We’ve got to start off Good Friday by addressing Easter. There’s so much stuff going on, and most of it on Saturday (which means you have no excuse not to go to church), so hop to it. Ha, I crack myself up.

What might be the coolest event is the Cane Bay Egg Drop in Summerville, when a helicopter will drop a ton of eggs on Cane Bay Plantation. There’s also an egg hunt at Middleton Place, an Easter Festival, at Freshfields Village, the Hat Ladies annual Easter Promenade downtown, the Easter Handmade Bazaar at Hello Deli in North Charleston, the Isle of Palms Easter Egg Hunt, an Easter Sunday Car Show, and the rescheduled Bunnies and Bluegrass Children’s Festival at Irvin-House Vineyards. And restaurants like Blu, S.N.O.B., and Swamp Fox.

But, if you’re like me — a Jew — then all of this bunny and egg stuff might not be super appealing. For you, there’s this:

Friday is officially Earth Day. Celebrate at Charleston Eco Fashion.

The RiverDogs have a couple of games against the Greenville Drive, and the Lowcountry Highrollers have their bout Malice in Wonderland. They are so good at coming up with clever badass wordplay.

It’s almost time for Charleston Pride. Help crown the King and Queen at Prom Night.

The pop-up Charleston Dialecticon hopes to create a dialogue about social change while presenting art in the outdoor space behind Read Bros.

The 3 on 3 Long Form Improv Tournament Prelim Rounds conitnue, and the Tin Roof is hosting an Open Mic Comedy Night.

See The Original Peter Pan or Proof this weekend.

The first Moonlight Mixer of the season will be held on Friday night at the Folly Beach Fishing Pier, for all you shaggers out there.

Get your hands on some handmade goods at Artists and Artisans of the Lowcountry and or the Folly Beach Art and Craft Guild’s Spring/Summer Show Series.

The City Paper often posts Sacred Harp events in our calendar, but a lot of peole, including myself, probably don’t know much about it. That’s where the doc Awake, My Soul: The Story of the Sacred Harp comes in. It’s at the Olde North Charleston Picture House.

If you’re a fan of local alcoholic beverage La Bubbly, you might want to stop by Fuel’s Bloody Bubbles Mixology Competition this week .

Authors John R. Young and Judy Heath have book signings in town.

Now that spring is here, it’s time to start planting. Stock up at the South Carolina Native Plant Society Spring Plant Sale.

And try out that bulk quinoa recipe for the Slow Food Potluck Dinner.
