Another action packed weekend of events in Tulsa!

now through Monday:   The Creek County Free Fair - to get you in the mood for the upcoming Tulsa State Fair, Creek County's features livestock, exhibits, rides (wrist bands are only $15 for unlimited rides!), free outdoor concerts, a kids' zone, food, and more!!

Friday:  Someone once told me shortly after I moved here that Tulsans love holding festivals, and that there would be something going on pretty much every weekend, and that has proved to be correct!  This weekend is no exception, with the 49th Annual Greek Holiday Fest.  Featuring lots of food and dancing, admission is only $2!  For the Greek in all of us!
For those stargazers out there, head on over to Jenks or Broken Arrow for the Astronomy Club of Tulsa's free "Sidewalk Astronomy"!
The now infamous and according to many, "the single best rock show of all time", Tulsa's own "Smunty Voje" will be performing at Jewel won't want to miss out on them at 10:30pm, as well as Jewel's Customer Appreciation Party featuring drink specials all night long!  Jewel will be closing its doors Saturday night to make way for Brookside's first & only rooftop patio bar!!  Get Smunty tonight!!!

Saturday:  Get an early and FREE start to Saturday's lineup!
Downtown Adventure Walk - 9-11am, a walking tour of Tulsa's architecture.  Pre-register by calling 596-1485.
Smithsonian Day - Free general admission to either the Philbrook, the Gilcrease, or the Tulsa Historical Society Museum! Can't beat that!!

Ok folks, who doesn't enjoy a great steak dinner, complete with salad, bread and baked potato, and accompanied by live music?  Even better, getting to choose your steak from among 50 teams competing for the title of best in our state?  I thought so!  Better hurry to purchase your ticket now for the Oklahoma Championship Steak Cook-Off , before they're sold out! Or for those grillmasters out there, join one of the teams!

It's all about the wine, people!!  Can you believe there are no less than three wine events today??  Drink up and be merry!!
Stone Bluff Cellars - starting at 7:30 am, they'll be holding a "grape harvest" (yes, think Lucille Ball, so dress accordingly!  I'm thinking that after all the stomping you'll get to sample some great wine!!)
Tidal School Vineyards "Calabash"  - I can almost taste it - fresh caught seafood served up with the best local wines and beers accompanied by live music.  Only $35 gives you all the fun you can imagine!!
Guns Wine & Roses - maybe a little more formal and romantic than the Calabash, and certainly in competition for the night's wine tastings, this is a little closer to home at the Tulsa Garden Center on Peoria.  For $75 (or $60 if you're a member) you can sample 150 wines, complete with hors d'oeurvres and desserts.  Sounds like a great date  ;)

Free (gotta love that word!) Concerts!
TCC  "Education Rocks" concert Sat. at Veterans Park from noon to 8pm, featuring great live music, food, kids area, and info on area colleges.
The Presidents of the United States of America will also be rockin' Tulsa at the Hard Rock - doors open at 8:30 pm, and seats are limited!
Be sure to also mark your calendar for another free concert coming Oct. 1st, 9pm at River Spirit Casino: The B-52s!!!

Sunday:  The STBC 6th Annual Car Show - from 5-7pm, hundreds of cars will be on display, from Dodge Vipers to Model Ts, music & food, best of all admission is free!  The South Tulsa Baptist Church will be accepting donations of non-perishable food items for their Ministry Center.

A look ahead at the upcoming week:
Tuesday, Sept. 29th:  The 3rd Annual Life by Chocolate - 5:30-9:00pm, gourmet chocolate sampling and silent auction to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society; tickets are $15 in advance/$20 at the door.  Call 918-430-5090 for more info. (RT Urban Tulsa Weekly)

Whew!!!  I'm done for now, time to get the weekend (& party) started!!!
See you around T-Town!!!  :)
