The Weekend Ahead: June 17-20

In addition to the Shine Salon Anniversary Party and the St. John Open House event that we’ve already shared with you this week, there are a few more things going on this weekend that you may want to check out:

The South End Soul Festival takes place on Friday and Saturday and is the perfect opportunity to check out all the great galleries, artist studios, restaurants, bars, and shops that make South End so fantastic. Check out Charlotte magazine’s online preview to learn more!

Alive After Five kicks off again tonight at the EpiCentre – if that’s your kind of scene. Wear comfortable heels, ladies. There is a lot of standing. Guys, you may want to stop in at the CVS at EpiCentre and pick up an extra bar of deodorant – nobody likes to flirt with a guy who has sweat through his blue button down.

Michael Kors in SouthPark is having their semi-annual sale, which means 40-50% off of his sleek sunglasses, bags, shoes, apparel and other accessories. Cha-Ching!

Step by Sloan, Fresh Boutique, and Monkee’s of Morrocroft are all offering markdowns (some as high as 50%) which makes this a great weekend to support your local retailers! (Actually, every weekend is a great weekend to support your local retailers!)

Finally, there are some GREAT shows on our local stages this weekend including Dixie Swim Club at Theatre Charlotte, Five Course Love at the Actor’s Theatre and Oklahoma! at the Duke Family Performance Hall in Davidson.
