To do Friday: Cassie Taylor and "Real Housewife" Teresa Giudice


Cassie Taylor: Otis Taylor's bluesy daughter, the 26-year-old singer from Chicago, has remained busy cultivating a solo career as well as a new album, "Out of My Mind," a slow-simmering release filled with sass and many references to cars, bars and babes. The single "Ol' Mama Dean" channels a more-sensual Aretha, while the music video for "That's My Man" shows the redheaded Taylor belting Delta blues from the hood of a muscle car. Taylor will perform with Palm Beach rootsmakers the Nouveaux Honkies 9 p.m. Friday at the Bamboo Room (25 S J. St.) in Lake Worth. $12-$15. 561-585-2583 or Valys


Teresa Giudice: The "Real Housewives of New Jersey" reality star will sign copies of her new cookbook at the Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale. Giudice's choice of literary genre may seem ill-fitting, considering she's known for flipping over a table on the show, but "Fabulicious! On the Grill: Teresa's Smoking Hot Backyard Recipes" is her fourth title. The author will participate in a Q&A session at 7 p.m. Books can be purchased before the event by calling 954-262-0255 or emailing — Maria Murriel
