What’s Happening Wednesday with the Egg: Daddy, Dave, Plaza, Seniors, Tuna, Huey, Hippie, Chalk

Hola! Hope you’re having a great week. I am. Just feel really together this week. It’s a great feeling to have. The heat is on OKC and for once, I don’t hate it! I embrace it! Last weekend was insanely filled with events. Too bad the Charlie Christian Festival just canceled. I thought that was odd. And when are we going to get over the fact that this city can have more than one event on one weekend? We’ve arrived! We have arrived.

Father’s Day is Sunday. Thanks to MetroFamily Magazine for their wonderful list of things to do on Sunday. It’s posted below.

The featured image I’m using is of me, my sisters Janet and Kathy and my dad from 1968 in a traditional backyard little pool. I’m the baby! A little tribute to my dad, Bob Spears.

Here’s what I have going on this weekend:

What’s happening Wednesday OKC with the Eggman!

So what a crazy Memorial Day Weekend, huh? Hard to believe June starts on SATURDAY! All these great events benefiting the tornado victims are incredible. The OKChefsRelief raised $40,000 alone! Amazing! And the donations coming in by the millions! Oh and I did NOT get my tickets to the Healing in the Heartland concert. I’m fine with watching it on tv because I just can’t wait to see the performers and the crowd. I’m super pumped. Of course if tickets became available to purchase I would buy them.

Thanks for having me on Eggman & Shawn Carey! Listen every Wednesday morning, 7:30 am on KZLS The True Oldies Channel.

Oooohhhh mah goodness! Wow! So much happening this weekend and … IN MAY! Here’s all that I found. If I’m missing something please let me know. Even though this posts out on my social media platforms I can still go in and update my blog posts. Please do not hesitate to email leslie@lesliesokc.com. My sources are EVERYTHING: People, newspapers, radio, tv, internet, FACEBOOK INVITES (19 this week alone!), eblasts and more … I think it’s safe to say that we’re all great promoters of our individual events. We take such great pride. Okay, enough! It’s late on Tuesday and I have to get up and be ON for my Eggman in the Morning on KZLS 99.7 the True Oldies channel. I kind of flubbed up my interview! Can’t be on all the time!

PS. Watch me on KFOR with Ali Meyer this Thursday at 6AM to promote First Friday Gallery Walk in Paseo. I’ll have Mother’s Day gift ideas from the artists!
