Howdy friends and welcome to another episode of Weekend Plans in Tulsa — your walk-the-dog length podcast that keeps you in the know about some great events happening every weekend in beautiful Tulsa, OK.
Before we get started, I just need to pay some bills really fast by letting you know all about MOC On-Demand from OakTree Staffing & Training. MOC — M-O-C, stands for “Microsoft Official Courses” On-Demand. If your team is needing to brush up on their Microsoft software skills — from Azure to Exchange, Office 365, SharePoint, SQL Server, System Center, Visual Studio, Windows Server, you name it — you can take them all online through OakTree at a *significantly* discounted rate. Each course is self-paced that you can take anytime, day or night, and the best part is that if your organization is a Microsoft customer, there’s a good chance that these classes may be free for your team. To learn more about this visit http://bit.ly/mocondemand — that’s MOC On-Demand all as one word. The longer version is https://www.oaktreestaffing.com/microsoft-courses-online-catalog/ or you can visit https://www.oaktreestaffing.com/blog for a transcript of this podcast that contains all the events and links in this podcast. Ok, now that the bills are paid, let’s discuss events!
Happening all weekend long, it’s hockey weekend at the BOK Event Center as the Tulsa Oilers will face off against Quad City three different times: Friday and Saturday night at 7:05pm or Sunday at 4:05pm. For more info, head over to http://tulsaoilers.com/ for more.
This Friday, the Philbrook Museum is celebrating the end of the world! Well, almost. On March 23, 1989 a large asteroid missed the Earth by just 500,000 miles. To commemorate the occasion, Philbrook willbe showing the blockbuster movie “Armageddon” — you know, the one with the Aerosmith track that got burned into our brains for a summer? The evening will also include a Vernal Equinox Garden Tour, and more surprises. Visit https://philbrook.org/ for event details.
Also on Friday, Travel expert and Emmy-winning television host Rudy Maxa will share stories from great destinations around the world. This will happen at the Tulsa PAC – Chapman Music Hall with more info at http://tulsapac.com/.
On Saturday, get ready for futbol season in Tulsa! By “futbol”, I mean “soccer” as the Roughnecks vs Real Monarchs. This is the Roughnecks’ first home game of the 2018 season. Before the game will be a parade and activities outside ONEOK Field with a fireworks show afterward. You can learn all about it and get your tickets at http://www.roughnecksfc.com
Continuing on Saturday is Classics V – Mahler’s Symphony No. 4
This is the final Classics Series concert of the 2017-2018 season. Daniel Hege will lead the Tulsa Symphony in John Adams’ Chairman Dances and Edward Elgar’s In the South (Alassio). Also, Sarah Coburn will perform as featured soprano soloist for Mahler’s Symphony No. 4.

Lastly on Saturday is something I’ve never heard of before, but sounds awesome: an Adult Easter Egg Hunt.
NOT just for kids anymore, I guess. Chandler Park will host its first Adult Easter Egg Hunt, with special prizes. The event is BYOB, and there will also be lawn games, concessions, and food trucks. Learn how to get hunting at http://facebook.com/chandlerparktulsa
