Five mighty-fine ways to spend the weekend with food and drink throughout the region.

Between 7:30 and 9 p.m. Friday at Nature’s Food Patch, a Local Art & Wine Tasting will mix original works from six of the Clearwater health food store’s employees with a special wine tasting. All the art has been created by NFP crew members in different departments, including produce, body care and wellness. Free. 1225 Cleveland St., Clearwater, 727-443-6703.

Get to the Ybor CIty Saturday Market from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. Locals can shop the wares of local vendors and artisans, including raw honey, produce and tasty food. Dogs are welcome. Free, money for goodies. 1901 N. 19th St., Tampa, 813-241-2442.

A fully loaded tap list will help a popular Dunedin craft brewery celebrate a milestone. An updated beer selection for the 7venth Sun 5th Anniversary, planned for noon to 11:30 p.m., is listed online, but the special suds include West Coast to West Coast (Cascade and 7venth Sun barrel blend with orange zest), Mama Firefly (gin barrel-aged saison with orange zest) and Outer Layer (IPA with coffee fruit). Wear a jacket — it’ll be chilly. Also check out the pinned post on the brewery’s Facebook event for a guide to parking. Free, money for beer. 1012 Broadway, Dunedin, 727-733-3013.

Be at Lowry Parcade & Tavern after 5 p.m. Saturday for a chance to win free beer — by playing video games. Guests will act as a video game bartender via a classic arcade game, and the person with the night’s highest score will win a $30 gift card or a free growler, plus a fill of up to $23. Free, money for beer and games. 1213 W. Waters Ave., Tampa, 813-915-9180.

In St. Pete, drink craft beer while participating in some friendly competition from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday. Beer and ping-pong lovers alike can compete in the KINGS DTSP 1st Annual Brewery Ping Pong Tournament. Players will battle it out with four local breweries — Cycle Brewing, Green Bench Brewing Co., Coppertail Brewing Co. and Barley Mow Brewing Company — to win free swag. Free, money for beer. 937 Central Ave., St. Petersburg, 727-914-2111.
