If you haven't been outside yet today, get going!!

First up, all you beer lovers head on over to the Blue Dome Diner, at 311 E. 2nd St., tonight from 6-10pm, for the "First Draft, Fifth Edition".  And what the heck is this cool sounding event all about?  More than 40 varieties of craftbrew, wine, and food will be featured!  Tickets are $35 each, or grab a buddy and save $5!  Proceeds benefit the Tulsa Press Club Foundation.  Call (918) 583-7787 for tickets & more info.

High Gravity Homebrewing & Winemaking Supplies - If after last night's First Draft you've got a hunkering to try your hand at making your own brewski, why not stop over at High Gravity where members of the Homebrew Club will be giving demonstrations and how-tos;  there will be pizza and discounts available!
Mopars At The Park - Tulsa Raceway Park.
