Check out the celebration of Tulsa's Hispanic community, along with live music, lots of food, and a family-friendly day. Saturday's festivities start at 1pm, but the festival also runs Friday from 5-11pm and again on Sunday from noon to 9pm. Head for the Imperio Event Center at 14009 E. 21st St. and enjoy.
Music and Meat. Those in need of barbecue, made-to-order brunch fare, and live music need look no further than the Gospel Sunday Brunch, held at Cain's Ballroom at 423 N. Main and featuring the culinary stylings of Oklahoma Joe's BBQ. Brunch begins at 10am and runs until 2ish. Call 918-355-0000 for tickets, and don't miss out.
The Phattest of Rhymes. Put on your beret and grab your bongos, because Cypher 120 rocks the spoken word. The evening is an open mic night for poets, musicians, vocalists, and emcees. Hosted by poet Written Quincey and a house band that literally has a sax player named Elton in it, how can this not be a cool evening? Literary shenanigans commence Monday nights at 8pm at Blu, located at 111 N. Main St. Start working on your soul patch now.
By Them, For Them. Hit the Circle Cinema for The Big Picture Film Festival, featuring student-made films. Students are high school- and college-aged, so you're not likely to have to suffer through anything Elmo-related. Then again, an Elmo-centric buddy cop movie set in the gritty streets of Detroit might be fun to watch. The Circle Cinema sits at 10 S. Lewis, and the joint starts at 6pm.
