piccolo Spoleto exhibit, Manifesting Memory: Plantation Legacies of the South. Don’t kid yourself, you’ll be way too tired to stop by after work, so go see it before it’s dismantled. Then end the week on a comedic note with TROM (Tin Roof Open Mic Comedy), and either laugh or get laughed at. Or laughed “with.”
