POSTED ON JULY 24, 2013:
Taking Most of It Off. Get down and not really all that dirty at Boomtown Burlesque, an evening with some burlesque dancers tonight at IDL Ballroom. There are worse things to do with your Thursday night than watch a few ladies have a good time while entertaining with a strip tease.
The Nightingale is at it again. This time, it's The Method and the Madness, an original work of theater by Joseph Gomez. Billed as a humorous romantic tragedy (is that a cop-out or not?) and said to cover such wildly divergent themes as love and mental illness, like almost everything at the Nightingale, it will be a fascinating evening. The show runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm through August 3.

Hitting for the Cycle. Baseball remains in full swing as the Tulsa Drillers take on the Arkansas Travelers. Grand Slam Saturday means it's Oklahoma Thunder night, and that means they'll be giving away Tulsa Drillers basketball jerseys. Yes, you read that right.
Expanding the Honey-Do List. If you're a home-and-garden type, find your personal nirvana in the not-sexist-in-any-way-named The Home & Garden Expo of Oklahoma & All the Things Women Love. Since the event name is as long as the title of any number of Johnny Depp pirate movies, it's sure to be a blockbuster. It runs all weekend at Expo Square, starting at noon on Friday.

Listen Carefully. I Said, "Bring a POSSE." Get your fellow Pokes fans together and head for the Cowboy Caravan, an alumni event hosted by the OSU alumni association and Providing Opportunities for Scholastic and Sports Excellence (and give it up to whoever worked so hard to acrosticize "POSSE"). Head football coach Mike Gundy will speak, and
Cowboy fans will get the chance to literally touch national championship trophies. Cowboy merchandise will be available, there's a kids' activity area, and Pistol Pete will be walking around presumably not using his pistol. At the Renaissance Tulsa.

Stand and Deliver. Neo-punk god of the early '80s Adam Ant brings his facepaint and Revolutionary War getup to the Cain's Ballroom tonight. He used to put on a hell of a show back in the 20th century. If he's half as good as he used to be, you won't want to miss this. And he hasn't gotten fat like Axl, either, so chances are, he can still move.
Knocking Back A Few. Speakers from past Ignite Tulsa events come back to share where they are now at Ignite Tulsa Happy Hour at the Tulsa Press Club. Essentially a preview for Ignite Tulsa No. 4 in September, Ignite fans can mingle with the speakers, and maybe even line up a speaking gig for themselves.

Keeping It Off. Biggest (and by "biggest," we don't mean "fattest") Biggest Loser contestant Julie Hadden Biggest Loses onto the stage at the Lorton Performance Center as part of the Girl Scouts' Women of Character series. Hadden will talk about her time on the NBC show, as well as the lasting, life-altering changes she's made in her day-to-day affairs. Rumor has it she's pretty funny, too.
