Never Grow Up. Remember how awesome it used to be to think about never growing up and flying away to a magical place where you can pretty much do whatever you want, including fighting pirates? Give a kid you know the same chance to enjoy those feelings at the free showing of Peter Pan today at the Circle Cinema, 10 S. Lewis. Think happy thoughts and get there early as this free event is on a first-come, first-serve basis and is sure to fill up fast. Don't forget to thank the good people at the Tulsa City-County Library for bringing Peter back to the big screen for this special showing. Showtime is 3:30pm.

Quiet Please. Paintings are not by nature a very loud medium for the arts. Art can make you become still in quiet contemplation. Art can make you imagine what sounds could come from the scene before you. Tonight the Self Gallery, 2012 E. 11th, is holding a Silent Auction for the works of Chicago artist J. Quillian. This will coincide with the opening of an exhibition of Quillian's works spanning 30 years of his career. Observe quietly, bid silently and celebrate loudly if you win. The reception lasts from 7-10pm. $100 reserve on all items. Call 582-5527 for more information.
Sweet Sounds. It has become increasingly rare to find a locally owned record store these days. Luckily for all of us, Under the Mooch, 1423 S. Harvard Ave., has been keeping things local and selling independent music for two years. To celebrate their two year anniversary, the store is having a day-long BBQ and concert with Tulsa favorites Wighead, Callupsie, Cecada, Here is There (above), Hiphoptamus and many more. 13 bands in all.
The grill fires up at noon and food and drinks are free while they last. Beer will also be sold. The bands start playing at 2pm with Guardant kicking things off. Visit underthemooch.com

Trials and Tribulations. We have our fair share of disasters in this country. Heck, we live smack dab in the middle of Tornado Alley. We know what it can be like to deal with the destruction of Mother Nature's whims. This year we've seen a lot of really bad things happen overseas and it's easy to feel helpless. Well today with the show entitled "Trials: A Benefit Sale of Art for International Disaster Relief," the local Tulsa Artist's Coalition Gallery, 9 E. Brady, is giving you a way to help disaster victims overseas and get prints of some pretty sweet art from local printmakers Maxine Richard and Yiren Gallagher. The prints include etchings, linocuts, aquatints, woodcuts and drawings. Small prints are $20 while the larger sizes are $40. Admission is free. 2-5pm. Call 592-0041 or visit tacgallery.org for more.
Girls Night Done Right. Often times Mondays are met with a frown, slumped shoulders and the realization that you are about as far away from the weekend as possible. Well ladies, now you've got something to look forward. The Melting Pot, 300 Riverwalk Terrace, and Miss Jackson's of Utica Square are giving you the royal treatment. Enjoy a four-course fondue meal, enough to make the night on its own and then enjoy the on-site makeover from Miss Jackson's line of ReVive skin care products sure to make you feel like a million bucks. Tickets are $35. Call 299-8000 or visit meltingpot.com for more.
Smacked Around. Sometimes people workout to feel healthy and have plenty of energy for their days working in a nice office somewhere. Sometimes people like a good workout so that when they hit their coworker with a chair it really stings, more so than if one had skipped that last twenty reps on the bench press. Are we talking about City Hall? Well, maybe, but not specifically in this case. The WWE is brining the stars of SmackDown and from Extreme Championship Wrestling to the Tulsa Convention Center, 100 Civic Center, for some good old-fashioned, body-slamming times. Wrestling superstars to appear include The Undertaker, Batista, Matt Hardy and our favorite here at UTW the precarious fighting Leprechaun, Hornswoggle, among many others. Ticket range from $22-$62. Call 877-TULSA-CC or visit tccarena.com for tickets.
Viva La Musica. Summer is the time for live music and the time to sit outside and enjoy yourself. You know what goes great with live music and the outdoors? Margarita's. Shocker right? Luckily for you Los Cabos, 151 East Bass Pro Drive in Broken Arrow, can provide all of the above and they are doing so tonight with the music of Travis Kidd. Sit back, relax, enjoy some tunes and think of Oklahoma sunsets, spicy queso and ice cold cervezas. It doesn't get much better than that. If Broken Arrow is too far a drive for you, the Los Cabos on the Riverwalk, 300 Riverwalk Terrace, has all the live music and outside dining your heart can possibly desire. Call 355-8877 for more information, or check out the Live Music listings on page 40 for more Los Cabos weekly concerts.
Symbols of Strength. The greatest human stories come from a place of hope. Cancer survivors have shown us all in one way or another how appreciative of life we should be. Tonight at the Dennis R. Neil Equality Center, 621 E. 4th St., Breast Impressions hosts "Beauty Beyond Breast Cancer," an exhibition of casts of actual breast cancer survivors breasts. This exhibit is meant to raise awareness of this deadly problem many women face while celebrating the beauty of those who have fought and survived. The models of the casts will be there to share their stories of hope and survival. The reception begins at 5pm. Call 691-3874 for more information.
