Without further delay, let us begin the show starting in Tulsa.
Friday and Saturday this week, the Expo Square will be the home to the USA BMX Grand National Pro Series Final. Come check out some of the best BMX racers, men and women of every age group, race to the finish. I’ve been there myself and I would highly recommend for the kids. It’s pretty exhilarating. You can learn more about this at usabmx.com
This Friday, one of Tulsa’s newest breweries, Cabin Boys Brewery, is having their VIP Grand Opening…and..what’s that? It’s already sold out? Literally as I was putting together this podcast, they sold out. It must be good! No worries — they’ll be open on Saturday from 11 am to 9 pm, no tickets required. Learn more at www.cabinboysbrewery.com.
To kick off the holiday season the right way this Friday, gather up the family and head over to Chandler Park for their “Lights On” Ceremony. See all of the holiday lights throughout the park, enjoy door prizes, sing-a-longs, refreshments, and more. The event will run from 6 to 10 pm.
This Sunday, experience some holiday magic with Glow On The Green at, where else, the Guthrie Green from 3 to 7 pm! There will be special musical performances, a local holiday market, themed food, drinks, maybe even a jolly fellow in a red suit and long beard. Learn more at www.guthriegreen.com.
Continuing the holiday spirit just around the corner will be a performance of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center. For show details, head over to www.tulsapac.org.
For a great brunch this Sunday, head over to the Sunday Funday Brunch Throwdown at Fuel 66 on 11th just east of Lewis. There you will find a variety of food trucks, live music, and much more. Brunch kicks off at 11 and you can learn more at www.fuel66ok.com.

Heading down to OKC this weekend, I hope you’re in the mood for some basketball because Friday night has it. Watch OKC Blue face off against the Erie Bayhawks at the Cox Convention Center or you can see OKC Thunder face the Detroit Pistons at the Chesapeake Energy Arena.
Since the shopping season has begun, why not buy your loved ones some unique, handcrafted goods from local companies? Doing so in Oklahoma City is a breeze at this Saturday’s Deluxe Winter Market at Leadership Square. Over 100 local artists will be featuring their wares at this unique marketplace. Featuring goods ranging from clothing to art, home decor, accessories, it will be easy to find one-of-a-kind gifts for your family. Learn more about this event at www.deluxeok.net.
For some music this weekend, electronica fans delight as the Crystal Method will be Tower Theater on Friday. Jazz and blues fans will get their fill this Saturday with the Deep Deuce Session happening in the Deep Deuce District.
