Get a taste of Tarpon Springs

The Taste of Tarpon is this weekend, but don't head to the Sponge Docks where the festival has been held the past four years. Because of a beautification project at the Sponge Docks, this year's celebration will be at Craig Park on Spring Boulevard. Crafts, live entertainment and, of course, food will be plentiful from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday. Greek dancers will perform at 3:30 p.m. Saturday and 3:45 and 4:45 p.m. Sunday. The event is sponsored by the Sponge Docks Merchants Association. Admission is free. No coolers allowed. Call 944-2468.

Folk duo to perform on Tarpon stage

Guitarist Walter Parks and cellist Stephanie Winters, also known as the Nudes (don't worry, they're completely clothed during concerts), will perform at 8 p.m. Saturday at Tarpon Springs Performing Arts Center, 324 Pine St. Florida-born Parks and New York native Winters met in 1991. They have been touring the country since 1993. Their name was inspired by classic paintings and sculptures of nudes. It also seems to reflect the style of their music, which is stripped down to the essentials: two voices, two acoustic instruments. Tickets are $10. Call 942-5605.

Community theater presents western melodrama

The West Coast Players will present a light-hearted look at the Old West in its production of The Face on the Barroom Floor. The play is about a villain who tries to make off with the inheritance left to an aspiring singer by an old prospector. Performances are at 8 p.m. today through Sunday and May 8 and 9 at Dunedin Community Center, 903 Michigan Blvd. A matinee show will be at 2 p.m. May 10. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for seniors and students. Call 937-0978.
