Posted By on Fri, Dec 26, 2014 at 4:34 PM

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).

Charlotte Comedy Theater at Wet Willies: The female ensemble of CCT hosts this special night of girl talk, titled "That's What She Said." $10. Dec. 26, 8 p.m. Wet Willies, 900 N.C. Music Factory Blvd. (held in a private room in the back). 803-792-1608.

Su Casa at Petra's Piano Bar & Cabaret: This Su Casa is set to bring folks a refreshing night of B-sides and “rare grooves.” Resident DJ Justice Asaru-Re Uzn and special guest DJ 2-Tone Jones are slated to handle the spinning, which will feature an array of songs — that you might not be used to hearing — from a variety of artists. There will also be art by Dammit Wesley on showcase, in addition to face painting, film and more. Dec. 27, 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. Petra's Piano Bar and Cabaret, 1919 Commonwealth Ave. 704-332-6608.

Kwanzaa Celebration at Tuckaseegee Recreation Center: Nubian Rootz Cultural Center presents this festive event featuring African music, dancing, storytelling and special guests, including drummers, dancers and more. There’s also an African marketplace with handmade arts and crafts. This year, Reggie Singleton, the executive director of The Males Place — a Charlotte mentoring program for 12- to 18-year-old males — will be honored for his hard work within the community. Dec. 27, 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Tuckaseegee Recreation Center, 4820 Tuckaseegee Road. (Anita Overcash)
