Things to do planner: WWE Raw, Busch Gardens fireworks, Monty Python party


World Wrestling Entertainment fans have been buzzing about the great chemistry coming from John Cena's feud with A.J. Styles, if only because Styles is helping the former WWE champion bring out some of his best performances. So look for more of that when WWE Raw comes Monday to Amalie Arena, 401 Channelside Drive, Tampa. Cena, who has a home in Land O'Lakes, has been making big crossover points lately in self-deprecating comedic roles in the movie Trainwreck and new variety show Maya & Marty. WWE Raw will also bring Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, Bray Wyatt and the Wyatt Family, the Big Show, Chris Jericho, Kevin Owens and the WWE Divas. Card subject to change up until bell time. If you don't have tickets ($20-$115) for the 7:30 p.m. show, Raw will be live on the USA network starting at 8 p.m. (813) 301-2500.

FIREWORKS: Summer Nights at Busch Gardens

Friday kicks off Summer Nights at Busch Gardens, with nightly fireworks and extended hours on the weekends. And now that the Cobra's Curse coaster is open, you can find out what it's like to be in a spinning coaster in the dark. Summer Nights also brings back the Kinetix rock-fueled acrobatic show and DJ dancing. The park remains open until midnight every Friday and Saturday through Aug. 7. Included with regular daily admission: $99, $79 for ages 3-9. Busch Gardens, 3605 Bougainvillea Ave., Tampa. Toll-free 1-888-800-5447.

REEL FUN: Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Wear a costume to a sing-along celebration of the 40th anniversary of Monty Python and the Holy Grail at the Tampa Pitcher Show. The party at 10 p.m. Friday includes roaming characters, movie-themed trivia games and a costume contest with a Holy Grail awarded to the silliest knight. Learn new ways to insult your enemies ("Your mother was a hamster and your father smelled of elderberries!"). Just be sure you have a shrubbery handy to escape the wrath of the Knights Who Say Ni. Tickets are $8 at Tampa Pitcher Show, 14416 N Dale Mabry Highway, Tampa. (813) 963-0578.
