Two people have paid "significant" deposits to make a weeklong circumlunar flight aboard an automated Dragon, launched by Falcon Heavy, next year: http://www.spacex.com/news/2017/02/27/spacex-send-privately-crewed-dragon-spacecraft-beyond-moon-next-year

Falcon Heavy first flight scheduled for late summer.  Side boosters will be pre-flown.  All 3 boosters will be recovered.  Side boosters return to Kennedy while core booster lands on drone ship.  Musk says flight will be high risk and will not carry a customer payload.  There is a possibility that an attempt will be made to also bring back the 2nd stage although it would be considered a low probability of success.
