Things to Do in Tulsa Tonight

Looking for something to do in Tulsa this Thursday night? I know of a few things. Keep checking back with this list as the day progresses - I'm adding to it as I spot events during my weekly Tulsa web troll for weekend fun.

The Pearl Farmers' Market 2010 opening
When: 4-7pm
Where: Centennial Park, 6th and Peoria
Get your green on at this first Pearl Farmers' Market of the 2010 season, Tulsa's urban evening market. As the season continues, look for live music and a food tasting/cooking demonstration of the in-season vegetables. Yum, yum.

“Larry The Cable Guy” Look-Alike Contest
When: 5-6:30 p.m.
Where: Osage Million Dollar Elm Casino, 951 W. 36th Street North
Guests who enter will be judged on how much they resemble Larry The Cable Guy. Eatin’ britches allowed! Please, no walking farts. Participants will be judged by remote radio host (A K95.5 FM radio DJ) who will determine the winner, second and third place. The winner gets a pair of tickets to Larry The Cable Guy show this Saturday, second and third place will win other gifts provided by K95.

Third Thursday at Philbrook/Tulsa Green Drinks
When: 5:30pm
Where: Philbrook Museum, 2727 S. Rockford Ave.
Philbrook has partnering with SR Hughes to present award-winning designer and sustainability activist, Stephanie Odegard. Ms. Odegard has committed herself to the marriage of fine design and social consciousness. Discover her journey from serving in the Peace Corps, to exploring modern design and the support of traditional artisanal craftspeople. In celebration of the fortieth anniversary of Earth Day, learn about the process of Nepal’s hand-knotted rug industry through demonstrations of hand carding and spinning wool. And use your plant knowledge to identify plant dyes and maybe win a prize.

Tax Day Tea Party
When: Gates and open mic at 4pm, program at 6pm
Where: Expo Square, 21st and Yale
Special guests include Vision America founder Dr. Rick Scarborough, federal prosecutor Vicki Behenna, Broken Arrow “American Idol” contestant Alaina Whitaker and several other exciting public figures and elected leaders. Parking and admission are free. Bring your lawn chairs, flags, signs, copies of your previous year's tax returns for the shredder and, as the USA Patriots put it, your patriotic attitude. Make George Bush and Ronald Reagan jokes at your own risk.

Re-Make a Sweater with Make:Tulsa
When: 6:30pm
Where: Cosi, 4929 E. 71st Street
Since April 15th is tax day, and Make:Tulsa knows that probably took the shirt off your back, the group of local craftistas is going to have an evening get together to learn to upcycle an old pullover sweater into a new stylish cardigan. Cost is $5. You’ll need to bring: Old sweater; Scissors; Tailor's chalk; Ruler or measuring tape and straightedge; Large embroidery needle; and Worsted weight yarn. For more details, check with Make:Tulsa online.

Life Drawing: Open Studio
When: 6:30pm
Where: Philbrook Museum, 2727 S. Rockford Ave.
These open studio sessions allow participants to practice drawing nude male and female models through gesture sketches. Intermediate to advanced skill level. Ooo la la!

Jennifer Knapp and Derek Webb
When: Doors at 7pm, Show at 8pm
Where: Cain's Ballroom, 423 N. Main Street
Amy Courts opens. Tickets are $27.

Into the Woods
When: 8pm
Where: University of Tulsa, 800 Tucker Drive
With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by James Lapine, Into the Woods weaves together the plots of some of the most recognizable Grimm fairy tales - Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel, and Cinderella. The musical explores the impact of wishes, the consequences of action, and the question of what lies beyond "happily ever after." Does marrying a prince really make you happy? What DO you do with a dead giant in the backyard? What is the role of family, and what happens if we go Into the Woods alone? Tickets are $14.

Moon Over Buffalo
When: 8pm
Where: Broken Arrow Community Playhouse, 1800 S. Main Street in Broken Arrow
On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom.
