Troubador Annie Wenz drops into town for a special concert sponsored by the Folk Club of South Florida at 8:00 tonight at Luna Star Cafe (775 NE 125th St., North Miami). Dividing her time between Maine, Massachusetts, and Costa Rica, the singer-songwriter plays guitar, piano, percussion, and Native American flute, mixing contemporary acoustic sounds with multicultural rhythms. Her songs touch on varied experiences taken from her own life, such as running a 100-mile relay race with Penobscott Indian women, climbing an erupting volcano, and working as an obstetrical nurse in Kentucky. Admission is seven dollars. Call 305-892-8522. (NK)

Bring a lunch and picnic by the bay after you check out the huge variety of exotic plants at the Kampong. That is David Fairchild's (the founder of Fairchild Tropical Garden) Indonesian-inspired house, which is rarely open to the public. Fruit and Spice Park (24801 SW 187th Ave., Homestead) takes you on the Kampong Tour from 9:00 a.m. to noon today. Admission is $15. Space is limited. Call 305-247-5727 for reservations. (NK)

Reading aloud. You hated doing it in grade school, but you're happy to do it now that you're all grown up. Sounds like you're the perfect candidate for the Favorite Poem Project taking place at 8:00 p.m. at Coral Gables Congregational Church (3010 De Soto Blvd., Coral Gables). U.S. poet laureate Robert Pinsky is the brains behind this event as well as the host. He wants participants to read a favorite poem and informally state why the specific work is so special to them. By the year 2000, Pinsky aims to put together an audio and video archive of Americans reading their preferred poems. Winners will be picked from e-mails and letters sent to Pinsky at the Library of Congress. Attendees at tonight's presentation are welcome to apply for inclusion. Admission is free. Call 305-919-5954. (
