Do This: The Weekend Top 10

Milestones, music, non-World Cup soccer, classics and final shows lure us off the couch.

Strap on your jetpacks — it's the last weekend for Return to the Forbidden Planet! An additional, final, final show has been added tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are selling fast for the remaining show dates for Straz/Jobsite's hit musical.

It's also the last weekend to see two other acclaimed performances: St. Petersburg Opera blesses West Side Story with its coterie of high-octane vocals at the Palladium this weekend, and The Burnt Part Boys finish its smokin' run at freeFall. 

Raise a pint to Dunedin Brewery. The brewhouse and music venue celebrates its adulthood this weekend with a new 18th Anniversary American Pilsner and a white IPA with hibiscus, which will be served with some of the venue's favorite bands.

Celebrating another milestone is music scene godfather Ronny Elliott, who's been rockin' for 50 years. Congratulate Ronny, and hear him play his great ballads and rockers tonight at Skipper's Smokehouse. Read Leilani Polk's interview with the local favorite here.

The Refinery's July 4th Weekend Celebration keeps trucking along with guest chef Matt Bolus of Nashville. On Sunday, you can “Heal the Hangover” with the Recovery Sunday Brunch 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. and a Pig Jam with Lance Howell of Big Shoals 5-8:30 p.m. 5137 N. Florida Ave., Tampa.

If you haven't have enough Fourth of July sweaty fun, barbecue and rocking out, then head to downtown St. Pete for the first ever 'Merica F*ck Yeah Block Party all day and evening Saturday. Rumor has it that a pool party will be featured, so bring/wear your swimsuits.
Cary Grant is back in a Hitchcockian chase for the next installment of Tampa Theatre's Summer Movie Classics. See the 1959 suspense thriller North by Northwest Sunday at 3 p.m.

World Cup fever has soccer dribbling its way a little further into the hearts and minds of our nation's sports lovers. Get in on the sensation locally with our own champs, the Tampa Bay Rowdies, who play the I-4 Derby home game against Orlando City Soccer Club Sunday at 6:30 p.m. at Al Lang Stadium.

Ella's is a popular Tampa hangout on Sundays, where live music can be enjoyed with the restaurant's Sunday soul food menu and famous Blood Marys. This week, catch the exotica jazz sounds of Stolen Idols and pick up a copy of the band's sultry CD, Moonlight Offerings

Literary group Keep St. Pete Lit gives us words with friends in the flesh, not in a cellphone app. Attend Get Lit tonight for a convivial good time with fellow book lovers!
