Our parade of late-night talk show hosts continues Monday in St. Petersburg with Craig Ferguson. The Scottish comedian first came to American attention in 1996 on The Drew Carey Show (playing Carey's boss, Mr. Wick). Since 2005 he has hosted The Late Late Show on CBS, where he has won a Peabody award for his March 2009 interview with Bishop Desmond Tutu. He has had an eclectic career as the author of several books, and roles in movies and on the stage. But when he's not pushing the boundaries of the TV talk show format, Ferguson hits the road. He's doing his standup show at 7:30 p.m. Monday at the Palladium, 253 Fifth Ave. N. Tickets $55-$85; (727) 791-7400. Ferguson's bay area visit follows Jimmy Fallon, who was at the sold-out Tampa Theatre in October; and in February, Jay Leno will be at the Capitol Theatre in Clearwater for a sold-out show.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The story begins with Yucatan shrimp.

    St. Petersburg Deputy Mayor Kanika Tomalin, pilot Mark Futch, Boca Grande, St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman, and author and businessman Randy Wayne White,  Sanibel, exit a Maule Super Rocket seaplane after taking a fight around Tampa Bay off the St. Petersburg waterfront, 6/28/17.  White and his business partners are in negotiations with the City of St. Petersburg to build a fourth Doc Ford's Rum Bar & Grille on the approach to the St. Petersburg Pier with a second event space on the pier according to White. The group met near Spa Beach after a ground breaking ceremony for the new pier. "We want to have our business open by the time the pier opens," said White. Other Dr. Ford restaurants are located on Sanibel, Captiva and Ft. Myers Beach. SCOTT KEELER   |   Times
