FRIDAY, SATURDAY, SUNDAY & MONDAY
It’s not Thirsty Thursday, but it’s $1 beer night at the ballpark none the less on Friday as the Myrtle Beach Pelicans kick off a four-game set against the Lynchburg Hillcats at TicketReturn.com Field. As with Thirsty Thursday, select draft brewskis will be a solitary buckaroo from 6-8 p.m. Friday. Let’s call it Frothy Friday, shall we? The Pelicans are a High Class A affiliate of the Texas Rangers and the Hillcats hope to one day do the Tomahawk Chop in the ATL. Game times are at 7:05 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Monday and 6:05 p.m. Sunday. Saturday’s game will commemorate the 35th anniversary of the infamous Disco Demolition Night held at old Comiskey Park in Chicago, where an explosion of disco records incited an on-field riot. Advance tickets are $8, $11 and $13, available at the stadium box office, online at www.myrtlebeachpelicans.com or by calling 918-6000. TicketReturn.com Field at Pelicans Ballpark is at 1251 21st Ave. N., Myrtle Beach at the intersection with Robert M. Grissom Parkway, Myrtle Beach.
Sort of like a drive-in movie theater, except you don’t have to sit in your car and muck around with that clunky speaker set, The Market Common continues its Movie Under the Stars series with an outdoor screening of the Pixar classic “ A Bug’s Life” on Friday evening at Valor Park. Admission is free, and the movie begins at dusk (approximately 9 p.m.). Valor Park is off of Farrow Parkway at The Market Common, on the former Myrtle Beach Air Force Base, between U.S. 17 Bypass and U.S. 17 Business, south of Myrtle Beach International Airport.

Yes, the World Cup Final (finally) is set for Sunday afternoon, but if you’ve been bitten by futbol fever and can’t wait until then, check out some soccer in the flesh as the Myrtle Beach Mutiny, a local semi-pro team, hosts its final game of the regular season with a match against the Upward Stars on Friday at Ashley Booth Field.Game time is 7 p.m. Friday.
