You Just Can't Beat Spielberg. You can't, so don't even try. If the Guthrie Green's free screening of Raiders of the Lost Ark didn't convince you, you're a crazy person, but you have another chance to see ET: The Extraterrestial tonight. Remember how cute Drew Barrymore used to be? 8:30pm. Bring a lawn chair, and get there early.
Get Your Culture On. Not only does this day offer the monthly First Friday Art Crawl in the still-called-the Brady Arts District, but this month's edition also features the free Symphony in the Park concert by the Tulsa Symphony -- both celebrating a year of the Guthrie Green and kicking off the 2013-14 arts season. The concert starts at 7:30pm and ends with fireworks.
"Regatta" Isn't Just a Word That Only Rich People Use.
ALS Patient Services Outreach stages one of the oldest sailboat races in America today with the 34th Annual Charity Regatta on Lake Keystone at Windycrest Sailing Club. This year's version is Sailing for Steve, raising money to help those afflicted with Lou Gehrig's disease -- like Steve Snider -- live better lives in the face of the illness. To sail or just watch, get your information from Danny Ziegler at 918-857-3252 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
I Am Still the One Who Knocks. Walt's cancer may or may not be back. Jesse may or may not be burning down Walt's house. We do know that a) Bob Odenkirk is the funniest lawyer on television, b) Hank is totally screwed, and c) there is precious little time left to enjoy Breaking Bad, playing out the last episodes of the series Sunday nights at 8pm at the Circle Cinema.

Not Normally My Favorite Two Words to Use in the Same Sentence. Whiteside Community Center offers open gym time for preschoolers at Bikes, Balls, & You. It's not free, but at 50 cents (not FittyCent), it might as well be. You can find that in your couch, you know. Bring a riding toy if you've got one (and by "you," I mean "your preschooler"). 9:30-11am.
Let Me Tell You A Story. Finally getting Tulsa into the burgeoning storytelling scene, Ok, So... brings its monthly story slam to The Phoenix at 8pm. This month, storytellers will spin yarns on the subject of heroes. Free to listen, $5 to tell a tale.
They Are Totally Trying to Kill You. Really. The YMCA instructors at Fitness on the Green's Boot Camp are all smiles and super in-shape, but then they go and say something like, "You're doing great! Just 37 more!" and you get that much closer to dying along with all the other people who willingly showed up to be mercilessly tortured in the name of fitness. It's free, though. That's something. Bring water and a mat, and be there by 5:30pm, or they'll totally make you run laps for being late. Just like being in marching band again!
