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).

Movember Mustache Bash at Tin Roof: To raise awareness for men’s health — including prostate and testicular cancer and mental illness — the month of November is better known as “No Shave November,” a time when men show their support with facial hair. This year, Charlotte Checkers players and staff members have set their razors aside for the cause. They’ll show off the hairy results at this post-game bash at Tin Roof with prizes and drink specials. Nov. 30, 4 p.m. Tin Roof, 210 East Trade St., Suite 286.
