Carol it

OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

If you’re like us, when you read A Christmas Carol, you do it in your best Charles Dickens voice (or at least a British accent). Thankfully, Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park presents Dickens himself (played by Wil Rogers) to tell his story as he would have when he toured America in 1868. The reading starts at 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday at the Overholser Mansion, 405 NW 15th St. Tickets are $35. Call 235-3700 or visit oklahomashakespeare.org.

Various Artists — A Blackwatch Christmas Vol. III (Holly-Tonk & Jingle Beats)


Joshua Boydston
Three volumes in and A Blackwatch Christmas yet again nabs a spot on the nice list, showcasing a smattering of Oklahoma artists with charming new holiday standards. This year shakes up the status quo with two themed halves — serving up dusty, countrified Christmas ditties on the Holly-Tonk side and soulful hip-hop carols with Jingle Beats, both with joyful returns.

It’s here again: the holiday season. We’ve already stuffed ourselves and given thanks at Thanksgiving and survived possible mortal peril on Black Friday and have come away with some one-of-a-kind cool local goods on Small Business Saturday and Sunday.

Egged on


Gazette staff
Some people, like Tulsa resident Carl Neat, really like Christmas. But, as Neat found out the hard way, some really don’t. On Nov. 30, two vandals egged Neat’s house and obliterated the $2,000 Christmas wonderland he has built up and assembled in his front yard over the past 20 years.

OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

When we say, “Go see Trans-Siberian Orchestra,” it’s not a fancy way of telling you to take a hike across Siberia. No, literally, go see Trans-Siberian Orchestra as they perform their acclaimed rock opera The Lost Christmas Eve at 3 and 8 p.m. Saturday at Chesapeake Energy Arena, 100 W. Reno Ave. Tickets are $41.50-$71.50. Call 602-8700 or visit chesapeakearena.com.

OKG7 Open Christmas

OKG7 Dining

Kelley Chambers
Christmas can be a trying time, what with being surrounded by family and holiday cheer. For those who need an escape, a good drink, a bite to eat or all three, several bars around the metro will be open. These may not be places where everyone knows your name, but you can head to these friendly watering holes to celebrate — or to forget — holidays.
