What’s Happening Wednesday: Jazz | Anime | Lower Bricktown Live | Roller Derby | Full Moon Bike Ride | Summer Solstice | Tarzan

FJust when I thought it was going to be a not so crazy week in Oklahoma City, BAM! I took a closer look and there’s some pretty great stuff happening. And once again, with variety and for so many demographics. I love it!

Friday is Summer Solstice. It will be the longest day of the year. Sunrise is at 6:15am. Sunset is at 8:48pm. What will you do for the longest day of the year?

Don’t forget to tune into Eggman in the Morning with Shawn Carey on KZLS 99.7 The True Oldies Channel every Wednesday morning at 7:30am.

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 a sad week’s it’s been huh? Eggman and I talked about whether or not I should go into the KZLS to do my weekly What’s Happening Wednesday then I started seeing all these events pop-up and even the existing ones offering to be donation drop-offs. We decided I would round up with I could find and that would be what we talk about. I posted out on my Facebook a call-out and got quite a bit back. I would also like to thank the Norman Arts Council. They had a great list to get me started with but I added even more to it because it just kept growing. Check back too because I bet more will come up! Something tells me this will continue for quite some time.
