Salvador Dali's Birthday Celebration: The surrealist would have been 106 this year, so the museum is having a party — and there's cake! (Wouldn't it be cool if the candles melted like watches?) It kicks off months of events leading up to the new museum's opening next year. Take an early lunch at 11 a.m. today at the Dali Museum, 1000 Third St. S, St. Petersburg. Free.
Richie Kotzen: The heavy metal guitar virtuoso, who co-wrote Poison hits Stand and Until You Suffer Some and opened for the Rolling Stones' 2006 Japan tour, plays at 8 p.m. at Skipper's Smokehouse, 910 Skipper Road in Tampa. $20 at the door. (813) 977-6474.
KIDS AND FAMILY
Adventure Island free: Ah, the perks of being a Florida resident. If you buy a one-day pass for Busch Gardens, you get a day at Adventure Island for free. The Bush Gardens ticket is good until Dec. 31 and the Adventure Island admission must be used by Oct. 24. See adventureisland.com for details.
Glee, 9 p.m., Fox: Lea Michele's Rachel has laryngitis. Maybe she got it from announcing the Tonys with Jeff Daniels.
9 by Design, 10 p.m., Bravo: Cortney works to raise money for a bone marrow transplant for a friend's leukemia-stricken child, but also agrees to do a renovation without finalizing a budget. This is who you entrust your money matters to?
V, 10 p.m., ABC: Erica searches for a scientist who has made a weapon the Visitors fear. Can we just call it red dust now, or do we have to wait until Michael Ironside shows up?
OK Go: We love their videos (Here It Goes Again on treadmills, This Too Shall Pass with a Rube Goldberg contraption), so see if this band can keep the fun-but-not-dumb vibe going in a live show at 9 p.m. Friday at Crowbar in Ybor City. $15. (813) 241-8600.
