What You're Doing Tonight: May 12

How's it going to be tonight?  How about Semi-Charmed?

Yup, fans of '90s pop-rock rejoice!  Third Eye Blind is in the Nutmeg State tonight.  Stephan Jenkins, and the rest of his band-mates are playing at the Palace Theater in Stamford.

Besides being one of the '90s biggest bands, selling 8 million albums, Third Eye Blind has made it's share of tabloid headlines as well.  Jenkins has been linked to the likes of Charlize Theron and Vanessa Carleton, and was named to People's 50 Most Beautiful People (isn't he just dreamy?). 

The band is back on the road, working on their first studio album in five years.  Tonight's show, which starts at 7:30, promises some of their new material along with plenty of your old favorites.  Tickets for the show are $39.50.

Not in the mood for '90s classics?  How about a little classical instead?

Il Divo, the "Backstreet Boys" of operatic pop is playing tonight at Mohegan Sun.  Little known fact, Il Divo was created by the one and only Simon Cowell (he won't be at the show however, he's busy on Tuesday nights).

The show starts at 7:30, and tickets can be yours for $56-$97.

How 'bout a little food on your Tuesday night?

Mulberry Street Pizza in Manchester (known for their unique pizzas named after famous movies and TV shows) is teaming up with Thomas Hooker Brewing Co. for a one-of-a-kind tasting dinner.  Enjoy delicious treats like crab cakes, pulled pork even a white and dark chocolate Napoleon, all paired with Thomas Hooker beers. 

It's just $35, plus tax.  Call 860-645-8646.

You know what?  Everything I've told you about is inside.  As my Mom would say, "Get out of the house!"

It's springtime, and that means baseball.  The New Britain Rock Cats are home against cross-state rival Connecticut Defenders.  The Defenders are on their way out of Connecticut after this season, so there aren't many chances left to see the teams play each other.  Plus, you can enjoy all the thrills and treats of a big-league game, for decidedly not big-league prices. 

First pitch is 6:35 p.m.  Unless, of course, it rains.  Tickets start at just $5 -- now how can you beat that?
