Things to do the week of Feb. 9

Things to do this week

Get in the swing of things A nighttime glow-in-the-dark golf game is a great way to get in a round midweek. And it's a lot safer than sneaking onto the course at night. Golfers may sign up as a foursome or a single. Hot dogs, chips and soft drinks will be served, with light refreshments and prizes after play is complete. 6 p.m. Tuesday. Treasure Bay Golf and Tennis facility, 10315 Paradise Blvd., Treasure Island. $20 per player and registration is required. (727) 360-6062.

Punk + bluegrass = punkgrass? Itchin' for a jugband sound with YouTube-era swagger? A dose of Old Crow Medicine Show will do the trick. The Tennessee boys play a mix of old-time folk, country, bluegrass and gospel and inject it with contemporary lyrics. The band picked up lots of jam-band fans at Bonnaroo as well as NPR listeners on A Prairie Home Companion, so expect an eclectic crowd. 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. Tampa Theatre, 711 Franklin St., Tampa. $26.50. (813) 274-8286.

The worst band you will ever see You go see the Millionaires for the same reasons you rubberneck in traffic or look at the bug you've squished under the newspaper — you just have to peek, as three valley girls squeak and swear their way through unusual songs. At least the ladies address their critics head-on, acknowledging they're "no-talent, just lucky," "so annoying," and "totally ruining music." 6:30 p.m. Wednesday. Orpheum, 1902 N Republica De Cuba, Ybor City. $13-$15. (813) 248-9500.

Hallmark Day is ALMOST here If Friday (the 13th) doesn't put the fear in you, Saturday surely will. It's Valentine's Day. If you haven't made reservations for a romantic dinner, better do it now. Check out food critic Laura Reiley's guide to the top 100 restaurants in Tampa Bay at
