Wow, it's not even the weekend yet, and there's tons of stuff to do around T-Town today!
Philbrook Museum - 2727 S. Rockford Ave. It's 3rd Thursday and Facebook Fan Free Day today at the Philbrook, which means you not only get in free, but enjoy 3rd Thursday's "Design Decoded" - starting at 5:30 tonight, there's a design challenge (with prizes awarded!), cash bar, ad campaign, and informative lecture about the world of industrial design!
Holiday Open House - RiverWalk Crossing, Jenks. Starting tonight at 6pm and running through till Sunday, Main Street in Downtown Jenks will be transformed into the sights and sounds of the holiday season! Enjoy shopping and dining enhanced by live music and decorative lights. There will also be horse drawn carraige rides, Santa pictures, and more! Admission is free.
Oklahoma Ink - Harwelden Mansion at 2210 S. Main St. From 6-8pm you can do some holiday shopping while supporting local authors who will be on hand at the book fair with signed copies of their works. There will also be refreshments. The book fair is another great fundraiser put on by the Tulsa Press Club.
Latte Art Throw Down - Topeca Coffee, 115 W. 5th St. (Suite 169), Downtown. Who knew that creating Latte was an art, let alone, sport?! Wow, I think I need to "throw down" $5 to compete for some serious prize money! This sounds like fun!!! Registration gets under way at 6pm, and the 'throw down' officially starts at 7! To learn more about the art of latte, check out TashaDoesTulsa's great video!
The Tulsey Awards - Cain's Ballroom, starting at 7pm. This free 2nd annual event will recognize 10 movers and shakers in our community, and is the climax of the 2009 Global Entrepreneurship Week!
Make a Wish Party - Clubhouse Bar & Grill, 105th & Memorial (SpiritBank Event Center). Go dig up that gold jewelry you have collecting dust and turn it into helping make kids dreams come true. Tulsa Gold & Silver will be on hand from 7-9pm to collect your gold and give you the cash to donate to the Make a Wish Foundation.
Dinner Club Chili Cook-Off - 7-11pm. Are you a chili master? For a $2 entry fee, you can compete amongst the Dinner Club in their 2nd chili cook off! Even if you're not an expert, your recipe just might win, like mine did earlier in the spring - and I was just as shocked as you are, especially considering I didn't even have a stove or oven at the time, and had to use a hot plate!
Joe Momma's 1st Birthday Party - 112 S. Elgin Ave., Downtown. Head down to Joe Momma's from 9pm-2am tonight where you can show your support and yes, eat free cake too! Plus, there will be trivia at 9pm and live music by Ben Kilgore at 10, with prizes and give-aways all night!
New Moon Opening - in Tulsa area theaters, starting at midnight. For those of you Twighlight fanatics out there (and yes, apparently there are plenty of you!), if you haven't gotten your ticket for tonight's midnight showing yet, you might have to wait until 3am, as a lot of showings have already sold out! Don't worry about me, I haven't seen the first one yet, so you can have my seat!
Finally, before you head out tonight, check out Tulsa Restaurant Deals' Thursday night specials!
(My personal favorite regular Thursday night hangout is Full Moon on Cherry Street, can't beat their $3 burgers & fries! If you sit outside at the bar, tell my favorite bartender, Landon, I said hi!)
And "Th-Th-Th-Th-Th-... That's all, folks!" ('till tomorrow, that is!)
