“Singing policeman” Daniel Rodriguez performs in St. Petersburg in 2012. This time he’ll sing in Sun City Center.

The St. Andrew Presbyterian Church fine arts concert series continues at 3 p.m. today with Daniel Rodriguez.

Rodriguez, an operatic tenor, came to prominence as New York's "singing policeman'' after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

He performed the national anthem at a number of events and drew critical praise for his rendition of God Bless America. He also routinely participates in operas and lends his services to charity events such as Foundation Fighting Blindness' Tampa Bay Dining in the Dark event last year.

The St. Andrew series continues Jan. 12 at 3 p.m. with Alfonso Lopez, violin and Michelle Tabor, piano. Lopez is the concertmaster of the Venezuelan Symphony Orchestra.

Tickets cost $10 and are available at the church reception desk or at the door the day of the show. For information, call the church, 1239 Del Webb Blvd. W, at (813) 634-1252.

    Bars & Spirits

    I've spent many evenings in St. Pete's Jannus Live courtyard, enjoying one of the best open-air venues in the Tampa Bay area. It's where I saw my first concert in Florida: Toadies, on the Rubberneck tour sometime in the mid '90s.

    The drinks at the Landing at Jannus in St. Petersburg are about as cheap as you’ll find at any other regular downtown bar, a nice surprise.
