I almost felt like it was Black Friday! But, although it was crowded, it wasn't bad, there was still a LOT of stuff when I left around 1pm, and many shoppers there didn't even know about the sale! I definitely got my money's worth and then some! Gotta love Goodwill!
Now I'm off to get some more last minute Halloween shopping done before I come back and celebrate my cat Mischief's 4th birthday. Then I'm heading to the gym for a much needed workout, and since we unfortunately ended up missing Dinner Club, we still need to carve our pumpkin! Then the plan is to head to El Guapo's for their Halloween party! Be sure & check my updated Halloween guide for this weekend's main events, in addition to some stuff I have listed below!
Vincent Price Double Feature - Gardner's Used Books, 8:30pm. Start your Halloween weekend chills and thrills by going to this free movie night! They're also having a costume contest, so dress to kill!! (pun intended!)
Oklahoma Centennial Botanical Garden Open House - 10am-1pm. Even though it is Halloween, you might want to make room for the last Open House of the year. For those of you, like me, who aren't familiar with the Botanical Garden, check out their site! Currently in its first phase of construction, the Garden will be home to 60 acres of various themed gardens, a 7-acre kajem an amphitheater, visitor center, observation tower, and much more, while another 100 acres of ancient forest and prairie being preserved. Located in the Osage Hills just northwest of Downtown, this weekend's free Open House will feature a snake curator, and 1.5 mile walking trail through a persimmon grove where you can pick your fill! Check the website for directions.
Arsenic and Old Lace - Philbrook Museum, Oct. 31st, 1pm. Free with museum admission.
Ida Red Thriller Dance Class - Brookside, Oct. 31st, noon -3pm. The free class starts at 2, followed by a costume contest at 3. Then, later on that evening, you can show off your newly learned dance at the
"This Is It" Thriller Bash - Doubletree Hotel Warren Place, 8pm-1am. There will be a special tribute performance and the largest thriller dance-off ever, followed by the "Jazzoween" costume contest. Tickets are $15 in advance at Starship Records & Tapes.
And if you haven't yet, be sure & catch Michael Jackson's This Is It during its two week limited engagement (sadly, from my understanding, not playing in IMAX here in Tulsa).
One last thing: Don't forget to turn your clocks back one hour this weekend - Daylight Savings Time ends Sunday morning! Be safe my little witches and ghosts, Happy Halloween! See you around T-Town! :)
