TLO Weekend Radar

Your most trusted-trusted source for all-things Oklahoma City is back with a new weekly feature, TLO Weekend Radar, highlighting a few of the most promising weekend happenings in the metro.

This weekend, we are particularly excited for a craft beer-fueled fundraiser, a feminist performance piece and a couple of seasonal favorites to get us in the mood for Halloween.

ARTon TAP: 15th Anniversary
Friday, October 19th | 7 – 10 p.m.
Oklahoma City Museum of Art

When craft beer and a good cause come together, you can count on The Lost Ogle to give an enthusiastic, double-opposable-thumbs-up. We’re evolved like that. Friday night, Oklahoma City Museum of Art is hosting the 15th year of ARTonTAP – arguably OKC’s best (i.e., most fun) beer-tasting event – featuring more than 80 beers from brewers (including local favorites Anthem, COOP, Roughtail and Stonecloud), food from local restaurants and live music. Tickets are $50 for members ($65 for non-members); proceeds benefit OKCMOA, helping it to maintain the special programs and exhibitions that make us a little less embarrassed to live in a state governed by Mary Fallin.

One Woman Sex and the City: A Parody
Friday and Saturday, October 19th & 20th | 8 p.m.
Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center, Oklahoma City

This year, Oklahoma Contemporary launched the ongoing Women in Performance series to amplify diverse, dynamic and thoughtful performances written and performed by women. One Woman Sex and the City: A Parody is a tribute to the beloved, girl-power original that takes the audience through a laughter-infused version of all six seasons of Sex and the City. You have two opportunities to catch this 8 p.m. show over the weekend. So grab your girls, a pair of 6-inch Manolos that can carry you steadily through a round or three of cosmos to your VIP front-row seats [we know you’re worth it], and let us know what you think.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show
Friday and Saturday, October 19th & 20th | 8 p.m.
The Boom, Oklahoma City

This is an international cult-classic, set inside a local cult favorite. Halloween and The Rocky Horror Picture Show always go hand-in-hand, but no one does this interactive singalong quite like The Boom. Bring your high-drama squad  – or your Kevin Stitt-fan relatives, if you absolutely must indulge your mean-streak  – for a night of raucous fun. Buy your tickets in advance, at the same time, to guarantee seats together. Tickets for the 8 p.m. show include 6:30 p.m. service of Meatloaf Dinner. And what could be scarier than that?

Spooky Pooch Parade
Sunday, October 21st | 2 – 3:30 p.m.
Myriad Botanical Gardens, Oklahoma City

Bring your furry friends (and your kids, if they are on a leash) down to Myriad Gardens on Sunday at 2 p.m. to revel in Halloween vibes with the Spooky Pooch Parade, hands-down the most fun of its kind in the city. Sponsored by Midtown Vets, this afternoon affair features a literal parade of costumed pooches, spooky music, OKC DISC DOGS performance, booths and Puppicinos donated by Starbucks. Guest judges will present prizes to the best and most creatively dressed pooches. All the fun of the Spooky Pooch Parade is free, but if you want your pooch in the parade (and in the competition, which is fierce), be sure to register your furry friend.
