Things to do Thursday, Sept. 11


Ladies Night Out on Corey: Ladies, this one is for you. Stroll through quaint Corey Avenue in St. Pete Beach as shops and restaurants host wine and food tastings, door prizes, music and raffles. Then stop by the Beach Theatre at 8 p.m. to live out your inner Audrey Hepburn during a free showing of Charade, the 1963 classic starring Hepburn and Cary Grant. Portions of the proceeds benefit CASA, Community Action Stops Abuse. 5-10 p.m. Downtown Corey area, St. Pete Beach. Free. (727) 366-2003.

Beauvilles CD Release Party: On their new disc Whispering Sin, restless and unpredictable singer-guitarist Shawn Beauville only furthers the idea that he's Tampa Bay's most intriguing frontman. His meaty chops (that applies to both his vocal range and his sideburns), candid lyrics, taste for scotch and Jack White-ish fashions pair with heavy guitars and hints of psychedelia for a dark yet dapper ride. 9 p.m.-1 a.m. Crowbar, 1812 N 17th St., Ybor City. $10, includes a copy of the new album. (813) 241-8600.

Two books for tiny tots: It's book time at Brooker Creek and Weedon Island. This program, presented twice each month, is designed to introduce children ages 3-5 to the wonders of the natural world. This week's featured book at Brooker Creek is Hungry Hoppers: Grasshoppers in Your Backyard by Nancy Loewen, a fun and lighthearted look at grasshoppers and athletic arthropods (Those are animals with segmented bodies, for you nonscientist types). The program also includes a craft, game or other hands-on activity related to the story. (727) 453-6800. At Weedon Island it's Danny & Daisy: A Tale of a Dolphin Duo by Suzanne Tate, where kids will learn about dolphins, including biology, ecology, research and rehabilitation. Both events are free, but call ahead for space availability. 10:30-11:15 a.m. Environmental Education Center at Brooker Creek Preserve, 3940 Keystone Road, Tarpon Springs. Cultural and Natural History Center at Weedon Island Preserve, 1800 Weedon Drive NE, St. Petersburg. (727) 453-6500.

The 2008 Hero Awards, 8 p.m., MNT: If you actually know where to find My Network TV on your dial, you probably already know about this show honoring people for acts of charity and philanthropy. That it features luminaries such as Bo Bice, James Ingram, Rick Springfield, Bryant Gumbel, Roger Moore and Erik Estrada should clue you in to the quality.

102 Minutes That Changed America, 9 p.m., History: It's the seventh anniversary of the attacks, so if you need to be reminded how terrible they were, watch this recount, which uses footage from more than 100 sources to recreate the time line.

MTV's Top Pop Group, 9 p.m., MTV (series premiere): Another stupid contest to find musicians who can't get discovered any other way. The joke's on them, though, since MTV will never actually play their videos.
