Love and Lust. Ladies (and some gentlemen), if you find yourself single on Valentine's Day, give yourself a gift--the gift of lust. The Men of Playgirl will, ahem, perform tonight at the Osage Event Center of the Million Dollar Elm Casino, 951 W. 36th St. North at 7pm. Tickets start at $15. Price goes up with the number of dollar bills you take to tuck into those little g-strings.

Campfire Tales. Tonight and tomorrow at 8pm, the Midwestern Theatre Troupe will present Down the 'Ol Hole, an authentic yarn weaved by local actor and playwright John Cruncleton. The post-apocalyptic tale follows a band of gun-slinging pig herders as they make their last stand in the Quachita hills. This one's for mature audiences only--audiences who will catch the Biblical and ancient Greek references. Show starts at 8pm at the Nightingale Theater, 1416 E. 4th St. Tickets are $8.

Hoop It Up. The University of Tulsa Golden Hurricane men's basketball team will play University of Texas-El Paso tonight at 7pm at the Donald W. Reynolds Center, 3208 E. 8th St. The Golden Hurricane has so far won 13 games and lost 10, so although it's ahead with the wins, one more couldn't hurt. For more, go to www.tulsahurricane.com.

Day of Rest. Take it easy tonight with a performance by Tulsa sweetheart Susan Herndon at Crow Creek Tavern, 3534 S. Peoria. Herndon's most recent release, 1,000 Pies, offers up a blend of folk, pop and blues that the artist has come to be known for. And the songs composed and sung in French show off that little extra talent that sets Herndon apart from her contemporaries. Her light, airy voice will surely settle your Sunday and get you ready for the impending work week.
Mon., Feb. 18
Up, Up and Away.

Buh-Bye Brice. Tonight marks the closing of local artist Brice Stephens' ongoing exhibit at Lola's, 5 E. Brady. Stephens paints on glass salvaged from old houses, using ink and acrylic paint. To the exhibit, he's added new prices and marked down prices on everything that's on display. The reception will include free wine and tapas beginning at 5pm. This will be Stephens' last show in Tulsa, so he says he wants to leave "as many pieces here as possible." If you're really a fan, Stephens will continue to commission work.

Saucy. G. Love and Special Sauce make yet another return to Tulsa by way of the Cain's Ballroom, 423 N. Main. The Philadelphia trio is known for its "laid back" and "sloppy" style, which encompasses the sounds of blues, R&B and rap. Tonight's show is all ages, with tickets $23 in advance and at the door. Doors open at 7:30pm, and blues/fusion artist Tristan Prettyman opens. For tickets and other info, visit www.cainsballroom.com.
