Second Saturday

Head to Guthrie for some late shopping

Guthrie is making the most of the long days with Second Saturday, a once-a-month event that shines a light on the quaint town’s shops and restaurants. Every second Saturday of the month (this weekend), shops will stay open until at least 8 p.m., plus stay open the next day (that’d be a Sunday) from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Downtown Guthrie’s shopping area is really walkable, with shops along Oklahoma, Harrison and Division, so this is a great opportunity to make a weekend out of it by adding a night at one of the town’s many Victorian B&Bs. The weekend culminates on Sunday afternoon with a tea dance ($10) inside the old Santa Fe Depot.

The tea dance runs from 2:30 to 5 p.m. with music from the Al Good Orchestra, but there are free dance lessons offered at 2 p.m.

If you visit this weekend, be sure to check out the Bow Wow Luau, an annual fundraiser to benefit the Friends of Guthrie Animals. Proceeds go to Logan County’s spay and neuter program.

The Bow Wow Luau is held at Acton’s on Harrison Street, and tickets are $10. There will be live entertainment, raffles and a wine pull, plus a Hawaiian-themed meal.

Six years down ... and still killer.

Television series

Rod Lott
Sins and sons — those are the driving themes for the sixth season of Dexter, arguably the anchor of the Showtime cable network. Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall in his Golden Globe-winning role) is a Miami Metro PD forensics analyst who moonlights as a serial killer of serial killers.

The Inbetweeners Movie

Where's Clark Griswold when you need him?


Rod Lott
Spun off from the hit British TV series that recently was remade poorly for MTV, The Inbetweeners Movie follows the original show’s core quartet of socially awkward lads on vacation — er, sorry: “on holiday.”

A solid hit.


Phil Bacharach
In chronicling the real-life tale of Jackie Robinson, who broke Major League Baseball’s color barrier in 1947 when he joined the Brooklyn Dodgers, 42 is schmaltzy, sentimental and shameless. There is no dabbling in highfalutin niceties like subtext or nuance. Writer-director Brian Helgeland, who penned the hardly simplistic L.A. Confidential, keeps his focus simple and is content to let his hero worship fly.

The Fugitive: 20th Anniversary Edition

Still runs like a charm.


Rod Lott

Although The Fugitive was a monster hit in the summer of 1993, it seems to have been lost to the ages. It shouldn't. Perhaps Warner Home Video's 20th-anniversary Blu-ray will help see to that. Remember, folks, this movie was up for Best Picture at the Academy Awards — an action film!
