If you're afraid to have an audience, this dive bar isn't for you. Jeff's is so small, every single eyeball will be on you. Membership costs $1, and tips for the DJ may or may not help you get on stage quicker. 1601 Montford Drive. 704-525-0425. www.jeffsbucketshop.com.

This year's Saturday market (happening 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.) comes courtesy of the folks at Charlotte Regional Market and Atherton Food Hub Market. Local organics and decent prices, and even a community garden is in the works. 4800 Wedgewood Drive. www.wedgewoodchurch.com.
