Welcome to Tulsa: The former Oil Capital of The World that Charlie Sheen Invented In His Sleep.

Arnie's Bar: 318 E. 2nd Street, Downtown Tulsa
One of the MANY places to enjoy your St. Patrick's Day 2011 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Starting today the buzz word in and around Tulsa is NCAA. For those more focused on the present, it's St. Patrick's Day. Perhaps you are just getting into town to enjoy some basketball and support your team during the tournament this weekend. Once you have had your fill of barley based beverages this evening, and St. Patrick's has ended, there is still a full weekend of activity ahead of you. The bad news for sports lovers is that the games do not last 24 hours a day, the good news is that your are about to enjoy several days in the city that Charlie Sheen invented in his sleep, the city of Tulsa. If you have a desire to spend some of your hard earned money on something other that basketball and beer (and not necessarily in that order) I encourage you to check out these four Tulsa originals, and take a piece of Tulsa home with you if they let you. Even if you're a local and have never been before, now is a great time to blend in with the crowd, pretend to be from out of town and see what you have been missing out on.

Dwelling Spaces 

119 S. Detroit Ave.    Tulsa, OK 74120
Thursday-Friday  6:30am -8:00pm
Saturday  8am-8pm

Situated in Downtown Tulsa in the Blue Dome District, Dwelling Spaces offers a huge collection of gifts and locally made products that will make you the envy of all your friends back home. Grab a cup of coffee from Joebots Coffee Bar while your there.

Ida Red
3336 S. Peoria Ave.   Tulsa, OK 74110
Thursday-Saturday 10:30am - Late

Located in the district known as Brookside in Tulsa, and must visit stop during the tournament this weekend. Ida Red is Tulsa's home of memorabilia related to the world famous Cain's Ballroom. They also boast a nice collection of Tom's Shoes and bottled soda, just not on the same rack. There is also live music tonight, tomorrow and Saturday starting at 8:00pm

Topeca Coffee

115 W. 5th Street  Suite 169  Tulsa, OK 74103
(Also located inside the Hyatt Regency Hotel.)
Weekdays 6:30am - 6:30pm
Saturday 8:00am - 4:00pm
Sunday 10:00am - 4:00pm
With two locations situated in Downtown Tulsa, you have no reason not to enjoy Tulsa's very own "Seed-to-Cup" coffee house. This establishment is ran by one family, with one mission. They oversee the entire process from the plating of the seeds on their farm in El Salvador to the roasting of the beans right here in Tulsa. Check them out only when you're ready to be jealous that you don't have one at home.

The Dog House

Address: 1101 S. Detroit Ave. Tulsa, OK
No we don't have a subway system in Tulsa, and if you stand on the corner waiting for a taxi to drive by you could wait for weeks depending on your location. Those things our city lacks when compared to the larger costal metropolitan areas are but minor inconveniences when you are reminded that you will never get a Tulsa Dog (with cream cheese) in any other city, period. The Dog House started as Tulsa's own mobile hot dog vendor, and has since added to the permanent growth and development of downtown Tulsa with it's non-mobile, parking available, air conditioned and menu-expanded location in the former Phat Philly's.
