Friday Night in the Big Town: Cabin Fever Edition

What’s up, stir crazy readers?  Tired of being in the house yet? Tired of the kids watching cartoons for approximately 16 hours a day?  Ready for some sunshine?  Well, I don’t think that’s happening.  Unless you’ve rented a Bobcat your driveway is probably still as treacherous as mine and what’s even worse is that your neighborhood streets are probably the same.  Sure, they’ve plowed the city streets, but you just can’t get to them.

Well, fear not.  I’ve recently discovered that my Honda Civic is, in fact, an all-terrain assault vehicle.  So, if my car (I call him The Phantom Ninja because of the color and body shape) can make it to Wal-Mart for more coffee and ibuprofen, you can get out and about this weekend.  Not that there is really a whole lot going on, just to let you know up front.  Also, any event listed here is subject to cancelation because of the weather.  Just let that Seasonal Affective Disorder settle in real nice this weekend and try not to kill your spouse or roommate.

Here’s your Friday Night in the Big Town.

February 4:  FAUXKISS at the Samurai Saki House

Yeah, you read that right, this is a faux Kiss band.  Yep, apparently people still make Kiss cover bands.  The more I look at the name the more I just keep saying “focus,” which is probably not something you have if you think spending your time in a Kiss cover band is a good idea.

I can honestly say that I don’t know much about Kiss.  I have seen Gene Simmons without makeup and I know that I have never been so terrified.  Oh wait, okay.  I know.  I am familiar with the title “Detroit Rock City” so that counts.  Although, I like to say that I live in “Norman Rock City.”  It’s true.  We have a music festival.

February 5:  The Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond book signing at Full Circle Books

One of the things in your contract when you sign onto The Lost Ogle is that you must make fun of The Pioneer Woman.  It’s not that we don’t like her, or anything.  I’m sure if homegirl came down to the OKC Metro and offered to fix us up some country cooking we wouldn’t turn it down.  In fact, I think Ree Drummond should consider this her formal invitation to cook us up some grub at Lost Ogle headquarters.  Then we could chat it up and maybe come to some sort of understanding about each other.

And then I’m sure that we would steal her secrets.  We do have Ogle moles, after all.  While she was telling us the virtues of using vanilla paste over extract someone would steal her mojo and we would use it to become famous and to go on The View and Throwdown with Bobby Flay.

February 5-6:  Bank of America Museums on Us Weekend at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum

Bank of America account holders get in free this weekend at the museum that used to be called The Cowboy Hall of Fame.  I guess this is just Bank of America’s little way of giving back something to their customers right before Wikileaks rips the floor right out from under them.  So before you switch over to a different bank, maybe stop by The Cowboy Hall of Fame this weekend.  Then you can move your money to save it when all hell breaks loose.

That’s all I got for you stir crazy readers.  I won’t even mention the precipitation that’s in the forecast this weekend.  Try to get out of your houses and again, please don’t murder your spouse or roommate.
