the new family-friendly hot spot

Get ready to rummmble! This weekend only, sit courtside as some of the most talented (and hilarious) athletes in the world smash rim-rattling dunks and land gravity-defying trick shots. The Harlem Globetrotters' incredible ball handling wizardry and side-splitting comedy will have you at the edge of your seat. Then, keep the ball rolling with Sunday's USC Women's Basketball Game against the Kentucky Wildcats. Looking for a calmer setting after all those hoops? Bring your Pinterest projects to the JCC for a day of creativity at Craft & Kvell or head over to The Nick for the comedy, The Interview or the gripping drama, Wild.

the new historic hot spot

Journey back in time for a Jurassic adventure with Dinosaurs: A Bite Out of Time, the South Carolina State Museum's popular blockbuster exhibit before it goes extinct this Sunday. Then, spiff up on more recent history with the Impressions of Chimneyville gallery, part of the commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Burning of Columbia. Finally, end your weekend with the reverent biopic, Selma
