I’m going to need a bigger calendar! Art, Sports, Fundraisers, Gnomes, Colorful Races, Walks … and oh yeah MOM!

Good Wednesday to you! Sometimes I think … I’m going to need a bigger calendar. I love my Google calendar but I might have to upgrade to a new WordPress Plugin for easier reading. So much is happening it’s amazing! You can like my Facebook page Leslie’sOKC  where I like to post photos from a lot of these events while they’re happening. It’s really cool to see all the happy faces in all the right places.

Here’s ALL that I’ve found going on:

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!

What’s Happening Wednesday with the Eggman & ME!

I’m super pumped! Today I started a standing radio gig with an old radio friend Eggman in The Morning on OKC’s True Oldies channel. He is sooo funny! Funny men are my weakness. I laugh at anything they say, even if it’s just ‘hi.’ He invited me to come on to tell their listeners everything that’s going on in Oklahoma City for the weekend leading up and boy do I love telling people where to go! Here’s a recap of what we talked about broken down into categories of what, I dunno!


  • Oklahoma City Museum of Art’s Photorealism Revisited Members‘ preview events on tonight, opens Thursday through April 21, 2013. Events throughout the run of the exhibit.
  • Myriad Gardens is opening the  Joy Richardson art show in the Crystal Bridge lobby area. Opening reception is Thursday, 5-7pm and is free and open to the public. On exhibit through February 28, 2013
