Is there a chance you’ll get hit by a tornado wrapped in a blizzard made of fire this week? Yes. That’s Oklahoma for you. But until the actual rain of frogs begins, you just have to live your life like you’re going to continue existing, and that means doing fun stuff. As always, there are more events scheduled further out on the Events tab.
Tour De France
Put away your bikes and your steroids and those weird nylon shirts, it’s not that kind of Tour. The Greens Country Club, 13100 Green Valley Dr., presents a four-course wine dinner by executive chef Jim Camp with wines curated by sommelier Ian Clarke from 7-10 p.m. April 19. Explore the regions of Vouray, Rhône Valley, Champagne and Burgundy without leaving your chair. Tickets are $75 each and the event is ages 21+ only.
