Happy Friday the 13th, T-Town!

But who cares if a black cat should cross your path??  Mine does all the time! :)
So throw aside any superstitions and check out all that's going on this weekend!

Hafli - St. Antony Orthodox Church, 2646 E. Sixth St. The Church's annual Lebanese Gourmet Dinner & Bake Sale will feature a chicken dinner (for only $12.50 per person!), deli items for sale, and of course, lots and lots of baked goods!  There will also be church tours, and the bookstore will be open.  Food item donations for the neighborhood food bank will be welcome. This is Tulsa's largest Lebanese food festival, so I anticipate crowds of mouth-watering folks (like myself!) going to check this out!  YUM!
Bead Renaissance Show - Expo Square.  This free show will feature thousands of wholesale and retail beads! For bead enthusiasts and jewelry makers everywhere!!

Tulsa Oilers Ladies Night - BOK Center, 7:35 pm.  Ladies, this is our night: Admission is only $7, plus $2 Beer/Sodas, free massages, free week long Gold's Gym memberships, and $10 Match Play to River Spirit Casino!  If only I wasn't going to see Ghostland, this is where I'd be spending Friday evening, rooting on my favorite hockey team!!
Ghostland Observatory - Cain's Ballroom, 423 N. Main St., 8pm.  Thanks to my favorite bartender, Landon, I became a fan of Ghostland months ago, and heard about how great they are in concert!  Tickets are $29 at the door, if you haven't already gotten yours in advance!  I'm trying to think how to describe this band...electronic meets rock meets funk?? any case, they are unique and awesome, and you should hear them for yourselves!  See you at the show!!

Friday & Saturday:
Women's Professional Rodeo Association - Expo Square. Tickets are $15 for each night, starting at 7pm.   Friday night enjoy a free concert with Thomas Martinez; watch the excitement as riders compete for $3 million in prize money!

McNellie's Pub Run - 401 E. 1st St., Downtown. Ahh, yes, what goes down better after a run than beer?  Well, register starting at noon for the 3pm run (4 mile or 1 mile fun run) through the historic Brady & Blue Dome Districts.  Participants receive a t-shirt and 2 free beers (for those aged 21 and over, of course)!  Plus there will be entertainment and awards!  And what is this??  Anyone who chugs down 3 Guiness pints during the run and beats down the competition wins a $300 house account at McNellie's?!?!  And I thought those coveted mugs were impossible to get!!!
"Symphony Safari" - Tulsa Zoo, 2-4pm.  The Tulsa Symphony Orchestra will be performing at the Zoo's new indoor venue, the Chapman Event Lodge, and afterwards, you'll get the chance to meet the musicians and learn about instruments! And thanks to Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Oklahoma, any child or "Little" is admitted free with paid adult admission!
Second Saturday - Philbrook Museum, 10:30am-4pm.  Once again, it's free admission this Saturday at the Philbrook!  Hopefully the weather will be perfect to enjoy traversing the gardens and taking in the splendor that is fall.  And if it's not, you can still take in all of the interesting exhibits inside, not to mention activities for the kids!
Fresh Roast Gift Expo - 81st & Harvard, 2-7pm. The local Tulsa Craft Mafia and Fresh Roast Coffee House are kicking off their holiday shopping event featuring handmade gifts, craft demos, live music, and special locally roasted coffee blend!
Literati Indie Book Fair - McBirney Mansion, 1414 S. Galveston, 11am-5pm, free. This giant book fair at the historic McBirney Mansion will feature local & regional authors from all over the state, in every genre!  Not to be missed!
A Nashville Night with Ladd Smith - Tidal School Vineyards, Drumright. Tickets for the dinner & concert are only $24.95 (or if you were lucky and saw their Facebook special, you could have gotten TWO tickets for $24.95!). The Southern Fried Dinner starts at 5:30pm, and there will be samplings of TSV's new releases, tours, and the concert starting at 7pm!

Saturday and Sunday:
Antique Glass & Pottery Show & Sale - Tulsa Convention Center Exhibit Hall A, 100 Civic Center. Featuring depression glass, pottery, linens, postcards, costume jewelry and collectibles.  Admission is $3.50 (good for both days), and there will be door prizes as well!

And there you have just a small smattering of events going on this weekend!  I'm still going to try & fit in one last 'fall scenic drive' while there's still leaves on the trees!  Hope everyone has a GREAT weekend, be safe, and see you around T-Town!!  :)
