In the mood for food, beer and lederhosen? Then don’t miss Oktoberfest in Choctaw this Wednesday through Saturday!

There’s live music all week long at the Wormy Dog Saloon with Ricky Stein, Still Breathing, Whiskey Meyers and others. Also, go see comedy’s lovable queen of mean, Lisa Lampanelli, at Firelake Grand Casino on Saturday night for just $24.
The Oklahoma Storytelling Festival is this Friday and Saturday at the SandRidge Energy Tower in downtown Oklahoma City.

The Norman Arts Council presents 2nd Friday Circuit of Art this Friday night. The event is free and open to the public and for just $2 you can ride the CART around town (it’s like a trolley) to all of the local art galleries.
