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.
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.
Call (405) 751-6266 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
Enjoy five Balvenie Scotches with five gourmet courses prepared by chef Jonas Favela at MMR Prime Steakhouse’s Balvenie Scotch Dinner, 6-9 p.m. April 19.
These dishes are BONKERS. Duck confit with a 12-year DoubleWood Scotch, pork belly with orange marmalade and a 15-year Sherry Wood Scotch, cedar plank scallop, sous vide steak au poive and a chocolate-banana-toffee-popcorn for dessert.

Most of us prefer to forget what grade school tasted like, but Taste of Wilson (6:30-8:30 p.m., April 20) is helping raise funds for Wilson Arts Integration School. The evening of food, drink and community is located at The Sieber, 1309 N. Hudson Ave. Tickets are $50 each and help pay for drama instruction, teacher training and a new playground.
Shoutout to review sponsor Citizens Bank of Edmond, which puts on a monthly food truck, music and shopping festival in downtown Edmond. This month’s Heard on Hurd is 6-10 p.m. April 21 on Broadway and 1st. Follow the action online with the hashtag #JoinTheHurd and bringing friends and family to this all-ages event.

From 5:30-8:30 p.m. April 23 you’ll get one-on-one training with the staff as you learn to grind, season and stuff your own sausage. Each ticket guarantees you will get to take home 10 lbs. of finished sausage and get a hands-on, behind-the-scenes, exclusive experience in our kitchen and butcher shop. Tickets are $75 and available here.
If there’s one thing Norman needs, it’s more alcohol. Thank the good lord that The Winston, 106 W. Main St. in Norman, is here!
