Five for your radar: A doggie date, Rays are back, Festa and testa!, down at the Wanee and hot tickets this week

Lately we've been wondering if there's anything you CAN'T take your dog to. The answer apparently is no, because now you can take them to the outdoor production of Rent for tonight's performance only. The American Stage in the Park show is "pay what you can" and you can bring your (well-behaved and leashed) dog for free. It's at 8 p.m. at Demens Landing in St. Petersburg.

They missed a chance to make up more ground at the expense of the Boston Red Sox when Wednesday's game was rained out, but now the Rays are back home in the Trop — where they are winless for the season. Will they get back to their winning ways against the Minnesota Twins? Find out at 6:40.

Tickets might not still be available at the door, but if they are, you're in for an Italian wine treat as part of Festa Italiana's annual wine tasting. It features more than 70 wines from Italy's diverse growing regions and is a benefit for the Italian Club's Restoration Fund.

If you're a fan of Bonnaroo, there's a closer event that you might want to check out. The Wanee Music Festival is right up I-75 in Live Oak and features the Allman Brothers Band, Robert Plant, Galactic, the North Mississippi All-Stars and Rusted Root among others. It kicks off at 9 a.m. and doesn't close until the wee hours of Monday morning.

Ever miss getting good concert tickets because you didn't know when they were going on sale? Not anymore. We've got a roundup every week. This week's hot ticket? Brad Paisley.
