What’s Happening Wednesday: Walks | Festivals | Burgers | Kolaches | Baseball | Thunder | Science | Music | Theatre | Art Walks & a Festival | Cirque | Free Museum Admission | Kentucky Derby | River Cruises and … LADY BUGS!

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!

Happy Wednesday to you! Another busy week but brrrrrr! Hey – if you’re working on an event, please let me know! My real goal with this calendar is to help those planning events so they can reference to see if there are any conflicts. No surprise- I’m having trouble finding these events booked for 2014. Heck, I’d be happy with events THIS summer and fall. E-mail me at leslie@lesliesokc.com.

Here’s what’s up this week, the last week of April: Go Thunder!

What’s Happening Wednesday… on Thursday, March 14-17

Happy Thursday! Yes I’m a day behind. I’ve dived into the Foster dog program and my first foster, a beautiful black Pomeranian named Jagger, got his surgery yesterday morning… interesting story that I’ll have to blog about later. Apparently it’s easy to fall in love with your first foster! Here’s what’s up for this wonderful rest of the week:

Well … I’m going to give you the fabulous Food Editor for NewsOK Dave Cathey’s article on all the great foodie/drinkie events! Click here.

Stairs | Sandi Krakowski | Photo Tips | Phillip Phillips | Ingraham out | Suraj | Regina Murphy | Simply Hired dud jobs

Happy Wednesday! Is everyone keeping their holiday invites in order? I totally messed up on a Facebook invite event last Friday that I really wanted to go to. Maybe I shouldn’t turn off those invite notifications. BTW: December 6, 7, 8 & 9 have so much going on for OKC. Refer to my calendar of events.

Here’s what’s on my mind:

OKC Thunder shirts possibly the sure gift for wayward Okies who still want to show pride. Seen at Blue 7’s Myriad Gardens Pop-up Shops

Congratulations on this wonderful Slice Magazine article for the ladies at Studio Six in the Paseo Arts District. Regina Murphy, Mary Nickell and Sue Moss Sullivan are highlighted. You can see a show on Regina’s works at JRB Art at the Elms, opening December 7  during First Friday Gallery Walk and of course Studio Six will be open on First Friday as well.

I was really happy Tony and Melissa won Dancing with the Stars All Stars last night. I was more happy for Tony. I’ve seen him go through all those dud celebrities and be so patient with them.

The Little Willie Triple Dog Dare stair climbing challenge is this Saturday in downtown with three buildings – Leadership Square, Oklahoma Tower, then the other side of Leadership Square is inviting. I want to say I’ll do it. Stairs kill me! Like – little flights of stairs kill me. Great idea!

I’ve been on a 30-day free trial for this blog guru Sandi Krakowski. Pretty good so far. Check back with me in 26 days. She’s really wacky. She’s like me but on super 10-hour Energy drink!

10 really amazing tips on taking great photos. Each tip from an expert photographer.

Steve Lackmeyer is so on target with this NewsOK article on MAPS3. I remember when I was at the Chamber during MAPS1 and there was just such negative publicity then everything opened and then it was the greatest idea ever! Just chill out everyone please. Patience is a virtue. I’ve been there a lot of times. Don’t rush architects, engineers and construction. It’s like the ole’ measure 500 times, build once motto.

I’ve quit watching American Idol years ago but I sure do like the latest winner’s song, Phillip Phillips’ Gone.

Laura Ingraham is leaving her current radio distributor. No mention of a new company sooooo, Tyler Media – this is your out. Turn KOKC AM into more self-improvement, live your life better programming… Maybe even local show about great businesses in OKC?

Life of Pi or Lincoln? I’m not one for period films nor films where animals drown but … I saw this article on the Life of Pi actor Suraj Sharma and became intrigued.

Tony Bennett will play himself on 30 Rock this Thursday. Speaking of NBC Thursdays, Rainn Wilson posted on his Facebook page this spoof of the Two and a Half Men star Angus T. Jones trashing his show except he uses it for The Office. Love him!

Just for fun, I put a tick on Simply Hired alerts for PR/Marketing/Social Media jobs in OKC … this is sad: Customer Service Rep – Data Entry Online Typist. How does this job have anything to do with that criteria? And that’s like – all there is. 

Gift idea tip: Do you have a true Oklahoman who moved to San Francisco that has an amazing job with Google and has everything? The OKC Thunder shirt seen above in the Blue 7 section at the Myriad Gardens new Pop-Up Shops concept got a like from her. So I’m thinking a lot of things OKC Thunder, especially for wayward Okies are the sure thing.

OKC needs just a few more things to do this week!

I continue to be amazed at everything this city has to offer! If you’re game, rest up. If you’re working on an event, enjoy the ride! Chart your course. Here’s what I’m doing:

So um… what are your plans?
