Red Bull King of the Rock


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

Think you have game? Then prove it on the pavement. Red Bull King of the Rock, the most prestigious one-on-one street basketball tournament, is back and open to everyone, no matter the skill level. Who knows? One minute you’re ballin’ on the streets, the next you’re suiting up for the Thunder ... OK, that’s a stretch. But the winner does get $1,000 and a trip to the World Finals. Registration is free and starts at 6 p.m. (games at 7 p.m.) at The Cage, 412 W. Reno Ave. Visit redbullkingoftherock.com.

You can see her work at an opening reception from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday at The Depot Gallery, 200 S. Jones Ave., in Norman. Admission is free. Call 307-9320 or visit normandepot.org.

Dammit, Oklahoma City. Why is it that every time we teeter on the edge of Big League City status, something happens to nullify the progress we have made?

Seeing double


CFN

Gazette staff
You might not see eye to eye with Tim Murray, the Republican candidate for Oklahoma’s 3rd District, but you don’t have to worry about him owning or using a robot look-alike. According to a press release from Timothy Ray Murray, “Rep. Frank D. Lucas is no longer alive and has been displayed by a look alike.”

A cannon projectile fired at a fun show (Did we just say fun show? We meant gun show.) recently traveled almost two miles before blasting a 15-inch hold in a Wyandotte couple’s home.

Hobby Lobby’s deceptive practices


CFN

Gazette staff
Hobby Lobby’s self-righteous stance on a host of issues ranging from healthcare to same-sex marriage makes it so much fun to highlight the deceptive practices of this Oklahoma City-based company.

A tower in your honor

Gazette staff
Millennials, you did it again. Not only are you still mooching off your parents and not voting because you’re too busy volunteering with nonprofits, but you’ve also gone and forever altered the OKC skyline.

Those crimson-bleeding Sooner fans who love watching their team battle the Texas Longhorns have reason to rejoice. Oklahoma will compete against Texas at the Cotton Bowl until at least 2025.

A Hard Day’s Night


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

The Beatles were fairly successful at the whole music thing, but they were pretty good at the movie thing too. A Hard Day’s Night — released at the peak of Beatlemania — is arguably the band’s most iconic big-screen adaptation, detailing its hectic lifestyle and the flat-out insane people who stalked the English icons on tour. See the film 5:30 and 8 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at Oklahoma City Museum of Art, 415 Couch Drive. Tickets are $7-$9. Call 236-3100 or visit okcmoa.com.

Freedom Fest


OKG7 things to do

As the iconic American film Team America: World Police so adeptly pointed out, freedom isn’t free. But Freedom Fest, the two-day celebration of the good ol’ U.S. of A., is as free as it gets. The event features live music, a children’s parade, fireworks (duh) and more, beginning at 5 p.m. Thursday and 8 a.m. Friday at Yukon City Park, 2200 S. Holly Ave., and Chisholm Trail Park, 500 W. Vandament Ave., in Yukon. Call 350-8937 or visit cityofyukonok.gov.

Bricktown 4th Fest


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

We like our things big here in America — everything from our football stadiums to our McDonald’s. That also includes our fireworks shows, and you won’t find one bigger than the one at Bricktown 4th Fest. The event attracted about 5,000 people last year to the iconic district just east of downtown OKC, and with an array of live music, food and cold beverages, this year’s promises to be bigger and better. The party begins 4 p.m. (with fireworks at 9:30 p.m.) Friday in Bricktown, at the corner of Sheridan and Oklahoma avenues. Admission is free. Call 236-4143 or visit bricktownokc.com.

Freedom of Expression


OKG7 things to do

There are few things we value more dearly in this country than the First Amendment (that is, of course, why it was the first). Freedom of Expression, a collaborative new exhibit by abstract painter Theresa Hurt and metal sculptor Basil Martin III, celebrates this idea with its thought-provoking interpretations. The exhibition opens Friday and runs through July 26 at In Your Eye Studio & Gallery, 3005-A Paseo St. Admission is free. Call 525-2161 or visit inyoureyegallery.com.
