One glass for beer. One glass for brushes. Don't mix them up at Twisted Spike Brewery's Charity Pint and Paint Night.

Technicolor Strokes for Twisted Folks

Support a worthy cause as you dip your paintbrush and sip local beers—just don’t forget which glass is which. Twisted Spike Brewery’s Charity Pint and Paint Night invites amateur artists and beer enthusiasts to help raise funds for TECHO, a Latin American nonprofit that fights extreme poverty. Every ticket sold contributes to TECHO’s current plans to construct a sports slab in Peru and a water filtration system in Mexico. Twisted Spike encourages patrons to celebrate the season of giving, though they will get to take home what will surely be a hand-painted masterpiece. November 19. Tickets $40. (405) 297-9961 or twistedspike.com.

Finders Keepers

Art is all around—on the street, in a junk drawer, maybe even in your pocket. Artist Kathy Tibbits will visit Tahlequah Creates to host an Assemblage Class using only found objects and readily available materials. Participants are invited to bring any quarter-sized trinkets or small items at their disposal and creatively incorporate them into a collage. The two-hour course will see attendees transform their trash into treasure and perhaps gain some perspective in the process. November 20. Admission, $20. (918) 797-5016 or facebook.com/tahlequahcreates.

Kookoo for Okie Puffs

Joining the Koodookrew might sound like the start of a cultish disaster, but the Austin-based jam band has only ever hypnotized fans in a musical sense. Koodookoo and Electric Okie Test will join forces in Norman to put the “Deli” in psychedelic. Electric Okie Test, Oklahoma’s favorite Grateful Dead tribute band, will open for the Texas jam outfit, making for an extremely free-spirited double feature. Must be twenty-one or older to attend. November 21. Tickets, $7. (405) 329-3534 or thedeli.us.

Circus in the Sky

Stillwater thrill-seekers would be wise to snag a front row seat when Cirque Mechanics presents 42FT: A Menagerie of Mechanical Marvels at the McKnight Center. Classic big-top acts will take the stage with a few technological advancements, including a rotating tent frame and a galloping mechanical horse. Strongmen, acrobats, aerialists, and other performers will demonstrate their extraordinary skills to an entirely original score. You won’t know quite what to expect when the circus comes to town, but it’s guaranteed to be a show you won’t want to miss. November 22-23. Tickets, $25-$95. (405) 744-9999 or mcknightcenter.org

Walk This Merry Way

There’s no better way to step into Christmas than with the annual Holiday Stroll down Main Street Duncan. The city sidewalks will be bustling with treats to sip and snack on as shoppers roam from store to store. Many shops will serve up sweet deals to accompany their tasty refreshments, making this stroll well worth the walking. Santa is also set to make an appearance; if that guy can squeeze a pleasant stroll into his schedule, so can you. November 23. Admission, Free. facebook.com/mainstreetduncan

Dashing—Carefully—Through the Snow

Yukon is fixing to get lit in the most literal sense. Christmas in the Park, a drive-through light show known to attract festive folks from miles around, opens in Yukon City Park this weekend. The three-mile stretch of holiday spirit is comprised of three inter-connected parks, which combine to showcase 4.5 million lights and over five hundred unique lighted displays. Cozy up in the car to your favorite holiday station as you cruise through the luminous winter wonderland. Come and enjoy the only occasion during which distracted driving is perfectly acceptable. November 23-24. Admission, Free. yukonok.gov
