See, that wasn’t too bad, right? I mean, you’re still here. Let’s talk about the weekend of January 25th through the 28th in Tulsa, Oklahoma — starting with events taking place all weekend long.
For a trip to the Tulsa PAC, enjoy “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder” — a show that won a Tony in 2014 for Best Musical. Reviewers say they’ve never laughed harder in a Broadway musical before. If you’re more in a ballet mood, the Aspen Sante Fe Ballet will be performing this weekend at the PAC as well. For more information on either of these shows, head over to http://www.tulsapac.com
From ballet slippers to boxing gloves, also happening throughout this weekend is the Oklahoma Golden Gloves State Championship at the Greenwood Cultural Center. Male and female amateur boxers ranging from ages 17 to 40 from all over Oklahoma will duke it out in each weight division. Winners will advance to the regional tournament.

For green thumbs and wannabes in Tulsa, the Green Country Home & Garden Show will be taking place this weekend at the Tulsa Fairgrounds. You can learn all about the show at http://www.coxradiotulsa.com/
For chamber music fans, I was going to tell you all about Fridays In The Loft with at the Fly Loft presented by the Tulsa Symphony, but they sold out! It must be good. Find out details on upcoming concerts at https://tulsasymphony.org.
Moving on, this Saturday, the Society of Women Engineers will be holding a hands-on look-and-learn at the Renaissance Hotel & Convention Center. Girls in grades 6 through 8th will work with members of the organization on projects, make new friends, and ask questions of real-life woman engineers. For additional details, visit http://swe.org.
While the ladies on figuring out how to engineer the future, the fellas can watch it be torn apart at the Tulsa Winter Nationals Monster Truck Showdown happening Saturday at Tulsa Expo Square. I mean, ladies can attend this one too, but…well…nevermind. You can learn all about it at http://www.exposquare.com/
This Sunday afternoon is a real treat for music lovers as they experience Ensemble 4.1 — a very unique German quintet c omprised of piano, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and horn players playing what can be called the “B-sides” of Mozart, Beethoven, and many others. The concert will be happening at 3pm at the Tulsa PAC. Additional information is available at http://www.tulsapac.com.
