POSTED ON NOVEMBER 10, 2010:
Blowin’ Smoke. Comedy legends Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong come together at the Tulsa Convention Center, 100 Civic Center, to bring Tulsa a doobie inspired laugh riot. The Cheech & Chong: Get It Legal tour partners with the Marijuana Policy Project to promote policy change but mostly just ensures a good roll (on the floor) and gives audiences a pair of comedians to laugh at and with. Bringing new and classic material to the stage, Cheech and Chong are bound to bring down the house and offend a few patrons in the process. The doors open at 7 pm and everyone should be flying high by 8pm. Tickets are $41.50, $51.50 or $61.50. Prices increase $5 the day of the show. Visit tulsaconvention.com for more information.
Remember One. For some, Veterans Day is just a lucky day off work, but this not so random holiday is meant to honor the growing number of U.S. military veterans. Not to be mistaken as another political soapbox, this day of remembrance is simply set aside to pay homage to the 25 million veterans that served on America's behalf. So enjoy the day off work (or not), go to the park, take part in the parades and festivities, but be sure to join Americans nationwide in saying thank you to those in uniform.
A Dream Come True. Old, young and anyone with a pulse does not want to miss the highly anticipated collaboration of Elton John and Leon Russell. Come join the Union Tour as these two historic artists take the stage at the BOK Center, 200 S. Denver. These international stars bring decades of music to the stage, performing together and with their own bands. Theres No Tomorrow will likely be on the lips of any unfortunate soul that skips this amazing performance. So join the masses and get in line, doors open at 6:30pm and the show begins at 8pm. Tickets begin at $24.75. Visit bokcenter.com for more information.
Run and Chug. The James E. McNellie's Pub Run braves the brisk fall air and takes to the streets of downtown Tulsa. For all those that enjoy a good sweat, join the 4-mile run beginning at 3pm or for the equally enthusiastic but less fit type, there is a 1-mile fun run beginning at 3:10pm. While this jaunt across town will be filled with humor and good beer, this year's run also benefits Youth Services of Tulsa. Beer connoisseurs and avid runners alike will take off from sponsor, Fleet Feet Sports, 2nd and Frankfort, and end at James E. McNellie's Public House, 1st and Elgin. Refreshments and entertainment will be waiting at the finish line. To register and for more information, visit mcnelliespubrun.com.
Signature Sam. Recently inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame, Sam Harris takes the stage with the Signature Symphony. Come watch as this dynamic entertainer fuses his Broadway background and pop roots with a spectacular orchestra. Known for his ability to connect with his audience on a personal level, Sam's performances are boundless and encompass viewers from every background and lifestyle. Taking the stage at the VanTrease Performing Arts Center for Education, 10300 E. 81st St., Harris is sure to bring some crowd favorites and new masterpieces to life. Serving as a fundraiser for the Signature Symphony, curtain call is at 7pm. Tickets range from $25 to $60. Visit signaturesymphony.org for more information.
Don't be Sluggish. Grab a shell and slide into Gray Snail Saloon, 1334 E. 15th St., to enjoy a good brew or the more sophisticated liquor based beverage. Whatever the pleasure, the snail can accommodate. Gather up some friends, order a little snack and pick up a $2.75 24oz Tecate, all the while listening to the Blue Ribbon Brothers. A great place to belly up to the bar, that little gray snail is waiting for new friends to come by and join in the fun.
Spells of Witchcraft. The simple days of making music for the sake of the music have returned in the form of Matt Costa. Come out to Cain's Ballroom, 423 N. Main St., and enjoy the simple, often acoustic sound that encourages onlookers to lightly sway back and forth with lighter in hand. Touring with his newest album release, Mobile Chateau, Costa rolls onto Tulsa's historical stage with a new blend of '70s folk, rock and blues. Opening for Costa is the classically inspired rock band, Everest. Whether its Costa's new hippie sound or his more well-known sunshine guitar music that entices, don't miss this magic performance at 8pm. Doors open at 7pm and tickets are $19.

When Are Ya Gonna Come Down? While it is probably not by way of bubble, take whatever means necessary to get down to the Tulsa Performing Arts Center, 110 E. 2nd St., to see Wicked. Join Elphaba and Glinda on a journey through Oz that Dorothy never knew about. This award winning Broadway definitely defied gravity when it came to Tulsa in 2009 and is set to do the same this year. Presented by Celebrity Attractions, the untold story of the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda plays out on the Chapman Music Hall stage until Nov. 28. Tickets start at $30 for select performances.
