Very Different From Chai Tea

Improve both inner and outer strength at Tai Chi w/ Bee on Wednesdays at Tower Center at Unity Square in Bartlesville. The art of tai chi is for everyone, regardless of fitness level.

Lovely Bones

“To save the festival, they must break the festival.” Pretty good tagline to a movie, right? Except that’s literally what the Bare Bones Film Arts Society is doing this year. Their Bare Bones Music & Documentary Film Festival is showing audiences some award-winning music videos and documentaries in Muskogee’s historic Depot District. Come out to also see script-to-screen movies that are accompanied by live screenplay readings. The rest of the film fest slate with full narrative features is scheduled to return in October. August 6-8. Admission, free. barebonesfilmfestival.org

Ears of a Champion

It’s out with the old and in with the Thursday Night Singo + Pint Night at Jojos Bar & Grill in Yukon. The musical counterpart to Bingo has players listening for songs they know, instead of random numbers, to see if they’ll be the one who takes home a prize. To keep vocal cords well-lubricated, patrons can order Jojos’ featured pint of the night and take the glass home with them. August 6-27. Admission, free. facebook.com
