Hello friends and welcome to yet another edition of Weekend Plans in Tulsa — your commute-length podcast that keeps you in the know about events happening this and every weekend in Tulsa, Oklahoma. This episode will cover February 15th through the 18th in 2018. In order to pay for the fancy microphone that I’m talking into, I need to let you know that this podcast is brought to you by OakTree Staffing & Training in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Let’s just be honest here — job hunting is more work than the job you’re actually looking to get. Why not put some professional job hunters to work? I know what you’re thinking — “what kind of people would do such a thing?” OakTree, my friends. For over 20 years, OakTree Staffing & Training has been placing the qualified workers into amazing jobs and it might as well be you. In addition to staffing, OakTree is also a Microsoft Certified Learning Partner, which means we can make Microsoft training for your team not just a breeze, but a joy. For you additional information on staffing or training from OakTree, head on over to and tell them “Weekend Plans in Tulsa” sent you so we can keep the fancy microphone. Without further ado, let’s dive into the weekend.
