Hello, T-Town friends and welcome to another episode of Weekend Plans in Tulsa — your commute-length or possibly workout-length podcast that helps you figure out how to make the most of your weekend in, you guessed it, Tulsa. In this episode, we’ll be covering February 22nd through the 25th, 2018.
Before we’re off to the races, I just have to keep the podcast lights on by letting you know that this podcast is brought to you by none other than OakTree Staffing & Training in Tulsa, Oklahoma. What does OakTree do? They help people land awesome jobs and awesome Microsoft training. Job hunting is horrible and I don’t know of anyone who would disagree. Why not leave it to someone else? With help from one of OakTree’s career professionals, you can get a foot in the door on an amazing new position. What if you don’t quite have the skills to pay the bills? OakTree can also help with that. You can take Microsoft training online from absolutely anywhere, anytime of day or night, and if your company is Microsoft customer, there’s a good chance that the training could end up being free to you. To search through our awesome job board or shop for the best Microsoft training around, head on over to oaktreestaffing.com and tell them Weekend Plans sent ya!
Ok, let’s get make some plans, starting with events taking place all weekend long!
This event bears repeating — but also because it’s still going on! Are you a fan of The Ramones? I named my cat “Ramone” so you know the answer there. If you’re like me, you’re not going to want to miss the stage performance of “Four Chords and a Gun” — Written by The Big Bang Theory actor John Ross Bowie, this new play is the story of The Ramones working on their fifth album, The End of the Century, with Phil Spector from 1978-80. This play is running through the 25th at the Tulsa PAC – Liddy Doenges Theatre running through the 25th with more details and ticket information at http://www.tulsaprojecttheatre.com
Also continuing into this weekend: Don’t miss the words of Mark Twain come to life on stage with the production of “Tom Sawyer, Detective” running Friday through the 25th as well. Adapted from the Tom Sawyer sequel, Tom Sawyer attempts to solve a mysterious murder. This will be taking place at the Spotlight Theatre with more information at http://spotlighttheatre.org/
The puck is getting dropped this weekend at the BOK Center as the Tulsa Oilers face off against the Colorado Eagles and on Friday & Saturday night. Make sure you don’t miss it by visiting https://tulsaoilers.com/
Another rare treat this weekend is the Akdar Shrine Circus happening all weekend at Expo Square. From trapeze artists, amazing juggling feats, ferocious tigers, tremendous elephants, and yes…clowns…bring out the kiddos to partake in this larger-than-life circus experience. Log on to http://akdarshrine.org/shrine-circus/ for ticket and show information.
Are the kids afraid of clowns? That’s understandable, I am too. If so, take them to Discover the Dinosaurs at the Cox Business Center this weekend. Get up close to amazingly realistic animatronic dinosaurs and bring out your inner paleontologist with 10 different exhibits. Saturday and Sunday, it will be two days of everything dinosaurs.
