Happiness is being outside

At least according to my dogs and I tend to agree. We are all really hoping that this nice weather sticks and that the Thursday forecast is just a mistake!

Below are Yoda and Spock’s top five favorite outdoor activities to do around Tulsa.

5. Visit the dog park. There are two off-leash parks to choose from, Biscuit Acres, 5804 E. 91st St., and Joe Station, 2279 Charles Page Blvd.

4. Take in a movie at the Admiral Twin. They are most looking forward to the release of “Monsters University” this June. Check out showtimes and more at

3. Bark in the Park. Pooches are welcome to Wednesday night games at ONEOK Field. Be sure to bring along vaccination records and enter through the Oil Derrick or Arvest Entrance.

2. People watch from the patio at Cosmo Cafe.  Located on Brookside at 3334 S. Peoria Ave., there are plenty of dog-friendly patios located around Tulsa. Check out our directory on for more.

1. Actually, they really don’t care what they are doing as long as they are outside! And that’s the truth. I hope everyone is taking advantage of this beautiful weather before we all start complaining about how hot it is.

The weather is gorgeous today and I hope everyone is able to get outside with their pets and take advantage of it!

You never know how long weather like this will stick around in Oklahoma. According to the forecast, it looks like we should at least have nice weather through the weekend.

Luckily, there are plenty of pet-friendly outdoor activities around town. Just take your pick!

Hound Dog Blues Festival: The two-day event will run Sept. 21 to 22 at Chandler Park and feature performances by blues-rock musicians. The event benefits local rescue groups and is also hosting an adopt-a-thon Saturday morning. Tickets are $10 Friday night, $15 all day Saturday or $20 for a two-day pass. View the schedule, buy your tickets and more at Leashed pets are welcome.

Admiral Twin Drive-In: Catch a flick outdoors with your canine friend. Leashed dogs are always welcome. For movies and showtimes, visit

Dine alfresco: Ok, so it isn’t exactly an event… but everyone’s gotta eat! Check out this list of pet-friendly patios in the Tulsa area and then take your pooch out for a meal!

Don’t forget the dog parks: Have you taken your buddy to the dog park lately? If not, this is the perfect time to do it! Your dog will love a visit to Joe Station or Biscuit Acres.

I hope this beautiful weather continues and everyone enjoys their weekend!
