Five things to keep on your radar: Fun with pi, Top Chef yumminess, spring break already(!), a Streisand connection and our big deal

For the math-challenged among us, the fact that Monday's date is 3.14 doesn't mean that much (except that it's three days until St. Patrick's Day). But that doesn't mean we can't take advantage of some fun on Pi Day, the annual ode to the symbol for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. The actual number has been calculated out to a trillion digits by computers. Naturally, the folks at the Dali Museum, with its mathematical touches, are celebrating with a special admission. But over at MOSI, you can gain free admission by solving logic-based puzzles. Us, we'll stick to the green beer kind of holidays and leave the math to others.

Tampa Bay will have its own Top Chef competition at the A La Carte Pavilion. Nine local masters of the kitchen will cook up a tableside dinner as they vie for the title of Top Chef Tampa Bay. It's all for a good cause, the Child Abuse Council, and Jack Harris will emcee.

And we didn't even know Barbra Streisand had a kid sister, but she's in concert at 1 p.m. at Ruth Eckerd. Tickets to Roslyn Kind are $17-$25, and there's a lunch beforehand. The New York Times had this to say about her latest CD, Come What May: "splendid and sizzling."

If you see kids out and about today more than usual, you can relax. It's spring break for the students in Hernando and Pasco counties. Parents in Pinellas and Hillsborough, consider this a wake-up call for you to hop on the clue bus and check out our spring break camps list.

With Half-Off Depot, you can enjoy savings of more than 50 percent on items like facials, restaurant meals and area attractions. We feature a  big deal each day.
