Top things to do in Tampa Bay for March 19

There's a cozy comfort in finding an episode of Whose Line Is it Anyway? on cable. You're in for a hilarious romp, but kids and easily offended puppies can stay in the room. Find out how the improv unfolds live when Whose Line alums Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood's Two Man Group Tour comes to the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg on Sunday. The comics will take ideas (and people) from the audience to invent original sketches. These days, Mochrie and Sherwood are on Gameshow Network with Drew Carey's Improv-a-Ganza. $29.50-$47.50. (727) 892-5767. themahaffey.com.

  3. Restaurant review: Food and beer pair nicely at the Eatery at Brew Bus Terminal and Brewery

    Food & Dining

    TAMPA - Tampa Bay's craft beer scene is perennially in flux. New breweries open, others close or get scooped up by bigger breweries, some reinvent themselves so they can sell beer off site, and still others build on kitchens and add food to give enthusiasts another reason to sit tight.

    A Passion of the Heights hibiscus wheat ale is displayed at The Brew Bus in Tampa, Fla., on Wednesday, Jul 19, 2017.  The Brew Bus Terminal, which houses a microbrewery and tasting room and serves as a hub for bus tours to local breweries, has opened an on-site kitchen called the Eatery. With the opening of the new casual dining concept, the brewery joins the ranks of microbreweries across the country that have asked that question: "What goes with beer? Hey, how about food?"
