SEASON FINALE Greenleaf, 10 p.m., OWN. This has been filled with scandalous secrets and lies, so we're braced for even more drama as the show closes out its first season tonight. Will Grace (Merle Dandridge) pay a heavy price for bringing shame to her family's megachurch?

  5. Bar review: Les Partners Lounge goes old-school in Clearwater

    Bars & Spirits

    There are some local places that I'm shocked aren't more well known, and I think that's the result of a general aversion to stepping out of one's comfort zone. I make regular concerted efforts to step outside of mine, which often leads me to strange and rewarding drinking establishments.

    Les Partners Lounge is an old-school, smoker-friendly cocktail lounge and live music venue tucked away in a nondescript shopping plaza in Island Estates.
