Numbers Game. You have about one month remaining to catch these guys in action. The Tulsa 66ers take on the Colorado 14ers tonight at the Expo Square Pavilion, 17th and Louisville. It's crunch time for the boys as their wins column is looking dangerously similar to their losses column. After recently acquiring guard/forward Ronald Dupree, the 66ers are looking for a boost as they head into the tail end of the season and the playoffs. Dupree's defense might be just the boost they need. Last time the team played Colorado they etched by with a double overtime victory. Game starts at 7pm. Go to exposquare.com for more.
Extra! Extra! The Tulsa Press Club presents the 75th annual Gridiron: Dam Foolishness or Baby, It's Cold Inside music and dance production at the Liddy Doenges Theatre, Tulsa PAC, tonight at 8pm.

Proceeds from the show, sponsored by the Tulsa Press Club Educational and Charitable Trust, will go toward journalism scholarships. Local songstress Rebecca Ungerman directs and serves as the vocal coach for this theatre-in-the-round production. Tickets are $20.
All Dogs Go to Hicks. You could drink a lot of beer on St. Patrick's Day. You could go around pinching people not wearing green. Or you could take your dog on a walk. Irish Paws 2008 invites you and your favorite furry companion to Hicks Park, 3443 S. Mingo Road, for a morning of outdoor games and activities. "In the past, some dogs came in costume, some just enjoyed the time outside in the park--but everyone has a lot of fun," said Marci Joha, Hicks Recreation Center's park manager.
All dogs attending need to be on a leash and patrons are encouraged to bring a canned pet food item to benefit Tulsa charities. Fun starts at 10:30am. Free and open to the public.
Fight for Your Right. Guys seem to love it when chicks fight. So ladies, grab your man and head out to Gilcrease Museum, 1400 Gilcrease Museum Road, today for the viewing of Iron Jawed Angels, a film about the last leg of the fight to win the right to vote for American women. The film is a fresh, contemporary look at this critical point in history. Starring Hilary Swank, Frances O'Connor and Angelica Huston, the film focuses on the work of young suffragettes Alice Paul and Lucy Burns, and follows their battle until the ratification of the Constitution in 1920. Reel starts rolling at 1:30pm in the auditorium. For more information, call 596-2768. Free.
Asian Translation. The Dennis R. Neil Equality Center art gallery, 621 E. 4th St., features the work of local artists Shawn Wilson and Merry Schepers in their exhibit "Now and Zen." Wilson's specialty is Japanese ink-brush painting (pictured above: Rollercoaster), something she studied under one of the few bona fide masters of the art form in the US. Schepers works with porcelain, clay and multimedia and shows in galleries in Oklahoma and Arkansas. She participates in Tulsa's Blue Dome Arts Festival. The exhibit runs thru March. Visit okeq.org for more information.
Brutal, Just Brutal. Meet Marge. An experienced comedian, she has a biting, head-on approach to her delivery. However, she doesn't do it alone. Meet Susan. A former female wrestler turned comedian, she represents a sweet southern belle gone bad girl. The energy of The Untamed Shrew combines for an evening of good, not-so-clean fun tonight at the Loony Bin, 6808 S. Memorial Dr. And while the ladies' perspective is definitely feminine, they're not out to bash men. It's time to add some laughter to your midweek. Call 392-5653 to make reservations. The Shrew will be in town until March 23.
I Said Dance. The Continental, 421 E. 1st St., is packing the house these days with its weekday concerts. Live music on a school night? Come on! Tonight the classy downtown bar brings Lucy and The Popsonics (pictured above), Elliott the Letter Ostrich and Ghosts to the stage. The night begins with a little electronica, then turns to a sea of new wave with a hint of indie rock, and concludes with some psychedelic vibes that are sure to make this a late, late night. Essentially, it will be an all-around dance party not meant for the weak in the knees. Check out some myspace pages if you are curious about the lineup.
Good Golly. These guys had no intention of bringing the Revival back, but something so good doesn't just go away, especially when it's such a staple to the American ear. Credence Clearwater Revisited plays tonight at the Osage Million Dollar Elm Casino at 7pm. The former CCR bassist and drummer decided to form the band in 1995 when some friends asked them to play a couple concerts. So they gathered some fellow musicians and started bringing "Fortunate Son," "Down on the Corner," "Bad Moon Rising," and all the hits back to the spotlight. We're glad they did. Call 699-7667 for more information. Tickets start at $25.
