Things to do in Tampa Bay for March 3

Bay Area Renaissance Festival: Highland Fling: Say huzzah to the wizards, warriors and commoners who populate this replica of a 16th century village featuring Highland games, a Celtic village, free beer tasting, Highland dancers, a meatball eating contest and a "Men in Kilts" competition.

Beer Pairing Brunch: If you like your beer with a touch of class, head to the Vinoy for this brunch offering a long classic-style buffet, beer infusions, cocktails and multiple beer pairing stations. It starts at noon at the Renaissance Vinoy Resort & Golf Club, 501 Fifth Ave. NE, St. Petersburg. $59.95. (727) 894-1000.

Excision: The Canadian dubstep artist should bring plenty of noise to this show starting at 9 p.m. at Ritz Ybor, 1503 E Seventh Ave., Tampa. $25. (813) 247-2555.

The Piano Lesson: Still haven't seen the show? Today is your last chance to catch August Wilson's play about a struggle over a family heirloom. See it at 3 p.m. at American Stage, 163 Third St. N, St. Petersburg. $39. (727) 823-7529.


MINISERIES PREMIERE The Bible, 8 p.m., History If it sounds a little weird that a channel purportedly about history is featuring a dramatic miniseries of Bible parables narrated by Keith David, just relax. It's not like Big Rig Bounty Hunters or Pawn Stars are really academic fact-finding missions, either.
