You should know the drill by now.  There’s plenty of STUFF TO DO in Charleston and all over the Mountain State as folks indulge in the stereotypical drinking of the green this weekend, so let’s just soak in this partial list of suggestions.

As I have been copying and pasting of late, this a good time to remind you that THIS IS NOT A COMPLETE LIST OF EVENTS.  It’s just a starting point, so don’t expect anything comprehensive, and if you feel strongly about me leaving anything out, feel free to mention it in the comments.

Live Music is back at Taylor Books. There is no cover charge, and shows start at 7:30 PM.  Unfortunately, I’m writing this early and they’re posting who’s playing late, so you’ll just have to go find out for yourself who they got this week.

The World Famous Empty Glass Cafe has some great stuff this week  to tell you about. Nolan Collins will be playing every Wednesday in March at 9 PM. Thursday at 5:30 PM the Helping Hour with Swingstein & Robin makes the world a better place with music. Thursday at 10 PM Eric Robbins hosts an open mic night. Friday, Tim Courts plays during happy hour.  Saturday at 10 PM The Charleston Rouges get all Celtic all o’er the stage. Sunday at 10 PM it’s the always-hapnin’ Post Mountain Stage Jam, hosted by The Carpenter Ants.  You can check below for the graphics for other cool weekend shows at The Empty Glass.

Please remember that the pandemic is still not entirely over yet. It’s a going concern with the ‘rona surging again. And now there are seasonal allergies, the flu, dervishes-both whirling and stationary, evil Leprachauns who won’t share their delicious cereal, people who still post anti-Obama memes and other damned good reasons to be careful. Many people who have very good reasons are still wearing masks, and many of us, understandably, are still nervous about being in crowds, masked or not. Be kind and understanding  while you’re out.

Keep in mind that all shows are subject to change or be cancelled at the last minute.

If you’re up for going out, here are a few suggestions for the weekend, roughly in order…
