A real luau is going down in Surfside Beach on Monday.
A hula and fire dance show are just a part of the fun from 6-9 p.m. at the Surfside Pier.
There will be food and drinks available for purchase plus live music by Coconut Groove.
Grab a chair and a blanket and head down on Monday night.
Going out on a date tonight but looking for something other than dinner and the movies?
Head on up to Uptown Theater at Myrtle Beach mall between Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach for an hour and a half of improv comedy that pits the guys against the girls. The show is only for those ages 18 and up and is a combo of short form and long form improv (described by the trouble as “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” meets “Saturday Night Live”).
The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Call 272-4242. Your date will probably be glad you did.
Shop-a-holics (or moms with school-age kids), rejoice! The weekend you’ve been waiting for is here.
Aug. 7-9 is tax-free weekend in South Carolina, which means you can load up on all sorts of goodies without paying that pesky 6 percent sales tax.
Be warned: North Carolina ended its tax-free weekend last year, so expect some crowds.
Items like clothes, accessories, shoes, school supplies, computers and some home decor are exempt from the sales tax during this time period.
Furniture sales and jewelry sales are not exempt from the sales tax, though. So if you were planning a complete home makeover or popping the question, this might not be the sale weekend for you.
You can find more details on what’s exempt or not at dor.sc.gov.
Some retailers are extending their hours over the weekend and are expecting larger crowds of shoppers. Consider it practice for Black Friday!
