Now that all those pesky holidays are out of the way, Charleston’s social calendar is finally starting to fill up again. This weekend isn’t the city’s busiest, but there’s plenty of stuff going on to keep you occupied.

You can start your Friday night with an evening candlelight tour at Fort Moultrie, hosted by the Tramp Brigade Organization of Historical Interpreters. Or there’s always the art walk, which has openings at SCOOP, Hamlet Fine Art Gallery, M Gallery of Fine Art, Ella Walton Richardson Fine Art Gallery, and Coco Vivo Fine Art and Design.

Long live the king at the Elvis Presley Art Show, where a ton of artists will celebrate the rock star’s life.

Patriots Point has free admission all weekend. Speaking of naval history, cadets from the Citadel will participate in the Star of the West reenactment.

Sunday is a Second Sunday on King Street. While you’re there, you should stop by Mellow Mushroom and help the pizza joint commemorate its 10th anniversary. Ten years is like 40 years in restaurant time.

Guest speaker Mark Tanenbaum will honor Dr. Martin Luther King at The Life and Works of Dr. King at K.K. Beth Elohim.

The Stingrays have games all weekend. We’re sure you can fit at least one into your schedule. Plus on Saturday, you can bring your pooch for Dog Days.

Friday and Saturday are the semi-final rounds of the Charleston Comedy Festival Stand Up Competition. The top three from each night go on to the finals on Jan. 18. Theatre 99 also has Comedy Combat and The Have Nots! shows this weekend.

The Greater Park Circle Film Society hosts A Night of Shorts, featuring three S.C. filmmakers.

Avery Caswell will sign copies of Luck: A Collection of Facts, Fiction, Incantation & Verse at the Town Center Barnes & Noble.

Kevin Taylor’s seasonal return visit continues at the Death Cheetah and La Calle show.

Enjoy your first full weekend of the new year.
