Going out in Charlotte doesn't have to be expensive. In fact, to prove that statement, we've compiled a list of cheap - $10 or less - things to do in the Q.C. this weekend. These events may vary, but they're all entertaining and they won't break your bank (piggy banks excluded).

Science on the Rocks: Fright at the Museum at Discovery Place: The adults-only night will be Halloween focused, so wear a costume if you have one.
