Salvador Dali's Birthday Celebration: The surrealist would have been 106 this year, so the museum is having a party — and there's cake! Shaped like the new $36 million building, no less. Take an early lunch at 11 a.m. Tuesday at the Dali Museum, 1000 Third St. S, St. Petersburg. Free.

Tampa Bay Wine & Food Festival: It kicks off at 8 p.m. Friday with Lush, a swanky tasting of champagne and gourmet cuisine at the Don CeSar resort in St. Pete Beach ($200). The Grand Tasting and seminars are 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday ($75, $100 VIP). Then shift down the beach in the evening to the Postcard Inn for barbecue and bourbon ($45, $65 VIP).

Date Night

Tropical Heatwave: This huge, sweaty music fest hits the Cuban Club in Ybor City starting at 5 p.m. Saturday. Headliners are roots rocker Alejandro Escovedo, blues and folk singer Ruthie Foster and piano-boogie hero Rev. Billy C. Wirtz, but with 46 bands on eight stages, you'll find something for everyone. $32 advance, $40 at the door. (813) 248-2954.

Kids and family
