Heavens to Burgatroid! 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.

Speaking of holiday weekend outdoor fun, check our Memorial Day Weekend event guide for info on today's Margarita Festival and more. 

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 Saturday night.

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 for info on these shows and more.
