New Lunch Place at Jewish Center. Fig Café and Bakery is opening at the Zarrow Campus of the Jewish Federation of Tulsa. With a name the First Book of Kings -- "Each man under his own vine and fig tree" -- Fig aims to be a gathering place for lunch for people throughout Tulsa.
Currently only open for lunch, Fig's hours are Monday through Friday from 11am to 2pm.
"We wanted to create a place that is a warm and welcoming community gathering spot offering, the lunch crowd, options that are innovative while still classic," Drew Diamond, executive director of the Jewish Federation said in a release.
The café is located at 2021 E. 7st St. and can be reached at 918-495-1100.
New Business Sponsors Graphics Contest. FASTSIGNS -- a new visual marketing firm in Broken Arrow -- is sponsoring a contest for a local business or organization to win what it calls a "customized graphics makeover."

"Every organization has a story to tell and this contest gives us a fun way to reach out to our community and help them tell it."
Interested businesses and organizations may enter the contest by visiting metamorphosing.com/617. Entries are due March 10, and the prize is scheduled to be awarded April 11.
Tulsa PAC Continues to be Beacon for
Entertainment World. The Tulsa PAC Ticket Office received the International Ticketing Association's 2013 award for "Outstanding Box Office." Terri McGilbra, manager of the ticket office, accepted the award in Florida on Jan. 30.
The award is all the more prestigious given the global reach of the International Ticketing Association, which represents box offices for public venues in some 20 countries.
"We are honored to accept this award from the ticketing industry's leading organization," PAC Director John Scott said in a release. "Our dynamic box office serves ticket-buyers who purchase tickets through our regional ticketing company, Myticketoffice.com, at 13 venues in six cities and two states."
Myticketoffice.com has certainly come into its own since its foundation in 2005. According to the Tulsa PAC, it processed $19 million in total ticket sales during the City of Tulsa's fiscal year 2012.
"Other regional PACs run their ticket sales through myticketoffice.com and the Tulsa PAC gets a fee for each sale," PAC marketing director Nancy Hermann told UTW last year. This award just provides further evidence, as Hermann put it last year, "Tulsa is an arts town."
