Ybor Pub Crawl: It's Round 2 of this summer's monthly Ybor Pub Crawl. This one uses a specially designed T-shirt ($12) that signals the server to give you drink and food specials. See details at

Steve Aoki: The son of Olympic wrestler and Benihana chain founder Rocky Aoki, this master of the remix has a high energy set that tops a day of local and regional DJ talent. Doors open at 7 p.m. at Jannus Live, 16 Second St. N, St. Petersburg. $17.50 advance, $22.50 day of show. (727) 565-0551.

The Tour de France, 11:30 a.m., Versus: Maybe Lance Armstrong is hoping all the other riders are going to implode like the French national soccer team did at the World Cup. Otherwise, we wish he'd stay retired.

SERIES FINALE, Three Rivers, 8 p.m., CBS: There would be tension in tonight's episode, in which Andy moves a patient to the top of a kidney donor list, but we'll never find out what happens anyway, so who cares?


Rain, rain go away … but if it doesn't, we've got rainy day fun at
