What To Watch For
Thursday-Friday What's the deal with Jerry Seinfeld? He's been in semi-retirement since his show ended, but this week he performs at the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg. And you know what his best joke was? Those commercials he did for Microsoft.
Friday-Saturday There is only one RuPaul, but you will have two chances to see the world's most famous drag queen perform as the headlining act at the new L'Olivier Cabaret in Ybor. — Adam Newman firstname.lastname@example.org
