Sorry if this week's picks seem very Tampa-lopsided. Pinellas folks, we'll make it up to you — promise!


The Fire Sale Diamond Man/No Milk show at Cafe Hey. This one combines cutting-edge sounds with equally vanguard visual art by Tony and Anthony Zollo.

Back-to-school anxieties plague parents and kids alike. Get a leg up on the whole ordeal at the Glazer Children's Museum's Back to School Fair.

While you're in Tampa, make a swim for the Florida Aquarium to partake of elegant food and wine, courtesy of the Easter Seals, at the Eighth Annual Vino, Java and jazz.

Attention, fashionistas and art lovers. Wearable Art 7 is not sold out as of this writing (well, the bleacher seats are, that is). This year, Ernie Locke's band the Lambasters play the after-party.


If you haven't been to the American Victory Battleship at Channelside yet, Sunday is an ideal day to visit, when you can take part in the Spirit of '45 nationwide event with war reenactors and more.
