’80s it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

There were a lot of things about the ’80s that weren’t necessarily cool (parachute pants, anyone?), but the movies that came out in that otherwise-awkward decade were pretty awesome. Exhibit A: John Hughes’ comingof-age story Sixteen Candles.

See the Brat Pack classic 7 p.m. Tuesday at Harkins Bricktown Cinemas, 150 E. Reno Ave. Call 231-4747 or visit harkinstheatres.com.

Fastball it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

If you had a radio at any point in the late ’90s, “Fastball” isn’t just a baseball term to you. You probably know the Austinbased alt-rock band from ditties like “The Way,” which has been stuck in our heads since 1998. See them 8 p.m. Friday at Bricktown Music Hall, 103 Flaming Lips Alley. Chris Sullivan and Junebug Spade will also perform. Tickets are $20. Call 600-6092 or visit bricktownmusichall.com.

OKG7 things to do

While not necessarily a duel in the traditional sense (you know, the kind where the loser dies at the end), world champion bull rider J.B. Mauney and world champion bull, Bushwacker, are set for an old-fashioned manbull showdown in PBR’s Clash of the Champions rodeo event. The bucking battle goes down 7 p.m. Saturday at Chesapeake Energy Arena, 100 W. Reno Ave. Tickets are $18-$103. Call 602-8700 or visit chesapeakearena.com.

Technical difficulties


CFN

Gazette staff
Nearly 2,800 Oklahomans qualifying for Medicare have not been informed or enrolled due to yet another glitch in the federal insurance marketplace system. Applicants have been using the healthcare.gov website since Oct. 1, and usually, qualifying patients’ information is automatically sent to each state’s health care authority so applicants only have to fill out one set of forms to apply.
