Things to do in Tampa Bay for the week of June 10

The dog whisperer: Also known as Cesar Millan, who has a new show, Leader of the Pack. He does a live tour that uses local shelter dogs to share secrets on how to get pooches — and their owners — to behave. See him Saturday at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa. Tickets start at $35.75. (813) 229-7827.

Treasures at the Hard Rock: This traveling memorabilia exhibit features some cool items: an eighth-grade yearbook from Kurt Cobain, Elvis Presley's custom-made karate gi uniform, John Lennon's iconic round glasses and Elton John's sequined "Uncle Sam" outfit. All are on display 24 hours a day at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Tampa starting Friday, through June 22. Free. (813) 627-7625.

Date Night

Jake Shimabukuro: The ukulele wiz has become a regular in the bay area, but he draws a crowd every time, blending jazz, rock, classical, traditional Hawaiian and folk. See Shimabukuro (pronounced she-ma-boo-koo-row) tonight at the Palladium Theater in St. Petersburg. $40-50. (727) 822-3590.

The Neighbourhood: New fans will come for the catchy single Sweater Weather but will stay for the band's brooding pop music, with programmed drums and ethereal vocals. Show is Wednesday at State Theatre in St. Petersburg. $12-$14. (727) 895-3045.

Kids and Family

Dive-In Movies: As long as the popcorn doesn't get soggy, float in the pool Friday evening at the St. Pete Beach Aquatic Center while you watch Shark Tale on the big screen. No outside food allowed, but snacks and glow jewelry will be for sale. Admission is $4. And BYOF (bring your own floatie).

Tampa Bay Rays: You can take your dog and your dad on Sunday — Father's Day — when the Rays play the Kansas City Royals at the Trop in St. Petersburg. It's Bark in the Park, with special seating in the tbt* Party Deck ($30 for you, pooch, Rays dog leash). Plus, kids get free Jeremy Hellickson headphones. After the game, which starts at 1:40 p.m., the kid-friendly Imagination Movers perform. (888) 326-7297.

Father's Day: Dad deserves a deal. Lots of places, including Lowry Park Zoo, the Florida Aquarium, the History Center and Dinosaur World, are offering free admission for dad on Sunday with one paid ticket. Go to tampabay.com/things-to-do for more Father's Day events.
