Can you believe it’s already August? Time flies when you’re having fun, I guess. Speaking of which, here are some fun events that will make the time fly this weekend.


The 3rd Annual All Pearl White Affair at FireWater (8708 J.W. Clay Blvd.): This University-area party is for a more mature crowd – the age minimum is 25 after 10 p.m. – but it’s also the perfect dinner place for date night beforehand. 704-549-0050.

Guys With Ties’ Summer Untied Concert at Prohibition (200 N. Tryon St.): A networking event where you can meet the Guys With Ties, enjoy live music from the band 5 On Sundays, and have a chance to win tickets to GWT’s Sept. 14 Casino Night. 7 p.m.-midnight. No cover; a percentage of sales will go to Guys With Ties to support upcoming charity events.


Unfiltered Brew and BBQ at Queen City Q (225 E. 6th St.): Enjoy $3 brews from the Olde Mecklenburg Brewery and $5 Skinnygirl cocktails; live music from the Atlas Shrug Project; and a cornhole tournament kicking off (or throwing off, rather) at 2:30 p.m. Proceeds benefit A Child’s Place. 704-334-8437.

The Charlotte Hounds game/tailgate party at Memorial Stadium (310 N. Kings Drive): Charlotte’s major league lacrosse team plays its final home game of the season at 7 p.m., but from 3-6:30 fans can enjoy food, beer and a cornhole tournament, and get a koozie plus a ticket to the game – all for just $10. 704-206-1515.
