Hello, Guthrie! I hope you are having a wonderful July! What wonderful events we have here! Anyone who thinks that living in Guthrie is boring, hasn’t been paying attention!
The Okie Noodling Festival has been going on for a week now, and is drawing a lot of attention! A Legendary Venue, Bands, Food, Noodlers, Giant Huge Fishes!!! What more could anyone want? Well, maybe some big-time television folks filming the whole thing for season 2 of Mudcats on the History Channel would be something more!! All of that can be found at the weigh-ins at The Rock-A-Way Tavern all month! Check our web calendar for details on days and times!
You can also find music in many places around town! The Halftime Grill has live music every weekend for a rollickin’ good time. Vintage ’89 has Singer/Songwriter night on Wednesdays, Karoke on Fridays, and Live Music on Saturdays; the 21st – Becca Brock will perform with her fantastic repertoire. Wednesdays are Movie Night, Open Mic Night on Fridays, and live music on Saturdays at Kenney’s Irish Pub; New Realization will pump out some Ska they’re starting at 8 p.m. on the 21st. And to top it off, Byron Berline will be having a concert at his Double Stop Music Hall on the 21st! They will start warming up around 7:30, and you never know who might drop in for a set!
