On your radar: Glam-rock with Elton John, Halloween with Mickey, and Freud-Dalí weirdness with American Stage

Elton John: You know the king of glam-rock will put on a party onstage for the grand reopening of the revamped USF Sun Dome on Friday. $39.50–$139.50. (813) 974-3002.

1905 Day: Columbia Restaurants travel a time warp to 1905, with low prices on Sunday: chicken and yellow rice or boliche for $2.95, the famous 1905 Salad for $1.95 and flan for 50 cents.
