5 things to do under $5 Jan. 31-Feb. 6

1 Yoga Day Tampa Bay: The Suncoast Yoga Teachers Association is offering free or reduced-price classes on Saturday at a number of yoga studios in the Tampa Bay area, including the Lotus Pond, 6201 Lynn Road in Tampa; Yoga Village, 2760 Daniel St. in Clearwater; and Living Room Yoga, 1608 29th Ave. N in St. Petersburg. The idea is to promote yoga awareness and introduce local yoga teachers. To find a class, visit

2 Stargazing in the park: It will be a starry night at the Jay B. Starkey Wilderness Park on Saturday where telescopes will be set up for stargazers. Dress appropriately for this rugged park, located in Pasco County at 10500 Wilderness Park Blvd. in New Port Richey. It starts at 7 p.m. Saturday. Free.

3 St. Pete Shuffle: The family-friendly scene at the shuffleboard courts in downtown St. Petersburg gets a bonus this week with live music by the bands Spiller, the Stone Eagles and the Pretty Voices. It's all free from 7 to 11 p.m. Friday at the Mirror Lake St. Petersburg Shuffleboard Club, 559 Mirror Lake Drive N.

4 IHOP's National Pancake Day: You can get a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. at IHOP restaurants on Tuesday, and all they ask in return is that you make a donation to the Children's Miracle Network. There's a limit of one stack per person and it's only for dine-in customers. Over the years, this pancake campaign has raised more than $10 million to support children's hospitals. The goal this year is to raise $3 million more. See

5 Target Tuesday: It's the first Tuesday of the month, so that means you get free admission to the Glazer Children's Museum this Tuesday from 2 to 7 p.m. That's a break from the normal admission of $15 for adults, $9.50 for kids. Also, Clifford the Big Red Dog will make an appearance at 2:30, 4:30 and 6 p.m. at the museum in Tampa's Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, 110 W Gasparilla Plaza.
