1 Carousel No. 5 with Bill Yates: Inspired by an old-fashioned slide show, Green Bench Brewing Co. hosts the fifth installment of this series that gives photographers a wall and a forum to present their work. Special guest Bill Yates will talk about his series from Tampa's Sweetheart Roller Skating Rink, which sat dormant for nearly 40 years until recently when Yates scanned the images and began sharing the work with the public. The compelling images are currently in an exhibition at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans that continues through Jan. 17. Yates comes to St. Petersburg on Dec. 2 at 7 p.m. for a talk at Green Bench, 1133 First Ave. N, St. Petersburg. Seating is limited. Bring blankets or beach chairs.

The couple will read from their book, subtitled "Nine Not Very Golden Rules for Children Who Like to Write Poetry" at Inkwood Books, 216 S Armenia Ave., Tampa at 4 p.m. Saturday. (813) 253-2638.

3 Sunday Bicycle Rides: Make up for all those Thanksgiving calories. Join the Tampa Bay Sunday Bicyclers for a group bike ride in the shadow of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge on Sunday.

  5. Bar review: Les Partners Lounge goes old-school in Clearwater

    Bars & Spirits

    There are some local places that I'm shocked aren't more well known, and I think that's the result of a general aversion to stepping out of one's comfort zone. I make regular concerted efforts to step outside of mine, which often leads me to strange and rewarding drinking establishments.

    Les Partners Lounge is an old-school, smoker-friendly cocktail lounge and live music venue tucked away in a nondescript shopping plaza in Island Estates.
