Granger Things

July 31 is the fateful night Harry Potter first (fictionally) entered the world. Celebrate his birthday at the Full Circle Bookstore in Oklahoma City during Harry Potter Trivia Night. Team up with your favorite Potter pals for a night in Hogwarts. Hogwarts, A History is not necessarily required reading, but it never hurt Hermione’s luck and wouldn’t hurt your team’s chances of winning the prizes available for the top three teams. July 31. Admission, free. (405) 842-2900 or fullcirclebooks.com.

This renowned group is known for hits including “Saturday in the Park,” “Hard to Say I’m Sorry,” and “Colour My World.” They bring their talents to the River Spirit Casino in Tulsa this week. August 1. Tickets, $76-$450. (888) 748-3731 or riverspirittulsa.com.

Take Me Back to Perkins

The Old Church Center is a storied building that has served Perkins for more than a hundred years. Though it began as—you guessed it— a church, it has since been restored and donated to the town as a concert venue. Cimarron Breeze concerts present Cherokee Maidens with Sycamore Swing. The female trio and their backing band makes audiences swoon with covers of Western swing favorites and a little bit of jazz. Bring your two-stepping boots and grab a plate at the potluck before the trio croons you into the night. August 2. Tickets, $30. (405) 612-3183 or cimarronbreeze.com.

Stand Bahn Mi

Try spring rolls, báhn mì, pho, and other Asian delights as you learn about the tales behind the tastes as told by tour guides. August 3. Tickets, $45. (888) 203-4469 or eventbrite.com.
