Do It Today: Pretty Paul Parsons, Skywalker and "Money Madness"

The St. Valentine's Massacre of Pretty Paul Parsons at Side Splitters Comedy Club is billed as "12 comics and 1 dirty, perverted, ugly old man." Parsons ain't pretty (see photo), but this roast by his fellow comedians should offer ample evidence to back up his status as Tampa's dirtiest old man. Wed. Feb. 11, 8:30 p.m., Side Splitters Comedy Club, 12938 Dale Mabry Hwy, Tampa, 813-960-1197.

Bill Walker had never even spent the night outdoors when he set out to hike the entire 1,275-mile Appalachian Trail in one season. Earning the nickname Skywalker because of his height (6-11), the middle-aged businessman also amassed a lifetime's worth of yarns to tell around the campfire. He'll spin some tonight at a general meeting of the Tampa Bay Sierra Club. Skywalker: Close Encounters on the Appalachian Trail, Wed. Feb. 11, 6:30 p.m. social time, 7 p.m. meeting. Children's Board of Hillsborough County, 1002 E. Palm Ave., Tampa (Ybor City), gated parking behind building. Free admission. Public invited.

And here's a lecture that sounds like just what the doctor ordered: "A Cure for Money Madness" by "wealth advisor" Spencer Sherman (author of a book by the same name), who promises to help us overcome "distorted childhood perceptions of money." Like the perception that we don't have much and we're even gonna lose that? Ask him that and other questions tonight. Wed. Feb. 11, 6 p.m., Miller Auditorium, Eckerd College.
