To do today
Win, lose, just draw Sidewalk drawing isn't child's play. As part of Chalk Walk in Old Hyde Park Village, artists will spend 21⁄2 days creating artwork in a 10- by 10-foot square of sidewalk. Tonight, you can meet the artists as they begin their pieces from 6 to 10 p.m. and enjoy live music from Urban Gypsies, or check back on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for the final judging. 1622 Snow Ave., Tampa. Free. (813) 221-2787. oldhydepark.com.
Forever, just today Great art is truly timeless, but artists and art lovers, of course, are mortal. Tonight, you can celebrate the opening of re:Age, an exhibit where artists reflect on age, creativity and longevity. The evening starts at 6 p.m. at NOVA 535 Art Lounge, 535 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St. N, St. Petersburg. Free. (727) 821-6682. nova535.com.
Go downtown, party down Normally downtown Tampa turns into a ghost town after 5:30 p.m. on a weekday, but stick around and get a head start on your weekend at Downtown Live After Five, featuring a free concert from Rubix Cubed. Stop by Poe Plaza (201 N Franklin St.) between Tampa City Center and the Hyatt Regency for happy-hour drink specials and some of that trademark Florida sunshine.
