Things to do in Tampa Bay on May 5

Cinco de Mayo: More than just an excuse to drink margaritas, the Red Mesa Cantina and Push Ultra Lounge bring in live music and real Lucha wrestlers for this street party from 3 to 11 p.m. at 128 Third St. S, St. Petersburg. Just down the road at Jannus Live is a free party with El Trabuco, Mariachi Bravo and DJ Erik Valez at 6 p.m. In Tampa, the first 100 people at Mac­Dinton's Irish Pub get a free sombrero from 5 to 8 p.m.

Big D and the Kids Table The ska band was part of last year's Warped Tour, and it plays at 7 p.m. at the State Theatre, 687 Central Ave., St. Petersburg. $10. (727) 895-3045.

Hair: The musical has been rocking Demens Landing in St. Petersburg for American Stage in the Park. Just be warned about the F-bombs and mature themes. It starts at 8 p.m. $13 at the gate. (727) 823-7529.


Free tickets for food: Giving food to the hungry gives you more than a good feeling this week; it gets you free tickets to Disney on Ice. Stop by the St. Pete Times Forum box office 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday for the food drive to benefit Metropolitan Ministries. The first 150 givers will get a pair of Disney on Ice tickets, a four-pack of Storm tickets and discounts for other shows. No minimum donation. Box office is at 401 Channelside Drive in Tampa.


America's Next Top Model, 8 p.m., CW: The big (or should we say little?) guest this week is Rosie Cotton, who is touted as an actress from The Lord of the Rings. You know, she played the girl that Samwise eventually marries.

SEASON FINALE, Fly Girls, 9:30 p.m., CW: Tasha and Mandy audition to be models in an ad campaign for the airline. Why bother? You're already in the TV show.

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, 10 p.m., NBC: Sharon Stone needs a statement from a pregnant rape victim in order to build a case against her attacker. The writers always save the most cringe-inducing story lines for Sharon, you know.


Did you know Kumba is shut down for maintenance at Busch Gardens and Universal has a cool ticket deal right now? And you call yourself a Floridian?! Better catch up on your theme park news at
