Weekend math

Shopping + music + food = a fantastic Friday and Saturday

It was only 70 degrees out this morning when I met a friend to go running (or, in my case, stumbling/lurching/whining). 70 degrees! I may or may not have sang a few snippets from “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah” on the way home, because nothing welcomes a lovely, cool morning like a song from a racist Disney cartoon.

 

So, the weekend. There’s a lot going on — hopefully the nice weather actually sticks around.

Local designer Annah Chakola Ramsey is debuting her new line of jewelry and purses at a trunk show tonight at A Date with Iris. The event is from 5:30-9 p.m. and will also coincide with a fabulous new window display from the Iris ladies (seriously, they create the coolest displays).

The new line was inspired by her travels in Asia, and the gorgeous bags are actually using hand-embroidered fabric she sourced from the Hmong people. If you can’t make it to the show tonight, Annah will also be around from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday.

Tonight is also the kick-off of the Night Food Market, a really fantastic idea that brings together the growing contingent of food trucks in one location for a smorgasbord of late-night eats.

You can find the Night Food Market outside Elemental Coffee (that’s N.W. Eighth and Hudson) from 8 p.m. until 2 a.m. today. Besides food trucks, look for drinks from Coop Ale Works and Elemental.

This is hopefully the start of a new foodie tradition that will set up the last Friday of every month. For more, follow it on Twitter.

Finally, Dustbowl Arts Market presents its fifth semi-annual arts and crafts show Saturday on Campus Corner in Norman.

Besides the regional arts-and-crafters lined up along Buchanan, there will also be a kids’ area and two stages (with 20 local bands set to perform). The market runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and bands will perform from noon to 2 a.m.

The Shock Labyrinth

Holds as much ‘Shock’ as a 9-volt.


Horror

Rod Lott
If Hollywood ever resurrects its craze of remaking Asian horror films, it's safe to say The Shock Labyrinth won't be high on its list. However, if it were, there's plenty of room for improvement.

Painted Skin: The Resurrection

Your ‘Skin’ looks lovely.


Action

Rod Lott
While not fully lucid, Painted Skin: The Resurrection excels from a standpoint of visuals. Whether that’s worth an entire viewing depends on your tolerance for fantastical whimsy.
