What to do
Dali'licious Dinner Salvador Dali was a foodie. This gave Gulfport's Elements Global Cuisine chefs and owners Catherine and Jose Luis Pawelek a unique idea: Incorporate some of the great artist's food preferences and artwork into a five-course dinner, pair it with some great Mediterranean wines and donate a percentage of the proceeds to "Get Rescued ... in Gulfport", a non-profit that benefits animal-rescue groups. 6:30 p.m. Elements Global Cuisine, 3121 Beach Blvd., Gulfport. $59. Limited seating. (727) 343-9894. elementsglobalcuisine.com.

Margaret Cho's Beautiful Tour Comedian, actress and all-around funny gal Margaret Cho is out on her new tour, Beautiful. Cho explores the meaning of beauty, and societal expectations of beauty.
