Plan your weekend

Beer

Halfway There Tampa Bay's craft-beer scene is too hot to celebrate just once a year. So a bunch of breweries are getting together Saturday in Ybor City for the Halfway There beer festival in anticipation of the official Tampa Bay Beer Week in March. Quench your thirst with taps from dozens of breweries both local and out-of-state from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Cuban Club, 2010 N Avenida Republica de Cuba. Admission is $50. Look for these local spots serving their brews: Cigar City Brewing, 7venth Sun Brewery, Rapp Brewing Co., Dunedin Brewery, Green Bench Brewing (a new brewery set to open soon in St. Petersburg) and more.

Music

Hunks on stage We've got a weekend of country hottie Jason Aldean and gossip-rag favorite John Mayer. The cowboy hat gives Aldean away as all country, with hits The Only Way I Know, Night Train and When She Says Baby. Show is Friday at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa. $25.50-$55.25. (813) 740-2446.

Floating funds

Tampa Bay Boat Show Check out hundreds of the latest boats and marine accessories, plus fishing seminars, boat rides and, best of all, a 15,000-gallon heated scuba-diving pool. It runs Friday through Sunday at the Tampa Convention Center. $12, 15 and younger free. (954) 441-3220.

Date Night

Hedwig and the Angry Inch It's been both a cult musical and a movie that tells the story of Hedwig Schmidt, a rock 'n' roll goddess who had a botched sex-change operation, with "an angry inch." She joins a glam-rock band (the Angry Inch), falls in love and struggles to find what makes her whole after a life seemingly split in half by cities, people and him/herself. The Jobsite production opens Friday at the David A. Straz Jr. Center for the Performing Arts. $28. (813) 229-7827.

Comedy

Rob Schneider An alum of Saturday Night Live and just about every Adam Sandler movie, he has said that his Grown Ups castmates prodded him to get back into stand-up. He's at the Improv in Tampa on Friday through Sunday. $27-$30. (813) 864-4000.

Take the kids

$5 Days The Glazer Children's Museum is celebrating three years by giving you a nice present: $5 admission for everyone and not just for one day. It runs Saturday through Sept. 30. That's a really good deal for the hands-on learning museum that caters to 2- to 10-year-olds. Normally admission is $15, $9.50 for kids, under 1 free. Heck, it's worth $5 just to slide down the fireman's pole. The museum is at 110 W Gasparilla Plaza, Tampa. (813) 443-3861.
