It’s the most anticipated week of the year, and no, we’re not talking about Christmas. It’s Shark Week. Kick off the fin-filled extravaganza with Shark, Rattle & Roll at the South Carolina Aquarium. The Broadcast and Plane Jane will perform outside on the Riverside Terrace while DJ Mike Bills spins records inside the aquarium. If you’re looking for a bite to eat, Cha Cha’s Tequila Bar will be there with free grub for the night. Since the party’s sponsored by Landshark Lager, the event will also have a variety of drink specials. “It’s a really fun event featuring live music, and it’s all for a good cause,” says the aquarium’s public relations manager Kate Dittloff. “It really keeps our facility running and helps take care of our animals.” Even better, the whole aquarium will be open to guests, including the new Madagascar exhibit and, of course, shark tanks. Guests must be 21 to attend.
Price: $20/members, $25/non-members
