Monday: Women can enjoy free bubbly beverages, samples, and steep discounts at Badd Kitty's Ladies Night. I assume by the store's name and its excessive use of consonants, it is for adults only.
Tuesday: If you are like me, and leave your thermostat on 68 degrees from April to October, it may behoove you to stop by the Sustainability Institute's Home Energy Conservation Workshops. The lectures will teach you how to improve the comfort and efficiency of your house.
Wednesday: Kids will enjoy tonight's free events. Author Jonathan Miller will be reading from his book series The Adventures of Sammy the Wonder Dachshund. The Terrace's Family Film Series continues with National Velvet. The 1940s classic tells the story of a young girl (Elizabeth Taylor) jockeying a violent horse to racing glory.
Thursday: Live music and art installations will fill Summerville's Short Central for the Summerville DREAM's Third Thursday celebration. Local stores will also be sporting discount prices. Author Patricia Branning will be promoting her Lowcountry cookbook Shrimp, Collards & Grits.
Friday: Fans of Burlesque (aren't we all) will enjoy the Sticky Buns Burlesque Summer Bonanza. Locals Dolly Dee and Dolly Longlegs (my high school nickname) will partner with the Baltimore Sticky Buns Burlesque group for an off-beat brand of performance art Burlesque. The Rothwell/Reinert exhibit opens with Lowcountry inspired art by Junko Ono Rothwell and Rick Reinert. Author Maurita Corcoran will sign copies of her memoir A House Interrupted.
Saturday: The Burd and the Bear exhibit closes with a bang. The event will include new pieces by Lisa Abernathy and Seth Corts along with Kerry Benton's sock creatures, Oak Barrel Tavern's micro brews, fine wines, and cupcakes. At the Citizen-Science for Swallow-Tailed Kites: A Conservation Success Story, researchers Maria Whitehead and Jennifer McCarthey will talk about citizen's efforts in the successful rehabilitation of Swallow-Tailed Kites. I think that is the name of one of the Burlesque show performers. Join Stingrays players and staff as they help clean the Park Circle Butterfly Garden at the Keep North Charleston Beautiful Clean-Up event.
Sunday: The Tin Roof hosts the Little Caesar's Palace 2: Electric Caesarloo night of open mic stand-up comedy. Finally, women over 21 that think they can dance (no Mom, not you) are invited to audition for Sandra's Dance Production Katfly Dancers. Dancing experience is wanted, come prepared to dance.
