Monday, businesses were boarded up all throughout downtown, from the eerie, wind-pummeled ghost town of King Street to the abandoned flooded Charleston City Market. Sandbags and plywood were a common view everywhere you looked.

However, as the sun came out Tuesday morning and the aggressive waters receded, evacuees started to make their return to the Holy City and some of those locked doors were reopened. 

Though not all businesses are back into normal operating hours, several are wasting no time in getting right back into the swing of things.

Here are the arts and entertainment venues that will be open tonight and tomorrow for those events you thought might be cancelled.
