Weekly-Weekday-What-To-Do (07.11-14.16)


The New 718 Boxster Brunch and Test Drive Event at Porsche of Tampa (July 16)

Resentful towards captivity. A statement never more truely spoken than when about the new 718 Boxster. Its unbridled confidence in the corners comes courtesy of its track-bred mid-engine layout. And its new 300hp turbocharged flat-four engine sends it from 0-60 in a mere 4.5 seconds. Light. Nimble. And with a majority of its weight resting squarely where higher powers have long intended it – the center- it squeezes every ounce of fun our of every inch of pavement. Porsche. There is no substitute. Be the first to test drive the Porsche 718 at the Porsche of Tampa Brunch & Test Drive event. 8:30am-1pm. Click HERE to RSVP. Porshce of Tampa, 103 East Fowler Avenue.

The Music of Strangers at Tampa Theatre (All Week)
The Music of Strangers is, more than anything, an opportunity for the musicians and artists of the Silk Road Ensemble to talk about their philosophy of music. That might sound dry. And “dry” might be a nice way of saying it sounds dull. But each of these artists come from traditions of music as rebellion and power and personal connection. Each of them are among the finest creative minds in their field. And philosophically, they share with the audience the way their music makes people happy and changes their world. Don’t think “classroom” – think “magic show.” Screens at 7:30pm. Tickets are $10 online. Tampa Theatre, 710 North Franklin Street.
