Heavens to Burg
atroid! Downtown St. Pete is jam-packed with fun new events Saturday night.
That's not to say Tampa doesn't have as much to do, too.
With all the arts and culture happenings and Memorial Day Weekend events going on, it's to be hectic out there. Drive safely!
The Oleson Gallery will be throwing its biggest art show yet to welcome a brand new 7,000-square-foot multi-purpose, multi-level gallery space known as Bloom
with a grand opening party featuring bands, new works on display and more.
Or, check out the art and music show between visits to Burgatory
live music bash, also in downtown St. Pete, one of the many Memorial Day Weekend parties going down in Tampa Bay. Click here for a Burgatory schedule

Also in Tampa, a new breed of loquacious roughhousing makes its way from Peru to Cafe Hey. Join CL Contributor David Z. Morris and other talented local scribes for a round of Lucha Libro
The theater scene slows down around this time, but this season it's still kicking and will have an audible pulse througout the summer. Folks, there's nothing like live theater. So put your tablets down. Leave the living room and go see Jobsite Theater's production Zach Braff's dramed, All New People
at the Straz Center's Shimberg Playhouse, or, for something more out there, Alice Ferrulo's Red As In Tooth and Claw
at downtown St. Pete's Studio@620. If you're going to be in the O-Town area this weekend, the Orlando Fringe Festival
is winding down, offering the best in its most adventurous performing arts.
On Sunday, a new Seminole Heights tradition kicks off with the Summer Art Market
at Southern Brewing.
Two must-see comedians headline clubs this week: the blunt and bodacious Lynne Koplitz
(pictured, right) and the large-and-in-charge Lavell Crawford
. Read Michael Murillo's Laugh Tract
