With music, movies, theater and more on the schedule, you may need some help narrowing it down. That’s why we’re back with our top 10 events list.
If you want to start the weekend early on Thursday, it’s the first of several chances to check out Christmas cabarets at The Lucas, holiday-themed plays by David Sedaris at Bay Street Theatre and the Performing Arts Collective’s “Black Nativity.”
But there’s only one night to see a documentary directed by a filmmaker with local ties, “Bayou Maharajah.” This film, focused on the life of New Orleans pianist James Booker, will screen only once, at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Jepson Center.
There are still a few tickets left to see comedian Dave Chappelle on Friday at the Savannah Civic Center, so you better snatch one up if you want a seat.
Saturday brings plenty of events for adults and kids alike. For the 21-and-older crowd, check out “The 12 Bars of Christmas.” This pub crawl is a fun way to help out America’s Second Harvest. If you’re in the mood for some lighthearted exercise, head out to Tybee for the annual Toure de Lights Bike Ride.
The Trustees Theater is offering a full day of films and fun for all ages, including free popcorn and drinks along with visits with Santa and holiday activities. They will be screening “Mickey’s Christmas Carol,” “Rise of the Guardians” and “Meet Me in St. Louis” throughout the day Saturday. All they ask in return is a food donation to go to local pantries.
And we haven’t even gotten to the wealth of music options going on all weekend. Want to know what doo-hop sounds like? Well head to The Sentient Bean on Friday for a free show by New Orleans-based Stoop Kids. Local bands are getting in on the action all weekend, too, with rockers Lullwater at the Jinx, rap/hip-hop artists The Wild Bunch at Dollhouse Productions and jam band 2ToneFish at Rachael’s 1190.
There’s plenty more on this list, and you can find it all on our Big Calendar. It’s going to be just gorgeous this weekend, so get out there and enjoy it, Savannah!
