1 Friday Fun Night Shuffleboard: A new initiative from the Clearwater Shuffleboard Club offers free shuffleboard games to all every Friday night. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. to check out cues and discs and get some basic instructions. Play begins at 7. The club has 52 courts, half of which are indoors. Free. Runs through April 5. 6:30-10 p.m. 1020 Calumet St., Clearwater.
2 Wolf-Face: Nothing says Christmas like a quartet of guttural punks in werewolf masks and Teen Wolf banana hammocks. That makes Saturday a good time to see Wolf-Face in a decidedly unusual venue, the VFW Post 39, 2599 Central Ave., St. Petersburg. If anything could upstage such lupine rascality, it might be power-pop outfit Tres Bien, playing a rare reunion gig a decade-plus after their national TV debut on Fox's The Next Great American Band. Orlando riot grrlsWet Nurse bring even more garage grit to the night. 8 p.m. Saturday. $5 cash at the door.
3 Dunedin Christmas golf cart parades: One of the more charming holiday traditions, Dunedin has two parades of elaborately decorated golf carts. The North Dunedin Neighborhood Parade ships off at 8 p.m. Friday from the Stirling Links Driving Range, 620 Palm Blvd. They will tour though neighborhoods around the Fairways Estates area and end at the Dunedin Golf Course Club House. At 8 p.m. Saturday, the South Dunedin Neighborhood Parade gets rolling at 8 p.m. at VFW Post 2550, 360 Douglas Ave. Both are free for spectators. If you'd like to join the parade in your own cart, see dunedingoescarting.com.
4 Third Friday Music Series: Main Street in Safety Harbor will be closed to traffic starting at 6 p.m. Friday for a block party of shopping, dining and entertainment for the whole family. Free.
5 Polar Express: To kick off winter break for students, Clearwater's Station Square Park is hosting a free movie night.
