Ringing in the first of October in Tulsa!

We had a great night out yesterday - first stop, our local Dinner Club, which we realized we hadn't been to in months! (due to the conflict with "Thirsty Thursdays" Drillers games!).  Usually held on Wednesdays or Thursdays at least once a month, there's always a food "theme" and then you bring food/drink based on that theme.  It's usually held at a member's house, and rotates.  With around 100 members currently, we haven't hosted it yet, mainly because we had been, until mid-summer, living in only 400 square feet, and I thought that maybe it just might be a tad cramped!  Now we're in an apartment twice the size, so there's more room...for parties!!!  :)
Anyway....tonight's theme was "Breakfast for Dinner" - there was everything from mimosas to waffles to, umm, cold pizza!! Always a fun time with the DCrs  :)
As the DC was held near the Fair, we surveyed that opening night expectedly was a little crowded, but everyone we saw was in great spirits.  We would have gone in, except we had a B52s concert we wanted to take in!
We didn't get there until a few minutes after the show started, but in time to hear some of their great hits: Love Shack, Rock Lobster, Private Idaho, Roam and some of their current stuff!  They looked and sounded great!! As I anticipated, the Mystic River Lounge was packed with fans, as well as the entire casino floor!  Fortunately they had TV screens showing the stage throughout the casino, allowing you to view the concert from your slot machine stool!
This was the first time I'd been in one of the area casinos since I moved to Tulsa, and while I didn't play, it was fun to walk around and take everything in, including the B-52s!  (I heard they dined at Lola's while they were here - awesome!!)  It had also been the first concert I'd been to in a long time!  So I definitely had a fun night!!!  I'm looking forward to checking out some of the other area casinos too, although I gotta say, I'm a little disappointed that the Hard Rock does not have a "Hard Rock Cafe", well as yet, anyway.  I hope they open one in the future, that was a favorite dining spot of mine in Orlando!
