Home Brewed. Locally-brewed beer flows at a benefit for children's cancer research at Okie Brews, held at the Tulsa Country Club at 701 N. Union Ave. Live music from Travis Kidd, a silent auction, and lots of local liquid bread for the tasting. Tickets are $40 online (hey, it's a fundraiser) at okiebrews.eventbrite.com, or $50 at the door. The beer starts flowing at 7pm, and because of that, it's 21 and up.

Yes, Please. Art with a Latino flair will be on display at the Latino Chicano Art and Culture Exhibition at Liggett Studio at 314 S. Kenosha Ave. Artists from both Americas--including some local
talent--show their stuff at the family-friendly shindig, and there will be authentic Mexican food available, as well. Things kick off at 6pm, and it runs Saturday, too: 10am-4pm.

Color Me Bad. Wear a white shirt that you don't mind getting a little dirty. Start out at Veterans Park at 1800 S. Boulder Ave. and take on The Color Run. Runners start in waves beginning at 8am. At each of the five kilometers of the run, participants get doused in various colors. Finish line festival runs 9-11:30am. Good fun. Not clean. Sign up online at TheColorRun.com.
Dance the Day Away. This monthly gathering at the Gilcrease Museum, 1400 Gilcrease Museum Rd., offers art stations, interactive spots, and arts-heavy fun for ages 3-15. April's Funday Sunday focuses on Kiowa dances that feature prominently in paintings by Woody Crumbo. The event is free, but kids must be accompanied by an adult. 12-4pm.
Shouldn't Every Day Be Earth Day? The Oklahoma Aquarium, 300 Aquarium Dr. in Jenks, hosts an Earth Day Celebration on Monday, offering eco-friendly and eco-minded crafts and activities.
As more than two-thirds of the Earth's surface is covered by water, it stands to reason that an aquarium would want everyone to take care of the planet. This is an event about Thinking Blue.
Lay Down a Groove. Musicians have a chance every week to play for and with like-minded players at the weekly Depot Jams at the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame at 111 E. First St. Jams are where
some of the best ideas come from, so why not grab your axe and join in the fun? Kicking off at 5:30pm, the Depot Jam is free.
