I Love A Rainy Night

Just because Tulsa's a bit of a soggy mess after a workweek of rain doesn't mean it's not a good night to get out of the house and do you some Tulsa.

Joe Andoe, 100 Shirts for $100

Head downtown to Dwelling Spaces, at 119 S. Detroit, for a hip little art event to benefit Tulsa Girls Art School. Stop in tonight between 6-8pm and score a one-of-a-kind t-shirt hand-painted by Tulsa native Joe Andoe. Each shirt is $100, a small price to pay for an original work of art by a painter of Andoe caliber and fame, and every bit of that money goes to TGAS. Come hungry, because Elote Cafe & Catering will be there with lots of yummies. (Photo from the Dwelling Spaces events page on Facebook.)


Like good music and drinkable drink specials? Who doesn't? Check out William Joseph Band at this week's edition of Soundproof, an Urban Tulsa Weekly-sponsored event. Find it free and open to the public at Tulsa Press Club, in the historic Atlas Life Building at 415 S. Boston Ave., from 5-7pm. (Photo from the William Joseph Band Myspace page.)

Trivia Quiz Bowl at Joe Momma's

If you haven't heard talk of the trivia craze that's hit T-Town in the past several months, then you definitely need to get out more. Start tonight by hitting up Joe Momma's Pizza, downtown just north of Second and Elgin, at 9pm for some team trivia. Proceeds of the event benefit a new nonprofit organization each week, and tonight it's Operation Aware. (Photo from Live Event Trivia, your go-to source of good trivia times.)

Break out of downtown and into Utica Square at 21st and Utica tonight for its Summer's Fifth Night free outdoor concert series. This week features the talents of the Tulsa staple Mid-Life Crisis Band. Bring a chair (skip the blanket - it's been raining all week, remember?), score some dinner at Polo Grill or Stonehorse Cafe and be ready to rock at 7pm.

Also, 3rd Thursday at Philbrook is tonight and going to be pretty awesome. David Barringer is going to discuss his book "There's Nothing Funny About Design." 6:30pm at 2727 S. Rockford Rd. The event is free with admission, which is about 8 bucks, and there's a cash bar. Woo hoo!

Cool, Holly! Thanks for chiming in with that.

Did I miss any other smashing events slated for this evening, anyone?

Another thing, and this is of interest to everyone who has signed up to be on the Tulsa Does Tulsa Run "team:" Fleet Feet at 61st and Yale is hosting its orientation meeting tonight for its No Boundaries 5k training program, set up to have you running by the Nov. 22 Route 66 Marathon 5k. The program officiall begins Monday, Aug. 31, at 5:30pm.

Eric & The Adams is playing at Utica Square tonight for Born To Play: Live at THE GAP. 7-9pm, I believe. Other bands slated to play the other Gaps in Tulsa.
