Five Things to Do Today

1. Last chance to see artists offer their visual response to the idea of The Human Condition. On display through Sept. 27, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., C. Emerson Fine Arts, free admission. Pictured at left: A lithograph from Lee Lee's "Nga in Tru Vu's Garden" series.

2. Comedian Margaret Cho brings her "Beautiful Tour" to Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center. On the fence about seeing her? Check out her blog — she has some hilariously vulgar comments about Sarah Palin, like, "I want to steam up those glasses and show her what a pitbull with lipstick really needs - doggy style." Special guest comic Liam Sullivan opens tonight's show. 8 p.m., Carol Morsani Hall-TBPAC, $28.50 and $48.50.

3. Fashion Week Tampa Bay kicks off at The Ritz Ybor with a runway show featuring Francisco Azucar, Robert Buck, Trineice Cagua, Bebe Ziegler, Darrium Mitchell and Aruk Orhrrvani as well as select students from International Academy of Design. 7 p.m., $55.

4. The second annual Photo Mojo! — a photography auction for both beginning and veteran collectors — is a joint fundraiser for Florida Museum of Photographic Arts and Friends of the Library of Tampa-Hillsborough County. 6:30-9 p.m., Neiman Marcus at International Plaza, $60.

5. Bella Brava offers a special three-course tasting menu. For $24, diners enjoy antipasto or dessert, a pasta course, an entree, and a glass of house wine. For more info or to make reservations, call 727-895-5515.
