Last month, I spent the first Friday night in Tulsa’s downtown Brady district, on an art crawl, that involved art galleries, pubs, shops, studios, and much much fun. I’m going for round two, and maybe I will see you down there this time. It is a great time in a wonderful area of the city. I parked near the Cain’s Ballroom and headed south down Main Street, then east and made a big circle, ending up at the SoundPony and then back to my car at the end of the evening.
The Brady Arts District association sponsors the First Friday Art Crawl. You can download the schedule at its website, and you can also find the schedules all over downtown. In fact, you could make Gypsy Coffeehouse a starting point of your night and have a drink in the cozy atmosphere there and plan your night. This place always has plenty of the schedules, plus other cool things to read . . . and people to watch . . . and music to listen to . . . and art to view. The bathroom is neat, too.
I am looking forward to the live graffiti art at Caz’s, Cats & Other Shit at 209-Arts Bar, and the Emerging Spring event at the Guthrie Green. Checking out new locally-made items at Mocha Butterfly is also high on the list, along with some chocolates from Glacier Confections. My honey Ken will be with me this time, so I’m sure we’ll be having the champagne of beers (and some wine or a gin and tonic for me) at one of the bars along the way.
We will enjoy the sights and sounds and I will also be leaving my museum calling card all over the place. If you find one of the cards in the photo, please comment below. The cards are advertising the next ROMP event: The Cruelest Month on April 20, which will include museum tours, refreshments, and a poem treasure hunt that I am currently planning.
